Here he describes the many ways that human civilization is dependent upon water. He notes that rising sea levels will result in the displacement of millions of people who live in coastal regions. He points out that water shortages are destined to influence the lives of billions of people — and are already the cause of armed conflicts. On top of these problems, pollution also creates many new risks and health issues. He notes that there seems to be little political will to address these problems.
