1Water is everywhere, all around us and even inside us. It runs underground. It falls as
rain, or forms as dew. And the vast oceans cover about three quaters of the world. There
has been the same amount of water on this planet for billions of years. So how can we
be running out of it?
5"We are not running out of water," says 21-year-old Annalee Sanborn, from the town
of Pleasonton in California. "We´re running out of safe, clean drinking water." Almost
100 million people have no access to clean water right now. And the World Health
Organization says more than 4,000 children die every year from diarrhoeal disease -
caused mainly by drinking polluted water.
10"In developed countries, you turn on the tap and water comes out," says Annalee. "In
developing countries, many people walk several miles every day to a well and carry home
heavy buckets of water. The organization "There´s No New Water" teaches teens that our
water supply is limited too. They learn how to conserve water and keep it clean."

About 97 per cent of the water on Earth is seawater. Another two per cent is frozen. That
leaves just one per cent for us to use. As the world´s population increases, water shortages
get worse - even in developed countries. It is possible to desalinate seawater to make it
drinkable, but the process is still difficult and very expensive.
