Tell me what you think.

Earlier in the week a follower commented that he who controls water controls us also. I gave the subject some, thought did some research and came to the following conclusion. True we can die of thirst long before expiring from hunger. But....., No matter what the powers at be say, there is no shortage of water on earth. Water is easy to acquire. As long as there is a vessel to contain it, and there is a river, lake, pond, ditch puddle, rain or an ocean we can have water. We may have to boil, filter, treat, purify, or desalinate it. We can always access water and with a little effort we can store and control our supply. Food takes more time, knowledge and effort to produce, whether it's you or someone who produces it.

The following information was taken from an article from the site "How Things Works."http://science.howstuffworks.com/environmental/earth/geophysics/question157.htm

There's a whole lot of water on Earth! Something like 326,000,000,000,000,000,000 gallons (326 million trillion gallons) of the stuff (roughly 1,260,000,000,000,000,000,000 liters) can be found on our planet. This water is in a constant cycle -- it evaporates from the ocean, travels through the air, rains down on the land and then flows back to the ocean.

­The oceans are huge. About 70 percent of the planet is covered in ocean, and the average depth of the ocean is several thousand feet (about 1,000 meters). Ninety-eight percent of the water on the planet is in the oceans, and therefore is unusable for drinking because of the salt. About 2 percent of the planet's water is fresh, but 1.6 percent of the planet's water is locked up in the polar ice caps and glaciers. Another 0.36 percent is found underground in aquifers and wells. Only about 0.036 percent of the planet's total water supply is found in lakes and rivers. That's still thousands of trillions of gallons, but it's a very small amount compared to all the water available.

The rest of the water on the planet is either floating in the air as clouds and water vapor, or is locked up in plants and animals (your body is 65 percent water, so if you weigh 100 pounds, 65 pounds of you is water!). There's also all the soda pop, milk and orange juice you see at the store

and in your refrigerator… There's probably several billion gallons of water sitting on a shelf at any one time!

Do you have a website where you could write an article similar to this?

I believe that, if you had the right keywords for it, this would be a great article! You would have to write it "differently" of course, now that you've used it here.

Thank you for the follow Daniel. I will look into a place to put the article when I rework it. I wish you all the success possible from this site.
