Dr. Neil S. Grigg Joins Sharon Kleyne To Discuss Water Trouble Spots on Earth. Grigg & Kleyne Examine World’s Water Problems.

Sharon Kleyne welcomed Dr. Neil S. Grigg back to her nationally syndicated radio program, The Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water, Global Climate Change and Your Health on VoiceAmerica sponsored by Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® to discuss water hot spots in the world and how a major country like China is dealing with them. “This program plants the seed around the world,” said Kleyne in her opening remarks, “that the life of the water vapor in your body is the life of water on this planet. Nobody understands that better than Dr. Grigg. He gets it,” Kleyne continued, “that Water Life Science® must be a priority for everyone.” Kleyne also shared that China, with the world’s largest population and second-largest economy, has been plagued by air pollution for years, but has made heroic strides in cleaning up both its air and water in the last decade.

Dr. Grigg, Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Colorado State University, is an experienced educator, researcher, consulting engineer and public official who applauds all efforts to clean up air and replenish fresh water supplies. Throughout his career, Grigg has focused on water management and institutions, water rights, water supplies, state water planning, water law, policy and regulation, infrastructure development and water security. These diverse efforts have taken him to far-flung destinations, and he has worked on projects in Africa, Asia and Latin America. Grigg began his radio visit by agreeing with Kleyne that “the management of water begins with gaining an understanding of evaporation and how to deal with it.” Grigg also supported Kleyne’s oft-expressed concern for healthy soil. “Soil can’t be too dry,” said Grigg. “Farmland must be moist. If water is scarce,” Grigg added, “soil will remain sterile and won’t be able to produce the living microorganisms that enrich soil life.” Kleyne suggested that this process cannot occur without the supplementation provided by the atmosphere’s water vapor.

Kleyne and Grigg spent much of the program discussing climate change and water recycling. Grigg said that it was important that people distinguish between climate and weather. Weather is what’s happening—rain, cold, hot—at any given moment; climate is the bigger picture. “I think most people agree that the climate around the world is changing,” Grigg said. “It’s heating up. The question, mostly political, is what are we humans doing to contribute to that heating process and how might we reverse the damage?”

Kleyne reminded listeners that water vapor in the air—the atmosphere—defines the climate. “For example,” Kleyne said, “there is less water in arid sections of China than in humid sections.” Grigg imagines that new technology will be developed to deal more effectively with climate change, but earth will also see climate-induced migrations, especially in places like Asia and Africa where water can be scarce. Another example of climate-induced migration would be the U.S. Dustbowl migration in the 1920s and 30s. One other technology development that is already underway in many global locations, including China, is green roof technology. This refers to city dwellers growing gardens and lawns on the roofs of buildings.

Kleyne, also the founder of Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®, teaches that everything about life is water. “The body water is life,” said Kleyne. “All living things exist with and in the atmosphere’s water vapor.”
