Glad time has not come that people have to pay for getting air

@SP, but we are not getting fresh air. The air we breath is heavily polluted. If you want to get gresh air I think you need to pay for that.

We as community buy huge amounts of water on daily basis.

@SP, sadly this is the harsh reality. Water has become expensive commodity these days. Scaricity of water is on the rise because of irregular rain patterns and overusage of water.  We need to limit our water consumption so that we can replenshi ground water levels.

@SP I'm sure someone will think of a way to tax it if not to charge for usage. Numerous taxes of various sorts are tagged onto utility charges, including phones. So perhaps a clean air tax will also be added on down the road. I really can see it happening.

@SP Even in my part of Long Island, where water is abundant, we get charged for water usage. It's not as expensive as electricity or gas, but it's not free.

Yes water scarcity is a real problem these days. We are buying all the water that is used domestically there is absolutely no groundwater and no municipal water. We as community buy huge amounts of water on daily basis. There are many people who like to waste water thinking they are cleaning the homes well, now we have installed water meter in all the appartments to check who is using how much.

Israel has very advance technology for water irrigation and recycling of water. It should be made easily accessible to common person in all countries. Also, people need to be educated for value of water and various ways to conserve it. It should be inculcated in early years of elementry school and at home.
