A critical step awaits our evolution...

Many books have been written about the importance of water for a healthy body and mind. More has been written about contaminants, ltration and puri cation. Everywhere, we can read of diminishing water resources and of water rationing. All this is evidence that we are becoming more aware of the signi cance of our relationship with water. Yet, so far, little emphasis has been placed on understanding water as a living essence—the foundation of life on Earth.

“Age of Water”


...an understanding of water as conscious.


This critical step awaits us in our evolution. When we learn to treat water as a conscious being, rather than as a commodity to be harvested, sold, and abused, we will begin our return to the natural order of things. Only then will we make the transition into what Charles Eisenstein refers to as the “Age of Water”.

Eisenstein, in his book, The Ascent of Humanity, identi es the Age of Water as an era during which we instinctively treat the Earth and everything on it as sacred. This long-awaited time is at our doorstep now. It is a time to take hands with Mother Nature and return to the garden we were born into. It is a time to discover the keys to creation (the same keys that will create sustainable solutions for our future). Entering the Age of Water, we will surely discover that returning the life force to water is synonymous with stepping into life in a whole new way.

article on the science of water

new science reveals New science reveals that organization, even more than ingredients is key to life. This revelation gives new signi cance to the discovery of water’s liquid crystalline geometry. Molecular organization in water establishes a superior medium for the transmission of signals and information. According to MaeWan Ho “Liquid crystalline water is involved in the relay and storage of information; in the ampli cation of biological signals; and in the transduction of a variety of forms of energy.” Evidence of molecular organization also establishes rm ground for accepting water as a living component of our world.

MJ Pangman discusses the significance of liquid crystalline water

Dancing with Water around the world. The authors’ different backgrounds (one in science, the other in the healing and intuitive arts) offer a unique perspective. The book combines existing science with wisdom available through the intuitive arts—validating, balancing, and expanding on the best science has to offer. The authors invite you to step in with them now, and immerse yourself in the Dance with Water.

MJ Pangman, M.S. MJ Pangman is an author and speaker in the eld of complementary medicine. Since the year 2000, ever since she observed its powerful e ects on her own body, MJ has focused her writing on the subject of structured water. Her book, Hexagonal Water – The Ultimate Solution, is a re ection years of research on the molecular structure of water documenting the emerging evidence in support of its biological signi cance.

Some of Melanie’s earliest childhood memories are of connecting with the Earth’s elements and to the natural systems that maintain balance on the planet. She remembers being at the ocean as a 3-year-old and of understanding the life force held there. Even at that age, she experienced a “knowing” that the ocean was the origin of life. Melanie has always lived close to a body of water. She has spent many hours “listening”—merging with water in a way similar to the way Viktor

During 2003-2004 MJ worked with the eminent, Korean scientist Dr. Mu Shik Jhon to make his book, The Water Puzzle and the Hexagonal Key, available in English. The book, published in 2004, outlines over 40 years of Dr. Jhon’s research on the structure of water.

MJ’s background in the natural sciences gives her an understanding of chemistry, biology, and quantum physics; her ability to explain the complex in simple terms makes her writing easy and enjoyable to read.

Schauberger described merging with water’s consciousness in the Austrian forest. To Melanie, water is a kindred spirit; it is our connection with Spirit and our pathway to higher consciousness.

Melanie uses her intuitive abilities as a practitioner in the healing arts. This has provided many opportunities for her to witness the interplay between the forces in nature and human biology. She can’t wait to have others join her in the “dance” she has always danced with water.

water rights The New “Water Barons”: Wall Street MegaBanks are Buying up the World’s Wate Water is a political commodity. Typically water resources are owned and managed by governments. There is strong public opposition to the idea that private companies might be able to own water and make a profit from selling it (indeed in the James Bond film ‘A Quantum of Solace’ the bad guy, Dominic Greene, plots to own and control Bolivia’s water supply).

Former President George H.W. Bush’s Family Bought 300,000 Acres on South America’s and World’s Largest Aquifer, Acuifero Guaraní

A disturbing trend in the water sector is accelerating worldwide. The new “water barons” — the Wall Street banks and elitist multibillionaires — are buying up water all over the world at unprecedented pace Familiar mega-banks and investing powerhouses such as Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan Chase, Citigroup, UBS, Deutsche Bank, Credit Suisse, Macquarie Bank, Barclays Bank, the Blackstone Group, Allianz, and HSBC Bank, among others, are consolidating their control over water. Wealthy tycoons such as T. Boone Pickens, former President George H.W. Bush and his family, Hong Kong’s Li Ka-shing, Philippines’ Manuel V. Pangilinan and other Filipino billionaires, and others are also buying thousands of acres of land with aquifers, lakes,

Don’t by bottled water

Nestlé in the US Nestlé, one of the largest food corporations in the world, is also in the water business, leasing or owning 50 spring sites throughout the US. However, in many places where Nestlé operates, they have unlawfully extracted water from aquifers,[17] engaged in pricegouging tactics, [18] and polarized c o m m u n i t i e s .[19] F o r e x a m p l e , i n Colorado, over a period of a few years, Nestlé spent a large amount of money negotiating a water deal with the threemember Board of Chaffee County Commissioners and with the Aurora City Council, while buying land in the areas near where the Arkansas River runs. Close to 80 percent of the county’s 17,000 residents opposed the deal, [20] mainly because environmentalists (citing Nestlé’s detrimental impact in communities where they already operate) raised alarms about the potentially devastating consequences for Aurora City’s watershed and nearby wetlands.[21] After a 7 to 4 vote of approval by the Aurora City Council and a unanimous agreement by the Chaffee County Commissioners, over the next decade Nestlé will extract 650 million gallons of Arkansas Valley water so that

every day they can load 25 trucks with 8,000 gallons of water, drive 120 miles to a bottling plant in Denver, and fill millions of plastic Arrowhead Springs water bottles to be sold in the western US. In addition to being targeted by locals who want control of their water sources back, Nestlé is also at the epicenter of the growing bottled water controversy. The company dominates nearly a third of the lucrative US bottled water market[ with seven domestically-produced subsidiary brands (including Arrowhead Springs, Calistoga and Poland Spring)—making Nestlé a key contributor to one of today’s most significant environmental threats. That is, US consumers purchase about 28 billion bottles of water every year, but recycle only about 23 percent of the plastic petroleum-based containers used for water or soda. The rest end up polluting roadsides, landfills and oceans, and leach toxins into ecosystems while taking about a millennium to degrade.

Nestle's Water division is enormous. Check out this partial brand list:


Vivendi and Suez in Mexico Water privatization now has a firm foothold in Mexico, thanks to President Vincente Fox’s PROMAGUA initiative, which uses a $250 million World Bank grant to promote privatization of the country’s water resources. This program, now operational in 27 of Mexico’s 30 states, encourages cities with populations of 100,000 or more to sign their water concessions over to corporations for contracts lasting between five and fifty years. This has allowed Vivendi and Suez, two major players in the water game, to partner with smaller companies to turn one-fifth of Mexico’s municipal water systems into profitmaking businesses. However, in the process of making massive amounts of money from Mexico’s formerly public utilities, these multinational corporations have drastically raised rates, cut service to customers who can’t pay their bills, weakened water quality, and skimped on making essential infrastructure improvements.[25] While these two companies are foreign-owned, they also have large operations in the US. Vivendi became North America’s largest water company in 1999 after purchasing US Filter (a leading manufacturer of commercial and residential water purification systems).[26] Suez, meanwhile, is the parent company of United Water, the second-

largest private operator of municipal water systems in the US—where it has established a reputation for environmental destructiveness. For example, Suez has been responsible for sewage overflows in Milwaukee, Wisc.; contaminating drinking water in Gloucester, Mass.; and dozens of discharge limit violations in Gary, Ind.[27] So if Suez, Vivendi or another private corporation tries to take control of your community’s municipal water system, be sure to join or organize an effort to keep this resource in public hands.

How You Can Help You can radically reduce your dietary water consumption by going vegan, because growing plant foods requires far less water than producing animal products. [35] You can also make a difference by not buying bottled water and boycotting companies like Nestlé and Coca-Cola, whose water privatization schemes hurt people and the environment http://www.foodispower.org/ More Stories Here http://www.foodispower.org/water-usageprivatization/

act Corporations are taking control of the world's water in three ways: (1) through “water mining” of the aquifers and vast sources of water that feed streams, and rivers; (2) through long-term leases or concessions allowing corporations to take over the delivery of water systems and the collection of revenues; (3) through “managing” municipal

The nuclear reactors involved in the 2011 crisis at Fukushima I in Japan are GE designs,[74] and the architectural designs were done by Ebasco,[75] formerly owned by GE. Concerns over the design and safety of these reactors were raised as early as 1972, but tsunami danger was not discussed at that time.[76] As of 2014, the same model nuclear power reactors designed by GE are operating in the US,[77] such as the controversial Pilgrim Nuclear Generating Station, in Plymouth, Massachusetts. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ General_Electric

“Thorium was the Alternate

energy solution

“It’s a safer, more abundant fuel that could’ve revolutionized nuclear power. The problem is, it has almost nothing in common with what we’re doing now.”

“Thorium is the younger sister to uranium, less volatile, slower to self-consume, and as many have contended without success, much better suited as a source of nuclear power than uranium. SuperFuel by award-winning science writer Richard Martin tells the Cinderella story of thorium in a fast paced, insider's account. This short, well written book is a must read for those interested in understanding thorium's past and its potential to be a clean, renewable energy source for the future.

President, Atomic Heritage Foundation


Energy Revolution in the Making According to the International Energy Agency, worldwide demand for energy will rise by nearly 40 percent by 2035—a gure that many analysts, citing booming economic growth in the nations of China, India, and Brazil, consider low. Meeting that demand with current energy technologies will result in the addition of many billions of tons of carbon into Earth’s atmosphere. Yet to build enough wind, solar, and other renewable energy projects to signi cantly reduce coal and oil use would require time and re- sources we simply do not have

the decision in the early 1970s to abandon R&D on thorium power, despite ample proof of its low cost, safety, and ef cacy Based on groundbreaking archival research and hundreds of hours of exclusive interviews, Martin’s game-changing new book—SuperFuel: Thorium, The Green Energy Source for the Future— provides a gripping untold story of the science, the personalities, and the political, military and economic forces that shaped American nuclear power policy and ultimately led to the energy crisis we face today

There is a solution—a form of nuclear power produced with thorium, a naturally-occurring element that is so safe you can hold it in your bare hand, that’s four times more abundant than uranium, and that’s so dense and highly ef cient, a ball bearing- sized amount could provide all the power an average person will consume in their lifetime. Furthermore, innovative liquid-fueled thorium reactors are 200 to 300 times more fuelef cient than standard reactors and so small and portable they can be mass-produced in factories. Thorium reactors will also solve the problems of nuclear waste and the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction: you can't make a bomb with thorium, and liquid-fueled thorium reactors can actually burn waste from existing, conventional reactors

The most important science and technology book of the year, SuperFuel also brings us word of the global thorium revival movement in progress, powered by a new generation of scientists, engineers, and entrepreneurs who have put their careers and their reputations on the line to battle the nuclear power establishment and bring thorium back on line

So why aren’t we using it now That is the puzzle that led one of America’s leading energy writers, Richard Martin, to conduct a three- year investigation into the secret history of one of the greatest technological missteps of the 20th century

Post Scrip Several countries, including waking giants India and China, have announced or con rmed plans to build thorium power reactors. The U.S. is not among them In the last year China has made clear its intention to become a major supplier of nuclear technology on the world market, focusing in part on liquid-fuel reactors using thorium. Those reactors are inherently safe, meaning that a meltdown or other out-of-control accident is physically impossible. Meanwhile, the United States, which pioneered the development of thorium reactors a half-century ago, continues to pursue the failed nuclear power SuperFuel: Thorium, the Green Energy Source for strategies of the 1970s.

a way forward for saving the oceans' health — and humanity's:

http://marinebio.org/oceans/ocean-dumping/

The Problems with Ocean Dumping Although policies on ocean dumping in the recent past took an "out of sight- out of mind" approach, it is now known that accumulation of waste in the ocean is detrimental to marine and human health. Another unwanted effect is eutrophication. A biological process where dissolved nutrients cause oxygen-depleting bacteria and plants to proliferate creating a hypoxic, or oxygen poor, environment that kills marine life. In addition to eutrophication, ocean dumping can destroy entire habitats and ecosystems when excess sediment builds up and toxins are released. Although ocean dumping is now managed to some degree, and dumping in critical habitats and at critical times is regulated, toxins are still spread by ocean currents. Alternatives to ocean dumping include recycling, producing less wasteful products, saving energy and changing the dangerous material into more benign waste According to the United Nations Group of Experts on the Scienti c Aspects of Marine Pollution , the amount of ocean dumping actually brings in less pollution than maritime transportation, atmospheric pollution, and land based pollution like run-off. However, when waste is dumped it is often close to the coast and very concentrated Waste dumped into the ocean is categorized into the black list, the gray list, and the white list. On the black list are organohalogen compounds, mercury compounds and pure mercury, cadmium compounds and pure cadmium, any type of plastic, crude oil and oil products, re ned petroleum and residue, highly radioactive waste, any material made for biological or chemical warfare The gray list includes water highly contaminated with arsenic, copper, lead, zinc, organosilicon compounds, any type of cyanide, ouride, pesticides, pesticide by-products, acids and bases, beryllium, chromium, nickel and nickel compounds, vanadium, scrap metal, containers, bulky wastes, lower level radioactive material and any material that will affect the ecosystem due to the amount in which it is dumped The white list includes all other materials not mentioned on the other two lists. The white list was developed to ensure that materials on this list are safe and will not be dumped on vulnerable areas such as coral reefs.

René Quinton was the first researcher to discern and to investigate the similarity between seawater and blood plasma composition.

Laboratoires Quinton provides two drinkable seawater nutritional products. One is a diluted “isotonic” marine plasma known to support restoring and balancing the Bioterrain and the other is an undiluted “hypertonic” marine plasma for optimal mineralization. Hundreds of thousands of healthminted individuals and health practitioners worldwide have discovered the benefits of regaining their lost marine inheritance.

Laboratoires Quinton harvests its marine plasma seawater from Atlantic Ocean plankton-rich blooms that are internationally protected, pristine and pure. These massive self-purifying zones are like huge biological factories that are capable of eliminating natural and manmade toxins using complex biological processes. Plankton blooms are not only guardians of the ocean’s purity but they are also responsible for generating more than half the oxygen we breathe. Laboratoires Quinton seawater is harvested from the optimal bioactive depth of 100 ft. then refrigerated to 4 degrees Celsius during transportation to the processing facility. This extreme care preserves the bioactive qualities of the minerals, trace elements and fragile marine cofactors (any heating diminishes critical properties).

The raw seawater undergoes an intensive monthlong quality control inspection and analysis. If approved, it is immediately cold-microfiltered and sealed in its special glass ampoules to protect and assure the organic qualities of marine plasma.

Since 1897, authentic marine plasma continues to be harvested, processed and packaged by Laboratoires Quinton in Alicante, Spain. The modern, advanced facility uses the original protocols specified by its founder, Rene Quinton.

CURRENTS o f c h a n g e Water in the form of oceans, clouds, and atmospheric vapor is the major controller of long-term climate regimes and short-term weather on Earth.

In addi on, our planet uses water in producing, modifying, and dissolving the vast array of features that we recognize as the planet’s surface. During this period of changing global climate, the availability and quality of water itself has become a concern because it serves as a requisite component and mediator of our natural and anthropogenic life support systems. A high priority of our postmodern culture is to collect, conserve or somehow create more freshwater to meet the everincreasing demands. A challenge that we face is doing so in a manner that does not sacri ce sustainability for expedience. Many of our current water issues include the unforeseen consequences of just such sacri ces.

A range of technologies, management strategies, and cultural or perceptual shi s has been proposed to address the water crises. As part of a recent technology innova on program, the U. S. Environmental Protec on Agency is ac vely solici ng and suppor ng a variety of innova ons for water resources. Their program is not limited to developing technologies, but also includes promo ng cultural shi s or formula ng management strategies that could assist in solving the issues related to freshwater. The use of cultural tradi ons in evalua ng new water technologies and strategies is exempli ed by decision-making algorithms, based on indigenous views of human and environmental factors, that ensure water

is in harmony with its watershed prior to use for other purposes. Restoring ancient and e cient water systems can be preferable to building new ones, in terms of both ef ciency and ef cacy. This brief review ar cle presents some solu ons for water that are described in more detail by other authors in the issue. The primary focus is on novel or innova ve solu ons that are poten ally sustainable, energye cient, a ordable, and expected to generate minimal adverse e ects. The selected examples are categorized as technological or management/cultural and are contrasted with proposed solu ons that are less likely to sa sfy the aforemen oned criteria.


Switching from large, energy-ine cient centralized water systems (many of which have deteriorated as a result of neglected infrastructure) to smaller-scale systems has been proposed as an alterna ve to repairing or reconstruc ng centralized systems. Small-scale systems require energy-e cient designs, o en using state-of-the-art materials and demanding a more “hands-on” role from individual water users (i.e., for oversight and maintenance) than do large centralized systems.

Water from Air Water can be collected from the air using passive devices constructed aboveground from natural materials (e.g., bamboo) and fabrics designed to enhance the condensa on of atmospheric water or fog. Condensa on collectors or wells can also be constructed underground to u lize the cooler temperature of soil, compared to that of the air, in producing condensate that is used directly to irrigate plant roots or brought to the ground surface to provide water for other purposes. A more expensive technique to collect water from air (although more energy ef cient than conventional electrical systems) u lizes wind power to operate a combined humidity condenser and water treatment unit.

Prerequisites for rainwater harvesting include observing and emulating water lows in the localized catchments, and the technique is often used in combination with an agricultural technique known as permaculture. Permaculturists mimic natural patterns and processes in a watershed to create sustainable designs by using the outputs (wastes) from one compartment as the inputs (resources) to others.

Low-Tech Water Treatment Inventors have developed a so-called “drinkable book” containing pages that are printed on lter paper coated with silver nanopar cles capable of destroying bacterial pathogens and providing clean water for a month. Instruc ons for proper sanita on and hygiene are printed on the pages, which are then placed in a specially designed lter box prior to introducing the contaminated water.

Watersheds or groundwater basins have proven to be the most reliable management units for devising sustainable strategies because they are de ned by hydrological, rather than by poli cal, boundaries.

So ware & Sensors Various so ware tools have been developed over the last decade to increase people’s awareness of water use pa erns, to assess the nancial and security implica ons of water for corpora ons, and to provide data for water resource agencies. Management has also bene ted from advanced monitoring techniques that u lize remote sensors and satellite imagery to rapidly collect data on cri cal parameters, permi ng changes in water quality and quan ty to be assessed on a realme basis. Whether on smartphones or satellites, more sophis cated sensors and so ware may be a key to informing us more quickly about the changing local hydroscape.

Footprints & Exchanges Perhaps the conceptual tools that have most in uenced water management during the last two decades are water footprints and virtual water. Water footprints can be calculated for individuals, na ons and products to evaluate both direct and indirect uses of water and to iden fy the types of water involved (e.g., green for precipita on, blue for surface and ground waters, and grey for water required to dilute pollutants). Surprisingly, about 90% of a person’s water footprint is devoted to food, so that dietary changes and a reduc on in food waste are o en the most e ec ve ways to conserve water. Virtual water is an es mate of the total water required to manufacture products or provide services and is now rou nely calculated as a means to track the exchange (import and export) of global water resources among trading partners.

Management/Cultural


A Di erent Percep on Beyond the implementa on of technological breakthroughs and management schemes are the changes that humans must make in their percep on of water as an integral component and mediator of almost every structure and process on this planet. The ancient roots of this percep on led to a realiza on that water is much more than just a commodity or resource and that its behavior in the natural world actually shows us the most successful means of managing it. The prac ce of emula ng water’s natural processes and structures was noted in a previous issue as hydromimicry, which is less likely to spawn technologies or strategies with unan cipated impacts or unsustainable prac ces than are those that force water to adapt to our mandates.

Relevant Educa on Educa ng children on the subject of water has tradi onally been performed mostly on a representa onal basis (from books and tradi onal views of water as a natural resource and nancial commodity), where the students have very li le or no opportunity to personally interact with water and to “know it” experien ally, as well as intellectually. An over dependence on representa onal learning necessarily leads to the collec ve acceptance of percep ons that o en lack diversity and, perhaps, any real resonance with children’s experience or intui on of water that are developed early in life. At a me when crea vity and intellect are essen al to developing novel solu ons, relying solely on the la er may not be the best tac c.

In 2010, the United Na ons General Assembly voted to adopt a declara on that water for drinking and sanita on is a human right. Although it was a strong humanitarian statement, it is unlikely to alter the legal, poli cal, sociological or nancial hurdles that stand in the way of its becoming a reality. Moreover, the private and public agencies that could grant this “right” do not

possess absolute control over water or the hydrologic processes that a ect its availability. Throughout most of human history, water has been considered a gi from nature to be appreciated, rather than a right from ins tu ons to be demanded. As such, this declara on re ects as much about our personal disconnect to water as it does about a belief that everyone is en tled to it.

Resource Security Water has been recognized as a na onal security issue in the U.S. and other na ons because of its poten al vulnerability to terrorism (e.g., via a acks on infrastructure) and its lack of availability during crises (e.g., following natural disasters). This represents a rela vely new way of perceiving water by industry and government. Water’s rela onship to security also stems from its essen al roles in producing food and energy, preserving human and ecosystem health, limi ng con icts between neighboring states, managing emergency situa ons, and stabilizing nancial markets.


Consumer Choices Although rarely listed under the heading of water conserva on, prac ces such as reducing our electricity and gasoline bills, ea ng more locally grown and organic foods, switching to a diet that includes less meat, building with recycled materials, and using fewer paper products all contribute to the quan ty and quality of water available to us. Consumers o en fail to realize that almost every product and service they consume requires “hidden” water, and choosing water-e cient ones does impact the availability and condi on of both local and global water resources.

every product and service consumed requires “hidden” water

eat local eat less Meat “Meat” production requires differing amounts of water depending on the species of animal being “processed.” For instance, pig production consumes the most water of any livestock sector because many factory farms rely on “flushing systems”—basically, the pigs live on slatted floors through which their waste drops into water troughs underneath that are periodically drained, conveying

questionable solutions Conven onal seawater desalina on, wastewater recycling, geoengineering, and transcon nental water importa on are a few of the solu ons that have been proposed to address the shortage of available freshwater. While useful for a limited meframe or in certain loca ons, these technologies have drawbacks related to energy requirements, environmental e ects and sustainability.

Geoengineering Many of largest contributors to atmospheric carbon dioxide are recommending the “sequestering” of carbon in the oceans or underground in saline aquifers. The former can have devasta ng e ects on ocean chemistry and biodiversity, whereas the la er can pollute potable groundwater aquifers. Technologies such as cloud seeding have long been hyped as a poten al means of increasing local rainfall and, although poten al side e ects are o en minimal, their reliability is s ll in ques on. Fer lizing the oceans with soluble iron and crea ng tropical tree planta ons have been proposed to limit the rise in atmospheric carbon dioxide levels, but their e ects on soil produc vity, ecosystem stability and cri cal water quality parameters are unknown.

The reuse of wastewater can produce potable water, although treatment to drinking water standards is both energy- and water-intensive. Constructed wetlands, or living machines (wetland-like systems), and various types of treatment lagoons that u lize aqua c plants or micro algae to remove pollutants from wastewater streams are signi cantly more e cient than are conven onal treatment facili es. While wetlands cannot produce potable water, they can produce water suitable for irriga on, cooling, and other household purposes. Water reuse and conven onal seawater desalina on may eventually become expensive

necessi es for providing potable water; however, exploring more energy-e cient alterna ves that produce fewer wastes may be prudent in the interim.

Water-Dependent Fuels Conven onal energy sources (e.g., fossil fuels, nuclear, hydroelectric) are major users and/or polluters of water, but a number of supposedly “green” energy sources are nearly as water ine cient. Hydrogen gas is o en touted as a subs tute fuel, but most hydrogen gas is produced by reac ng steam with natural gas, a process that is both water consump ve and pollu ng. Bioethanol is even more water unfriendly as a result of its dependence on cul va ng starchy plants that have the same irriga on demands as food crops and that pollute waters with pes cides, fer lizers and processing wastes. Moreover, the global produc on of bioethanol has been linked to regional food shortages. Alterna vely, the combined ac ons aqua c algae and bacteria can produce hydrogen gas in a complex process that generates a renewable fuel.


A common response to drought is moving water from where it is to where it is not. Much of the U.S. Southwest was developed (or overdeveloped) using this tac c, and now the hunt is on for water from more distant sources. Beyond the enormous energy demands of transpor ng water through pipelines or canals and the staggering costs of building the required infrastructure, impor ng en re water supplies is neither sustainable nor secure. Similarly energy ine cient is the proposed shipping of bulk water (via large tankers) between con nents. There are even ques ons as to whether shipping a more limited volume of bo led drinking water makes sense.

The restoration of a pre-Inca water technology in the Andes Mountains may serve as a means of addressing the drought that has a ected the city of Lima, Peru. Originally built between AD 500 and 1000, the ancient stone canals captured water from rivers and surface runo

Graphene Nanotechnology Makes Desalination 100 Times More Efficient Engineers at Lockheed-Martin recently developed and patented a molecular ltration membrane called Perforene which can desalinate seawater using only 1/100th the energy of the best existing desalination systems.
 Perforene is made from graphene, the exciting new nanomaterial which comes in the form of one-atom thick sheets of carbon atoms. Like an overzealous nanotechnology, graphene seems to photobomb itself in as the solution to numerous environmental problems such as, storing electricity, removing air pollution, advanced photovoltaics, high strength materials and now desalinating water Under a microscope, this material looks like a mesh net with holes as small as one hundred nanometer. These holes are small enough to block the chlorine and sodium ions in salt water but large enough to allow pure water molecules to pass through The material was invented by Lockheed engineer. In an interview with Reuters, Stetson said that this new material is 1000 times stronger than steel and 500 times thinner than the best existing reverse osmosis desalination lter He said, “The energy that’s required and the pressure that’s required to lter salt is approximately 100 times less.

Why desalinating water is not energy ef cient Desalination typically uses at least 3 kilowatt-hours per cubic meter. To put this into familiar terms, lling

a 2 liter bottle with desalinated water consumes the same amount of energy as running a 15-watt compact uorescent light for 24 minutes The energy required to purify two liters of freshwater would only run the same light for less than two minutes This may not seem like a lot of energy, but it adds up According to information published by the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA), the world’s desalination plants consume approximately 360 million kilowatt-hours each day. Because of their gluttonous energy consumption, desalination plants are nearly always collocated with electrical power generating stations Nuclear power is often used. But in a bit of political doublespeak, the desalination plants are said to generate electricity. Electricity “generated” by existing desalination plants is only the excess energy produced by the collocated power plant that hasn’t been consumed If unconsumed energy is the same things as producing energy, Lockheed-Martin’s desalination technology might become one of the most important sources of energy and water in the Middle East. The company is seeking commercialization partners and hopes begin manufacturing this amazing new material in 2015 Source


Algae could both provide biofuel and clean up

http://www.gizmag.com

Algae grows in pools of wastewater in Houston, Texas (Photo: Rice University) Algae may indeed be a potential source of biofuel, but it can also nd use in things like nutritional supplements and cosmetics. When it's grown commercially, its growth is usually aided with chemical fertilizers. The cost of those chemicals cuts into the pro ts, however, plus the fertilizers are also needed for more traditional crops. That's why scientists from Houston's Rice University are looking into growing algae in municipal wastewater – the water would already contain its own free fertilizer, plus the algae would help clean it up Led by researchers Meenakshi Bhattacharjee and Evan Siemann, the Rice team experimented with growing various strains of oil-rich algae in open-air pools containing water from one of Houston's wastewater treatment plants. Although the solids had already been ltered from the water, it still contained the nitrogen and phosphorous that the algae needed to feed upon After 14 weeks, it was found that not only did the algae thrive, but that it consumed over 90 percent of the nitrates and 50 percent of the phosphorous in the water. If too much of these nutrients remain in wastewater after it's released back into the environment, it can cause major environmental problems such as algae blooms In a previous study, researchers in Kansas likewise attempted to grow algae in wastewater. In that case, the algae consumed much less of the phosphorous, which might have been due to the fact that the weather was cooler. That could mean that the technology is better suited to regions with warm climates, such as Texas The scientists are now examining other variables that might affect the process, along with evaluating the cost-effectiveness of the system.

Huge Reserves of Freshwater Lie Beneath the Ocean Floo

The discovery was made by researchers at the National Centre for Groundwater Research and Training (NCGRT) and the School of the Environment at Flinders University. The scientists estimate there is around half a million cubic kilometers of what they describe as “low salinity” water, which means it could be processed into fresh, potable water economically The reserves formed when ocean levels were lower and rainwater made its way into the ground in land areas that were not covered until the ice caps melted 20,000 years ago, causing sea levels to rise

"The volume of this water resource is a hundred times greater than the amount we’ve extracted from the Earth’s sub-surface in the past century since 1900," says study lead author Dr. Vincent Post. "Our research shows that fresh and brackish aquifers below the seabed are actually quite a common phenomenon.

To access these non-renewable water reserves, it would be necessary to drill into the seabed from man-made, offshore platforms or from the mainland or nearby islands. Despite the high costs involved, the water would require less energy to desalinate than it does to desalinate sea water, although a careful assessment of the economics, sustainability and environmental impact of the exploration of such water reserves would be necessary Post added that humanity needs to be careful not to contaminate these aquifers while drilling for oil or disposing of carbon dioxide as suggested in some carbon capture and storage proposals Water scarcity is set to be one of the biggest environmental challenges of the 21st century, with global warming, deforestation, overpopulation, industrial demand, irrigation and several other factors taking a huge toll on the planet’s water reserves. According to UN-Water, in 2011 some 768 million people lacked access to suitable sources of drinking water. Seawater desalination plants are becoming a more widely-used source of drinkable water, but the process is generally costly and extremely energy-intensive The team's research is described in a paper published in the December 5th issue of Nature Source: Flinders University

Scientists in Australia have reported the discovery of huge freshwater reserves preserved in aquifers under the world's oceans. The water has remained shielded from seawater thanks to the accumulation of a protective layer of sediment and clay. And it’s not a local phenomenon. Such reserves are to be found under continental shelves off Australia, China, North America and South Africa


Primary Water 
 Water for a Thirsty World Where does water come from, what a simple question to consider, but do you really know the answer? “Primary water, the original source of our oceans, is still being created by geological forces. That water, usually in a potable form, comes to the Earth's surface in thousands of places, some well known like Jericho and Bahrain where it has provided drinking water for thousands of people for thousands of years. It pours into deep mines all over the world. The hallmark of new, or primary, water springs and wells is that they provide water at constant temperature and ow. But this worldwide source of “new water” has been ignored by geologists and laymen in most countries including the United States. They were taught that all potable water comes from the “hydrological cycle” which merely recycles water already on the surface.”

Primary Water: Earth's Untapped Gift

“Primary water is new water formed by chemical reactions deep in the Earth. This water, driven by massive pressure, works its way toward the surface through faults and ssures in normally impervious crystalline rock. While you may have to drill deeper for Primary Water, it is generally not subject to pollution or variations in rainfall, and usually sustains production for decades. --- Michael H. Salzman, author of the deeply compelling book,”New Water For A Thirsty World”, published in 1960.

Riess ... mainly looked for "restricted faults" or breaks in the earth's crust which rarely reach to the earth's surface. Where these vertical pipes or fissures or fumaroles did reach the surface, great natural springs of primary water occurred. "You take the creek up in Kings Canyon National Park," he elaborated, "why, it flows at several thousand gallons a minute and it is above all drainage in any direction. Moose Lake, in the same area, also has no visible watershed and that, too, flows at several thousand gallons a minute. Even in dry summer months on mount WhitnOPEN READERey at about 13,000 feet there is a sheer granite wall with a protrusion on its face that cups a small lake. If that lake water is rain or snow, then all we have to do is hang tanks on the Empire State Building or the Eiffel Tower and expect a constant flow of water." - Author: Christopher Bird

Earth Generated Water: ongoing within the Earth Article Here: Author: Christopher Bird


In the early 50's, a geo-chemist, metallurgist, mining engineer and dowser named Stephan Riess theorized that a vast supply of water ran under the Mojave desert large enough to supply the needs of all the people in southern California. Riess's conclusions were corroborated by a study done by civil engineers. Their findings revealed that there was as Riess called it, primary water travelling in the deep rock fault system under the desert that had nothing in common with the water in the alluvium sedimentary aquifers. This rock fissure water was also so pure that chlorination was unnecessary, and it ran like deep, life-giving veins in the earth. In fact, Riess contended that most underground water did not originate via precipitation that had gradually percolated through the soil as p r e v i o u s l y t h o u g h t . Wa t e r i s incompressible, so once it has reached a depth where the density of the soil becomes equal to its own, it simply cannot "seep" downward any further. He felt instead that the largest quantities of water underground were formed from the elements within the earth, and constituted primary water that had never seen the surface of the earth before. Freshwater springs that spew forth large volumes of water off the coast of islands are good examples.

As proof of his theory, Riess drilled a number of deep, successful wells, and turned barren, California desert land into fertile, productive acreage. A southern California magazine, Fortnight, ran a 2-part article in 1953, and diagnosed why such a discovery was ignored by local politicians. There was simply too much money to be made in the vast water transport systems planned that California's financial and political leadership had to ignore Riess's discovery. Riess asked, "Why should huge sums of money be spent to build pipe lines over great distances, when Mother Nature has created her own pipe lines? It is certainly far more economical to pump water vertically up 450 feet than to pump and transport it laterally for 450 miles!" By 1958, Riess's work was noticed by the Israeli government and they invited him to find water for their new city of Eliat on the Red Sea's Gulf of Aquaba. Riess met with the then Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion and his advisors who urged him to go ahead with his search for water as soon as possible. On May 29, 1959, the Jerusalem Post announced that the Riess-located well was sufficient enough to supply a city of more than 100,000 people including industry and outlying villages!

Several active Riess wells today: Escondido, California Riess and his successor, Morad Eghbal, each located several wells in the late 1970's on private property both for the personal use of the owner as well as for the commercial water development for surrounding towns that needed to purchase water. These well are in operation and producing today.

Cottonwood, Idaho The city of Cottonwood was running out of water and the traditional, professional geologists the city had hired to find water declared that there was no hope of success. The city then turned to Stephan Riess, Riess immediately located two wells for them. The first generated more than 250 gallons per minute. The second, produced over 500 gallons pre minute. At the city's request, Riess returned to locate a third well for Cottonwood's future expansion. This well produced over 550 gallons per minute. All three wells continue to supply the city of Cottonwood today.

The Reich

cloudbuster method The Reich cloudbuster method has no chemicals, no active EM or anything else being pumped into the atmosphere, but rather utilizes a property of "living water" as Schauberger might say, as it exists in liquid form at the ground, to stimulate changes in gaseous water in the atmosphere towards raindrops and coalescence. Also circulation motions react to these changes once they are initiated, creating a spreading "chain reaction" of sorts that propagates outwards to affect larger regions of drought or dryland In the actual working of these instruments, there is no 'squeezing' of water out of the atmosphere as per cloudseeding, and hence no "dry shadow" downwind.  The successful operation leads to a restoration of the natural cycles and processes of rain-dry-rain-dry pulsation, after which we retire home.  Like using a de brillator to get the heart going again, after something has led to a stoppage or blockage.  Except there's no lightning bolts coming off the cloudbuster.  It is much more gentle and subtle, more like a gentle

massage during midwifery, as compared to the hard obstetrics of the cloudseeders It is not anything used over long periods, only short periods, like a form of atmospheric acupuncture. In fact, many of the concepts used in acupuncture, such as removing of energy blockages, are similarly developed in Reich's original theory of its operation.  However, he didn't come to it by eastern metaphysics, but rather on the line of early vitalism and Freudian libido theory, and persisting ideas on the cosmic ether of space.  Freud had the larger in uence upon Reich, whose work indicated "libido" was a speci c biological-sexual-emotional energy, measurable bioelectrically, and later objecti ed as life energy, or orgone energy His ndings on the atmospheric energy are the most amazing of all his work, but I con rmed it years back at University of Kansas, and in many other eld trials.  The data is pretty good, and I'm now trying to convince the water bureaucrats in California to sponsor a project against their water crisis.

the energy-water connection Energy production requires a reliable, abundant, and predictable source of water, a resource that is already in short supply throughout much of the U.S.

The electricity industry is second only to agriculture as the largest user of water in the United States. Electricity production from fossil fuels and and the world.

nuclear energy requires 190,000 million gallons of water per day, accounting for 39% of all freshwater withdrawals in the nation, with 71% of that going to fossil-fuel electricity generation alone. Coal, the most abundant fossil fuel, currently accounts for

52% of U.S. electricity generation, and each kWh generated from coal requires withdrawal of 25 gallons of water. That means U.S. citizens may indirectly depend upon as much water turning on the lights and running appliances as they directly use taking showers and watering lawns. According to the 2001 National Energy Policy, our growing population and economy will require 393,000 MW of new generating capacity (or 1,300 to 1,900 new power plants-more than one built each week) by the year 2020, putting further strain on the nation’s water resources.

The LucidPipeTM Power System from Lucid Energy is a new, water-to-wire energy recovery solution that enables water-intensive industrial, municipal and agricultural facilities to produce clean, reliable, lowcost electricity from their gravity-fed water pipelines and ef uent streams. LucidPipe utilizes a patented, in-pipe turbine that captures energy from fastmoving water inside of large diameter, gravity-fed pipelines, with no impact on ow or operation. Depending on head pressure, ow and pipe diameter, each LucidPipe turbine produces up to 100 kilowatts of renewable, zero- emissions electricity by extracting excess head pressure. To maximize power generation, multiple LucidPipe units can be rapidly and easily installed into a single pipeline for a system that can produce more than a megawatt of electricity HOW IT WORK LucidPipe utilizes a unique, lift-based, vertical axis spherical turbine that ts inside of large diameter (24”-96”) water pipes. Water ows through the hydrodynamic turbine, generating power as the turbine spins. The hydrodynamic turbine has been carefully designed and lab-tested to maximize ef ciency and power generation without interrupting the ow of water. As velocities increase, power production increases. Due to the lift-based design of LucidPipe, the system generates power across a very wide range of ow conditions, volumes and velocities. LucidPipe extracts very little head pressure per turbine, just 1–6 PSI (1-4 meters). This allows the modular LucidPipe system to be placed

TURBINE BRIDGE

Turbine bridge Moving facade creates dynamic, living architecture between the historic area. Curved shape of the blades makes that water flows back to the river after emersion. Turbine bridge is not only link between the two sides of the river. The idea was to create a multifunctional space on the Amstel River. For this purpose, its shape is designed as a giant ship's hull floating on the river. Main level of the bridge is a public space with pedestrian and bicycle path. There is also cafe, bicycle repair and administration office. On the roofs of this functions there are leisure terraces with playground. Plant rooms, turbine engines and storage are located underneath the deck. The characteristic shape of the bridge, referring to hourglass, is formed by the flow for a boat in the middle of the Amstel canal. In the centre of the bridge there is a meeting point for different decks and paths. A sustainable multi-functional watermill may reflect the ecological lifestyle of Amsterdam city.

Listening to the Buddha: how greed, ill-will and delusion are poisoning our institutions

As a Buddhist who’s passionate about social and political engagement, I’m fascinated by the contemporary relevance of Buddhist teaching. The Buddha didn’t say much about evil, but he often spoke about the three roots of evil or “three poisons” of greed, ill will, and delusion. When what we do is motivated by these poisons, the inevitable result is dukkha: “suffering,” but not just suffering at the level of each individual. All institutions are the mirror image of the motivations that make them work. So when politics and economics are based on the worst aspects of human nature, the inevitable result are societies riddled with inequality and violence.

By Zen scholar David Loy Art by Igor Morski


a radical transformation is called

Art by Igor Morski


The Buddhist emphasis on motivation sheds new light on the key questions of our time: the destruction of the environment, the exploitation of human beings, and the use of deception to quell dissent and debate. If institutionalized greed, ill will and delusion lie at the root of these problems, a radical transformation is called for. Nothing less will do. Our present economic system institutionalizes greed; our addiction to militarism institutionalizes ill will; and the corporate media institutionalize delusion. If greed is defined as “never having enough,” then that also applies collectively: corporations are never large enough or profitable enough, their share value is never high enough, and our GNP is never big enough. In fact, we cannot imagine what “big enough” might be. Built into these systems is the belief that they must keep growing, or else they will collapse. But why is more always better if it can never be enough? Who is responsible for this collective fixation on growth? All of us participate in one way or another, as employees, consumers, investors, and pensioners. The problem is that we rarely take personal responsibility for results that are collective: any awareness of what is happening tends to be diffused in the impersonal anonymity of the broader economic process. Consider the stock market, high temple of the economic system. On one side are many millions of investors, mostly anonymous and unconcerned about the details of the companies in which they invest, except for their profitability and share price. If they invest in mutual funds, investors rarely know where their money is invested anyway.

On the other side of the market, the desires and expectations of those millions of investors become transformed into an unremitting pressure for growth and increased profitability that every CEO

must respond to, preferably by maximizing shortterm results. Even if the CEO of a large transnational corporation wants to reduce the company’s impact on climate change, for example, any action at the necessary scale will threaten corporate profits, and they will lose their job. Corporations are legally chartered so that their first responsibility is not to their employees or customers, or to the members of the societies in which they operate, or to the ecosystems of the earth, but to their stockholders, who with few exceptions are concerned only about returns on their investment. In short, our economic system has its own built-in motivations based on greed. It’s the same with ill-will. One example of ill-will at work is the punitive legal system of the USA, which incarcerates vast numbers of people, mostly those on low incomes and people of color. White-collar criminals rarely end up in prison, at least for very long. An even more forceful example is our obsession with military spending and the weaponization of security. Measured by the power of its armed forces and the resources that are devoted to them, the United States is the most militarized society in world history. Each year in the USA, as much money is lavished on the armed forces as in the next six or seven largest economies combined. In 2011, US military spending was over $718 billion. The need to “defend ourselves” apparently requires well over 700 military installations overseas, and more than 900 at home. No wonder there’s so little money left over for education, health and social services. To justify that colossal expense, the military needs an enemy. The end of the Cold War removed the traditional enemy of the USA, but the “war on terror” replaced it with another.


This is already by far the longest war in US history, and it may never come to an end. Using drones to assassinate suspected terrorists, along with anyone else who happens to be nearby, ensures that a dependable supply of angry people are produced who have good reason to hate the USA. If terrorism is the war of the poor and disempowered, then war is the terrorism of the rich.

The US and most other countries are dominated by power elites that are composed of governments and large corporations, including the major media. People move seamlessly between these institutions, because there is little difference in their worldviews or their goals - expansion, growth and control. Politics remains “the shadow cast by big business over society,” as John Dewey once put it.

What about the third of the three poisons, or delusion? “The Buddha” literally means “the awakened one,” which implies that the rest of us are un-awakened. Each of us lives inside our own dream-like bubble of delusions, which distorts our perceptions and expectations. Buddhist practitioners are familiar with this problem, yet all of us live inside a larger bubble that determines how we understand the world and ourselves collectively. The institution that is most responsible for molding our collective sense of self is the media, which has become a kind of “international nervous system”.

The role of the media in this unholy alliance is to “normalize” this situation, so that members of the public accept it and continue to perform the roles that are required of them, especially the frenzied production and consumption that are necessary to keep the economy growing.

Genuine democracy requires an independent and activist press, in order to expose abuse and animate debate. In the process of becoming megacorporations, however, the major media have abandoned all but the pretense of objectivity. Since they are profit-making institutions whose bottom-line is based on advertising revenue, their main concern is to do whatever it takes to maximize those profits. It is not in their interest to question the grip of consumerism itself. An important component of any education worthy of the name is to realize that many of the things that we think are natural and inevitable (and therefore should be accepted), are in fact conditioned, and therefore can be changed.

The world doesn’t need to be the way it is; there are other possibilities. The present role of the media is to foreclose those possibilities by confining public awareness and discussion within narrow limits.

It’s important to realize that we are not being manipulated by a clever group of powerful people who benefit from this process. Rather, we are being manipulated by a deluded group of powerful people who benefit materially, but are also victims of their own propaganda. Not realizing that their own well-being is dependent on the well-being of other people, they are also caught up in the collective web of delusion. As the Viennese satirist Karl Kraus once said, “How do wars begin? Politicians tell lies to journalists, and then believe what they read in the newspapers.” The same applies to shared fantasies about the necessity of consumerism and perpetual economic growth, and the denial of impending ecocatastrophe. If the Buddha is correct that greed, ill will, and delusion are the causes of our suffering; and if it’s true that they’ve been institutionalized in all of our systems, then these are matters for deep and urgent concern. Awakening to the nature of these institutional poisons is just as important as the individual awakening that lies at the core of Buddhist teaching. In fact, the two are inseparable.


“How do wars begin?

Politicians tell lies to

journalists, and then believe what they read in the newspapers.” The same applies to shared fantasies about the necessity of consumerism and perpetual economic growth, and the denial of impending eco-catastrophe.

e-motion of water “Eunoia” is a performance that uses my brainwaves -- collected via EEG sensor-- to manipulate the motions of water. It derives

eunoia

from the Greek word “ey” (well) + “nous” (mind) meaning “beautiful thinking”. EEG is a brainwave detecting sensor. It measures frequencies of my brain activity (Alpha, Beta, Delta, Gamma, Theta) relating to my state of consciousness while wearing it. The data collected from EEG is translated in realtime to modulate vibrations of sound with using software programs. EEG sends the information of my brain activity to Processing, which is linked with Max/MSP to receive data

and generate sound from Reaktor.

tips Use our Plant Search tool to help you find the perfect plants for your yard and create a list of plants you can take to the local nursery on your next visit. Choose Desert-Hearty Plants Select plants that do well in our desert climate. Although nurseries offer a wide variety of plants, you'll have the greatest long-term success by focusing on hardy, low-water-use plants. Find a wide variety of low maintenance and native plants using our Plant Search. Some Recommendations Try some of these shrubs, trees and plants: Valentine Bush - Masses of tubular red flowers begin blooming in early February and continue into March. They like full sun. Cassia - This shrub's bright yellow blooms appear from January through March and sporadically the rest of the year. Rosemary - A good companion plant for the cassia, rosemary blooms during the same periods. Spanish Lavender - Expect blue spikes of color in spring and fall. Autumn Sage - Don't let the name fool you. This hummingbird favorite blooms all year, but most profusely from October through April. Sweet Acacia - Puffy yellowish-orange flowers perfume the air from February through April. Palo Verde - Count on a shower of golden-yellow blooms beginning in March. Desert Willow - Native to local washes, this tree is beloved by hummingbirds and bees and produces clusters of fragrant orchid-like blossoms, ranging from white to deep purple. Texas Mountain Laurel - This tree's large purple clusters of wisterialike flowers looks as good as they smell. Chaste Tree - Long, narrow spikes of purple flowers cover this shrublike tree in early summer. Trees When buying a container-grown tree, look for a firm, straight trunk, good symmetry of branches and foliage free of browning or disease. Check the roots: the soil mix should stay in contact with the roots. Never buy a container-grown tree with tightly congested roots or one with thick roots poking through the drainage holes. For best results with any bare-root trees, plant before mid-February. Plenty of small, fine-white, moist roots that are evenly spread out suggest a healthy tree.

no waiting! no wasting! purchase INSTANT HOT WATER HEATERS

shower & sink Selecting a Water Heater Selecting the right point of use water heater size and model is based on four simple criteria: Use – How you plan on using the water heater will determine how much hot water it needs to supply. It will also determine if it’s advantageous for you to have a single unit for your entire home, individual units at each point of use, or a combination of both. Configuration – A point of use water heater is most often used to augment a standard household hot water system but can also replace your central hot water heater with a series of point of use heaters. Consult a plumber and electrician to determine if a series of point of use water heaters will work for you. Location – The area where your water heater will be installed and the availability of the power supply will help determine the capacity of the unit you select. Tank or Tankless – Most point of use water heaters rely on a tank to maintain a ready supply of hot water, however some point of use water heaters are tankless and only heat water as needed.

Use How you use your water heater determines the type and size you need. For example, if you use the water heater sparingly for washing hands, you’ll need a smaller water heater than if you use it for more prolonged periods, such as for washing dishes. Tank Tank point of use water heaters come in a variety of sizes ranging from 2.5 gallons up to 20 gallons. For a single fixture where the hot water demand is low (hand washing, for example), a 2.5 gallon unit is often enough. If you plan on supplying multiple fixtures or have a greater hot water demand (dishwasher, washing machine, or a shower) you will need a larger capacity model. Tankless Tankless point of use water heaters are rated by the number of gallons of water per minute (gpm) they provide. Identify how many of the fixtures and appliances you might have running at the busiest time of the day and select a water heater that provides the gallons per minute you require. Refer to the table of typical flow rates for fixtures and appliances below to get an idea of the minimum gpm you require for your point of use water heater.

Collecting rainwater -- and sunlight -- are practices taught in sustainable living, permaculture and throughout the green movement. Rainwater capture using ponds and swales is one of the most important strategies for restoring a local landscape. See a good video overview of this here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=keXhHMmA2Xk These rainwater capture practices help trees grow more quickly and accelerate the return of animal life to any region. They can even be used to restore a desert to a lush, food-producing forest.

Drinking Water from the Air

provides a continuous water supply


Safe and readily available drinking water is important for public health India, a country with a population of over a billion people, has been going through a third of the population, i.e., approximately 300 million people, live in urban areas. But at present most of the cities in India do not provide continuous water supply to all their citizens, and not even a half the urban poor have access to household connections. In most cities, water is supplied for a period of between 1 and 6 hours per day Groundwater, which constitutes 85% of the source of drinking water in India, is highly polluted with microbiological, and more important, chemical contaminants Some residential water suppliers add chlorine to drinking water to remove certain microbial pathogens, but none of them provides a full solution for chemical contaminations found in the water

There are chemicals intentionally used in water treatment that many experts consider health compromising (chlorine, chloramines, chlorine dioxide, aluminum sulfate and fluoride). Be aware too that some of the highest risk contaminants form in water as the result of the chemical reaction between water treatment additives such as chlorine.

generate vortex water

The process of optimizing water is accomplished by passing the water through a collection of perfectly arrayed, precision ground glass spheres arranged in a meticulously configured geometric pattern known as the "flow form."

http://www.crystalblueent.com/water-units-.html


Most people think we have solved the problem of providing healthy drinking water for everyone. However, we force the water through chemical cleaning processes with toxic chemicals like chlorine added to it. When then press the water through pumps and pipes of iron, concrete or plastic without considering the consequences for the quality of water. Viktor Schauberger, who spent his lifetime studying the inherent properties of water, called the result of such treatment dead water. Schauberger observed the whirling motion of water in streams and rivers which meander and flow in a natural way, factors which are responsible for its bouyancy and self-cleaning abilities. He also recognized the importance of the vortex movement for the life-energetic properties of water.

NOTE: The Wasserwirbler is a water energizing device, not a waterpurification device.

The Wonderful World of Water, How to Purify and ReEnergize your Water

Since it is not possible to make natural living spring water available to everybody, the German engineer Wilhelm Martin, in an effort to improve the quality and life energy charge of tap water, developed a small device based on Schauberger's findings that can be attached to the tap or shower. By going through this "Wirbler" (Wirbel is the German word for vortex), the water is directed into a spinning vortex and thus regains the original spiral movement we can observe in natural creeks and rivers. According to Schauberger, only whirling vortex water can be living water.

Creating Water Out of Thin Air 
 Ingenious Billboard Helps Alleviate Drinking Water Shortages Using the power of technology to help ease water security issues, Peruvian ad agency Mayo DraftFCB and the University of Engineering and Technology in Lima have joined forces to create the rst watergenerating billboard. Built in Lima, Peru, the innovative structure pulls moisture from the air and condenses it into clean, potable water.

One of the driest places on Earth, Lima receives less than two inches of rainfall per year yet has an atmospheric humidity of around 98 percent – making the city an ideal location for the water-producing billboard. The system collects water from the air, condenses it in a similar manner as an air conditioner and then puri es the water through reverse osmosis. The billboard can generate up to 96 liters of water per day, which is stored in 20-liter tanks and dispensed via a spigot at the bottom of the structure. The billboard has already provided 9,450 liters of clean water in three months of operation.

About 700,000 of the city’s residents don’t have access to clean water, while another 600,000 rely on cisterns which require lling by hand or with a pump. The billboard helps improve sanitation and health in the community, where individuals would otherwise be

forced to draw from polluted wells. The structure costs $1200 to install and runs o electricity from city power lines. The university hopes to o set operating costs through advertising revenue from the billboard.

Excerpt from History of Dowsing by Steve Herbert

WHAT IS DOWSING? by Steven G. Herbert

Dowsing is defined as the search for information by means of a hand-held instrument and faculties beyond the five physical senses. Going far beyond what may be your stereotypic image of a farmer in his coveralls walking around his field looking for water with a forked stick, it is an art practiced by people from all walks of life, using a great variety of instruments and for a limitless number of applications. Tangible target dowsing is used to locate water, but also underground cables and pipes, ore and minerals, oil and gas, archaeological sites, buried treasure, and so on. In informational dowsing, a device such as a pendulum can answer yes or no to your questions by its coded movements. One may ask advice about a choice of jobs, relationship issues, decisions about where to live, or virtually any choice of action. The source of the information transcends the ego and conscious mind. As we master the art of dowsing, inevitably we learn to tap into higher levels of Mind and Spirit.

ç

In many of the Egyptian tombs, objects have been found which Ater identifies as pendulums used for dowsing. A common item in tomb paintings and reliefs show men with skirts which have a Yrod sewn right into it. And the many variations of the common ankh may well have been a SA dowsing tool. But perhaps the most common type of dowsing tool was the straight rod. Some were plain and some were decorated or had symbols added. The rod was called “WAS”, derived from the ancient Sanskrit word “Vasati”, meaning “He lives – He dwells”, i.e., the deity responding dwells within the rod. Most WAS wands featured a forked shape at the lower end. Ater suggests the rod itself represented a shaft of sunlight and the fork the splayed ends of sunlight or hands, a very common motif in Egypt. Thus, the dowsing staff itself represents the light that reveals all, the Light which was revered in this culture. The top end of the rod commonly featured what resembled a jackal head, a small projection, or the curved shape of the lotus calyx.

The staff of the Egyptians may have gone even beyond eliciting answers to questions from the gods. Certain magical powers may have been attributed to it as well. Moses may have been versed in all the arts associated with the staff, having been brought up among the higher class of Egypt. We are all familiar with the story of how the Egyptian magicians cast down their staffs which turned into snakes, thereby Aaron, the brother of Moses then cast his staff down which turned into a snake that swallowed up the others (Exodus 7:12). Also in Exodus, in 4:14 is described how Moses with his rod delivered the plagues and divided the sea. Even more well known is the story of how Moses brought forth water by striking a stone with his staff (Exodus 17:1-7 and Numbers 20:9-11, 29:8-11). Used as a dowsing instrument, the staff, rather than a pulling down motion, probably leaned outward to indicate a dowsing response. We can see how one could say, as in the 23rd Psalm “thy rod and thy staff they comfort me”.

Dowsing for Water: And the Water for Humanity Fund The Water for Humanity Fund was established in 1991 to fund water resources development, purification, protection or conservation in areas of critical need worldwide. Its mission is to improve water resources wherever it goes in terms of accessibility, quantity and quality. Water resources development and sanitation improvements go handin-hand, as the latter falls under the realm of water protection. Both serve the ultimate goals to reduce morbidity and mortality, improve health and increase productivity and the quality of life. Improving water resources and sanitation is often the first step needed before any other development programs can be initiated. The aspect which makes the Water for Humanity (WFH) Fund unique among all other water resources aid and development organizations is the added aspect of dowsing. WFH Fund is a subsidiary

organization, operating under the umbrella of the American Society of Dowsers, based in Danville, Vermont. Thus, the secondary purpose of the WFH Fund is to demonstrate the practicality of dowsing and build credibility for the art. In all its projects, the WFH Fund highly encourages its partnering local organizations to utilize traditional water dowsers, whether or not they also consult the advice of professional hydrogeologists. A very high success rate of drilling or digging is the result, also increasing the efficient use of donation dollars. Whenever WFH committee members or volunteers travel to project sites themselves, they offer training in dowsing. How gratifying it is to teach rural farmers this skill, no matter their level of education, to find water as well or often better than university-trained professionals with expensive equipment. This is empowering, and it is a skill that is transferable to so many other aspects of their lives.

by Steve Herbert


To date, over the 24 years of its existence, the WFH Fund has funded projects in 17 countries, spanning North, Central and South America and the Caribbean, Africa and Asia. Its range of sponsored projects include foremost dug or drilled wells, and also rainwater harvesting, spring capitation, appropriately technological pumping, water filtration and composting latrines. We also have supported water delivery on the Eastern Navajo reservation in New Mexico, USA. When WFH Fund representatives travel to project sites, often at their own expense, in addition to dowsing training, they may train rural farmers to operate and maintain portable drilling equipment, consult on appropriate pumping technologies, oversee the distribution of household water filtration devices and supervise the building of composting latrines. WFH Fund’s philosophy is that each and every project must be environmentally sustainable, technologically appropriate, and culturally sensitive and respectful.

r

Appropriate technology is defined as technology that is relatively simple, which can be fabricated at the local level with locally available materials. It is a technology which is within the capacity of the beneficiaries to operate and maintain, and for which replacement parts are readily available. In the vast majority of well projects which the WFH Fund sponsors, for example, manual pumps are installed which fits this description. Two examples of many are the India Mark II pump, and the rope and washer pump. Another reason for the preference for these pumps is environmental. It is expected that with a manual pump, the aquifer or groundwater source can not be over-pumped.

Water filtration is another area in which the methods we promote have passed the test of the technological appropriateness. In surveying the gamut of choices available, the options first eliminated were those which involved chemical treatment, which introduces this risk of exposure to carcinogens, and those which necessitate boiling, which requires firewood and is both environmentally unsustainable and increases the burden on women to gather it. The two methods which made the grade are the ceramic water filter and the slow-sand biofilter. The former can be made of locally available clay mixed with screened sawdust, low-fired to produce a flower pot-like filter element that fits in the top of a fivegallon bucket. The latter is made of a concrete or plastic container filled with a column of fine sand, which in time also develops a biological layer on top of the sand containing beneficial bacteria which reduces the pathenogenic organisms before they filter out in the sand. Both methods feature an effective pore space of one micron, which prevents passage of 100% of all worms and protozoa (and their eggs and cysts), and 90% to 99% of all bacteria and viruses. Even though of the 2.5 billion people in the world who lack proper sanitation facilities, approximately one billion still practice open defecation in fields and forests, the WFH Fund rejects the pit latrine as a solution. In its view, the pit latrine is neither environmentally sustainable nor hygienic. It is characterized by a highly objectionable smell due to anaerobic decomposition, and clouds of flies which in the wet contents breed and become disease vectors. Instead, the WFH Fund promotes the doublevault, alternating-use and urine-separating system. In the tropics especially, this system works essentially passively, managing oxygen, moisture, temperature and carbon to nitrogen ratio, to produce through aerobic decomposition a useful product from human waste. Such fertilizer can be used on gardens or field crops to produce more nutritious vegetables, thus closing the nutrient loop. It can be a system actually aesthetically pleasing to use.

r

A composting latrine in Honduras

The Water for Humanity Fund is managed by a ninemember committee, presently all-volunteer transitioning to include a part-time position for the Program Manager. Steve Herbert has occupied the Secretary and Program Manager position since 1997.


ç

He came to it with an educational background of a B.S. in Geology and an M.A. in Anthropology, plus the experience of a tour in the US Peace Corps in Senegal, West Africa. In Senegal, his position was as an Agroforestry Extension Agent, but here he also successfully dowsed water well sites all over that country and designed and built composting latrines suited to both the climate and culture of Senegal. Since then, he has made ten trips to date to Central and South America and the Caribbean, in part as a WFH ambassador to conduct a full range of trainings and projects, often with sponsorship of the US Partners of the Americas and Farmer to Farmer programs. Other WFH Committee members have made similar excursions to Haiti, Nicaragua, Bolivia and Kenya. In considering proposals which have been submitted to the WFH Fund, the committee uses a strict set of criteria by which we judge these. First, they must submit proof of being a legitimately registered society, and when applicable, also registered to receive foreign contributions. We look for a professionally prepared proposal, introducing the organization and its situation, describing the project and its activities, and providing an itemized budget with various attachments. The committee assesses whether there is true need which is supported by evidence. Grants are awarded with preferences given where the greatest amount of people will benefit in the most cost-effective way.

s

The Committee of the WFH Fund must further assure that sustainability is built into the project. In the case of a well project, for example, we insist that a pump maintenance organization and pump repair fund be formally set up, and that certain members of the committee are trained in maintenance and repair and are supplied tools to do the job. In all cases we want to see the beneficiaries involved in forming a committee, not only to manage the project during construction, but long into the future. We also look to see how the recipients themselves are contributing, whether it be as a percentage of the monetary cost, or in-kind in the form of manual labor, supply of materials, transportation of materials, security, and hospitality to the workers, for example.

A yound man is trained to operate a portable drilling rig in Hondura

A rope & washer pump in Honduras


ç

In the proposals which the WFH Fund receives from all over the world, there are a number of problems which are characteristically listed as related to insufficient access to adequate supplies of safe and potable water. Insufficient rainfall or ill-timed distribution of rainfall tops the list, whether caused by natural or human induced climate change. Certainly deforestation and environmental degradation at the local level is a common contributing factor. Naturally following from this is dropping water tables, often accelerated by over-pumping of aquifers by large-scale agriculture. Surface waters which may be the only alternative are nearly always polluted by bio-contaminants such as animal and human feces, and corresponding parasites and disease. Or they may be contaminated by industrial wastes. Retention ponds may be silted in or available government-provided taps may run only infrequently and sporadically. Unheeded appeals to the government very often are reported. Very commonly described are long walks by the women and children to fetch water, often facing hazards along the way. Always there are the ever-present water-borne diseases which afflict them, sapping the family finances in treating them, and causing missed time from work or school. In places like India there may be unique difficulties faced, like the prevention of approaching the better water sources due to being of a lower caste.
