Why a Site About H20

Remember those adverts for milk where the guy from the Harry Enfield show used to say "int Milk Brilliant?"

Well, if milk is brilliant water, good old H20 is magnificent!!! Did you know that water covers 70.9% of the earth's surface, and is constantly moving as a cycle of evaporation or transpiration, precipitation, and runoff, usually reaching the sea. Over land, evaporation and transpiration contribute to the precipitation over land.

All that aside, the most important thing about H20 is that every known life-form relies upon it for it very existence, and that some experts believe half of us (the world's population) could be struggling to find enough of it (suffering from water-based vulnerability).

While, access to safe drinking water has improved steadily and substantially over the last decades in almost every part of the world, a recent report (November 2009) suggests that by 2030, in some developing regions of the world, water demand will exceed supply by 50%.

On top of the obvious damage to life this could do, water also plays an important role in the world economy; as a solvent for a wide variety of chemical substances and for industrial cooling and transportation. Approximately 70% of freshwater is consumed by agriculture.

For this reason we have set up this site dedicated purely to H20, we will share suggestions on how to increase the flow of fresh water around the world as they come along. Of course the main problem is global warming, so we will also be sharing ideas to slow that as well.
