Guest Speaker On Ancient Water Collection
I am fascinated on how we need to improve on everyday things we take for granted, such as how we collect rain water. I am equally fascinated by how hundreds of years ago they had much better ways of doing these things. We are so used to thinking of ourselves as a fully developed world and that we have the best "proven" techniques. We delude ourselves if we believe we can't develop anymore, as if we know everything already.
We have a slowly diminishing water supply across the world, but it may because we are not utilizing each of our own ability to collect rain from our own roofs. We think we can rely on the companies that supply us the water. Think again. We must all start thinking of self reliance.
If people in the desert can do it, so can we.
Watch and learn!
