Pumped Dry: The Global Crisis of Vanishing Groundwater

It's easy for most of us in New York to take fresh water for granted. We are blessed to always have it available from our faucet. However, in other places in the world today 1 in 9 people (~850 M) lack access to safe water. Due to agricultural practices, pollution and increasing population, water resources are being strained as never before. It's a dwindling natural resource that is turning what should be a basic human right into a commodity to be bought and sold. Many experts agree that the world, including the United States, is standing on the brink of a global water crisis.
However, there are things we can do to respond positively to the coming crisis that might mitigate many potential problems. Join the Green Team in learning more about this topic on Sunday March 24th after the 11:00 service. After enjoying a light brunch, we will view "Pumped Dry: The Global Crisis of Vanishing Groundwater" (60 minute film by USA Today), and then consider together how we might respond to the water crisis facing so many of our neighbors.
