Water stress measures the competition over water. A country in water stress has a water demand higher than the supply. Unfortunately, a recent report from the Worldwide Resource Institute announces 17 countries in extreme water stress. Those countries: Qatar, Israel, Lebanon, Iran, Jordan, Libya, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Eritrea, United Arab Emirates, San Marino, Bahrain, India, Pakistan, Turkmenistan, Oman, and Botswana are facing extreme difficulties. As a result, the Inhabitants of those countries can’t fulfill their water needs. Also, the food production is now very limited. The causes are multiple but the main one is the inefficient agricultural system used. In this article I propose you to see if aquaponics can help the global warming situation
The current system
Unfortunately, the current food production system in place doesn’t work with nature. Indeed, the soil is used as a dead support and all life and organic matters are gone. With nothing to retain moisture, all water used is deeply drained. Therefore, only a very low fraction is used by the plants. Current events are proving that we can’t continue producing food this way. Hence, We must change the model now!
The solutions? Permaculture! Working with a living soil able to retain the water from the rain.
In this channel I deeply focus on aquaponics as a solution to decrease global warming. I provide a technical support to all of you who are interested in this technique. In short, we must produce more food ourselves in a sustainable way. This is an easy and obvious way of changing this world.
