3. Reading comprehension(articles)

Materials you will need to review:

1. Water:

Notes and opinions on water situation in developing nations and bottled water throughout the world.
1.There is the same amount of water on Earth as there was when the Earth was formed. The water from your faucet could contain molecules that dinosaurs drank. That total amount is 366 quintillion gallons.
2.Water is composed of two elements, Hydrogen and Oxygen. 2 Hydrogen + 1 Oxygen = H2O.
3.Nearly 97% of the world’s water is salty or otherwise undrinkable.
Another 2% is locked in ice caps and glaciers. That leaves just of readily usable fresh water 0.007% for all of life needing fresh water.
4.Water regulates the Earth’s temperature. It also regulates the temperature of the human body, carries nutrients and oxygen to cells, cushions joints, protects organs and tissues, and removes wastes.
5.75% of the human brain is water and 75% of a living tree is water.
6.A person can live about a month without food, but only about a week without water.
7. Earth's oceans cover 71% of the Earth's surface.
8. 97% of the living space on Earth is in the oceans.
9.The water pressure is higher at the bottom of the ocean than the top.
Bottled water negatives
- Never test bottled water for safety, Monroe County Water Authority tests hundreds of times per month.
-Plastic waste in landfills and creating garbage patches in every ocean, beaches made out of plastic instead of sand.
-Outrageous cost for bottled, 10,000 or more times higher cost for bottled tap water.
-Bottled water industry taking water from cities and towns to the point of drought and continuing to pump water heavily during droughts.
