It’s 2019, and almost a quarter of the human beings on Earth do not have safe, clean drinking water. It’s true in much of Africa and Asia, and it’s also true in Flint, Michigan. You know, solar power and Wi-Fi and educational opportunities and a thousand other things are super important too, but they all pale in comparison to the basic human need for water. And so the United Nations has declared March 22 World Water Day, a day to learn about the deficiencies in the worldwide water supply and what actions we can take to help address them.
