QUESTIONAre you optimistic that we are making progress in ensuring that we will have clean, usable water in the future?

ANSWERTyler Wood, Director of ESG & Sustainability at Gravitas Carbotura

ANSWERI’m a naturally optimistic person but unfortunately we’ll be seeing mass migrations due to water quality and scarcity in our lifetimes within the United States. There are already examples we are seeing in other countries and this is just the beginning. We are making great progress with tremendous efficiencies and technologies, but not to the scale necessary. There is far too much water waste and ultimately not sustainable for our generations to come. 

QUESTIONAre you optimistic that we are making progress in ensuring that we will have clean, usable water in the future

ANSWERThomas Schumann, Thomas Schumann Capital

ANSWERI am an optimist. In answer to your question only Benjamin Franklin comes to mind: “When the well is dry, we know the worth of water.” (Poor Richard’s Almanac, 1746)

QUESTION Are you optimistic that we are making progress in ensuring that we will have clean, usable water in the future?

ANSWERMark Gero Partner GEA@27TM Oceanic Carbon Capture Protocol

ANSWERNo, I am not.  In the distant future, maybe. In the near future having clean usable water for all is unlikely, if we continue in the direction we are going today. The very rich will have it…. eventually.  The masses will fight and die for it.
