The fresh water supply in the United States is too often taken for granted and given a far too low priority by governments. That has long been the position of fresh water advocate and radio host Sharon Kleyne, which she will discuss in detail on her upcoming show of April 20, 2015. The seriousness of the current worst-ever California drought, and the apparent inadequacy of the state’s long term preparedness, underscores Kleyne’s position.
Kleyne has issued a public warning to all Americans that our water is at risk and must never be taken for granted.
Kleyne will present her views on drought, water supply and preparedness on her Sharon Kleyne Hour® Power of Water® radio broadcast of April 20, 2015. For podcasts of that and other past shows, go to http://www.SharonKleyneHour.com.
The syndicated Sharon Kleyne Hour™ Power of Water® radio show, hosted by fresh water advocate Sharon Kleyne, is heard weekly on VoiceAmerica and Apple iTunes. The education oriented show is sponsored by Bio-Logic Aqua® Research, a global research and technology center founded by Kleyne and specializing in fresh water, the atmosphere, water vapor and dehydration. Nature’s Mist® Face of the Water® is the Research Center’s signature product for dry and dehydrated skin and eyes.
The fresh water situation in California, and in much of the US, is even worse than most people realize, Kleyne believes. She points out that in much of the world, severe water shortages are an everyday occurrence and that the current US situation is not much better. Kleyne also believes that with good public education, advance planning and cutting-edge technology and management, California has the resources to endure any drought no matter how severe. The place to start, according to Kleyne, is for every government entity to make fresh water its number one priority.
According to Kleyne, anyone in the world who is able to drink a glass of water, wash their hands or take a bath whenever they choose, is extremely fortunate. The water in your tub from a single bath, Kleyne notes, could keep a family in Somalia alive for a week each day, thousands of people around the world, including children, die needlessly because of fresh water shortages, unsanitary water and water wars.
In the United States, says Kleyne, we have unlimited fresh water at our fingertips, 24 hours a day, for pennies a gallon. Unless we take decisive measures to protect this water, it might soon disappear.
According to Kleyne, public awareness is a major factor in resolving water shortages. For example, when a Southern Californian takes a bath, they should know that their water might be imported from Colorado, which is experiencing its own water shortages and may soon be unwilling to export water. The water might also be the result of bitter negotiations between agricultural and municipal water interests in which supplying water to one side comes at the expense of the other side.
Mrs. Kleyne is optimistic that these problems can be solved, not only in California and Colorado but in Somalia and elsewhere. According to Kleyne, despite increasing worldwide drought, rapid population growth and widespread pollution, there is enough fresh water for everyone. The problem is lack of infrastructure and distribution, corrupt of impoverished governments, lack of cooperation, not enough water conservation, and most of all, lack of an educated public.
“The more the public is aware,” says Kleyne, “the harder it becomes for political leaders to ignore the problem. A good place to start is to know where your bath water comes from.”
