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.”

Southern California Water Crisis A Grim Warning To Rest Of Country Says Sharon Kleyne

Water Advocate Kleyne Says Don’t Play Politics with Water. Kleyne & Orange County Water District Manager Call for Better Water Education.

Sharon Kleyne, founder of Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®, has earned her reputation as an international expert in the study of dehydration of the earth’s atmosphere and the body’s water vapor. She is also constantly teaching people about the world’s current water crisis and international hotspots.

One such hotspot is California, where Kleyne believes politics got in the way of common sense and greatly contributed to creating the brutal drought conditions that plagued the state for three-plus years. “The original Governor Brown (Edmund G. “Pat” Brown) oversaw the construction of the aqueducts that brought essential water to farmers throughout the state. But a few years ago, according to Kleyne, many of these aqueducts were closed in order to save an endangered fish. The fish were saved, but vast tracts of farmland withered and died. Kleyne believes that this constitutes malfeasance of the greatest kind. She hopes that sanity prevails once again and the aqueducts and canals are opened once more to the farmers and farmland that need the water most.

Though the killer drought continues to ravish parts of the state, some Californians are breathing sighs of relief. Sudden rainfall and melting of record snowpack have brought blessed relief to some parts of the Golden State, including Orange County. Mike Markus, General Manager of the Orange County Water District (www.ocwd.com ), is a California native who grew up in Orange County. He said that the influx of new water has replenished the county groundwater basin, which is the county’s largest source of drinking water. The basin—270 square miles in size—delivers approximately 75% of the water supply to 2.4 million residents in north and central Orange County. Markus emphasized that his district does a great job educating people about where their water comes from. Marcus is especially proud of one outreach program, the Children’s Water Education Festival, which is a highly successful two-day event attracting thousands of people to talks and interactive displays.

Water advocate 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®, also encourages people to become better educated about water and their own health. “Too many people are dismissive about our water problems. They say ‘oh, it’s only water’. Well, you might just as well say, ‘it’s only life’. Believe me,” said Kleyne, “we have run out of wiggle room on this issue. If the global water crisis gets much worse, we’ll have to contend with billions of people whose health will have suffered because they’re dehydrated. At the same time,” Kleyne added, “over-evaporation of earth’s water vapor will severely compromise the air we breathe.”

Kleyne praised Markus and his Orange County Water District for keeping drinking water safe for millions of people, for doing so much to expand education opportunities in water and developing new technology for smarter water use.

As an example of new water technology, Markus shared that the Orange County District has come to rely more and more on recycled water, specifically waste water that is, after an advanced filtration process, converted into distilled water. Orange County’s is the first facility to use reverse osmosis in this process. “People have a right to clean, healthy water,” Markus concluded. “We have the technology and we have the experience. Now we need the commitment from elected officials to invest in water and water education for everybody.”

NASA Warns That World’s Aquifers Are Drying Up

Water Advocate Sharon Kleyne Calls Attention to NASA Water Crisis Findings. Sharon Kleyne Says UN Must Do More Than It Is Doing About Water Crisis.

Sharon Kleyne, like water advocates everywhere, is happy to see NASA weigh in on the world’s water crisis with its advanced research and technology, but the actual findings are disturbing. “NASA’s findings,” said Kleyne, “underscore the need for more education about water and the process of water evaporation and for the United Nations do more about the world’s water crisis than just talk and spend grant money.”

According to NASA satellite data, https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/wonk/wp/2015/06/16/new-nasa-studies-show-how-the-world-is-running-out-of-water/?utm_term=.7120081fb78b twenty-one of the world’s 37 largest aquifers “have passed their sustainability tipping points, meaning more water was removed than replaced during the decade-long study period.” Unfortunately, researchers concluded that this is a global problem that appears to be getting worse, not better. In fact, 15 of the aquifers were categorized as critical. Reporting on the study, Todd C. Frankel wrote that “Scientists had long suspected that humans were taxing the world’s underground water supply, but the NASA data was the first detailed assessment to demonstrate that major aquifers were indeed struggling to keep pace with demands from agriculture, growing populations and industries such as mining.”

“The situation is quite critical,” said Jay Famiglietti, senior water scientist at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in California and principal investigator of the University of California Irvine-led studies. Aquifers supply 35% of the water used by humans and that percentage spikes in times of drought. For instance, during California’s drought, aquifer water use climbed to 60 percent. “The water table is dropping all over the world,” Famiglietti said. “There’s not an infinite supply of water.” Famiglietti went on to say that our problems with ground water are made worse by global warming. People who live in the mid-range latitudes pump more water out of aquifers to deal with dry conditions. Once that water is pumped from the ground, evaporates and gets recirculated to areas farther north and south.

Scientists also say that steps to reverse this situation may be too little, too late. They point to California where the Central Valley aquifer is the most troubled aquifer in the U.S. It’s being drained to irrigate farm fields. The state passed is first extensive groundwater regulations in 2014, but t could take two decades before the new law takes full effect. By then, the aquifer may be empty.

Such dire forecasts urge Kleyne, founder of Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®, and others to call on the UN to become much more proactive about water education and research. “The UN also needs to get into the fields and do something about all of the lost groundwater that is running off to the oceans,” said Kleyne. Kleyne knows that replenishing an aquifer is a slow process, sometimes taking thousands of years. “We have to start now,” said Kleyne, “or we will soon be dry.” Kleyne also calls for new, advanced water technology to make use of recently discovered, untapped aquifers in Africa and deep under California’s Central Valley.

Liver Expert Gaughran & Kleyne Sharon Tip For Longer Life

Sharon Kleyne & Brendan Gaughran Discuss Health Issues Due to World Water Crisis. Sharon Kleyne Welcomes Liver Expert Gaughran to Radio Show.

Brendan Gaughran, President, Liver Medic Mobile Communication http://www.livermedic.com

There are many things that one can do to be more proactive about personal health and one of them is to pay attention to your liver. Your liver, which is 75 to 85 percent water, is part of your digestive system. Its many tasks include detoxification, protein synthesis and the production of chemicals that are necessary to digest your food. That is why Brendan Gaughran, President of Liver Medic Mobile Communication was delighted to meet with Sharon Kleyne recently on her radio show, the nationally syndicated The Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water, Global Climate Change and Your Health on VoiceAmerica sponsored by Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®.

Gaughran has put in more than two decades working in healthcare, developing nutraceutical tools, medical devices and natural supplements to help people get well and not merely mask symptoms with an array of drugs. “The biggest problem in medicine today is all the seductive money in the pharmaceutical industry. Too many people are riding the money train,” said Gaughran.

“And there is nothing more important to health and life,” Kleyne added, “than water.”
Referring to the recent discovery of a brain-eating amoeba in the drinking water of two Louisiana districts and the ongoing problems with lead-contaminated water in Michigan, Kleyne criticized the United Nations and world elected officials who refuse to make water the number one infrastructure priority. “We don’t have enough fresh water on the surface of the planet,” said Kleyne “and we’re going to face dire consequences if we don’t address that.”

Gaughran, a research scientist trained in microbiology, explained that the liver “is a super important organ. It’s the major converter for energy,” Gaughran continued. “It detoxifies the body, maintains blood pressure (with the help of the kidneys) and regulates hormones, among other beneficial actions.” Gaughran described how the liver, which has no nerve endings, nevertheless signals areas of imbalance in the body by inducing pain.

Kleyne added that everyone should be asking this question on a daily basis: “are you drinking enough water?” Gaughran suggested that a person take his weight and divide by two, arriving at the number of ounces of water he should drink each day. Gaughran added that unlike the past when 76 percent of liver problems were alcohol-related, 75 percent of new liver issues today are related to pesticides and other toxins leeching into the water table. “Chemicals in agriculture and GMO production are causing terrific health hazards,” said Gaughran.

Gaughran believes that formulating products and helping people solve their health issues naturally is the wisest course to follow in health today. This includes adopting a healthy lifestyle diet, one that is largely free of salt and sugar. Gaughran recommended the new Fodnaps diet developed by researchers at Stanford University. Kleyne and Gaughran also urged listeners to breathe properly. This is often overlooked, but breathing properly is essential to better health. “Breathing properly changes the pH of your body for the better,” Gaughran concluded.

NASA/NOAA Climatologist Says Global Water Resources Disaster Can Be Averted

Retired NOAA/NASA Climatologist L. DeWayne Cecil, PhD, Discusses Global Water Politics on Sharon Kleyne Hour Radio Show

If management of Earth’s water resources continues on its present path, the results could be disastrous reports retired NOAA and NASA Climatologist L. DeWayne Cecil, PhD, The terrible effects of diminishing water resources and global drought, according to Dr, Cecil, are already seen in Yemen and Somalia. California, Nevada and Arizona may not be far behind, creating a grim world of chronic, widespread water scarcity. Fortunately, Dr. Cecil also believes that there may be reasons for optimism.

Dr. Cecil made his remarks on the Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water radio show, where he is a frequent guest. Dr. Cecil is currently employed by Global Science and Technology of Ashville, North Carolina

Sharon Kleyne, host of the globally syndicated Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water show, is Founder of Bio-Logic Aqua Research, a fresh water, atmospheric and health research and product development center. Natures Tears EyeMist is the Research Center’s global signature product for dry eyes. The show is broadcast on the VoiceAmerica Variety Channel, Health and Wellness Channel, and Apple iTunes.

The main causes of water shortages, Dr. Cecil believes, tend to be more political and economic than environmental. Political causes can include greedy or impoverished governments unwilling or unable to spend money on water infrastructure; unscrupulous leaders who use water as a weapon of control; and water shortages as justification to attack other countries. Poor water infrastructure is the most frequent economic cause. In the United States, water shortages may result from governments not willing to work together and from shortsightedness in planning for the future of water resources.

Dr. Cecil and Sharon Kleyne both emphasize that without water, life on Earth could not survive. Dr. Cecil noted that the resolution of human conflict regarding water is made more difficult because chronic physical dehydration from drinking too little water can cause an increase in stress, aggression and anger. Abundant water and good nutrition has the opposite effect.

Dr. Cecil cited that Salt Lake Valley in Utah as an area struggling with water resource allocation. Projections are that by 2035, the snow pack in the adjacent Wasatch Mountains will decrease by one-third while the valley population will double. Meanwhile, according to Cecil, annual drought in the United States, which used to be confined to the arid West (California, Nevada, Arizona, Utah, New Mexico and Texas), now includes Colorado, Georgia and Alabama.

Under the George W. Bush administration, Dr. Cecil noted, an attempt was made to discover ways to counteract the global water crisis through engineering – building more dams and pipelines. Barak Obama places a greater emphasis on conservation. Under his approach, if using a beneficial resource, such as a river, is discovered to be harmful to the environment, rather than seek ways to mitigate the harm, they would simply make it illegal to use the resource.

Such an approach is of little benefit to people in Somalia, for example, which lacks basic water, food, shelter, clothing, medical care and sanitation.

The places to start in solving the global water resources problem, according to Dr. Cecil and Sharon Kleyne, are: (1) Population control. (2) The use of technology to increase the amount of available fresh water on the globe. (3) Making fresh water a basic human right available to everyone at no cost.

The reason for Dr Cecil’s is that a few places in the world with chronic water shortages have solved their problem. The densely populated island nation of Singapore is the best example. Despite recent extend drought, Singapore has not cut back on its water allotments.

Dr. Cecil and Sharon Kleyne believe that if properly and innovatively managed, with people working together, there should be enough water for everyone. Despite the current drought in many parts of the globe, according to Cecil and Kleyne, humans on Earth n Earth have the ability and knowledge right now to avoid a global water disaster.

The question is, will the people in charge act in time or will they bicker and drag their heels until it’s too late?
