How much freshwater is available on our planet?
Today’s Video of the Day from the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center breaks down the amount and location of Earth’s accessible freshwater.
The oceans contain 97 percent of the water on our planet, which means the other three percent is freshwater.
However, once you eliminate the freshwater that is unavailable, such as the water locked up in glaciers, only one percent of all the Earth’s water is usable and accessible by humans.
