Water covers 71% of the earth's surface.
97% of the water on earth is in the oceans, and of the remaining 3%, half is frozen in the polar ice caps. The remaining 1.5% is Earth's supply of fresh water, and we are consuming it faster than ever. Rainfall and river water can not sustain humanity's growing water needs in many parts of the world. There is more fresh water in the atmosphere than in all of the rivers of the planet combined. This is a tremendous opportunity, and this is where Skysource can help you becoming water self reliant.
At any moment, the atmosphere contains about 37.5 million billion gallons of water. If all of the water in the atmosphere rained down at once, it would cover the globe to a depth of an inch.
Earth's Water Supply
A majority of the world’s population lives within a 30-mile radius of water sources that are badly stressed or running out. Water is being removed from ground sources 15 times faster than it is being replenished. Worldwide we are losing approximately 75 Billion cubic meters of fresh water annually, and according to the G7 Summit, it is estimated that in less than 50 years there could be a collapse of our planet's water sources.
"Look again at that dot. That's here. That's home. That's us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every "superstar," every "supreme leader," every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there-on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam."
