Crown Prince: Civilization a Thin Layer

Crown Prince Wilhelm Alexander has said that if there should be a major shortage of water, Dutch society may collapse before one’s eyes. He noted that last March 200,000 families in the area of Groningen were without water for a relatively short time, and that incident showed that civilization is a very thin layer. People who had 30 bottles of water were not willing to give up even one to others who were late in coming to supply centers. www.elsevier.nl/nieuws/society/artikel/asp/artnr/204531/index.html
