Last Call at the Oasis

The global water shortage is the biggest social issue facing the world today.

By looking at the trailer of Participant Media‘s ‘Last Call at the Oasis’ by oscar-winning Jessica Yu it feels like we have another essential ‘water’ related film for everyone to see.

With the 2011 released Spanish feature film ‘Even the Rain’, the free French online documentary ‘Home’, the brilliant interactive documentary Waterlife’ and the 2008 Blue Gold: World Water Wars’ (full film online) it looks this Documentary is again an overdue wake-up call for us and the world politicians. The Water topic in Documentaries has surpassed a total of 40 already.

FACT: the global water crisis will be the central issue facing our world this century. We as a species can manage this problem, but only if we are willing to really act. Whether you consider yourself an environmentalist or not, it’s time to speak up for clean, safe water. You may not think the politicians will listen, but try it and see.

Have a look at this 3min. video to find out what your daily water footprint is.

Act now behind your laptop by joining organizations like Jointhepipe or thewaterproject. Or from your own house by using a reusable water bottle and using less water on your lawn or garden. (more plants die from overwatering than under watering anyway) Don’t let the water run while you wash your dishes. Eat less red meat.

Sorry, meat-lovers, but it takes 1,800 gallons of water to produce one pound of beef, more than three times that of chicken or pork, and exponentially more than vegetables.
