9 of the world's most majestic rivers in peril

............................ from Mother Nature Network ..................................

Water covers nearly three-fourths of Earth’s surface, but most of it is salty or permanently frozen. 70& of the world’s fresh water is locked in the ice of Antarctica. 53,000 cubic miles of water passes through the planet's lakes and rivers, which are under constant assault from human encroachment. By the year 2025, 52 countries — 2/3's of the world's population — will likely experience water shortages, according to U.S. government data.
