Sharon Kleyne, Cecil & Grigg Agree on Perils of Excess Evaporation. Sharon Kleyne, Cecil and Grigg Say Body Water Evaporation Threatens Health.
Renowned water advocate Sharon Kleyne, founder of Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®, recently met with distinguished colleagues L. DeWayne Cecil, Ph.D. and Neil S. Grigg, Ph.D. for a spirited conversation about the role of evaporation in earth’s ever-worsening water crisis.
“Government leaders are making a terrible mistake,” Sharon Kleyne said, “by not making water the number one priority of our infrastructure. Without the atmosphere’s water vapor,” she continued, “we would all be sand; we would be dust. We can’t breathe without earth’s water vapor. Our organs can’t function or fight off disease if we lose too much of our body water vapor due to excessive evaporation (dehydration).”
Dr. Cecil (www.climate.gov), Principle Scientist at Sustainable Earth Observation Systems, LLC, agreed with Sharon Kleyne. “The biggest problem,” Cecil said, “is that we do not have a water policy, a water plan on the international, regional or local level. I worked in the government sector as a researcher and scientist for thirty-one years,” Cecil continued, “and I never met sustained interest in a comprehensive water plan. In the same way, we have no climate change plan, no energy plan. Earth cannot survive without such comprehensive plans.”
Dr. Grigg (http://www.engr.colostate.edu/ce), a professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Colorado State University, agreed with Kleyne and Cecil. “Water,” he said, “is in high demand, yet limited in quantity. It is easily polluted. People living in poverty can’t always easily access it. There is global competition for water, and there are arguments and debates about international water usage. All of these factors,” Grigg explained, “combine to create a kind of social and political gridlock.”
Sharon Kleyne, host of the syndicated The Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water, Global Climate Change and Your Health radio program on Voice of America, noted that Dr. Grigg is currently studying evaporation in plant life. Kleyne’s own water research technology has brought her to the point where she believes that the major breakthrough in the study of evaporation may very well come from the study of plants. Dr. Cecil, who said his current goal was to come up with water use plans supporting sustainability on a global scale, supported Dr. Grigg’s assertion that “evaporation is a big player in extreme climate events such as droughts, floods and monster storms.”
“Excessive water evaporation affects our climate,” Cecil said, “ and we as a global community are not yet coming to terms with that fact.”
Sharon Kleyne, Cecil and Grigg agree that people everywhere must gain a better understanding of earth’s water vapor and the fact that body water vapor keeps us alive. Kleyne said that people ought to do all that they can to slow down the body’s dehydration due to evaporation, remembering to drink at least 8 to 10 glasses of water every day, and drink a full glass every time for maximum beneficial results. “One must slow down the body water vapor evaporation process,” said Kleyne. “Live longer. Be healthier,” Kleyne added. “Many people don’t understand this key point: water has energy, even the body water vapor has energy.”
All three research scientists and educators called for scientists, researchers, politicians and educators to come together to create a global water plan that will benefit everybody. In doing so, Sharon Kleyne urged “meeting in the middle”, rather than separating over ideology. “We need to create such a plan from the roots up,” Kleyne concluded, “and not settle for some scatter-shot approach.”
