EVENT: World Water Day

March 22 is World Water Day.

Maybe you've already read what Peter Benchley, the author of Jaws, had to say about the high seas:

"Without the oceans there would be no life on Earth. So water is the be-all and end-all of life as we know it. If we kill everything in the ocean, and if we pollute the ocean to a point where it can't sustain life, we're committing suicide." (Times Online)

Here are some articles about H2O:
