New data from NASA claims that a third of the world’s water reservoirs are running low and numerous causes, including climate change, are being implicated. Twenty-one of the world’s 37 aquifers are past the tipping point of being sustainable. The most troubled areas are closest to the equator. However, the ones holding the most negative balances are the Arabian aquifer and the Indus Basin. According to this report from RT, scientists, governments and households around the world are going to have to consider alternatives to solely relying on aquifers.
