Thirsty planet
Remember, it’s not the planet that needs saving, it’s us. #savethehumans

Something that irked me today was the news that we are drinking too much water, too quickly. Yes we are living on a thirsty planet. We waste water in the shower, in the bath, needlessly flush the toilet and our pipelines are in a state of decay, in the UK at least. What irked me is that somehow the emphasis and urgency surrounding our thirsty planet always focuses on the actions of people and not vampirous corporations, perpetuating overpopulation myths. 

  
It's not 'the people' sucking aquifers dry to make bottles of cancer inducing happiness that's then transported half way around the world. It's not 'the people' using antiquated farming practices to grow cattle and crops wasting billions of gallons of water in the process. It's corporations, raping the planet for a buck and at the same time setting us on a course of impending doom. 

We can change it, if we want to. We just have to be daring enough to do so. Remember, it's not the planet that needs saving, it's us. #savethehumans
