The Water Tax

It’s ironic that our most priceless commodity costs us the least and is taken for granted and given so little thought when wasted. Yes, we pay our basic water bill to the utilities every month, but that’s a ridiculously paltry sum and doesn’t take into account your misuse or wastage of water.

Since we now live in a world that appreciates nothing without a price-tag, the best way would be to ensure you have to pay for water taking into account how much of it you use.100% of this tax could go towards funding R&D in the areas of water management and innovative methods to desalinize salt water, making it drinkable.

We pay taxes for oil and electricity, so why not for ensuring the continued availability of our far more precious water?
