Heat pollution eutrophication air pollution global warming contamination of saltwater and freshwater caused by human activities Over the years, water pollution has become a bigger issue
This is partly due to the increase in population
Also partly due to increased industrialization
If we don't put a stop to water pollution, humankind will eventually kill itself off 70% of the Earth's surface is covered by water. Is there really a crisis? Of that 70%, only 3% is fresh water. Of that 3%, two thirds are frozen away in icebergs and glaciers. Which leaves only 0.7% of the world's water available for drinking... ...and 7 billion people. Life on Earth depends on water. Conservationists have come to the conclusion that we are now experiencing a water crisis What is the root of all these causes? The root of the problem is us. Kills marine life
Contaminates animals through the food chain
Causes disease in humans, such as hepatitis and cholera
Causes long term liver & kidney damage
Can cause acid rain
Destroys ecosystems
Erosion can cause flooding
Causes economic downfall erosion More children are currently dying from drinking contaminated water than from war. Health Economy Climate Water pollution and the ensuing water crisis has a growing impact on every country
Though it is especially bad in dry countries near the equator
As well as poor countries Areas of Impact -Desalination plants
-Changes in legislation
-New technologies for water purification
-Public campaigns
-Charities provide communities with tools to get clean water
-Water-efficient appliances being produced
-People are spreading knowledge Politics REDUCE REUSE PROPERLY
