Earth Has Many More Rivers and Streams Than We Thought

Rivers and streams cover much more of the planet than geologists previously estimated, according to a new study published in Science. In total, this new estimate shows that, excluding land with glaciers, Earth is covered by just under 300,000 square miles (773,000 square kilometers) of rivers and streams. That’s more square footage than the state of Texas, and it’s as much as 44 percent higher than previous counts.

Which means there are more rivers and streams for Scott Pruitt’s EP to f*&k with.
