    Development happens and it happens fast; without a care of natural resources which usually cause environmental destruction. Therefore building and operating of infrastructures in ways that do not not disturb the ecological processes are required to maintain the functionality of natural systems.

    I think I audibly gasped when I read the CNN update a week or so ago that discussed the severity of Cape Town's water drought and needing to close all taps in the city eventually in what would be known as 'Day Zero.' This personally sounds terrifying, and I cannot even begin to imagine what that would be like. However, I read another CNN update today (which gave me the idea for this post) that stated that Day Zero was just pushed to July due to major water conservation efforts by the people in Cape Town and surrounding areas. That's great news! It's reassuring to see that taking unified action, especially for such a sustainable goal, can have such important impacts (not that they normally don't equal something important, but this is a really great example and it happened pretty quickly). However, it makes me think-- does it have to take something as drastic as facing a day zero in order to make changes in how we interact with the environment and our daily routines?
