Guest: L. DeWayne Cecil, Ph.D. http://www.climate.gov & Dr. Gerald H. Pollack, Ph.D.,
Sharon Kleyne, host of the nationally syndicated radio program, The Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water, Water Life Science®/Nature’s Pharma® & Your Health sponsored by Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® on VoiceAmerica and World Talk Radio, welcomed back two valued guests and research colleagues, Dr. L. DeWayne Cecil and Dr. Gerald H. Pollack. The three water and climate research trailblazers convened to discuss evaporation of the body’s water vapor, evaporation of the water vapor in earth’s atmosphere and the world’s growing water crisis.
Dr. Cecil, a climatologist and atmospheric scientist for more than 40 years, talked about the frustration research climate scientists encounter when attempting to secure funding for water and climate research. Cecil pointed out that politicians are uncomfortable with uncertainty in science, yet uncertainty is what fuels scientific discovery. Cecil elaborated that in the last four years congress has cut program after program, thus inhibiting the water research that is vital to our survival.
Dr. Pollack, Professor of Bioengineering at the University of Washington, Editor-in-Chief of WATER and the author of the groundbreaking book, The Fourth Phase of Water, explained that we must understand evaporation of clouds and the living soil in order to understand climate change. “There is almost no research in soil evaporation,” said Pollack. Pollack, also a Founding Fellow of the American Institute of Medical and Biological Engineering and the first recipient of the Emote Peace Prize (in 2016), promotes desalinization of ocean water as a potential partial solution to water shortages worldwide.
Dr. Cecil, who has working with desalinization processes for many years, agrees with Pollack. “The ocean is a huge resource if we can perfect desalinization and handling the waste,” said Cecil. Currently, though, the cost of desalinization is prohibitive. Cecil and Pollack pointed to a new desalinization plant that is starting up in California, but at a cost of over a billion dollars. “If we do not act, though,” said Cecil, “we are setting ourselves up for some dire situations.”
Kleyne approved of desalinization operations and added clarification by stating that the word dry signifies the evaporation of water vapor. “The whole body is impaired without enough water,” said Kleyne. Kleyne went on to insist that we all need to make water, a living entity, our best friend. “on this program,” Kleyne boldly said, “we’re on a mission for everyone to listen to the Power of Water®!”
