Let's face it: there can be no life without water. Life began in water billions of years ago. And, even today, it makes up 70% of our bodies.
Water is present everywhere on Earth, in one form or another: frozen stiff on top of lofty mountains; swirling and splashing in the water bodies on the Earth's surface; wafting about as vapour in the air around us; lying still and silent in the deep and mysterious oceans.
Sadly enough though, hardly any clean sources of water are left today. Human activities have been polluting water everywhere for years and years, but matters are serious now. Millions of people cannot take even clean drinking water for granted. Groundwater is no longer safe for drinking and our oceans have degenerated into giant dumping grounds for industrial waste, sewage, and oil.
As always, the solution to this problem lies largely in our own hands. This book will lead you through the issues of water pollution, give you some solutions, and tell you what the world community is doing to combat this challenge.
