Grants Pass, OR (PRWEB) April 22, 2015
Despite the ongoing drought in California and other parts of the United States, and despite global fresh water shortages and thousands of water related deaths each day, there is potentially plenty of fresh water for everyone. However, new technology must be developed and fresh water must be managed properly and get to where it is needed. That was the conclusion of radio host Sharon Kleyne, who will discuss global drought and water shortages on her upcoming Shari Kleyne Hour™ Power of Water® radio show.
Kleyne will present her views in depth on her radio broadcast of April 20, 2015. For podcasts of that and other past shows, go to http://www.SharonKleyneHour.com.
The syndicated Sharon Kleyne Hour™ Power of Water® radio show, hosted by fresh water advocate Sharon Kleyne, is heard weekly on VoiceAmerica and Apple iTunes. The education oriented show is sponsored by Bio-Logic Aqua® Research, a global research and technology center founded by Kleyne and specializing in fresh water, the atmosphere, water vapor and dehydration. Nature’s Mist® Face of the Water® is the Research Center’s signature product for dry and dehydrated skin and eyes.
A billion people on Earth lack safe and sufficient water, according to Kleyne, and a child dies every 15 seconds from illness related to lack of safe and sufficient water. People are also dying because of ongoing water wars and water disputes.
The situation is especially tragic, according to Kleyne, because it is unnecessary.
Fresh water shortages in most developing countries, says Kleyne, can be attributed either to lack of infrastructure to move water around, lack of water treatment facilities and lack of education about recycling and conservation. “In too many cases,” Kleyne explains, “the problem can be traced to government corruption and an unwillingness to spend the money.” She notes that fresh water wells are extremely cost effective in rural villages in Africa and Central America and that a small investment often saves many lives and greatly improves the village’s economic life.
There are an estimated 342,543,511 cubic miles of water on Earth, says Kleyne. Water covers 71% of the Earth surface and infuses the ground below and the air above. Of all the water on Earth, only 3.5% is “fresh” (not salty) and 97% of the 3.5 % is polar ice. The remaining 0.3% of Earth’s total fresh water constitutes 100% of the water in lakes and rivers, plus all ground water and atmospheric water (humidity, clouds, etc.).
“That 0.3% may sound minuscule,” Kleyne explains, “but it is more than enough for everyone for drinking, cooking, sanitation, agriculture and industry.” To back up her assertion, Kleyne points out that the total amount of water contained in every living land organism on Earth, from grass, to trees, to elephants, to bacteria to humans, is estimated at only 0.003% of Earth’s total water.
All we have to do, according to Kleyne, is capture more of the fresh water, clean it up, recycle it following use, and find ways to get it to the people who need it most.
