with water is simple. There’s not enough of it. Sure, in many places, the grass is lush, and water seems to flow, or even overflow. But it may not always be that way. Because as weather patterns change, droughts will happen more
often, and in more places. And at the rate Americans use water, we won’t have the water we
need when these droughts hit. There are obvious answers
to the water crisis. Stop watering the lawn, stop
taking such long showers. There are other places to sing, you know. And one of the answers is cooking. Fact: a family of four uses 100 gallons of water every year just to boil pasta. Cut that water in half, in thirds even, and the pasta cooks just as well. And you can go one step further by simply boiling the pasta
right in your tomato sauce. Just add enough water to get the sauce to cover the noodles. It works. And if everybody in America cooked their pasta this way,
we’d save billions of gallons of water every year. Plenty of water to clean the pot with.
