22nd Day of Lent 2012 – St Patrick’s Feast

“Water is ubiquitous in our land, so cheap that its almost magical attributes are easily forgotten. But fresh water, worldwide, is running out, and the consequences … will dominate global politics for at least the next generation.”  Dave Withrow, 30/04/11
