Water scarcity is a global issue but we need to address it locally. What is causing Earth to run out of fresh water? Climate change is the driving force behind water scarcity and why millions of people are running out of water. Humans are altering the natural water cycle on Earth. We have disturbed approximately three-quarters of the Earth’s ice-free land surface through agriculture, deforestation and wetland destruction. When one thinks of water scarcity common trends that occur are places like California, Cape Town, Tokyo, or Beijing. It tends to be easy to put issues in the back of our heads that do not affect us. However, these regional crises of water quality, quantity and timing are global because they affect all human populations and ecosystems on earth. Natural disasters contribute to water loss as well.
