Fresh water is the most precious resource on Earth. It is the essential ingredient for

Although water covers three-quarters of our Earth’s surface, the freshwater that so much of life depends upon only makes up 1% of this water – just a tiny sliver scattered on this earth to support us all. You’d think we’d be pretty careful with something so precious yet so scarce. So are we?
