What is water for earth?
Water helps to maintain biodiversity: Bodies of water, such as lakes, rivers, and oceans, are home to a diverse range of plant and animal species. These habitats provide food and shelter for countless species, and play a critical role in maintaining biodiversity.
Water plays a crucial role in regulating the earth’s climate: Water helps to regulate the earth’s temperature and humidity levels. It does this by absorbing heat from the sun and releasing it back into the environment through processes such as evaporation and transpiration. This helps to ensure that the earth’s climate remains stable and conducive to life.
Water is essential for the survival of all living things: All living organisms require water to survive. From tiny microorganisms to large mammals, water plays a vital role in maintaining their bodily functions and physiological processes.
