Clean water for the entire world an ambitious goal but thanks to man an impossible endeavor

Access to clean drinking water planetary wide projects: Boy are we in trouble

A message to all members of MyPeace.TV


Today we are very happy to feature this wonderfully inspiring video about a project dedicated to ensuring that all people on our planet have access to clean drinking water.

With Love and much Gratitude,

I must admit this is an enviable goal and I am a member of mypeace but thanks to man clean water for all is an impopssible endeavor. It is much easier to bring water to all which in itself is impossible though a year ago I wrote on the UN's declaration of clean water as a basic human right and its impossibility. Once again this is another issue getting worse every day not better.

UN declares access to water a basic human right, man are we in trouble!

UN declares access to water a basic human right

We are grossly failing ourselves and the world and we won't even get into the worlds growing water wars! Please look at it though water wars are a rapidly growing world crisis Anyway, remember our discussion during earth day?

880 mn people lack access to clean water: Red Cross In honor of earth week and earth day March 27th I did a story on how dire the situation on the health or our planet really is. I started warning of the changing environment and our involvement in it when I was in high school in 1970. My efforts were always laughed at but it is too late to turn around and no one is laughing any more.

Anyway I have written so extensively in the past it would take a book so I will just mention a link from an expert and whistle blower as to Global nuclear cover up, Depleted uranium, Gulf war Syndrome,increased Autism Diabetes Cancer, and how we have in just this one respect poisoned our own Mother. Mother Earth!
The World Economic Forum was overwhelmed Likewise I have also written in the past about the huge swirl of garbage in the Pacific ocean.

After happening onto Fabien Cousteau discussing the fact that it has now doubled in size in just 2 years and is now twice the size of Texas I was stunned and wanted to point this out. Fabien Cousteau on the dire condition of our ocean

Ocean Pollution Grows Larger From 100 Million Tons of Garbage .

there are huge islands of garbage swirling together into ever-growing "cyclones" of debris

Continent-sized swirl of rubbish raises alarm , it is a horrible new Habitat

* Wake up we are killing our Mother and not with kindness. We throw away 43,000 tons of food away every day in America. That is sick in itself! The world is starving hell even Americans are starving and we just throw away 43,000 tons of food a year. Makes me want to scream.
* We are drowning in trash. A family of 5 generates 25 pounds of trash a day. What is our Population? Figure it out!
* We use 100 million plastic bags per year. Enough is enough!

* In closing we are running out of potable water and at the same time much of our chemicals we use to grow our food ends up in the ocean along with all our other debris. As a result the monstrous garbage swirl in the pacific described above is only one. There are many and they are in every ocean. The debris field in the pacific is 90 feet deep. Seems to and is twice the size of Texas. Seems to me that this should spawn a new industry for former fishermen. I do not remember the size of fishing nets but I do know they go down 90 feet. Seems to me like a business can be made.

Leave port empty go to these debris fields and bring a catch of garbage and debris back. Instead of getting paid by the pound for the fish you catch you get paid by the pound for what you remove from the debris field. I am sure it can be monitored and we could burn it as an energy source at extreme heats. We have to do something. We are drowning in our Garbage. It is taking over the world. The world as we knew it is already gone. The world as we know it is right behind unless we wake up and yesterday not next year!

Good Afternoon Jim ... and finally relief from the exccessively long hot summer we had this year, as I write this, it's a beautiful 74 degree's in Dallas. But Thanx for the link's and read here Jim. I was suprised that you were thinking "enviromental" stuff back around the early 1970's, but it did remind me of something around 1970 that caught my atencion when I stayed in Buffalo (NY) ... there was alot of good hunting upstate, and I loved to hunt as a kid too. But what really made me think, was after being in the wood's upstate and hunting with the view and surrounding of all the beauty (and upstate New York is really beautiful Jim, dont know if your familiar with it) ... I came back into Buffalo, which was also at the time, home to Bethlehem (spelling?) and Republic Steel, the air was so polluted back then (much worse than NYC) that the sky over the city back then had a yellowish green tint to it and smelled like fart's, I shit you not. The water's were so bad there and especially around the Love Canal, that when you stuck a stick into the water, it would come out black from the oil's and stuff, it was really bad off back then. But that is when I first thought or questioned what we were doing to the earth, just from that experience as a kid.

Also as far as the wasted food you mention ... aint that the truth ... geeez ... were a wasteful society Dude! I remember once in my teen's having a job in Houston at a fast food type diner called "Roy Rogers Family Restaraunt" (many year's ago, but I hear it's still that way) ... we had to throw out any food that was under the heating light's for over a length of time like a half hour or something, but yeah ... they just told us to throw them out and check it off a list what we tossed out, but everyday before going home, I would sneak some of the food into bag's and when I was dumping the trash, I would stash the food right before I got off work, pick it up after work and take it home, I had two roomate's then, one was a rodeo clown (a former rider who got injured and couldnt ride again, and another roomate who was offshore a few week's at a time, he worked hydroblasting at an offshore oil rig in the Gulf, and got great pay too) ... but anywayz ... I would bring enough to feed us and even neighbor's who would come by every night just to smoke pot with us, we bought pot by the pound, none of that baggie stuff back then (Mexican). Did alot of hunting back then in East Texas too, same deal, Houston/ Pasadena was worse than Buffalo even! I was fired though for taking the food home ... but quickly found another job at an oil and lube joint two block's from home, so I was then getting free oil changes ... heh, heh, heh, heh, heh : ) ... well doing them myself with shop stuff, but the manager let us too.

I just recently was watching some documentary stuff on PBS or something about water, it was some condense urban area of either Pakistan or India ... and the folk's in the city didnt even have clean water, it looked awful as far as sanitation and condition's Jim, they were using water to bath and wash the clothes and drink all in the same it seemed, it was awful. I did a couple posting on the water that run's off mountain's for folk's and how it may effect migration of folk's in year's to come ... Later Guy ....

Glad you guys have some nice weather for a while that was fucked up. I understand you have some serious drought problems now.

We have made a fucking mess out of this planet. Yeah, started high school in 70 and knew right off the back we were fucked.

Just looking at us and what we did and listening to my father and prior generations you progressively try to out do each other and worsen everything.Everything gets worse not better.

Actually I went to and lived at an Aggie. I wanted to be a forest ranger but then I got into animal science and liked it too much. Worked on the school farm before and after classes and around New England in the summer.

Anyway I could see the changes coming then and use to tell my friends about the climate changes coming. They thought I was high and I was but that's another story.

On that note quickly when my brother came home on leave from the marines I gave him $100 to buy a pound to make money to fly back. Amazing huh?

There is so much shit coming and it won't be long. They were talking job riots today maybe coming here eventually and they will along with food and everything else.

They have been preparing for it for years starting with Bush. I remember the secret martial law meetings all the Senators talked about because they were so freaked out.

Water wars have started around the world. Why do you think China is really after Tibet? They want theirs and Asia's water source, the Himalayas. Forget about everything else there is some shit coming down.

Oh last thing! Working on farms in Maine I read Natural Geographics all the time so I got a lot of insight. I eventually had every year back to the 19th century. Adios for now.

Yeah Jim ... there has been alot of talk in Texas about drought, the state has a large agricultural industry actually, and it has taken it's toll from what I read and viewed on it. We had 70 dayz this year of at least 100 degree's and over in the Dallas- Fort Worth Metroplex, which broke the previous record of 69 dayz if I recall correctly, it's hot when it's like that, but understand that the humidity is also low ... example ... when I lived in New York City for instance, and it got in the 90's, it was so congested and humid in the City compared to out this way, and you would literally sweat bullet's waiting on the subway underground at that in NY. The Metroplex (a name of the metro area) is what I look at as a city of lake's actually, having been all over the country ... I mean, this city actually has lake's the size of some cities, they have been affected, but I didnt notice much, my daughter and boyfriend recently rented a large boat to have about 50 friend's over and party on, and had some Kayack (spelling?) parties, etc, there wasnt any water rationing or anything in the Metroplex as far as making it mandatory or such ... west and southwest of here maybe 100 miles or so at least (this state is kind of large, it take's me 12 hour's about to drive from Dallas to El Paso and it's probably at least 800 or 900 miles I reckon from the east to west of the state alone, it take's me about 7 hour's to get to Mexico from Dallas), there has been some fires that were devastating to home's and town's I heard, from the extreme dry spell, but that too is pretty common during dry time's ... when I lived in Los Angeles/ Hollywood we also had alot of fire's too (I even hunted out in the Mojave Desert).

Yes Jim ... I was pointing on that in earlier posting's a few year's ago about violent outbreak's in America over job's, class, etc ... if thing's continued, as well, including terrorism, more even domestically ... kind of a cause/ effect thing. I also believe that these thing's are healthy and necessary and will eventually lead to actual change, which I covered as well ... because frankly Jim, those who represent us, dont and wont the way we treat them, and basically just insult the people, so I feel that other measure's NEED to be taken in these situation's ... and of course I also advocate violence as being healthy to an extent ... or let's just say ... healthy revolutionary action, is all. Plus, as long as we dont destroy our own communities and instaed target the big money establishment's, I look at it as a "job's" creator, being they will spend to repair and replace what we bust up, so it in a way I look at as a redistribution of mega wealth of sort ... of course, just more well organized violence, which I consider as "self defense". I heard the Mayor of NYC is concerned about it, in a recent statement.

Pot/ weed for $100 a pound back in the early 1970's is what a pound cost was in urban Texas, I paid $100 for a pound when I lived in Houston and would buy one or two per week back then, sell $10 lid's (ounce bag's) to friend's to get back my money and a small profit for my effort's, then pretty much smoked and gave away the rest (I dated alot of gal's who loved to smoke too, of course at my expense : ), they were compressed and wrapped in brown paper bag material. I could go to Nuevo Laredo/ Laredo though or El Paso/ Juarez back then and usually get them for as low as $60 per pound, but on them I usually bought 20 pound's or more to make it worth my drive. Ahhhhhh ... you bring back some ole memories pardna ... : )

You know, those were the good days in many ways. $10 a lid nickles were a half not a few joints and you gave away anything less than that.

Anyway I know the shit is going to hit the fan big time worse than ever before for us but around the world too and I can't believe it happened on our watch.

It is our kids and grand kids I feel sorry for. I wanted them to have what we had not pure hell. Just hold on my friend!
