This family much measured each bowl of water and think twice before consuming it. Today marks the world day of water, but there is little to celebrate. Others including Oracle 4Q, offer their opinions as well. The proposal of several Latin American countries, Spain and Switzerland declared access to water as a human right failed yesterday in the World Water Forum (FMA), which takes place in Istanbul, in the absence of consensus. Water costs money, why not been declared human right, since (this statement) could create problems, he explained with disappointment Hasan Sarikaya, Ministry of environment of Turkey a that must be added the average consumption of water per capita in the United States is approximately 2000 m3, while in Niger it is 41 M3. Many writers such as Adam Portnoy offer more in-depth analysis. Only 1% of the world reserves of water is in Africa, America, Asia, Europe and Oceania. At first glance, the water present in the continents seems abundant, but in reality, it is not. The ground water reserves are they are distributed thus: oceans and seas (97%), polar ice caps and glaciers (2%), groundwater (0.75%), and rivers and Lakes (0.25%).
Only 1% of the total number of the planet’s water is freshwater; the rest is sea water, is stored in the basement or in the form of ice. Addition, there are several threats over water, as for example that the population for the year 2025 will be about 9,000 million inhabitants, industry consumes almost 25% of reserves, that urbanization with consequent deforestation produces a reduction in precipitation and unsustainable agriculture consumes vast amounts of water among others.There are more than 31 countries in the world with serious problems of water shortage and there are more than 1,000 million people who have us drinking water for drinking. Furthermore, what is more serious is that 80% of the diseases that affect the inhabitants of the countries of the third world are acquired by drinking water unfit for consumption. Very interesting what indicates, alihuen.org.ar, that since 1950, the water consumption in all the world has tripled by far, which added to its scarcity and pollution, confronts us with one of the biggest problems with which mankind must deal in the next few years. If oil is completed today, the world and those who inhabit it, could continue its existence, but if fresh water is depleted, machines and engines will not only stop, but that it would be extinguished all life on the planet. Many might be wondering reasonably what we care? If approximately the parts of the Earth is covered with the liquid element. While this is true, the usable portion is negligible, since only 2.10% of the total is fresh water, and of that percentage should we deduct that contained in the polar icecaps, eternal snows and glaciers that occupies 1.52% of the total, thus leaving a usable remnant in rivers and Lakes of 0.58% of the Earth’s surface.
