Water, one of the most important things on earth
Even if our
planet is covered with two thirds of water, the simple fact is , that two thirds
is sea water, which cannot be used for our daily use. Although there is a
process called desalination which removes salt and other chemicals that are
present in seawater to make it fit for human consumption, this is a very
expensive process and is not enough to cope with the increasing demand for water
The other type is
fresh water which comes from rain. As we all know, rain simply put, is a
byproduct of a number of environmental and biological reactions. When rain
falls, we have several catchment areas in different places that runs off water
dams where it is treated before it eventually goes into our homes water supply
for our consumption.
Our problem is
that the environment has changed rapidly in the past thirty years or so that
industrialization has affected the earths natural environmental and biological
cycle thus experts have seen increasing scarcity of rain due to these changes.
At the moment, we have experienced droughts in many places and many are
predicting that things will only get worse, unless we act now.
We all have shared responsibility in conserving one
of the most precious things in Earth. If we do our own little share of saving
our resources, together we can make a big difference, after all , we only have
one planet to live in.
