    How often do we think about what lies below the surface of the land, below the sea floor? This week on World Ocean Radio we're thinking about water and our reckless consumption of it for agriculture, industry, and what we consume for both our basic needs and for our survival. How long before we exhaust the supply? In this episode we discuss the value of water underland, the water melting from warming glaciers, from the ice cap, the surface water and the water from the aquifers, and we call for a response to a rapidly changing environment that will soon demand one.
