As we all know, water is a transparent and nearly colourless liquid we all rely on even though it provides no calories or organic nutrients for us.
So, I was going through the internet and I stumbled upon some thrilling facts about water even I never thought about, and I decided to share some of them here.
1. On Earth, the same amount of water available when the Earth was formed is still the same amount presently. Yes! It simply means even as the population of Earth still keeps increasing, the amount of water we have hasn’t dropped and is still balanced.
How’s that even possible?
Now, water on Earth moves continually through the water cycle of evaporation and transpiration (evapotranspiration), condensation, precipitation, and runoff, usually reaching the sea.
I think that’s why the amount of water has remained stable over the years.
2. Nearly 97% of the world’s water is salty or otherwise undrinkable. Another 2% is locked in ice caps and glaciers. That leaves jus 1% for all of humanity’s needs.
Lol, this simply means we’ve been using just 1% of the Earth’s water for years!
3. 75% of the human brain is water and 75% of a living tree is water. Does that mean the work the brain does is almost similar in magnitude to that which the tree does?
4. Water regulates the Earth’s temperature. It also regulates the temperature of the human body.
5. Water is part of a deeply interconnected system. What we pour on the ground ends up in our water, and what we spew into the sky ends up in our water.
Lol, well would you take a look at that… How interesting!
6. The water from your faucet could contain molecules that dinosaurs drank
7. Lastly, we each drink about 1 cubic metre (that’s equivalent to 1000 litres) of water a year. I’m pretty sure most people drink more than that… (Just saying😁)
Well, most of us never thought about some of these facts, but they’re actually true.
Above all, water is essentially esstential, no organism would probably survive without water.
