There is so much water here in Lake Michigan!!
Did you know that humans withdraw about 4,000 cubic kilometers of water per year, which is actually the size of this lake.
Yes, that amount of water that we withdraw now is actually triple what we withdrew 50 years ago!
That isn't good.
Water is the most vital natural resource on this planet, necessary for human survival and in growing our food.
And also in manufacturing systems and in sustaining our ecosystems and climates, right?
Yep! Too bad we only have access to 1% of the fresh water on earth because 97% is salt water and of the 3% that's fresh, 2% of it is frozen.
Wow, that isn't a lot.
Additionally, over 80% of the world's wastewater is put back into oceans and streams without any treatment.
That's not good. We have a lot of uses for our water including generating electricity from the movement of water, which I forgot to mention earlier.
Yea, it really isn't, which is why we have to do our best to conserve it.
