because of the heat wave
for temperatures reached over 50 degrees Celsius.
Even though some rains have come already,
the phenomenon called El Nino is still here
and no one's sure how long it's gonna stay
and it is still disrupting weather patterns around the world.
The hotter sunshine and the rain
come alternately in a single day
with the sun in the morning till the afternoon
and immediately followed by the rain before sunset
causing some fever and respiratory ailments for some people
with this kind of weather.
But the rains are still no match with the El Nino
that's why the problems lingers on:
The green grasses that used to be
have turned brown
making them uninviting to insects
and inedible to animals.
Livestock are suffering much
from hunger, thirst and extreme heat
and so many of those already died.
Farmers are groaning the whole time
for they can't grow crops and fruits abundantly
due to lack of water.
As a result,
farm products are significantly reduced
and affecting the lives of the whole population.
What inevitably follows after a water crisis
is the food shortage.
The water reserves in reservoirs and dams
no longer hold enough volume
for irrigation and household consumption,
and a lot of those supporting major cities
already reached the critical level.
The best and the most immediate remedy of the government
is to ration it out.
An ordinance that reduces water consumption
on every household and other establishments
should be enforced right away.
But exclusive communities,
expensive and luxurious villages
totally paint a different picture.
Lush gardens offer a feast for the senses,
and green lawns cover the expanse of the properties.
Resorts that include golf courses
are still covered with green and well-sprinkled grasses.
These places require huge amounts of water daily
and they offer no clue of a major water crisis.
That's why they are highly detestable
and very unsightly nowadays
when the rest of the population suffers for no rain
and rationed water consumption.
It's high time for these resorts and communities
to do something extraordinary by limiting their water use
and so conserving huge volumes in the end.
There's must be a national law (if there's none)
that's going to deal with a major crisis
to safeguard the interest of the masses
much more during water crisis.
Water is the number 1 essential element in this world
for the survival of every living thing.
All must conserve water in every way possible.
