TPOTY 2008


Water makes up over two thirds of this planet's surface area and is vital to sustain life, determining where we build our towns and cities. As oceans, glaciers, ice, snow, rain and steam, water shapes and creates the natural world, sculpting some of the Earth's most challenging terrain and creating playgrounds for skiers, swimmers, sailors, divers and adventurers. And, of course, it is an essential part of our daily lives.
