Brazil Water Crisis Wreaks Havoc. ... Feb 18, 2015.
The residents of Sao Paulo, Brazil, are facing severe water restrictions and power interruptions.
As Brazil experiences the worst drought on record environmentalists blame massive deforestation in the Amazon. It is estimated an area the size of 2 Germany's has been cleared. It is suggested this has permanently interrupted the usual currents from the Atlantic that funnelled moisture through the rain forest.
As the 22 million residents of Sao Paulo city face only having water 2 days a week and rolling blackouts, Brazil's fertile southeast coffee-growing region is also hard hit. It is estimated it will take 4 years for water storage areas to fill up again (from their current 4% full) if normal rains return.
However, the World Wildlife Fund warns that halting deforestation now is no longer enough. The damage can only be repaired by replanting and will take decades to reverse.Uploaded Oct 17, 2014 by Al Jazeera English:
