Do you think if we could gather all the raindrops around the world, we could solve the water problems?

    Rain drops are not "new" water....there is a finite amount of water on earth. Rain is simple water that has vaporized after rising into the atmosphere and returning back to earth.

    Highly doubt it...... as far as I'm aware, in the some of the first-world locations suffering from water shortages (e.g. UK, California, etc) alot of that has credited to modern drainage systems designed to get the water from rain storms back out to sea from the Rivers + underground drainage pipes as quickly as possible to avoid built-up areas getting flooded.... instead of giving the rain chance to fill the rivers / lakes / reservoirs + the underground water table (or whatever it's called).

    No, we would make them worse. Check out the Colorado and Arkansas Rivers, and the Aral Sea.
