    So after a little bit of thinking I realized that there was now way to replenish our water.

    Hello @mr.coolio ! Earth has plenty of water in the form of Oceans, Seas, rivers, underground water etc. so its unlikely that water is gonna disappear any soon. But the point is "Will earth run out of Portable water i.e water fit for drinking?" Well to understand this you must know that of all the water a very tiny fraction is fit for drinking. Most of the water contained in oceans and seas are unfit for drinking. Only waters from rivers, lakes, ponds, underground sources etc are fit for drinking which are called as Fresh waters. So if we continue using these waters carelessly or what i like to say "Ruthlessly" in such a manner that they are not able to replenish themselves then its not deniable that these sources will die soon and we will be left with no water to drink!

    Another global concern is global warming. Global warming, if continued at this increasing rate, will melt the ice burgs and glaciers around the north and south pole. This water can be used for drinking, but the thing is that if humans do not use it efficiently, the water may get contaminated. So, this extra water will throw off the balance between the regular amount of water on earth, causing floods in coastal areas.

    That's right, water stored in the form of polar Ice can be an alternate source of drinking water.
