Definitely not. The fresh water availability on earth is only a meagre of about 3% out of total quantity of water on earth. This very limited quantity is also now a days dwindling due to: # pollution of inland water bodies by indiscriminate discharging of untreated effluents, # over exploitation of ground water sources, # melting of glaciers and icebergs because of global warming, # reduction in precipitation due to environmental degradation especially by deforestation, and so on so forth by the unwise human activities. Hence as on date, it is undoubtably very limited only !
