Should bottled water be banned to protect our planet's hydrologic cycle, even if it means sacrificing convenience and personal preference?
Name one way in which human activities can impact the hydrologic cycle and explain how it can affect the environment.
The hydrologic cycle is like a big circle of water in nature. First, the sun heats up water from rivers, lakes, and oceans. This makes the water turn into invisible gas called water vapor that goes up in the sky. Then, the air gets cooler and the water vapor turns back into tiny drops of water. These drops join together to form clouds. When it rains or snows, the clouds give back the water to Earth and it starts all over again! It's like a never-ending dance between sun, air, clouds, and rain!
