Of all of the water on the planet, only 1% of it is drinkable. That means 7 billion people are sharing the precious little drinking water that we have, which really makes every drop count.

The UK has starting operating the Thanet wind farm, the largest offshore wind farm in the world — for now. The wind farm occupies 35 square miles off the coast of Kent and contains 100 turbines capable of generating 300 MW of power.  This new project establishes two major milestones for Britain:  the country is now generating more offshore wind power than the rest of the world combined and it’s now caught up with other European countries like Germany by having generated 5 GW of power from renewable energy. The Thanet wind farm will only hold the title of world’s largest for a short time though.  Two larger offshore wind farms are currently under construction — the Greater Gabbard project with a 500 MW capacity and the London Array project with a 1 GW capacity — but both of those will reside in the UK, meaning it will continue to be a world leader in offshore wind
