Clean water, a necessity for life, is becoming a scarce resource. Although water constitutes up to 60% of the human body and covers 71% of the planet’s surface area, water technologies receive just 0.12% of venture capital funding for early-stage companies. Water technologist Sonaar Luthra issues a clarion call to create a global water data collection service, similar to a weather service, to track water shortages and contamination and to protect supply chains and food safety. Drink in Luthra’s powerful message. It may save you and the planet.
