OMGoodness! I was going to say that is the scariest picture I’ve ever seen, but I read the thread first and can’t stop laughing. You folks are a riot!
Do you have a mathematical equation for this?
Forgive me, but this is as hard for me to believe as the stuff about a woman’s monthly amounting to less than a tablespoon of blood.
Implausible hyperbole. (:
I’d still say that it’s enough. And for how much water is below the earth’s surface? Probably just as much. Thanks to being a geologically active planet with a molten interior, we are constantly replenishing our oceans and atmosphere. Volcanic eruptions and earthquakes aren’t just “acts of God.” They are his gifts.
“How even this much water came to be on the Earth and whether any significant amount is trapped far beneath Earth’s surface remain topics of research.”
Ok, could this be where this is going? What happens to the water that is pumped several thousand feet down into a shale formation to force out the hydrocarbons trapped in the shale?
This photo will be used by cruel teachers to scare the children!
I saw this pic on The Weather Channel this morning before seeing it here.
