Water For Life
How Oil Ruins the Environment?
Water For Life
Water is an abundant resource on Earth and all living creatures, including humans depend on it for survival. A large percent of Earth is made up of water. Saltwater has too much salt in it for people to drink. Drinking too much of it can be harmful or even deadly. Most of Earth is saltwater. Freshwater makes up a near two percent of of water on Earth. Of that two percent most of the water is frozen in remote locations. Freshwater is mostly used to grow food to feed the world’s population. Smaller amounts are used for household and industrial purposes. As Earth population rises the demand for freshwater also rises. A higher population means more food, water, and basic necessities are needed for survival. Earth does not have an unlimited supply of freshwater. Many of our water sources are drying up for overuse. Also, people are wasting water do to leaky faucets, etc. Our water sources are being polluted by human waste and harmful chemicals. In some places around the world especially third-world countries, this pollution is so severe that it can cause death. By burning fossil fuels it has a major affect on the environment. The chemicals that are released into the atmosphere can lead to global warming. This can cause severe weather events such as flooding, drought, and large storms. In certain places global warming is causing drought which is resulting in large loss of animal and human life. Countries are beginning to fight over water rights. Water is the driving force behind all modes of life. Without it, life would cease to exist.
And the oil spill turns the water colors and then the oil gets up on land and stays on the sand and land plus nests with eggs.
Animals can’t keep their normal body temperature when covered with oil so then a lot animals end up dying.
