Water is arguably the most important substance on earth – without water, life on earth would not have evolved as we know it. Yet despite the importance of water for life, you may be surprised about the data behind Earth’s water supply.
During this portion of the class, we will explore our understanding of where our water comes from and how much of it we use for different purposes. In considering water usage, we will collect and analyze data about our own water usage and compare our water consumption with those from other countries. We will then consider the different ways in which states and countries promote water conservation.
