No Water, No Bali - an island in a global problem

From the Bali Advertiser (a good source of local news and comment) -thanks Katrinka.

That's Lake Batur in the photo - in a volcanic crater.

Wasteful use of water can be seen everywhere. Hotels water the sand where there are tables and chairs. Stores and homes water sidewalks and streets in front. I think they need a good PR firm to whip up public awareness and support to implement more education and action. Foreigners I think should emphasize that water conservation is a world-wide urgent problem and Bali and Indonesia could become good examples, leaders in the movement, waking up from their suicidal nap to help wake the rest of us up- dc
