Sabu l-ilma ………… fuq Mars!

L-aħbar li hemm possibilità tajba li fuq il-pjaneta Mars instab l-ilma nisslet ħafna interess fil-media. Anke f’Malta l-aħbar ingħata spazju għax bla dubju hi aħbar interessanti.

Dan l-interess huwa imnissel ukoll mill-fatt li f’ħafna pajjiżi madwar id-dinja hawn nuqqas ta’ ilma.

Min jaf, forsi, waqt li nieħdu pjaċir li fuq il-pjaneta Mars instab l-ilma nibdew nagħtu  ftit iktar każu napprezzaw l-ilma ftit iktar viċin tagħna.

Fil-passat riċenti f’Malta, bħala pajjiż,  ma tantx tajna każ tal-ilma. Il-kostruzzjoni tal-bjar fir-residenzi, biex fihom jinġabar l-ilma tax-xita, naqas sostanzjalment. F’ħafna każi, l-ilma tax-xita flok ma jinġabar fil-bjar intefa’ fit-toroq jew fid-drenaġġ.

L-għorrief fil-Parlament, flok ma insistew biex l-ilma tax-xita jibda jinġabar fil-bjar ħolqu proġett biex jiġbru dan l-ilma u jixħtuħ fil-baħar. Irmew l-ilma u miegħu irmew ukoll miljuni ta’ euros.

Aħjar nibdew nagħtu ftit każ tal-ilma ta’ madwarna flok l-ilma li x’aktarx hemm fuq Mars!

  1. The Mars water news carries much irony for the US as well as us. In the US the long-term California drought has now reached epic proportions, as has its most dramatic consequence huge forest fires. But there are other less visible but not less serious threats to water supply. In the heavily cultivated south-central areas of the US, the water supply system is now breaking down through old age. Maintenance programmes are becoming too costly for individual States. The other looming crisis lies in the increasing nitrate content of the water sources – rivers usually – coming from the intensive farming practiced in the corn-belt of the US. Existing treatment plants are now overwhelmed, with frequent breakdowns leading to interruptions of supply.

  2. There was an article in The Guardian yesterday by their resident environment writer George Monbiot. After the first couple of sentences praising the achievement of NASA scientists in finding salt water on Mars, he continues with a brilliant sally: Meanwhile Martian scientists continue with their search for intelligent life on Earth. The rest of the article is devoted to a description of what “intelligent life” is doing to fresh and salt water on Planet Earth!
