This video has a couple main points one being water scarcity. Water scarcity is a region that isn’t able to support the people or living things in the area with freshwater. Their are two types of water scarcity Physical and Socio-Economical scarcity. Physical water scarcity is when an area is cannot support the people living there with freshwater. An example for Physical water scarcity would be if a lake that thousands of people relied on for freshwater vanished. Socio-Economical is when a controlling power doesn’t have the funds to supply the people with freshwater. A good example for this is Africa, the country is too power to dig wells or transport clean water to most of its people. Another main point was how serious water scarcity is in 1970 close to half the people in the middle east didn’t have access to clean water. Also how quick freshwater is being used in America one of the biggest reservoir in America has gone down hundreds of feet, which could be really serious if drained completely.
This video enhanced my learning by showing the main points then having bullet points to go with it. I find that to be a easy way to write notes when the video tells you exactly what’s going on. It also did a good job of describing what these affects where and how they will affect us. The video also did a great job on giving us statistics on the water crisis with how many people are without it, how many feet the reservoir has gone down, and streams that have vanished in Philadelphia.
