The global fresh water crisis, currently out of control and projected to impact five billion of Earth’s eight billion people by the year 2050,* could be solved, reports water advocate and radio host Sharon Kleyne. “We know what must be done,” says Kleyne, “and we have most of the technology. The only impediment would be failure to educate our leaders about the life and death importance of fresh water and water security.

In the October 6, 2014 broadcast of her Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water radio show, Kleyne will outline a five step program that she believes would resolve the crisis. The program would stabilize the global fresh water supply and save the lives of the millions of people who die each year from water related illness.
Sharon Kleyne hosts the syndicated Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water radio show, heard on VoiceAmerica and Apple iTunes. The show is sponsored by Bio-Logic Aqua Research, a global research and technology center specializing in fresh water, the atmosphere and dehydration. Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® is the Research Center’s signature product for dry eyes. Kleyne is Bio Logic Aqua’s Founder and Research Director.
As show host, Kleyne has interviewed dozens of global leaders, including politicians, scientists, physicians, journalists, activists and water related charities on all aspects of fresh water and the global fresh water crisis.
The first step, according to Kleyne, is water security. People must be confident that their government is doing everything possible to provide safe and abundant water, and that they are not importing fresh water from somebody who might either take it way or experience their own water shortage. The crisis can only be solved if national, regional and local governments make water security their top priority.
Kleyne’s second step is water sustainability. Fresh water is a finite resource, says Kleyne. Although water covers 70 percent of Earth’s surface, only three percent is fresh water and only one percent of the three percent is usable. The good news, Kleyne notes, is that water is 100% recyclable.
In Kleyne’s program, water in the ground, on the surface and in the atmosphere is equally important because Earth’s natural water recycling depends on all three (and on the oceans, wind, gravity and the sun). Controlling pollution is an important aspect of water sustainability, especially pollutants that effect atmospheric humidity and the hydrologic cycle.
Kleyne’s third step is water allocation. This involves capturing, purifying, distributing, reclaiming, re-purifying water, and returning it to ground, surface or. atmosphere in as clean a condition as when it was removed. This comprehensive program would increase the amount of available water on the Earth’s surface and help slow or end global drought and dehydration.
The global model for water sustainability and allocation, according to Kleyne, is the tiny island nation of Singapore. Their system of capture, distribution, conservation and recycling proves that the problem can be solved. Despite the world’s highest population density, Singapore is virtually water independent.
Step four is water education. Everyone must understand the importance of fresh water, including water vapor in the atmosphere, to health and life, says Kleyne. Our leaders must also realize that that water is the basis of all economic activity. Without this understanding, the human population will never gain the foresight, imagination or will to implement these programs
Step five is water politics. Water has been the basis of politics in the Netherlands for 400 years, Kleyne notes. Their efforts to move and conserve water led to Europe’s first democratically elected government. According to Kleyne, water security must become the number one priority of every government, on every level. Our leaders must learn to work together and to consider the long term well being of the people - and the environment - over short term power.
As Kleyne says at the end of her show, “Earth is whispering – never say goodbye – you can make a difference if you pay it forward.”
