Water - More Precious Than Oil

Wasser - Kostbarer als Öl

Water, which is infinitely precious, much more precious than oil, since part of the water comes from underground seams that, according to experts, will be pumped dry 20 to 30 years from now. Another important part comes from the more than 20 years of de-salinization plants at the Red Sea and the Persian Gulf. But the construction of such plants is extremely expensive and their maintenance equally so. Criticism of Saudi Arabias huge water consumption by the FAO and concern about future generations are showing the first signs of having an effect. There are plans for the future of planting grains that use less water and treating more sewage water. In the modern city of Dubai on the Persian Gulf more than 60 percent of the sewage water is purified and used, for example, for watering the extensive green areas.
