Did you know that the water on Earth is 97% salted and 3% fresh ?
Yes. Just pick up any geology book and that information is usually in the first chapter. Or if you take geological hazards and resources, it's in the lab book at chapter 14.
Yes, I did, but I haven't thought about it for a long time. No reason to I guess.
Equally interesting is the percentage of water that is contained in fresh water rivers and lakes. It's only 0.0075% of the total water on the Earth. Or 1 unit for every 13,333 units of water. Most of the freshwater is ice or snow or groundwater.
That's why I love having five fresh water Great Lakes surrounding my state. Michigan rules!!!
Yes and all the more reason to convert salt water to fresh by desalination processes using many more areas for conversion. Our water is in grave danger due to pollution and waste disposal procedures by big companies that put everyone at risk. There are better resources for power in natural gas and cold fusion processing. Although a few such plants exist, there are not nearly enough and this needs to be a top priority. Thanks for this motivating question. whonu
