Everyone knows there's a water crisis...
On Day Zero (Aug. 27), residential water taps will be turned off in Cape Town, South Africa.
London, England, will have supply problems by 2025 and "serious shortages" by 2040, according to the Greater London authority.
Water will be scarce in Istanbul, Turkey, by 2030, according to BBC.
None of this information is new or surprising.
