    not edifying at all.
    I've always found an argument is stronger when you don't contradict yourself inside of a single sentence.

    If the evaporation of fresh water is accelerated, how can there be less rain? Water vapour doesn't just disappear into thin air.

    How does less snow have any relation to less rain? Precipitation happens, whether it is snow or rain depends on the air temperature. But that doesn't cause less precipitation.

    ahummm....the fresh water evaporated isn't goin to all fall back in the rivers-lakes it comes from . we're not taking oceans.only 10%
    of the water evaporated from the oceans are absorbed by the the ground,90% is returned to the oceans.we're talking fresh water,and it's not the same scenario at all .

    in the case of the fresh waters , a great deal of the water evaporated is goin to fall back on the ground. only 1/3 of the precipitations returns into rivers-lakes , the ground absorbing a great deal . seriously,the situation isn't nice at all. we need snow,as much as we need rain to make sure our fresh water is replenished on a regular cycle basis. nothing related to rocket science.


    denying that global warming has a big deal of negative effect on our fresh water reserves is really playing the head in sand game.

    Newsflash: "Salt water" doesn't evaporate. The evaporation process leaves the salt behind and creates fresh water. Thus the oceans, which cover 70% of the earth's surface, are a massive source of fresh water via heating and evaporation. Water evaporation from land is a much smaller contributor to the global water cycle.

    Newsflash #2: The majority of drinking water comes from ground water (aquifers), not from rivers and lakes.

    Ever heard of a thing called "monsoon rains?" Massive amounts of rain .... happens in the tropics, where it is hot. Global warming is not going to inhibit the atmospheric water cycle. In fact, more heat could enhance the water cycle due to increased evaporation from the oceans.

    Regardless, a changing climate is not something we can do anything about so you might as well get used to the idea the climate is going to do what it wants.

    The distribution of water on, in, and above the Earth
    The World's Water - Distribution of Earth's Water

    The Earth is a watery place. But just how much water exists on, in, and above our planet? About 71 percent of the Earth's surface is water-covered, and the oceans hold about 96.5 percent of all Earth's water. Water also exists in the air as water vapor, in rivers and lakes, in icecaps and glaciers, in the ground as soil moisture and in aquifers, and even in you and your dog.

    This bar chart shows how almost all of Earth's water is saline and is found in the oceans. Of the small amount that is actually freshwater, only a relatively small portion is available to sustain human, plant, and animal life.

    In the first bar, notice how only 2.5% of Earth's water is freshwater - the amount needed for life to survive


    The middle bar shows the breakdown of freshwater. Almost all of it is locked up in ice and in the ground. Only a little more than 1.2% of all freshwater is surface water, which serves most of life's needs.

    The right bar shows the breakdown of surface freshwater. Most of this water is locked up in ice, and another 20.9% is found in lakes. Rivers make up 0.49% of surface freshwater.

    SUPUTIN : Newsflash #2: The majority of drinking water comes from ground water (aquifers), not from rivers and lakes.


    Although rivers account for only a small amount of freshwater, this is where humans get a large portion of their water from.







    Water evaporates, changing from a liquid to a gas called water vapor, at the surface of the oceans. This helps keep the water cycle going by moving water from the oceans to the atmosphere! When the water evaporates, the salt is left behind in the ocean.
    .....and get back into the ocean since only 10% of the ocean's evaporated water is dispersed over the ground,90% is flowing back into the ocean.not a real source of fresh water for us.

    And that's where the government deposits mega quantities of human waste.
    Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add 'within the limits of the law' because law is often but the tyrant's will, and always so when it violates the rights of the individual.

    We already have desalination plants. Israel is actually a pretty big user.
    And yet, after nearly 10 years of government by Stephen Harper and his anti-choice army, you can still get an abortion in Canada. At this point, the political right’s agenda is so well hidden Sherlock Holmes couldn’t find it with a Huawei P30 powered by a trillion Watsons.

    BTW, if anyone believes the government gives a tiny damn about pollution, that should completely dispel that myth.
