You Won’t Believe How Bad Pollution In China Has Become
Published August 27, 2014
Updated August 9, 2017

“With a newly-minted elite and an economic growth rate of over 10 percent, the environment has taken a backseat in China, the world’s most populous country. Growing pollution has led to unusable waterways, increased incidence of birth defects, and some of the dirtiest air on earth. It’s so nasty that there’s now a word for it: “smogpocalypse”.”

The Plastic Age: A Documentary feat. Pharrell Williams

“We all talk about the Stone Age, the Iron Age and the Bronze Age, but what era are we living in right now? People are starting to refer to us as the – far less romantic – Plastic Age. We make 288 million tonnes of plastic a year, and unlike paper, metal, glass or wood, it does not oxidise or biodegrade, instead it ends up in our oceans, making the ratio of plastic to plankton 100:1. The way to make use of The Great Pacific Garbage Patch? Bionic yarn. Co-designed by Pharrell, G-Star’s RAW for the Oceans collection is the world’s first denim line created from plastic that has been fished out of the big blue and recycled. Find out how we can pick 700,000 tonnes of plastic up off the sea floor in our documentary, made possible by G-Star, The Plastic Age.”

 Tapped Out: A documentary about water. Published on May 24, 2015

Published on Apr 22, 2015

Historian John Gurda explores how the Milwaukee River and Lake Michigan spurred Milwaukee’s growth. The settlers used rivers and Lake Michigan to transport grain, lumber, leather and beer, but water was just as important for play as it was for work. Gurda explains how the Milwaukee River became a destination for fun. Learn how the lower Milwaukee River was eventually reduced to an open sewer by 1900, with Lake Michigan suffering similar indignities. Only in recent decades have the currents turned for the better. From the Milwaukee River Greenway to the reborn Menomonee Valley to the cultural theme park on our downtown lakefront, the patterns of the past are being reversed, providing cause for celebration as well as concern.

PLASTIC MINI GYRE HAWAII from Sustainable Coastlines Hawaii on Vimeo.

“A short film of a mini gyre filled with microplastics that Sustainable Coastlines Hawaii cleaned up in August 2017. Sadly, it reformed just a few days later filled with more microplastics and debris. It’s a stark wakeup call to the future we need to prepare for and the need to take action to stop society’s overuse of plastic now. Because if all we do is clean, that’s all we’ll ever do.”

Antidepressants found in fish brains in Great Lakes region ~August 31, 2017  Source:University at Buffalo

 The drugs enter rivers and lakes from treatment plants and sewage overflows, threatening aquatic life, scientists say.

“Antidepressants stood out as a major problem: These drugs or their metabolites were found in the brains of every fish species the scientists studied.

The highest concentration of a single compound was found in a rock bass, which had about 400 nanograms of norsertraline — a metabolite of sertraline, the active ingredient in Zoloft — per gram of brain tissue. This was in addition to a cocktail of other compounds found in the same fish, including citalopram, the active ingredient in Celexa, and norfluoxetine, a metabolite of the active ingredient in Prozac and Sarafem.”  https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2017/08/170831101457.htm?

contaminated water
Water pollution, old infrastructure contaminates water supplies: Part II of II
by Antonia Sohns, contributing author

“In early March, states from New Jersey to California dealt with bursting water mains that flooded streets, consumed cars in sinkholes and left residents without water.

Across the U.S., aging pipes are breaking apart. The EPA estimates that approximately 240,000 water main breaks occur each year. Not only do these old pipes lose an estimated 14 to 18 percent of the nation’s daily water use and cost $2.6 billion in losses as drinking water pours into the streets, but the leaks also provide entry points for contaminants.

Aging pipes threaten water quality by leaching contaminants such as lead into the water they carry. Although lead pipes were banned by Congress 30 years ago, approximately 6.5 million remain in service according to the American Water Works Association. Chemicals are added to the water supply to prevent lead and other chemicals from leaching from the pipes, but too often a pipe repair or modification to the water chemistry results in lead exposure. In 2001, lead concentrations in Washington, D.C.’s tap water remained 20-times the federally approved level for three years after the city changed its water disinfection processes. In Flint, the change in water supply from the Detroit water supply to the more corrosive Flint River resulted in high levels of lead in the water.

Most of the drinking water infrastructure in the U.S. was built more than 50 years ago. In older cities, water pipes may have been in the ground for a century or longer. In Alaska, South Dakota and Pennsylvania officials believe that some communities continue to rely on historic wooden water pipes that once installed were never replaced.

The nation’s sewer systems are also severely outdated. New York City, San Francisco, Washington, D.C., Philadelphia and others, operate combined sewage systems to treat wastewater and storm water, but the capacity of these systems’ was developed for fewer people and before such extreme weather conditions. Therefore, the volume of water entering the system during times of heavy rain exceeds capacity and results in the discharge of billions of gallons of raw sewage into local surface water every year. This problem will continue as the nation’s sewer systems have not been properly invested in to support growing populations or to adapt to increasingly variable rainfall with the onset of climate change.”<Read more here>

Chinese air pollution. Published on Jan 13, 2014

“Lately there’s been a lot of talk about Chinese air pollution; smog so thick, you can barely see the streets of Beijing. But what you might not know is that China is facing a major water crisis. Rivers are drying up and there’s not enough water to go around. And what little water there is has been so polluted by chemical and industrial run off, it’s undrinkable. And if the Three Gorges Dam didn’t cause enough trouble, the next great public work sure will. It’s called The South-North Diversion Project, and will link up the Yellow River with the Yangtze River, hopefully funneling water from the south to the water starved North. All it takes is drilling through the Himalayas.”

lake-erie-algaeResidents of Toledo, Ohio’s fourth-largest city, spent the weekend under a water advisory after tests revealed toxins in the city’s water supply, likely caused by algae growing in Lake Erie.

Early on Saturday, municipal officials asked the 500,000 residents served by the city’s water system to stop using tap water after the toxins were found at a city water treatment plant. The orders were clear: Do not drink the water, do not brush your teeth or prepare food with it, and do not give it to your pets. Health officials also advised that children and people with weak immune systems refrain from using the water to bathe.” Read more online

water is lifeWater is becoming rare these days, droughts are spreading all over the world, water is disappearing at alarming levels and water wars are happening across the globe!  We need to know why and how we can help, before it’s too late.

Now we look at the quality of the water in those plastic bottles, many are just using tap water and selling it back to us! Also, what a waste that is just so unacceptable, use the plastic bottle once and throw away! Making our own Biotite H3o2 water eliminates the plastic bottle problem, and gives your body the pure oxygenated water it deserves and needs, it’s fresh and clean NOW.

Here’s another issue of concern ~ FLUORIDE ~

Many cities and states are realizing the importance of removing this fluoride poison from our drinking water, why is it there? The indications from researchers are given this a thumbs down ~ our children are living with the results of this insidious additive to our water. We must act now, it’s all there on the internet, see for yourselves how the side effects are killing us. This video is a real wake-up call!

“The Great Culling: Our Water Official Full Movie”.

 **********************

There are several excellent ways to clean the water, to restructure it back to living H3o2 water that is safe for drinking.  Black Mica Biotite  is one way that we like best, it is used for water purification; it removes contaminants and toxins such as fluoridation, restoring it back to its natural state with ionic minerals. Some techniques use magnets, gemstones like tourmaline and obsidian with aluminum filters, and other amazing and costly filters for the spiraling movement that oxygenates the water. It’s best to explore and see what’s best for you, there are many choices but “feeling” is very helpful with water, a time to trust your “feeling knowing“!

How does drought affect all of us? Food cannot be grown without water, just to name one thing, NOW is the time to act!

The coming water wars of the Western USA

Truth be told, much of the Western USA is in the same dire situation as Las Vegas. Cities like Los Angeles were founded in the desert, then artificially supplied with water that’s literally pumped over a mountain. If those pumps are halted for any reason, Las Vegas immediately reverts to a desert, and the city becomes a death trap for its millions of residents who rapidly discover they are living in a desert.

Even when the water is pumping, the entire state of California — yes, 100 percent — has already been classified as being in a state of “severe drought.” Imagine what this looks like without the imported water.

Phoenix is also a city that’s too large for its water supply. Nearby Tucson suffers much the same problem. Nevada, California, Arizona, New Mexico and Utah are all wildly unsustainable in terms of water supplies. They all depend in part on the Colorado River, but that River is also headed for imminent collapse.”
