I'm 50 years old, but looked like a person aged 85.I suffer from serious kidney problems, because I do not drink enough water.I'm afraid I do not have much time left to live.I was one of the oldest in this community.I remember when I was 5 years old child.Everything looks different.There are many trees in the park, houses with beautiful gardens,and I can enjoy the bath for half an hour.Currently we use towels with mineral oil to clean our skin.Previously, women had beautiful hair.Now, we have to shave his head to keep them clean without using water.Then, my father..
used to wash his car with water coming out of the hose.Now, my son does not believe that water can be used in that way.I remember that there used to be a warning SAVE WATER on posters, radio and TV, but not addressed.We thought that water will always be available forever.Now, all rivers, lakes, reservoirs and underground water beds are either dry or contaminated.Industry almost stopped and unemployment reached dramatic proportions.Desalination plants are the main source of labor and workers receive part of their salary in the form of drinking water.Armed attacks on the streets for a jerry can of water is very common.80% of food is synthetic.Previously, the amount recommended for drinking water for adults is 8 glasses per day.Currently, I am only allowed half a glass.We now have to wear disposable clothing,and this increases the amount of garbage.
We are using septic tanks now, because the sewage system is not working because of lack of water.Views out of the population was horrible: wrinkled, emaciated bodies due to dehydration, full of sores caused by ultra violet radiation which is now stronger without the protective shield of the ozone layer.Skin cancer, gastrointestinal infections and urinary tracts are the main causes of death.Because excessive drying of the skin of young people aged 20 years look like 40 years.Scientists investigate, but there is no solution to this problem.
Water can not be produced, oxygen is also degraded due to lack of trees and vegetation, and intellectual capacity of a new generation of highly disturbed.The morphology of spermatozoa in men has changed a lot.As a result, babies are born with deficiencies, mutations and physical deformities.The Government requires us to pay the air we breathe,137 m3 per day per adult.People who can not pay are expelled from "ventilated zones", a mechanical lung which is very large with solar energy.Air quality is not good, but at least people can breathe.In some countries, where there are still some green zones crossed by rivers, the place is guarded by heavily armed soldiers.Water became a very coveted treasure, more precious than gold and diamonds.Where I live, there are no trees, because it seldom rains.When there is precipitation, it is acid rain.The season has been affected by the atomic tests and by contamination from industrial pollution of the 20th century.We have been warned to keep the environment, but nobody cares.He asks: Daddy! Why no water? Then, I feel a lump in my throat!I can not help feeling guilty, because I belong to the generation who contributed to the damage to the environment or simply did not notice any warning signs.
I strongly believe that in a short time life on earth will not last longer, destruction of nature reached now an irreversible stage.How do I want to go back and make mankind understand ...... That we still have time to save our Planet Earth.
