Water is life. Every drop is valuable and it’s easy to understand that scientists predicts that water is going to be one of the big questions to solve in the future. I just read that, by the end of this year, we’re going to be over seven billion people on this planet. That is scary to me but hopefully something will be done about the balance and distribution of those precious drops. We have freshwater in abundance over here but many countries have little or even less to its citizens. The biq question is if the developed countries are prepared to lower their standards in order to help the unfortunate countries.

A drop of water is life but running water is a powerful force to be reckoned with. Erosion constantly changes the country around us. The water and glaciers creates canyons on land while the oceans eats up the beaches on some places and makes new ones on others. The water can also be harnessed and every day power plants, driven by water, delivers power to our cities and factories. The water can also be used on a minor scale, as in the picture below. This small brook, for example, used to run a small saw mill in Ystad.

Water truly is life.
