World Water Crisis Impacts Climate Change Says Author & Environmental Consultant Fred Pearce

Fred Pearce & Sharon Kleyne Say Water Is #1 Priority of 21st Century. Fresh Water Is Scarce Warn Sharon Kleyne & Fred Pearce.

Fred Pearce has fought for years for cleaner water and a wider understanding of the importance of water in global societies. Author of When the Rivers Run Dry, Earth Then and Now and other books, Pearce’s experiences as an Environmental Consultant and water researcher aligns his work with Sharon Kleyne, host of the 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®.

Like Kleyne, Pearce believes that the root of all problems on earth, including climate change, is the planet’s water crisis. Both Kleyne and Pearce point out that in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries when earth’s population was smaller, humanity could use water once, let it run off to the sea and wait for nature’s natural cycle to replenish the water humans needed through rainfall. But now the human population on earth has exploded. “We need to take steps to speed up the supplementation and replenishment process,” says Kleyne, “or we will face catastrophic results,”

According to Pearce, solutions to these these catastrophic results will involve recycling waste water and in some cases redirecting the flow of rivers. Describing recycling, Pearce pointed to Singapore, where recycled waste water is being channeled back into reservoirs to be used again instead of being allowed to run to the ocean. Kleyne, also the founder and director of Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science® and one of the most respected international new water researchers, agrees that this model must be implemented in cities all around the globe in order to save lives and reduce the outbreak of diseases sparked and spread by unclean water and too little water.

Pearce, also a freelance journalist and expert on the relationship of water shortages in the Middle East and climate change, points to the Middle East where fear and poor farming practices have created an even greater desert than existed there before. Pearce sees the ongoing diversion and drying up of rivers as a major and devastating crisis. “Rivers like the Nile are no longer running to the sea,” he says. This interrupts nature’s natural process of replenishing water, creating water scarcity and hotter temperatures. “Most of us,” Pearce adds, “will experience climate change more through changes of water than changes of temperature. I believe that water will be the number one issue in the 21st century for all of us.”

“Water has got to be our number one priority every day,” says Kleyne. “What governments in the Middle East really want is water,” Kleyne says. So far, poor decisions have thwarted them. Pearce notes how during the war the Iraqi government forced the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers away from the marshes, effectively drying them out. “The more water you remove from the soil,” says Kleyne, “which is a living organism, the drier you make the atmosphere, which contains the water vapor you need to breathe in order to live and be healthy.”

Global Water Crisis Grabs Sharon Kleyne’s Attention

Water Advocate Sharon Kleyne Supports New Water Research & Holistic Practices. Radio Host Kleyne Says Children & Young People Hold Keys to Future Global Health.

You don’t have to be a scientist to know that planet earth faces a water crisis of unprecedented scope. Every day there are signs, reports and stories about millions of people getting sick or dying because they lack adequate fresh water for drinking, cooking and bathing. Animals, plants and soil also suffer.

Sharon Kleyne, founder of Bio-Logic Aqua® Water Life Science®, has spent many years studying and researching the water crisis that threatens life on this planet. As host of the nationally syndicated The Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water, Global Climate Change and Your Health on VoiceAmerica sponsored by Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®, Kleyne regularly warns people about the crisis and challenges scientists, researchers and teachers to educate the general public about the dangers of dry eye syndrome and dehydration of the earth’s atmosphere and body water vapor.

Kleyne points out that millions of people every year suffer from dry eye symptoms. In extreme cases, these symptoms can result in blindness. Your eye’s tear film, Kleyne teaches, is 99 percent water and it is always evaporating. Because it is, you need to replenish the tear film’s water vapor with pure, fresh water. Kleyne also believes that we must care for the water vapor of earth’s atmosphere by preventing fresh water run-off to the oceans and constructing more reservoirs and dams. “Earth’s water vapor atmosphere is literally the breath of life,” says Kleyne.

Kleyne has always embraced opportunities to teach children and young people about water, and she makes a special effort to reach out to them. In Kleyne’s experience, children are more open-minded and imaginative. “We should be including children and young people in the discussion about ways to provide fresh, pure water to everyone on earth,” says Kleyne. Kleyne also believes that we should be vigorously encouraging young people and their teachers to grow in awareness. We should be helping them and encouraging them to discover new technology solutions for this international water crisis that threatens their future and the future of earth itself.

All human life is connected with and flows from nature. The flow is air, which is moisture and vital to all life. “If you talk about air, you must talk about water,” Kleyne says. “Everyone must learn to breathe as the earth breathes.” Kleyne believes that water science camps in schools would be a positive step. She also thinks that young people should be encouraged to participate in new water research and the development of new technology by being recruited as interns.

For example, Kleyne refers to her research team’s efforts in Bio-Logic Aqua® Water Life Science® research. Their invention of Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® provides dry eye relief in the form of Trade Secret tissue culture grade water that is applied to eyes as a patented micron-size mist from a personal, portable hand-held humidifier. Today, Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® is endorsed by more than 22,000 ophthalmologists and optometrists nationwide. Though this original product is the result of new fresh water technology, it also draws on the wisdom and efficiency of holistic practices such as Qigong, which dates back thousands of years. Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® is the only pure, fresh water alternative technology in the world, and it is exactly this kind of invention that Kleyne sees young people creating in the future. Meanwhile, adults should be stepping up and expanding their water education.

Global Water Crisis Has Water Advocate Kleyne’s Attention

Fresh Water Shortages Threaten Populations Everywhere. Sharon Kleyne Encourages New Water Technology & Education about Water Issues.

Did you know that more than 2 billion people worldwide go through every day of their lives drinking and using contaminated water? You would never do that, right? Well, international educator and researcher Sharon Kleyne wonders if that’s really true. As she points out, suppose you simply cannot get fresh water. Without water, you die. So, what would you really do? Kleyne believes you would opt for the contaminated water.

Of course, Kleyne, host of the nationally syndicated The Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water, Global Climate Change and Your Health on VoiceAmerica sponsored by Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®, finds this situation abhorrent. Kleyne and others believe it is terrible that in some countries, women walk four hours a day with huge clay jugs balanced on their heads in order to fetch and convey fresh water to their families and villages. “The global fresh water crisis we face,” said Kleyne, “is epic in its proportions.”

For more than two decades, Kleyne’s research and new water technology discoveries at the company she founded, Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®, have won her international laurels as the global expert on dehydration of the eyes and skin due to excessive evaporation of the body’s water vapor. “From the moment we leave our mother’s water-womb and are born,” Kleyne says, “we begin a process of evaporation that continues until death.” Kleyne teaches that the way to live and prolong a healthy life is to regularly supplement and replenish body water vapor lost to evaporation with fresh, pure water. Kleyne also urges people globally to commit to being more proactive about their health by learning all that they can about fresh water. Kleyne wants everyone to know how to get fresh water and how to protect fresh water. “It’s not impossible,” says Kleyne, “but it will require new water technology, a long-term commitment, even unto eternity, and some wise assistance,”

Kleyne calls on the United Nations and government leaders everywhere to commit to supporting and paying for new water infrastructure that will save the water that currently runs off to the oceans. New water infrastructure will also maintain clean water supplies and build up aquifers, some of which are in danger of going dry from overuse. “There’s no secret,” Kleyne says, “to maintaining excellent health. One must supplement eyes and skin on a daily basis to replenish the evaporating water vapor.”

Kleyne also hopes that people on earth will break the bad and potentially lethal habit of taking fresh, clean water for granted. “Just as the eyes and skin suffer from excess evaporation, so does earth’s atmosphere as well as fresh water supplies and outlets,” Kleyne says. At the moment, Kleyne reveals, several regions in Africa and some Southeast Asian locales are the places on earth that are most in need of fresh water. “I am committed to educating people around the world every day about the growing global water crisis and the health dangers associated with dehydration due to excess evaporation of the earth’s water vapor,” Kleyne says.

Kleyne is convinced that more education and water research will lead to new technology discoveries that will save billions of lives and the earth itself. “We will learn what we need to know to create a new, healthy Water Life Science® lifestyle,” Kleyne concludes.

Sharon Kleyne & Dr. Jerry Wiles Agree: Fresh Water is Endangered

Sharon Kleyne & Wiles Look at Fresh Water Issues. Water Advocate Sharon Kleyne Defends Earth’s Fresh Water.

North America Regional Director of International Orality Network

http://www.orality.net

Sharon Kleyne, America’s top water researcher and advocate, and North America Regional Director of International Orality Network, Dr. Jerry Wiles recently got together on Kleyne’s nationally syndicated radio program, The Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water, Global Climate Change and Your Health on Voice of America to discuss the global fresh water crisis that threatens living organisms of all species including water, soil, plants, humans, animals, and even the atmosphere’s water vapor that is depleted by excess evaporation.

As the longtime director and current President Emeritus of Living Water International, Dr. Wiles has participated in digging and maintaining 17,811 fresh water wells in impoverished and water-challenged countries. Dr. Wiles has also participated in dozens of studies of water and new technology, and he has traveled extensively throughout the world.

For more than two decades, Sharon Kleyne’s research and new water technology discoveries at the company she founded, Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®, have garnered international recognition for her as the global expert on dehydration of the eyes and skin due to excessive evaporation of the body’s water vapor. “From the moment we leave our mother’s water-womb and are born,” Kleyne said, “we begin a process of evaporation that continues until death. In order to sustain excellent health,” she went on, “one must supplement eyes and skin on a daily basis to replenish the evaporating water vapor.”

Sharon Kleyne sounded the alarm that people on this planet must stop taking fresh water for granted. “Just as the eyes and skin suffer from excess evaporation, so do fresh water supplies and outlets,” Kleyne said. Dr. Wiles agreed. We estimate,” said Dr. Wiles, “that 663 million people around the world have little or no access to clean water.” Dr. Wiles identified several regions in Africa and some Southeast Asian locales as the places on the planet that are most in need of fresh water.

Sharon Kleyne reminded her listeners that of course there is much more to creating a fresh water supply for those in need than digging wells and Dr. Wiles concurred. “We were lucky in our early efforts,” Dr. Wiles said, “because one of our members invented the LS 100. A portable drill rig we could take to remote places.” Kleyne quickly pointed out that once the drillers are at their location, drilling the well is only the first step. “That’s correct,” said Dr. Wiles. “A big part of our mission is education, but it is hands-on education, it is learning and teaching by doing. It’s not enough to pass out a bunch of handbooks and hope for the best.”

Dr. Wiles pointed out that Living Water International and International Orality Network believes in the importance of mentoring the people they help. “We’re always referring to WASH,” said Dr. Wiles. “It stands for Water—Access—Sanitation—Health.”

Sharon Kleyne applauded such effort. “I discovered long ago that one can accomplish very little without education,” said Kleyne. “I try to educate people around the world every day about the growing global water crisis, and the health dangers associated with dehydration due to excess evaporation of the earth’s water vapor. In doing so,” Kleyne said, “we learn what we need to know to create a new, healthy Water Life Science® lifestyle.” Kleyne encouraged listeners and other interested parties to visit http://www.biologicaqua.com for more information about this new water technology and new water lifestyle.

Southern Oregon Is West’s Most Drought Proof Fresh Water Region Say Hiking Guide Authors

Art Bernstein and Zach Urness, authors of “Hiking Southern Oregon,” Discuss the California Drought and High Cascades Aquifer with Water Advocate Sharon Kleyne

During the Western United States’ worst ever drought, while Southern California’s fresh water supply runs dangerously low, Southern Oregon’s water is proving resistant to drought and climate change. Southern Oregon’s rivers, despite the lowest mountain snow pack on record in 2014, remain high and fast even in late summer and early autumn.* That was the observation of journalist-hikers Art Bernstein and Zach Urness, authors of the new book “Hiking Southern Oregon,” during an interview with water advocate Sharon Kleyne.

The reason for Southern Oregon’s enviable position, according to Bernstein and Urness, is the High Cascades Aquifer that keeps rivers flowing even with meager snow pack and scarce rainfall. The aquifer is named for the High Cascades Mountains, stretching from far northern California to British Columbia. They reach their maximum extent in Southwest Oregon.

Bernstein and Urness were interviewed on the Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water radio show of October 20, 2014 (Sharon Kleyne Hour archive: http://www.voiceamerica.com/show/2207/the-sharon-kleyne-hour)

The syndicated Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water radio show, hosted by water advocate Sharon Kleyne, is heard on VoiceAmerica and Apple iTunes. The show is sponsored by Bio-Logic Aqua Research, a global research and technology center specializing in fresh water, the atmosphere and dehydration. Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® is the Research Center’s signature product for dry eyes. Kleyne is Bio-Logic Aqua’s Founder and Research Director.

Art Bernstein has written 18 books on hiking and natural history in Oregon and northern California, including two books of short stories. Bernstein has an MS in Forestry from the University of Michigan and has lived in Southern Oregon since 1970

Zach Urness, outdoors reporter for the Salem Statesman-Journal, is published statewide and widely known for his articles on hiking, kayaking, rock climbing, mountain biking and skiing. Urness previously wrote for the Grants Pass, Oregon, Daily Courier.

The High Cascades mountain range, according to Bernstein and Urness, is a string of young volcanoes beginning at California’s Mt. Lassen, running up the middle of Oregon and Washington and ending at British Columbia’s Mt. Garibaldi. Crater Lake, and Mounts Shasta, Hood, Rainier and St. Helens belong to the High Cascades.

The Western Cascades are a much older and more eroded volcanic range slightly to the west of but intermingled with the High Cascades. In southern Oregon, the High Cascades constitute nearly the entire Cascades region with occasional pockets of Western Cascades. Conversely, in northern Oregon and in Washington, the Western Cascades predominate, with occasional dots of High Cascades. The northern dots include Mounts Rainier, St. Helens and Hood. The High Cascades predominate to a lesser extend in Central Oregon and far Northern California.

Young volcanic material, say Bernstein and Urness, is highly porous and able to absorb a tremendous amount of water. The result is the massive High Cascades Aquifer. Because of the Aquifer, Southern Oregon’s rivers maintain their flow year round despite low precipitation and climate change. Thus, Northern California’s Shasta River, rising on Mt. Shasta, had plenty of water in 2014 while the nearby South Fork Sacramento, originating in the mostly granite Klamath Mountains, ended up waterless. The Rogue, Umpqua, Descutes and Santiam Rivers also originate in the High Cascades.

Young volcanic rock, Bernstein and Urness explain, is composed mostly of highly porous ash and soft “vesiculated” lava full of bubbles. Young volcanic areas are also riddled with lava tubes – where flowing molten lava hardened on the outside while lava continued to run on the inside, eventually leaving an empty tube. Young lava rock is also prone to an extreme fissuring

In contrast, the Western Cascades consist mostly of volcanic plugs, core conduits of volcanoes long since eroded away. The lava in volcanic plugs, because it solidified deep underground, is much harder than surface lava.

In California’s non-volcanic Klamath and Sierra Nevada Mountains, the predominant rock is mostly granitic, which water has difficulty penetrating. Thus, there is heavy runoff in California rivers in spring and early summer but they quickly dry up.

An outstanding location to observe the High Cascades Aquifer, say Bernstein and Urness, is the Boundary Spring Trail near Crater Lake National Park’s north boundary. Summer or winter, wet year or dry, the fresh water spring gushes from the rocks and immediately becomes the Rogue River. Thousand Springs, near Crater Lake’s western boundary, is also beautiful and educational.

Fresh Water Can Be Priced to Assure Availability while Remaining Affordable Reports Water Advocate Sharon Kleyne

Bio-Logic Aqua Research Chairman Says Water Companies Can Upgrade Facilities and Still Keep Water Affordable During Global Fresh Water Crisis

The price of home delivered fresh water is the biggest bargain available to consumers in the United States, according to water advocate and Bio-Logic Aqua Research Chairman Sharon Kleyne, However, Kleyne adds, fresh clean water is becoming increasingly expensive to locate, impound transport and process. During the global fresh water crisis, with the US experiencing increasing drought, a growing population, widespread water wasting and lagging technology, fresh water cannot continue to be sold at a loss. The inevitable price increase, says Kleyne, must provide for those who can’t pay but whom, like everyone else, require water to stay alive.

Kleyne will discuss the issue of fresh water pricing and fairness on her Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water Radio show of October, 27, 2014.

Kleyne hosts the syndicated Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water radio show, heard on VoiceAmerica and Apple iTunes. The show is sponsored by Bio-Logic Aqua Research, a global research and technology center specializing in fresh water, the atmosphere and dehydration. Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® is the Research Center’s signature product for dry eyes. Kleyne is Bio-Logic Aqua’s Founder and Research Director.

Two recent articles support Kleyne’s views about the global fresh water crisis. A New York Time article of October 14, 2014,* Noted that wasteful water use by Californians is way down and many homeowners are abandoning their lawns. The article notes that there is sufficient fresh water in the United States to supply everyone but the problem is getting the water to where it is needed, eliminating waste and acquiring investment to improve processing and recycling facilities.

Under the present pricing structure, says the article, there is little incentive to conserve and, in fact, large users are often charged less than smaller users.

*Porter, E, “The risks of cheap water,” New York Times, 10/14/14

http://www.nytimes.com/2014/10/15/business/economy/the-price-of-water-is-too-low.html?hp&action=click&pgtype=Homepage&version=HpSum&module=second-column-region&region=top-news&WT.nav=top-news&_r=2

A Bloomberg News article of October 15, 2014,suggests that technology and infrastructure investment in fresh water utilities is increasing but remains inadequate. The article notes that only one percent of total water consumption in the US is by low income individuals unable to afford a higher price. Were a profitable program in place, this group could easily be subsidized.

The article notes a trend by large industrial water users, such as brewers and soft drink manufacturers, to invest in water technology and utilities. While their investment alone can’t solve the problem, it can help. Their involvement can also raise public awareness and finance lobbying for a more effective water policy.

Farnall, C, “Time for a serious policy on water pricing,” Bloomberg Week, 10/15/14

http://www.businessweek.com/articles/2014-10-15/time-for-a-serious-policy-on-water-pricing

Fresh, clean Water in the US, Kleyne notes, is considerably less expensive than cable TV, electricity, gasoline and food. US water is also far less expensive, and with far better service, than fresh water inmost other countries.

Fresh water, Kleyne notes, is a necessity of life. Every function of the human body and every cell in the body require a constant water supply to function properly, avoid dehydration and sustain life. Water is essential for digestion, growing food and sanitation. Without the water vapor in the atmosphere, our bodies couldn’t absorb oxygen and would soon dry up and die. A large percentage of our daily water intake, according to Kleyne, comes through direct absorption from the atmosphere by skin, eyes and lungs.

As a solution to the fair water pricing problem, Kleyne advocates a three-tiered water pricing program: “Essential water” for household cooking, drinking and sanitation, “Agriculture and Industrial Water,” and “Luxury Water” for lawns, swimming pools, etc.

Kleyne also advocates total water recycling in which all water sold by a fresh water utility is eventually returned to the supplier, where it is recycled and resold. Total water recycling would reduce the amount of water removed for human consumption from the natural ecosystem. Allowing more water to naturally evaporate into the atmosphere and become part of the hydrologic cycle, could also impact human caused aspects of global drought and climate change.
