Experts Say Earth Needs A Dynamic Global Water Plan

Water Researchers Sharon Kleyne, L. Dwayne Cecil & Professor Neil S. Grigg Call for Global Water Plan. Over-Evaporation at the Center of Earth’s Water Woes Say Experts.

Three water research and water education experts recently gathered on the nationally syndicated The Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water, Global Climate Change and Your Health on VoiceAmerica sponsored by Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® to discuss the world’s serious water crisis and call for a comprehensive global water plan to correct it.

“Water is the most valuable commodity on planet earth,” said show host Sharon Kleyne. “Without it, life, as humans know it, is impossible.” That’s why it is all the more disturbing that more and more people must try to live every day without adequate supplies of fresh water. Water, our most precious resource, is suffering a critical crisis. Millions of people lack access to fresh water and billions of gallons of fresh water are lost to unnecessary run-off and evaporation.

Kleyne, also the founder of Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®, said that “we are resisting making water the #1 priority of our planetary infrastructure.” Kleyne stressed that earth’s water vapor is essential to the human body and the air we breathe. “Without the water vapor,” Kleyne said, “humanity’s future is sand and dust.”

Dr. L. DeWayne Cecil, Ph.D. and Principle Scientist at Sustainable Earth Observation Systems, LLC, agreed. “The biggest problem,” Cecil said, “is that we do not have international, regional or local water policies and comprehensive water plans. I worked in the government sector as a researcher and scientist for thirty-one years,” Cecil continued, “and I never encountered sustained interest in a comprehensive water plan. In the same way, we have no international climate change plan, no international energy plan.”

Dr. Neil S. Grigg, Ph.D. and a professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, also agreed with Kleyne and Cecil. “Water,” he said, “is in high demand yet limited in quantity. It is easily polluted and people living in poverty can’t easily access it. There is global competition for water. All of these factors,” Grigg explained, “combine to create a kind of social and political gridlock.”

Grigg mentioned his current study of evaporation in plant life, saying his goal was to come up with water use plans supporting sustainability on a global scale. Cecil supported Grigg’s assertion that “evaporation is a big player in extreme climate events such as droughts, floods and monster storms.”

Kleyne’s own internationally respected water technology research and discoveries have led to her belief that the major breakthrough in the study of evaporation will come through the study of plants. Most importantly, Kleyne, Cecil and Grigg agree that everyone must understand that it is earth’s water vapor and body water vapor that make life possible. Kleyne said that people should do all they can to supplement their body’s water evaporation, remembering to drink at least 8 to 10 glasses of water each day. “One must slow down the evaporation process,” said Kleyne. “Live longer. Be healthier,” Kleyne added. “Many people don’t understand this key point: water is living energy.”

All three research scientists and educators called for scientists, researchers, politicians and educators to come together to create a global water plan that addresses the world’s water crisis. In doing so, 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.” All that’s at stake is life itself.
