Sharon Kleyne Asks Why Can’t We Collect More Rain

The World Has Experienced Climate Change Since the Beginning of Time Says Kleyne. Catching More Rain Would More Than Offset Global Warming Says Kleyne.

Water advocate and Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science® founder and director Sharon Kleyne has challenged world leaders and researchers to make water infrastructure their number one priority. Kleyne also insists that they discover and develop new water technology that will allow humanity to capture much more rainfall than it is currently doing. Kleyne believes that by doing so, coupled with the recent discoveries of untapped aquifers in Africa and California would effectively do a lot to lessen the impact of the global warming and dramatic climate change we have witnessed since the dawn of the industrial revolution.

Kleyne reminds people that the world and its watery atmosphere has always experienced climate change. “That’s nothing new,” said Kleyne. “Millions of years ago super volcanoes were polluting the atmosphere just like our automobile and industry carbon emissions do today.” This is a detail that watchdog organizations like NASA and the United Nations inconveniently overlook in their research and assessments that claim human activity accounts for the current global climate crisis. “What’s going on with the weather is natural,” said Kleyne. “It’s happened before and will happen again.”

Meanwhile, Kleyne sticks to her point that much relief could come our way if we redirected our focus onto collecting rain water and preserving and developing new aquifers and reservoirs. “The average person doesn’t take water seriously enough,” said Kleyne, “and world leaders and organizations like the UN have so far been reluctant to devote the necessary resources to education and new technology.” Without these resources, Kleyne believes that we will continue to waste vast quantities of fresh water as it runs off to the oceans.

And what happens as we lose more and more fresh water? According to Kleyne, illnesses increase on a global scale and cures become scarcer and scarcer as we treat symptoms rather than find and develop cures. Kleyne believes that we all must get more serious about health and water education. “We all need to be more proactive,” says Kleyne, “or we’ll be facing global epidemics and fresh water shortages like nothing we’ve ever seen before.”

How Do We Stop Losing Water To The Oceans Asks Sharon Kleyne

Where Is the New Water Technology That Will Prevent Water Running Away to the Oceans. Sharon Kleyne Rainwater Is Escaping Human Use at an Alarming Rate.

Sharon Kleyne, founder and director of Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science® is concerned about the process of fresh water running off to the oceans and she would like government leaders and scientists to commit to programs and new technology that will allow us to save this precious resource for human health and use. Kleyne, of course, is not arguing that oceans are bad! Quite the opposite is true. Oceans are giant receptacles of water that evaporates and replenishes the earth’s atmosphere. Water running into the oceans from rivers and as rain is a natural part of the process.

Yet, as the world contends with water shortages and a water crisis that negatively affects human health, Kleyne and other researchers are concerned that too much water run-off is creating a dangerous imbalance.

But just how much water are we talking about? According to the USGS Water Science School, only a third of the rainwater that falls over land runs off into streams and rivers and returns to the oceans. The other two-thirds evaporates or soaks into groundwater. Surface runoff can also be diverted by humans for their own uses. In fact, the most runoff occurs in heavily populated and industrial areas where roads and concrete and asphalt create relatively non-porous surfaces over which water rapidly travels. Where humans are most active, rainwater runoff will be at its highest.

Other factors contributing to runoff include type of precipitation (rain, snow, hale), rainfall amount, duration and intensity, temperature, wind and humidity. These are called meteorological factors. Physical factors affecting runoff include topography, elevation and the presence of lakes, ponds, reservoirs and streams that prevent rapid runoff.

What Kleyne and other water advocates would like to see is research and new technology that would make it feasible to capture much more of the rainwater that currently runs to the oceans so that it can be put to human use. Kleyne believes that will take a lot more water education for everyone and much more commitment from our local and national elected officials.
