Did you know that a human can live for a month without food, but less than one week without water?😱 Every living thing on Earth depends on water for survival. This is the reason why astrobiologists (scientists who search for life on other planets) think our best bet for finding life is to search for water.
Water basically decides where people live, where cities develop. Since ancient times, explorers have “followed the water.”🌊
If you live in a city or neighbourhood, your water🚰 probably comes from a nearby river or lake. If you live on a farm or out in the country, you might get your water from a well.
Groundwater is pumped through the well. Before reaching your house, water is sent to treatment plants where chemicals are put into it to kill the bacteria🦠 and viruses to make it drinkable.
👉 A whopping 96.5% of water on Earth is in our oceans, covering 71% of the surface of our planet. Out of that, 0.001% is floating above us in the atmosphere.
👉 An adult human should drink at least 2 litres of water per day. And it takes 2500 litres of water to produce 1 Kg of rice. So, who is the real culprit behind water scarcity!!!
👉 Over ninety percent of the world’s supply of fresh water is located in Antarctica.
👉 Only one percent of the World’s Water Is Drinkable.
