In 2018, the world was hit with a record amount of water scarcity, with about two-thirds of the world’s population facing severe water shortages.
But the problem only increased when it came to the United States.
According to a report from the Center for Biological Diversity, nearly a quarter of all Americans live in areas that have either been in a drought or are expected to be in one for at least the next several years.
And as the world warms, it’s expected that even more Americans will face water shortages in the coming years.
The report estimates that at least 2.3 million Americans have lost access to clean drinking water, and more than a million are currently at risk of losing their homes and livelihoods.
The situation is dire in many parts of the country, with parts of Texas experiencing an acute water shortage that could soon become deadly.
The Center for Food Safety estimates that as many as 1.8 million Americans are living in areas with “extreme” water restrictions, and it is expected that by 2050, those restrictions will be as severe as in 2018.
This water scarcity crisis has a lot to do with climate change.
In a recent report from Columbia University, researchers found that temperatures in the Arctic are already higher than they have been in at least 3,000 years, meaning more extreme weather events are becoming more likely in the region.
These extreme weather patterns can be a threat to people’s health and the economy.
In addition to the impacts of climate change, it also has a direct effect on people’s drinking water.
According the Center’s report, people living in parts of California, Nevada, Arizona, Texas, and Washington are experiencing water shortages due to drought and wildfires.
In addition to those states, Colorado, Texas and New Mexico have already seen severe water restrictions in 2017 and 2018, with more restrictions expected to come into effect in the months ahead.
It’s unclear what will happen to these restrictions in 2018 and beyond, as the government will be forced to take steps to address the shortages.
The Environmental Protection Agency announced last month that it would be implementing water conservation policies in some of the most impacted states.
But many in the industry aren’t optimistic that the Trump administration will act on the matter.
The EPA has already said that it is looking into the possibility of water conservation measures in the future.
For now, the most immediate concerns for the American people are the growing number of people in the West experiencing water restrictions.
A recent study by the Pew Research Center found that as the West is expected to experience more extreme drought and wildfire conditions in the next few years, people are particularly concerned about water scarcity.
The report notes that more than half of all residents living in states that were experiencing extreme drought or wildfires in 2017 reported having to curtail their water usage.
According a report by the National Center for Public Policy Research, many Americans are now concerned about their water resources.
