I don't understand something

Recommended Posts

According to UN the current world population is 7.7 billion. (It's the UN, so take it with a grain of salt)

According to National Geographic, 2.5% of all water on earth is fresh, and only 1% is accessible.

 

How could a population of over 7 billion consistently live on only 1% of fresh water ?

 

Some serious discrepancies here...

No discrepancies Quod, simple geographics as to where the fresh water is and the people dwell, take the largest fresh water lakes on the globe, and look at where it is situated.

 

Lake Baikal, Russian Ozero Baykal, also spelled Ozero Bajkal, lake located in the southern part of eastern Siberia within the republic of Buryatia and Irkutsk oblast (province) of Russia. It is the oldest existing freshwater lake on Earth (20 million–25 million years old), as well as the deepest continental body of water, having a maximum depth of 5,315 feet (1,620 metres). Its area is some 12,200 square miles (31,500 square km), with a length of 395 miles (636 km) and an average width of 30 miles (48 km).

 

It is also the world’s largest freshwater lake by volume, containing about one-fifth of the fresh water on Earth’s surface, some 5,500 cubic miles (23,000 cubic km). Into Lake Baikal flow more than 330 rivers and streams, the largest of which include the Selenga, Barguzin, Upper (Verkhnyaya) Angara, Chikoy, and Uda.

 

Then we have rainfall, lots of it recently, this supplies us with most of what we need as long as it keeps raining that is.

 

Same goes for land worth its salt to grow food, again this is down to demographics, where the food is grown and where the people dwell, we are doing it all wrong.

 

Over time and history, Cities are bad places where the majority of people are gathered like sheep in a pen, smaller highly skills and widespread communities is the way forward, not compartmentalization, but decentralization, to where the resorces are, this would remove 90 percent of our governance and thier ability to govern us.
