Let us work together as a global community to share and manage the waters of the world so they do us all good instead of harm. This can be done if all the countries in the world work together and put more funds and effort into controlling where the water goes. Highly developed societies share the natural resources among everyone and don’t let a line on the earth mean that some people have to go without water while others have enough or sometimes way to much.
COP 22, the Conference of the Parties, organized by the UNFCCC, took place in Morocco, in November of 2016. Government policy makers and delegates from around the world met to continue the implementation the momentous Paris Agreement which addressed climate change on many levels. We’ll follow their progress as they go forward with plans and commitments to take definitive action to protect our shorelines as well as inland areas from flooding, ease drought, etc.
At COP 22, the United Nations Environment Programme presented an Interactive Digital Map that spotlights all 180 entries for the 2016 Global Youth Video Competition. The map was created by Mark Terry who also produced another Digital Map presented by the UNEP at COP 21, spotlighting various scientists around the world and links to videos as one of the steps to educate everyone regarding sustainability. This system will continue to be used by the UNEP as a way to educate and convey information regarding Sustainability and advancements being made.

It is high time we start to harness the water coming off the polar ice caps before it goes into the water and it is up to the world leaders to make this happen. We must spend the money now to gather this melting ice before the water does all the damage it will inevitably do, which will cost billions in the end to clean up.
Global warming isn’t going away and will only intensify, causing a rapid increase in rising sea levels. How many storms can take place before the oceans, rivers and lakes become so polluted with debris and chemicals that they are a hazard to marine life and people alike.
…and then there is the other extreme.
At the same time, global warming makes the drier areas of the world more prone to drought. We need to move water around the world so the seas don’t get filled with fresh water and instead it gets delivered to those in such desperate need of fresh water. It is insane that we let the ice bergs melt away into the ocean, when that oxygen fresh water could be saving lives if we could just harness it and get it to them.
With our all technology, we should be able to manage our waters better so that millions of people get the water they need, while others have too much.
Our leaders need to take actions to prevent the floods and rising sea levels due to melting polar caps. We can pay for it now or we can pay for the clean up later.
