5/30 (Tue.) Taiwan's Water Crisis? (Host: Miller)

文章 miller »

This is Miller, the host of the coming meeting on 5/30.
The drought crisis has emerged recently due to the scarcity of rainfall in Taiwan.
The climate of Taiwan has been changing gradually in this nearly century, but most people get aware of it until recently.
We suffered from the water rationing policy. And it brought a lot of cost to the industries.
Scientists have said that the frequency of typhoons in Taiwan is decreasing as global temperatures rise and by the end of the century the number of typhoons that reach Taiwan could be reduced to half.
If you have any ideas to solve this problem, please come to join our meeting.

Session 1:
Q1. Taiwan faced more serious drought in the past several years, especially in 2021 and this year. What did you suffer from this crisis?
Q2. Taiwan is supposed to be one of the rainiest places in the world. Why it usually encounters serious drought. Is it just because of decreasing rainfall?
Q3. Besides our life being affected, as your opinions, what will be changed if this crisis happens constantly? Why?

Session 2:
Q4. Do you agree that we should raise the price of water in Taiwan? Why and why not?
Q5. Do you support creating more reservoirs or ponds near your place?
Q6. Suppose we are the policymakers. What else would you do to avoid a water crisis?
Q7. For a wonderful future, all of us need to make some changes. What would you like to do personally for the water crisis?
