world water resources
At today,water has becomed a topic among the masses.And it is one of the resources which is shortage is protected by our.70% of the earth's surface covered by water,but fresh water resources occupy only 2.5 percent.Nearly 70% of the freshwater doesn't be used by people which is fixed in the Antarctic and Greenland ice, and the rest for the soil moisture or deep groundwater, Less than 1% of fresh water or about 0.007 percent of water is directly used by human,but chinese per capita fresh water resources occupy a quarter of the world's total freshwater resources per capita.
On the earth reservoir of water is very rich which is as many as 1.45 billion cubic meters.But less can be used.Firstly,because water is bitter and salty,it is not suitable for drinking, pouring and being difficult for industrial.87% of fresh water resources is difficult to use.Not only the world's fresh water resources is shortage but also it's distribution is unbalanced.Many countries including Brazil, Russia, Canada, China, the United States, Indonesia, India, Colombia and the Congo and other nine countries account for 60 percent of freshwater resources.
