Water in Fiji

from w
A brief letter in the Fiji Times says a lot about the state of water in Fiji and the worry about the way it is being extracted to be bottled and sent overseas. Also, in the ordinary homes of Fiji, I have noticed that people do not take much care about how much water is used.  People who live in drought countries know to use minimum water for the necessary tasks of the day.

Water issue
Fact: Earth is dying. Fiji is in drought. Others will follow. Floods too. Citizens are short of water. Questions: How many million litres of water are - and have been - bottled and exported from this country? And with what long-term surface and geological effects? Answers please. Suggestion: As a matter of priority create a Ministry for Climate Change and Water Sustainability.
