Comments Off on Water Rush: Businesses Scramble to Make a Buck from Melting Icebergs

  Photo © Shutterstock As climate change causes the polar ice caps to melt, a few entrepreneurs are trying to sell off the ocean’s icebergs as drinking water. Instead of allowing valuable freshwater from melting icebergs to simply disappear into the ocean, these companies are attempting to harvest the water — which often sells at a premium due to its unique origins and supposedly exceptional purity. One Dutch businessman, Guus Backelandt, sells his iceberg water for up to $21 a bottle. He even sells the water to a Canadian company that uses it to distill vodka .

Hold on to your office chairs, research-loving infographic fans – we’ve got a doozy for you here. Researchers at the University of Twente in the Netherlands have compiled a report on the “water footprint of humanity” (from 1996 to 2005) that comes complete with comprehensive water consumption statistics for every country on Earth – including water consumed by industry. The researchers found that 92% of freshwater use is in the agricultural industry, that the United States (with 3% of the world’s population) is the third-largest water consumer, and that 1/5 of water used on Earth is for products exported out of the country where they are made or grown. The report also comes complete with water pollution data, some interesting infographics , and it’s accompanied by a “product gallery” where you can see how much water goes into the production of say, a a cup of tea . When you add up all the water needed to make food, energy and other products, the average person on the planet Earth uses an incredible 1,056 gallons of water per day — that’s enough to fill up 21 standard bath tubs.
