Don’t we have enough water on the earth for everyone, why are there water shortages?

    A prime cause of the global water concern is the ever-increasing world population. (This is all the more obfuscated by climate change’s wildcard effects on water supplies.) According to the World Bank, world-wide demand for water is doubling every 21 years, more in some regions. Water supply cannot remotely keep pace with demand, as populations soar and cities explode. The World Bank reports that 80 countries now have water shortages that threaten health and economies while 40 percent of the world — more than 2 billion people — have no access to clean water or sanitation. More than a dozen nations receive most of their water from rivers that cross borders of neighboring countries viewed as hostile.
