City of 21 Million People Is Sinking Three Feet Each Year And Here's Why

Mexico City is sinking. Home to 21 million people, a place that consumes approximately 287 billion gallons of water every year. The city has sunk over 32 feet in the last 60 years because 70% of the water on which people rely is extracted from the aquifer below the city.


"There's no fixing it. Once land is subsided, it's subsided," journalist Andrea Noel told producer Alan Sanchez in the video below from Fusion.


The water table is going down at a rate of one meter (3.2 feet) each year. As the number of people living in the city grows and water demand continues to increases, the problem will only be exacerbated.


"It needs to be stopped because it's too late to be remedied," Noel said. "The city needs to find a way to figure out their water problem. They really need to look into alternatives like collecting rainwater, which makes so much sense in a city like this, which gets so much rainfall every year."

It isn't only Mexico City either. A recent NASA analysis found that four billion people—approximately two-thirds of the world population—are at risk as water tables drop worldwide.

  1. This is my testimony about the good work of a man who helped me..I base in US .My life is back!!! After 8 years of marriage, my husband left me and left me with our three kids. I felt like my life was about to end, and was falling apart. Thanks to a spell caster called Dr gbojie who i met online. On one faithful day, as I was browsing through the internet, I was searching for a good spell caster that can solve my problems. I came across series of testimonies about this particular spell caster. Some people testified that he brought their Ex lover back, some testified that he restores womb, some testified that he can cast a spell to stop divorce and so on. There was one particular testimony I saw, it was about a woman called grace,she testified about how Dr gbojie brought back her Ex lover in less than 48 hours and at the end of her testimony she drop his email. After reading all these,I decided to give Dr gbojie a try. I contacted him on [email protected] , [email protected] or call his mobile number on +2349066410185 or contact him on his website : http://gbojiespiritualtemple.website2.me and indeed he restored my marriage and am so grateful.
