Infographic of the day – Dying for a Drink

  1. Sadly, these infographics missed the opportunity to make some much deeper connections.
    Yes, India, China, and the US use 1/3 of the water, but those three countries host over 45% of the world’s population. The raindrop graphic doesn’t consider population or land mass.
