Big Water and your future

Saturday, March 7th, 2015

Big Water is sucking the life out of a precious natural resource for a pittance, and government is only too happy to allow the Greedy Gulp to continue.
This isn’t necessary, and the situation can be made to work in the public’s, and for the environment’s. benefit. Who owns your water?

Water … a basic human right

Monday, August 11th, 2014

Clean water is a basic human right. Everyone knows that and only an absolute moron would disagree. Our knowledge doesn’t explain why water sources continue to dry up and water prices continue to climb. This site lists a lot of companies that sell water.

Add Nestlé, Coca Cola and Perrier to this roll call of H2O producers and suppliers. In fact they don’t really produce anything … you do.
Your tax dollars at the municipal level are used to store, distribute and maintain a supply of clean water. In some areas money is used to recycle and purify water. This water is for drinking, agriculture, replenishing ground-water resources, and for creating a freshwater barrier. This barrier prevents seawater from contaminating fresh water.

What some of the bottled water companies do is take water directly from these reserves and they don’t pay for it. Then they charge customers a premium price for bottled water.

Nestlé’s CEO Peter Brabeck has some interesting thoughts on water.

On the other hand, Coca Cola says, “… water comes with the assurance of safety from The Coca-Cola Company. That is why we introduced … with reverse –osmosis along with the latest technology to ensure purity of our product. Because we believe that right to pure, safe drinking water is fundamental.” Yay Coca Cola.

Included here are some links to further develop an understanding of the realities and possibilities of water conservation and purification.
