Without water nothing would flourish on our planet, especially us humans. The planet has water in abundance but most of it is saline which is useless for drinking & for the irrigation of crops. Animals too are dependent on freshwater as are most plants & trees. We are all aware of this fact but nonetheless we waste & pollute our water resources relentlessly.

Water, the most important resource that we humans need to exist. This is fact but unfortunately water is probably the most abused resource on this planet through pollution and wastage. The rich, industrial countries of the world take little responsibility for the environment and discharge waste products every day into rivers and lakes worldwide poisoning fish, wildlife and plant life. In the third world there are millions of starving people because water shortage doesn’t allow crops to grow adequately.

Water covers approximately 71% of the Earth’s surface, and is vital for all known forms of life. 96.5% of the planet’s water is found in seas and oceans, 1.7% in groundwater, 1.7% in glaciers and the ice caps of Antarctica and Greenland, a small fraction in other large water bodies, and 0.001% in the air as vapor, clouds (formed of solid and liquid water particles suspended in air), and precipitation. Only 2.5% of the Earth’s water is freshwater, and 98.8% of that water is in ice and groundwater. Less than 0.3% of all freshwater is in rivers, lakes, and the atmosphere, and an even smaller amount of the Earth’s freshwater (0.003%) is contained within biological bodies and manufactured products.

“The more often we see the things around us – even the beautiful and wonderful things – the more they become invisible to us. That is why we often take for granted the beauty of this world: the flowers, the trees, the birds, the clouds – even those we love. Because we see things so often, we see them less and less.”

Joseph B. Wirthlin

Did You Know?

The earth is a closed system, similar to a terrarium, meaning that it rarely loses or gains extra matter. The same water that existed on the earth millions of years ago is still present today.
