Water, water everywhere...what? It's not?
It's not like water is coming down to earth from other planets. What we have is it.
A website called Able Skills -- http://ableskills.co.uk/water-facts/ -- has some other facts about water, which by the way, may become the most disputed commodity on earth, surpassing even oil.
-- We need 200 million liters of water a second to grow food.
--One cotton t-shirt took 25 baths of water to produce.
--A mug ig beer takes 91 liters of water to produce (but it's worth it!--aw kidding)
--Say all the water in the world was in a 4-liter jug--freshwater would be one tablespoon of it.
--One person in nine has no access to water.
--Half of the world's hospital beds are filled with people with water-borne illnesses.
--Every 20 seconds, a child dies of a water-borne illness.
The Elixir or Life! But more precious than gold.
