Every year thousands and thousands of people, especially children, fall prey to water-borne diseases, and nearly half of them die. Water pollution is a serious issue because water is a most precious source that supports the survival of planet. Water pollution destroys life and ecology and cause irreparable damages. Those who are still not serious about water pollution must remember that the pollutants present in water destroy the life in the rivers and oceans and also affect our food chain.People forget that 70% of the earth is covered by water, and any activity on the land can wash to the seas and
As shown, water is a necessary to maintain life on Earth, but climate change and population growth strain the Earth's supply of water. Immortality would only strain the water usage further since water is being used faster than it can be replenished in multiple areas around the world. An example being California, where, as said in the article, the longest drought in over 1000 years took place between 2011 and 2016. Given that water is a nonrenewable resource, increasing population would hasten the depletion of the planet's reservoirs and springs, directly causing the end to all life on Earth
The water-crisis claims more lives through disease than any war through guns. More than eight hundred million people lack access to safe drinking water. This is more than the combined populations of the United States, Brazil, Japan, Germany, France and Italy. Many organizations work to improve water conditions in developing countries. From 1990 to 2006 the
Despite being one of the top 10 most water-scarce countries in the world, it is astonishing how this country has efficiently managed to be sustainable. The secret lies also in the type of irrigation the country has adopted. Agricultural sector consumes two-thirds of all water available in the Emirates. If a dry country like UAE adopts sprinkler irrigation like the countries with abundant water resource, 60% of the water would evaporate before it is absorbed by the plants. As a result, only 40% of the water intended for irrigation would be used, which is not evenly distributed as well.
However there are lakes with water in several countries, but the water is not clean.. Most of the planet's fresh water in the north and south poles but many of the humans on the planet are located near the equator. With water, as so many things, it depends on where people live. It’s something people are condemned to think about all the time, in rich nations people have the luxury to ignore.That makes for a lower chance to access clean water, in the world and it is only going to get worse as the population around the world is about to increase 50% in the next 50 years ( UN News Center) Half of all houses in Africa are not lucky to have clean water to drink. In rural areas the situation is better than in urban areas where 80% of homes have clean water.
Although, that one bottle is one of 5 million plastic particles that could end up in the ocean. Only 6.5% of plastic is recycled each year, so that one bottle is one of millions not being properly recycled. Water is one of the number one essentials to life, although it is used as if it were endless. Furthermore, water pollution affects the environment by disrupting food chains, killing aquatic sea life, and destructing ecosystems. In addition to affecting
Water supply which is easily available, potable and affordable is a prerequisite for good hygiene, sanitation and is central to the general welfare of all living things. The World Health Organisation (WHO) estimated 1.8 million deaths each year due to lack of access to safe water, sanitation and hygiene. However, about 784 million people worldwide still need to gain access to safe drinking water (UN, 2008). The United Nations Environmental Programme (UNEP) estimates show that 250 million people in Africa will be at risk of water stress, less than 1700 m3 of water available per person per year by 2020 and up to 500 million by 2050 (Falkenmark etal., 1989). Sub-Saharan Africa is making the slowest progress in meeting the MDGs target with one-third of the population still need safe drinking water (UN, 2008).
This will soon result in lack of fresh water and millions will suffer from it. Topsoil is being over used and it may result in lack of food production to feed people around the globe. Due to all these factors we have lost many species in the air land and water. We have to act fast to safe what we have now. For a start, control in birth rates around the world would be a great start for a better future.
It must be clean water, otherwise we become ill from the bacteria that is hiding in the water. Can you get sick from water? If the water is not clean or cleaner, can you get sick from the bacteria and parasites that live in the water, and which we cannot see. Many diseases transmitted through water, for example: Diarrhea: If there are many bacteria in the water can cause diarrhea to drink it. Over 1 million children under the age of five die of diarrhea each
Even with a large amount of desalination plants to reduce water deficiency, the UAE needs to adjust its water use habits before its energy consumption doubles in 2020. Governmental procedure to solve water scarcity in UAE Environment Agency Abu Dhabi said that, 72 per cent of water used in the UAE comes from groundwater, 21 per cent comes from desalination and only 7 per cent is treated water. The UAE is listed by the United Nations as a high-rank country when it comes to water problem, with the demand of water, it occurrence is not in same or not in
