Why do we associate the color green with the earth even though 75% of the earth is water (blue)?

Beats me. I always hear it’s called the blue planet. It looks that way because most of our planet is covered with the ocean. Then there’s the clouds, which look white from space.

Perhaps you’re confusing the term “Green Earth” often associated with Earth Day. From space, earth is blue and white.
