Ways that energy use consumes water.
Hydraulic Mining, Fracturing, (Fracking) and thermoelectric cooling towers for fossil and nuclear fules depend on substantial water inputs. Waste water evaporation pits associated with Mining and Fraking pose a significant risk to migratory birds and other wildlife ufws.
