Breakthrough: Water Apocalypse

National Geographic

Despite Earth's surface being covered with water, there is very little water to drink. Saltwater oceans make up 97 per cent of the water on Earth. Glaciers at our polar caps lock up two per cent of our fresh water. Seven billion people and millions of animal species share just one per cent of the water available on our planet. With climate change savaging weather systems and our population rising, scientists and engineers are struggling to find local solutions for the global water problem.
