PressTV Covers the World Water Crisis

“According to a United Nations World Water Report (2006), 70% of the earth’s surface is covered with water. However 97.5% of this is seawater which is not useful. Of the 2.5% fresh water, 68.7% is in the form of ice-caps and 30% is stored underground therefore making only 0.3% water available as surface water. Out of this surface water 87% is stored in lakes, 11% in swamp and 2% in rivers. As all of the sweet water is not ex-tractable, only 1% of the total water can be used by human beings.” Click here to learn more
