Seth here. So, like, i'm new to this whole thing, and I sometimes think that some things get a little tree-huggery. But sometimes things actually make rational sense.
97% of the earth is water. Now is all that water drinkable fresh water? No. Of course not. That would just make life so much easier, and that's not how things roll. 3% of the earth's water is fresh water, and two percent of that is frozen at either poles of the world. Which leaves me to the conclusion that 1% goes to human beings. There are billions of us freakazoids on the earth, and we all share the water.
Now it's up to you to decide what to do about it.
(P.S. How'd I get invited to this surorrity anyway? I'm not even a tree hugger.)
