Watery Planet : How a water crisis is impacting our world Hardback

Hardback

Description

Watery Planet offers young readers a clear, insightful look at Earth's ongoing water challenges. Water makes our life on Earth possible. We need water not just to drink and keep clean, but also for agriculture, industry, transport and much, much more.

But despite having an enormous amount of water on Earth, only 1 per cent of it is available for us to use and it's at increasing risk. Watery Planet looks at the reasons behind our looming water crisis - from uneven distribution to water wastage, pollution and climate change.

It explores how floods, droughts and rising sea levels are becoming a stark reality as the world warms and describes how we are adapting to these challenges.

It also looks at some positive, practical solutions to our water problems and explains how we can all do our part to help save Earth's most precious resource. Contents:A WHOLE WORLD OF WATER WE ALL NEED WATER!
