Sharon Kleyne, host of The Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water, Global Climate Change and Your Health, the nationally syndicated radio show on Voice of America, is calling on scientists, researchers, government leaders and universities to collaborate on a comprehensive international water plan that will ensure water availability to everyone on the planet. Citing alarming new UNICEF statistics, Kleyne said, “We face a global water crisis that will have horrific consequences if we don’t act now!”

Sharon Kleyne urges everyone to become better educated about the state of this emergency. According to UNICEF (http://www.unicef.org/supply/index_cpe_water.html), for instance, almost 1.1 billion people lack access to safe water. “The price of water is increasing—sometimes dramatically—throughout the world,” says Edwin Clark, II, in a report from Earth Policy Institute. The report states that over the past five years, municipal water rates have increased by an average of 27% in the United States, by 45% in Australia, by 50% in South Africa and by 58% in Canada. In Tunisia, the price of irrigation water increased fourfold in a decade.

The statistics don’t get better. For example, the average American uses close to 200 gallons of water per day, while the average African family uses 8 gallons per day. Over 4.5 trillion gallons of water are consumed in the U.S. each month, while in developing countries women walk an average of 4 miles a day to fetch water and carry on their heads an average weight of 44 pounds. Over 3 million deaths each year are attributed to dirty water and poor sanitation. In the past twenty years, diarrhea caused by unsanitary water has killed more children than all the people lost to armed conflict since World War II.

Sharon Kleyne, Water Life Science® advocate and founder of Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®, believes that two things must happen to begin to turn these devastating statistics around. “First,” she says, “we must develop new technology to reduce the amount of fresh groundwater that runs out to sea. This immense quantity of water would be put to better use as drinking water and irrigation water. “Second,” Kleyne continues, “we must create international, national and regional water plans that suggest and monitor pricing and offer beneficial water use and availability for everyone.”

Sharon Kleyne, globally respected and admired by scientists, doctors and researchers for her work in water vapor evaporation and supplementation of the body’s water vapor and has single-mindedly carried the torch of water research and new technology since the 1980s, calls on U.S. leaders to convene an historic water summit to get the planning ball rolling. “We are mostly water,” Kleyne reminds us. “We cannot live without water; without the water vapor in the air, we cannot breathe, and without drinking water, humanity is doomed. We must act now to prevent that.”
