Without water, organisms could not exist. Water is a resource that
should not be taken for granted. It needs to be conserved, just as we
save other valuable resources.
Water is one of the weirdest compounds known to humans. The
difference between the boiling point and freezing point of water is one
of the largest ranges of any compound. It is this span of temperature
that mirrors the range of where life can exist, from bacteria to humans.
Water also has a very high specific heat, which means that it can
absorb or lose much heat before its temperature changes. This is
important in maintaining body heat in mammals. It also takes a lot of
energy before vaporization can occur. For this reason, water
evaporates slowly from ponds and lakes, where many life forms are
dependent on a stable, warm environment.
