Amazing!

Did you know...

~ 70% of the earth's surface is water.
~ But, only 3% of that water is drinkable!
~ Of the above 3%, 80% is contained in glaciers and therefore unavailable for drinking!
~Of the remaining 20%, 15 % is contained in underground aquifiers.
~ Which leaves only 5% of drinking water on the surface!

  2. So, with 'global warming' we'll have more drinking water, right? So, maybe 'global warming' isn't so bad, afterall.

  4. Yeah, that's what I said. Those enviromentalists just don't know what's good for them! All they worry about is the polar bears, which brings me to another point. IF there IS such a thing as EVOLUTION then, can't the polar bears just ADAPT to the warmer climate?????

    (I have just succesfully defeated all of the tree-huggers arguments! Ha ha! OK, I guess I didn't really. :(
