Global temperatures increased by about 1 degree Fahrenheit over the course of the last century, and is predicted to rise even more rapidly in coming decades. This is leading to temperature increase and droughts, which in turn makes water of utmost importance. Growing demand from agriculture, industry and a growing population, have increased the problem. According to international reports, industry and householders are using increasing amounts of water.
