Water–Blue Gold

This post is for Blog Action Day–blogactionday.change.org.

Water is an incredibly precious resource.  98% of the Earth’s water supply is salt water.  Most of the 2% that is fresh is locked in ice.  Yet with these startling figures, Americans waste water every day!  We think water is an unlimited resource because it is so cheap.  If we step back and look at the state of water in the rest of the world, it might give us some perspective.  For example, millions of ppl do not have access to clean water.  So many children die from diarrhea due to dehydration.  This can be prevented through global consciousness and a realization of what water really is: Blue Gold.
