Does this planet need rain?

Human life depends on rain. Rain is the source for many cultures where rivers, lakes, or aquifers are not easily accessible. Most of the Earth’s surface is covered with water. 97% percent of Earth’s water is salty seawater, which is not used by animals and humans. Rainwater is a natural feature of the earth’s weather system. Air currents in the atmosphere bring evaporated water from the ocean and the earth’s surface up into the sky. The evaporated liquid condenses in the cold air, forming moisture-filled rain clouds. According to the United States Geological Survey, rainwater seeps into the ground in a process called infiltration. Some of the water seeps deep beneath the top layers of soil where it fills up the space between subsurface rocks–it becomes groundwater, also called the water table. Rain makes our life possible by providing water for agriculture, industry, hygiene, and electrical energy, and people collect and depend on rain for personal and public use. Plants draw the water they need to process sunlight into food from the earth that has been saturated with rainwater, and the animals survive on those hydrated plants as well as standing and running water delivered by rain. Rain cools the air that has been overheated by sunlight, rehydrating dry leaves and grasses as well as feeding them. It supports freshwater fish and amphibians by keeping rivers, streams and swamps filled. Totally the planet earth needs rainwater and our life completely depended upon rainwater for survival.

 Why does the earth need rain?

1. The air becomes  pure.

So many researchers have confirmed that the air is cleaner after heavy rainfall. In the process of rain, “that as raindrops fall through the atmosphere. The rainwater has the ability to attract hundreds of particles of pollutants like dander, soot, sulfates, and bacteria before hitting the ground. After a rainfall would be most beneficial and lead to the least risk of coughing and sneezing that is caused by air pollutants.

2. Chemicals released from rain are stress-relieving.

When it rains, it causes the soil and plants to release a chemical called petrichor – this odor is caused by the decomposition of vegetable oils, bacterial compounds, and atmospheric chemicals to create ozone. This chemical is responsible for the “smell of rain” and helps some people stay calm and relaxed, the earthy smell of rainy soil and the scent coming from the earth bring us joy when it rains.

3.     Rain is the primary basis for animals and plants.

Tropical rainforests contain over 30 million species of plants and animals. That’s half of the Earth’s wildlife and at least two-thirds of its plant species. Precipitation supplies the water that earthly organic entities need – either straightforwardly as downpour that falls on the soil where plants develop, or by implication as lakes, streams, and lakes where creatures can drink. Plants need downpours so they can get the energy they need to have photosynthesis. As you most likely are aware, a few creatures eat plants, so those creatures need the downpour to get their food. Without downpour their eventually no plants for them to eat. What’s more, there are carnivores who eat different creatures that eat plants (herbivores). So without rainfall, there would be no plants and animals, which means no creatures. So essentially, without downpour, their future is no life on Earth.

4.    Rain is a necessity for agriculture

Rain is more important to agriculture. Without water supplies, plants will not develop as needed. Water is essential for the maintenance of physiological and chemical processes in plant structures. Rain is of vital importance for the food business to thrive. Water is also collected as groundwater and is required to sustain farms during drought. To support food sources, people need to get legitimate views on the importance of rain and accept its impact and responsibility for taking good care of it.

5. Hydrologic Cycle

Rain and snow are part of a larger process called the hydrologic cycle, which transports water from the ocean to land and back again. Solar radiation warms the ocean and drives evaporation, which leaves the ocean salt behind. The wind carries this moisture over the land, where it condenses to form clouds and falls back to the ground as precipitation. This precipitation in turn feeds lakes and streams that ultimately carry the water back to the sea. Only 0.001 percent of Earth’s water is found in the atmosphere at any one time, but the atmosphere nonetheless serves as the conduit that transports water from the ocean to the mainland.

6. Rain is beneficial to Aquatic Life

Aquatic organisms that live in freshwater, like trout and catfish in streams or aquatic plants in ponds, depending on precipitation. Aquatic organisms that live in freshwater, like trout and catfish in streams or aquatic plants in ponds, depending on precipitation. Water can absorb a lot of heat before it begins to get hot. A large body of water heats up very slowly, and it cools down just as slowly. This property allows living things to survive in water’s fairly constant environment. Water is unusual because its solid form is not as dense as its liquid form. This is why ice forms at the top of a lake, floating on the unfrozen water below it and insulating aquatic organisms from extreme temperatures. Without this property, lakes would freeze solid throughout, trapping and killing fish and other aquatic life.

7. Rain is fundamental to all living organisms.

Rain that falls on the soil where plants grow, or indirectly in the form of lakes, streams, and ponds where animals can drink. Animal and human cells are made up of 90 percent water, so without freshwater, or rainfall most life could not exist.

8. Groundwater

When rain falls to the ground, some of it flows along the land surface to streams, rivers, or lakes, ponds, some moisturize the ground rainfall will gradually leak their direction to the ground and infiltrate the permeable rock layers. This groundwater plays an important role in life directly and indirectly. Springwater from underground aquifers supplies streams and ponds, and people have used groundwater for drinking and drowning crops from earlier days. Groundwater is particularly important for life during the dry season, as freshwater secluded wells can be springs in these situations. Groundwater is the source of about 37 percent of the water that county and city water departments supply to households and businesses. It provides drinking water for more than 90 percent of the rural population who do not get their water.


Is it possible to survive without rain ?. Of course, it is not possible but whether supplementary arrangements can be made. Rain is the basis for all living organisms, animals, birds, humans. It is essential to get as much rain as the earth needs. This is because when there is too little rain, many problems arise. Forests bring rain, and the conservation of forests is our responsibility.
