Water is the source of all life on earth. Water is essential for earth itself, and for our lives, for bodily intake, and sanitation. As the veins and heart make us alive, rivers and oceans are the arteries and heart of earth. The earth consists of 70% water, and of this 2,5% is fresh water. In a global perspective this points to that fresh water is a scarcity problem.
Water is a prerequisite for economic growth and social development and a better administration and use of water is a prerequisite for the eradication of poverty. Due to the fact that the water we have is very unevenly distributed this have been and is a strong contributor to conflicts throughout history. Scarcity of water leads to scarcity conflicts, illness and death.
The countries that are exposed for these conflicts are where water is scarce, and they are dependent on other countries’ rivers. Only one third of development countries have access to clean water, with a result of 30000 deaths every day. 2 million people die per year of water diseases.
A result, the water crisis could be the 6th mass distinction. One of the UN millennium goals is to reduce the amount of people without access to clean water by half within 2015. I will now examine hurdles for this goal, and solutions for humanity.

Bilbao FC, Athletic Club and BizcayaFootball was introduced to Bilbao by two distinct groups of players, both with British connections; British steel and shipyard workers and Basque students returning from schools in Britain. In the late 19th century Bilbao was a leading port of an important industrial area with iron mines and shipyards nearby. It was the driving force of the Spanish economy and as a result attracted many migrant workers. Among them were miners from the north-east of England, and shipyard workers from Sunderland, Southampton and Portsmouth. The British workers brought with them (as to so many other parts of the world) the game of football. In the early 1890s these workers came together and formed Bilbao Football Club.
Meanwhile, sons of the Basque educated classes had made the opposite journey and went to Britain to complete their studies in civil engineering and commerce. While in the United Kingdom these students developed an interest in football and on their return to Bilbao they began to arrange games with British workers. In 1898 students belonging to the Gymnasium Zamacois founded the Athletic Club, using the English spelling. In 1901 a meeting was held in the Cafe Garcia which established more formal rules and regulations. In 1902 the two Bilbao clubs formed a combined team, known as Bizcaya, in the first Copa del Rey. They returned with the trophy after defeating FC Barcelona in the final. This would lead to the eventual merger of the two clubs as Athletic Club in 1903. In the same year Basque students also formed Athletic Club Madrid. This club later evolved into Atlético Madrid. The club's foundation date is a subject of debate among football historians. The club itself declares 1898, but others claim 1901 or 1903 as the true founding year.
