    Water: The Source of Life

    Everything that you can define as life happens because of the actions of protein in water. Because without any water; plants, animals and humans will die. Water supports the plants grow so that we could breathe in oxygen and eat food. Water supports animals to survive. Without water, there will be no life on earth.

    The planet’s oceans, rivers, lakes and other bodies of water provide homes to countless species of plants and animals. Water supports life in many other ways as well. We use water every day in farming and agriculture, manufacturing, transportation and also power generation. In addition, water plays an important role in regulating the earth’s temperature for human survival.

    Water is the source of all life on earth. We all share the responsibility to ensure a healthy, secure and sustainable water supply for our communities, environment, and economy – our quality of life depends on it.

    Despite the fact that water covers 71% of earth surface, very little of it is used by human beings. Water pollution affects drinking water, rivers, lakes and oceans all over the world. This consequently harms human and all other living things on earth
