Climate change could diminish drinking water more than expected
Date:11/6/2007

According to the United States Geological Survey, about half the country gets its drinking water from groundwater. Fresh water is also used nationwide for irrigating crops.

In order to obtain cheap water for everybody, we need to use groundwater, river water, or lake water, Ibaraki said. But all those waters are disappearing due to several factors --including an increase in demand and climate change.

One way to create more fresh water is to desalinate saltwater, but that's expensive to do, he said.

To desalinate, we need energy, so our water problem would become an energy problem in the future.
