 DESCRIPTION
spacer
The water Planet is in Crises. The hydrosphere the largest body of the biosphere is in perilous state. Indiscriminate use of water in agriculture, industries, households, etc. has resulted in water scarcity. Water scarcity has coupled with water pollution. Whatever little water is left for drinking is infested with deadly pollutants, both chemicals and biological. Most of the ills humanity suffers from are owing to water pollution. Climate change has further intensified water crises in the form of accelerated glacier melt, fury of floods and impairment of overall water cycle of the biosphere. Yet people and their organizations have been  attempting to respond to water crises the globe is in the grips of. Some of the responses are exemplary and could help us avert water crises but in order to put the hydrological cycle back into order we need to get rid of the vicious cycle of climate change and global warming. Efficient resource management significant curtailment in carbon emissions and enhanced carbon sequestration could be instrumental in controlling the negative factors responsible for climate change and global warming and help restore climate order of the earth in which the hydrosphere would resume its life enhancing and life sustaining role on earth and would turn to be the most important resource as usual of human progress and happiness.
