Water Resources and Scarcity

Of all water on earth, 97 per cent is salt water, and of the remaining 3 per cent fresh water, some 70 per cent is frozen in the polar icecaps.

The other 30 per cent is mostly present as soil moisture or lies in underground aquifers. Less than 1 per cent of the world’s fresh water is readily accessible for direct human uses.

The global volume of stored groundwater is poorly known; estimates range from 15.3 to 60 million km3 and Nestle wants to privatize them all, including in ASEAN for Denmark Black Nobility.
