It is impossible to waste water. Any water used will eventually return to the water cycle. However, it is true that some areas lack water supplies for the population. The solution, move to areas with plentiful supplies of water or don't move to arid areas. It is completly insane to for huge populations to live in areas such as Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Phoenix, etc... The people who move to these areas create the water supply problems and I don't think we need to spend billions in infrastructure for a population that shouldn't be living in such an inhospitable area in the first place.
The amount of water I use or don't use has absolutely no effect on areas which lack water. I don't see massive water pipelines crossing the country from the Ohio River. What water I use or don't use will eventually evaporate and form clouds or flow out to the Gulf of Mexico. So it makes no difference if I conserve water or not, arid regions won't see one drop of the water I didn't use.
When it comes to energy conservation who cares how much power I'm using if I'm not connected to the coal burning power grid and generating my own from solar and wind.
In conclusion, If you really want to save the environment move to an area with plentiful water, generate your own power from renewable sources, grow some of your own food, learn how to can food, sew your own clothes, knit blankets, use worn out clothes as cleaning rags or as pieces for quilts, and stop driving or owning a car which uses gasoline. It isn't difficult to do.
