UN Needs To Do More About New Water Research Says Sharon Kleyne

Water Advocate Sharon Kleyne Says Water Crisis Threatens Life on Earth. Sharon Kleyne Asks Donald Trump & Hillary Clinton To Promote Their Plans for Water.

Earlier this month, the United Nations met to discuss, among other things, the global water crisis, It was appropriate that they do so because it was World Water Week (August 28th—September 2nd). They held discussions about water. Many delegates expressed their countries’ and the world’s need for advanced water research and serious solutions to the global water crisis. Water facts, water figures and water statistics were put forth. Spirited debates about water flooded the hall of the General Assembly. Officials talked about water in small groups and in intense one-on-one conversations. Water seemed to be a word on everyone’s lips, but in the end, not much happened. The UN did not dam all the lively water-talk and let loose a torrent of water ideas to address the global water crisis.

Millions noted that the UN’s thinking about water had sprung serious leaks and created no reservoir of water solutions. Chief among these aware observers was Water Life Science® advocate Sharon Kleyne, who for more than two decades has promoted international water awareness. Kleyne, devoted to researching earth’s water vapor evaporation and the body’s water vapor evaporation, founded a company, Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science® whose research center developed new technology and products to replenish the evaporating water vapor with a rare Trade Secret tissue culture grade water discovered in Oregon. Sharon Kleyne believes our water woes have everything to do with a lack of advanced water research, a global crisis all its own that began, according to Kleyne, in the latter half of the 19th century and became the status quo by the middle of the 20th century. With Dr. Gerald H. Pollack, an internationally acclaimed professor of bio-engineering, Kleyne has called on foundations and the federal government to reverse the severe cut-off of water funding that took place in the 1950’s. “That decision has proved to be disastrous,” said Pollack. “The natural fresh water and water vapor of the planet are evaporating faster than they can be replenished,” Pollack said.

“If this trend continues,” Kleyne added, “we will not be able to sustain life on earth.” Sharon Kleyne elaborated, explaining that the planet’s water vapor is being lost to evaporation caused by pollution, global warming and artificial interior environments featuring air conditioning and central heating.  

Sharon Kleyne warned that water crises like the current one in Flint, Michigan will become more common unless we reverse our general ignorance about our most important natural resource and our shameful lack of water research. “Water research must be our number one infrastructure priority,” Kleyne insisted. “The air we breathe will not keep us or anything else alive if we destroy the water vapor in that air. Remember that we are mostly water,” Kleyne continued. “The eye lens is 99 percent water; the brain is 80-85 percent water; the lungs and liver are 70-80 percent water; the blood is 50 percent water; even the bones are 20 percent water. We are fluid. Everything around us is made of water. Hope doesn’t keep us alive; the atmospheric water vapor keeps us alive and breathing. The surface of the eye and the rest of the body must be supplemented every day—even several times a day—to counteract evaporation of the water vapor,” said Kleyne. “That’s why I supplement the water vapor of my eyes and skin with Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® and Nature’s Mist® Face of the Water®.

Sharon Kleyne, host of The Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water radio program, and Dr. Pollack see promise in Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s proposed water plan. “The United Nations needs to do much more than they’ve done so far,” said Sharon Kleyne. “Hillary Clinton’s proposed water plan,” Kleyne continued, “would be an excellent model for the UN to consider.”

Clinton’s plan calls for a big push on habitat restoration, water conservation and reuse. Perhaps even more essential, according to Sharon Kleyne, is Clinton’s call for a new national Water Innovation Laboratory. Such an effort can turn the tide, but it will take a long time to recover from water disasters like the one in Flint and others worldwide. “Only comprehensive water education and new water research will prevent a Flint water disaster from happening somewhere else,” said Kleyne. “The United Nations must become a global leader in water research and the development of new international water technology. Water-talk is nice, but it’s not enough. Nothing else on earth is more important than water,” Kleyne concluded.

Rep. Jared Huffman of San Rafael, California, couldn’t agree more, calling Clinton’s plan “a very thoughtful framework. Rep. Huffman added that he especially liked the idea of a national water lab because water currently receives little research money. “She’s (Clinton) talking about creating a new national water innovation lab,” Huffman said, “like Livermore for energy. It’s a great idea.”

Water, Global Warming and International Boundaries

(Note: World Water Week, sponsored by the Stockholm International Water Institute (SIWI), is an annual global conference that takes place in Stockholm each August. It’s focus on the global water crisis, healthy water and sanitation, water and natural health, water diseases, worldwide drought, climate change and natural health is compatible with the mission of the Sharon Kleyne Hour. Flavia Loures is a specialist in International water law and policy for the World Wildlife Fund, which is vitally interested on the impact of the global water crisis on human and animal health and demographics.)

Ms. Loures lives in Washington DC and was interviewed from Stockholm, Sweden, where she was participating in World Water Week – 2010. Her topic was “Transboundary Water,” or water that crosses international borders (she was born in Brazil). Flavia has been attending World Water Week since 2006 and believes that it is creating global awareness and momentum.

There is an extensive body of international law regarding shared water between nations and the world could come together, if the countries involved were willing, to settle most regional water wars. In Stockholm, they tend to take an “internationalist” point of view whereas on the ground, people tend to be more fiercely nationalistic.
