What's happening to water? By: Shayan K. and Akhilan G.
Water, the main source of every life on Earth, the mother for every life. It waters crops, soothies our thirst, and forms our land. It is found in many different laces in different forms, including seas, oceans, and icebergs. However, this precious resource is quickly escaping our world. For example, the average U.S citizen uses anywhere from 80-100 gallons of water a day. Say if every U.S citizen used 80 gallons of water today. After the 24 hours, the whole country would of used 25,512,000,000 gallons water. To put that in perspective, lake Tahoe holds 39 trillion gallons of water, which seems like a lot, right? The answer is no, not at all. If all people living in the U.S use 25,512,000,000 gallons of water a day, it would would only take 15.3 days to fully fill lake Tahoe. Pretty scary right, just one country uses that much water? Just imagine how much water the whole world takes daily. And yes, we do have tons of water in the ocean, but it doesn’t matter. Just look at California! We are right next to the pacific ocean, but scientists predict that in 3-5 years, California will run out of water. Think about that when you take a sip of water.
