Environmental Equality: Water's Worth
Water is pure liquid hydrogen and oxygen and makes up more than half of the human body. In the article, “Six Natural Resources Most Drained by our 7 Billion People,” Camila Ruz argues, “Fresh water only makes up 2.5 percent of the total volume of the world’s water… 70 percent of that freshwater is in the form of ice… so by 2025, people could be living in countries with absolute water scarcity.” (Ruz) Since the Earth already has minimal freshwater resources and overpopulation, water will be considered endangered by 2025. Water is a necessity, and without it, it will be impossible for flora (plants) and fauna (animals) to survive. Here is more information on how our water is filtered, how the chemicals affect us, and how to preserve it.
The Golden Key
Once upon a time… Winter storms infected a land somewhere very, very far away. Snow flurries consumed the sky, and bunches of white frost multiplied on the ground. A poor orphan boy named Gavin Staniel left his makeshift home to gather wood for fire. The young boy was nearly an ice cube by the time his sled was full of materials for burning, so he sat for a minute to enjoy the warmth of small flames. He brushed away the snow from the icy ground, and a tiny golden key stole his attention. He soon forgot about the cold and dug deep into the earth for the answer. A small iron box was that answer, and sure enough the key fit.
