Anyone who pays attention to their local news has seen the signs of a coming apocalypse in the United States, although they are probably not aware of it. While many equate a water crisis to the sucking up of resources by big business interests or an offhanded moment of pollution from the local industry, there is another type water crisis looming over America. It’s not just Coca-Cola and property rights, it’s the failure of municipalities, states, and the federal government to ensure that drinking water is actually drinkable.

To the consternation of the company drawing millions of gallons of water every year from deep inside the San Bernardino National Forest for a mere $524, the California State Water Resources Control Board slammed Nestlé with a notification at least three-quarters of its brutally contentious operation — the extracted water of which fills Arrowhead Mountain Spring Water disposable bottles — isn’t operating under the appropriate permits. Continue reading No, Nestle, You Do NOT Have the Right to Withdraw All That Water from a National Forest

“The day science begins to study non-physical phenomena, it will make more progress in one decade than in all the previous centuries of its existence.”
— Nikola Tesla
This is exactly what’s happening right now, and it’s making its presence felt in all levels of academia. But we still have a lot way to go. Fortunately, a group of internationally recognized scientists have come together to stress the importance of what is still commonly overlooked in the mainstream scientific community: the fact that matter (protons, electrons, photons, anything that has a mass) is not the only reality. We wish to understand the nature of our reality, but if we only examine physical systems and ignore all the rest — things like consciousness, and the way it interacts with matter — we’ll never be able to. Continue reading If Human Thought Can Do This To Water, Just Imagine What It Can Do To Us

The World Bank wants its gold mining project in Cajamarc, Colombia badly, but the people of this small town just voted against the mammoth South African-sourced project which would have utterly changed their lives.
Locals had been calling the project “Auntie Anglo-Gold,” which ironically isn’t just a stab at the ethnicity of the folks who were meant to profit most from the gold mining outfit, but is the actual name of the gold-mining company who has already ripped other small towns to shreds with its mining practices. AngloGold Ashanti is a company listed on the London Stock Exchange. Continue reading Colombian Town Rejects $35 Billion Gold Mine in Preference of Clean Air, Water, Simple Life
Water is life. Literally. Life as we know it currently is improbable without liquid water. All life on Earth requires water to one degree or another. Water is so integral to life that astronomers look for liquid water as a sign of potential habitats for extraterrestrial life. A human being can die as quickly as 24 hours from lack of water.
Assuming perfect conditions, you might live up to 3-4 days without water to sustain you. You can go 30-40 days without food but water is more integral to our physiology. All of the chemical processes in your body require water to either carry out or facilitate. When you’re dehydrated, your blood changes from a thick red kool-aid into something closer to jello. As the blood thickens, it becomes increasingly more difficult for your heart to push that thicker fluid around your body. Continue reading These Things Happen To Your Body When You Drink Enough Water

“Everyone has the right to drinkable water.” This is what Slovenia’s newest article in their constitution states as the parliament voted 64-0 in favor of the amendment.
This amendment to their constitution will serve to make water a right for all people in Slovenia and will stop it from being commercialized.
The Guardian reports that the newest amendment states:
“Water resources represent a public good that is managed by the state. Water resources are primary and durably used to supply citizens with potable water and households with water and, in this sense, are not a market commodity.“ Continue reading Slovenia Adds Water To Constitution As Fundamental Right For All People
Solar power and water desalination are two of the most important things to lock down in the modern age. Produces an endless source of drinking water and electricity is what we need to guide us through the unknowns of a changing climate.
This is why an incredible project like The Pipe needs global attention.
The machine can generate 10,000 MWh each year and additionally turn 4.5 billion liters (or 1.5 billion gallons) of salt water into drinking water in that time. Continue reading Solar-Powered Pipe Desalinates 1.5 billion Gallons of Drinking Water a Year for California

How is water and consciousness tied together and related to humans and plants? One of the original pioneers in water consciousness studies, Dr. Marcel Vogel, determined that when bulk water was in the process of freezing, excess energy is extracted from the water.
At this point, the molecules start to spin and link together in the pattern of a tetrahedron.

Adding to the evidence that backs many U.S. communities’ decisions to end water fluoridation, a recent study has found that fluoride within our water supply may be fueling thyroid issues experienced by millions of Americans, leading to depression and more.
After analyzing 98% of GP practices in England, the study found specifically that rates of hypothyroidism (an underactive thyroid) were 30% more likely in areas that fluoridated their water. In the study, it equated to approximately 15,000 needlessly suffering from the ailment. Continue reading Research Exposes How our Water is Making us Depressed, Sick
The Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE) is urging coordinated action to reduce the amount of hidden water used in food and drink production – estimated at up to 1.8 million litres per person every year equivalent to an Olympic size swimming pool.
Each person consumes between 2,000-5,000 litres of water embedded in their food, every day – or between 730,000-1,825,000 million litres annually. Continue reading Why We Need To Reduce Our “Hidden Water” Usage
