Every day, 2 million tons of human waste are disposed of in water courses.

Water is the primary medium through which climate change impacts the earth’s ecosystem and people. In developing countries, 70 percent of industrial wastes are dumped untreated into waters where they pollute the usable water supply.

Climate change is predicted to have a whole range of impacts on water resources. Variation in temperature and rainfall may affect water availability, increase the frequency and severity of floods and droughts, and disrupt ecosystems that maintain water quality.

We know that, but why are we still witnessing images like these?
