What is water all about

  The effects of droughts is very detrimental on the lifes of millions of people along with the environment. Droughts can cause crop failure which makes farmers go poor. It causes millions of people in third world countries to not have fresh drinking water. Droughts can even make some people rich.

  Every year there is at least 10 people that die as a result of droughts weather this is the result of extreme dehidration or suicide. Some farmers become overly depressed and kill themselves as a result of droughts and not knowing how to deal with the problems as they come about.

  When there are serious droughts in the crop producing regions in the United States crop failures tend to drive up the cost of produce. Some people see this as a good thing because the people who's crops don't die become very rich. It in fact hurts more than it does good. It causes people to not buy as much produce and can lead to very bad side effects all as a result from droughts.

Portrait Of A Drought: Finding Water Where It Ain’t

Portrait Of A Drought: Finding Water Where It Ain’t | APES:  Impacts of droughts | Scoop.it
