America’s Water Crisis: Now In Cinemas

Posted by: Rhona Reid On January 16, 2020 2:56 pm

In polarizing times, it can be good to have things that bring us together. But not always.

There’s a common characteristic that tens – possibly hundreds – of millions of Americans share: our drinking water is contaminated with carcinogenic PFAS (Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances).

Will Hollywood help to get the word out about the Water Crisis?

The statistics are mind-boggling. While officials and politicians attempt to oscillate between publicly minimizing the risk and attempting to deal with it, more Americans carry on drinking contaminated water.

Anyway, when the busy server reached my table he thoughtfully placed a glass of water down in front of me.  I raised it to my lips and was about to take a sip when he said, “You probably shouldn’t drink that.”  I stopped an inch short of my mouth.  Frozen, I asked, “Why

Tyent Ionized Alkaline Water Purifiers-Doing the Dirty Work

 

 

Dirty sink    Much has been written lately on the subject of water.  Water not only covers most of the Earth, it now covers much of the news.

One would be hard pressed to pick up a newspaper or to watch television without seeing a story involving water in some capacity.

 

With rain, droughts, floods, pollution, mudslides, chemical spills, bans, and more, water is the trending topic these days.  According to the website 247wallst.com, ten cities in California are on the brink of running out of water altogether.  The effects this potential disaster will have on commerce in these cities and across the country are immeasurable.
