Michelle Obama is hocking a new initiative to make our nation healthier. This program is called the Partnership for a Healthier America (PHA) and her first order of business is to encourage more Americans to drink more water.
Obama stated: “Since we started the Let’s Move! initiative , I’ve been looking for as many ways as possible to help families and kids lead healthier lives. I’ve come to realize that if we were going to take just one step to make ourselves and our families healthier, probably the single best thing we could do is to simply drink more water. That’s it – it’s really that simple. Drink just one more glass of water a day and you can make a real difference for your health, your energy, and the way you feel. So Drink Up and see for yourself.”
Partners of the PHA include:
• Birds Eye
• Blue Cross/Blue Shield
• General Electric Healthcare
• Henry Ford Health System
• New Horizon Academy
In 2009, the demand for bottled water began to decline . Environmental concern about reducing waste has created a market for reusable bottles; thereby making throw-away bottles an affront to the preservation of our planet.
Food and Water Watch (FWW) states that bottled water produces 1.5 million tons of plastic waste annually. Bottles for water also require 47 million gallons of oil per year to produce.
The health benefits of bottle water lay largely in the hands of the manufacturer because of a loophole in the regulatory oversight of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Because 70% of bottled water does not cross state lines for sale in retail, the product is exempt from FDA oversight.
There is an estimated 366 million, trillion gallons of water on planet Earth. That number appears to be fixed, according to UNESCO’s Intergovernmental Council of the International Hydrological Program (HIP). The alarmist threat of man-made climate change states that where and how this water manifests itself in hydraulic flux across our biosphere is questionable.
The HIP are a UN program system devoted to researching and finding natural water resources and managing those resources found. While the UN is well aware that the necessity of water as a vital source for life means the retention of power over all life, they are well into their schemes to develop global governance over all sources of fresh, clean water.
The IPCC document HS 15332 Climate Change Impacts: Securitization of Water, Food, Soil, Health, Energy and Migration explains how the UN plans to secure resources to use at their disposal. Through the International Monetary Fund (IMF) under-developed countries are forced to sell their resources to the global Elite as “full cost recovery” to the global central bankers. Once those resources are under the complete control of the IMF they become assets to be reallocated back to the enslaved nations for a price.
This scheme makes water sources under central privatization cost more and become less accessible to those who desperately need it. Water prices rise while the quality of it diminishes. This forces natives in places like South Africa and India to collect water from polluted streams and rivers, which compromises their health. The cycle in complete when those who had their water stolen from them through coercion die from contaminated water that they were forced to use.
A NASA study claims that after reviewing 7 years of drought in parts of the Middle East, and poor management combined with increasing demands for ground water have led to an exorbitant amount of water loss in the region.
As part of the NASA Gravity Recovery and Climate Expert (GRACE) researchers surmised that Turkey, Syria, Iraq and Iran are losing massive amounts of fresh groundwater at astronomical rates. An estimated 60% has been pumped out of reservoirs and wells while lakes are in consistent decline.
According to the study: “This rate of water loss is among the largest liquid freshwater losses on the continents.”
Climate change and overpopulation are being blamed as these countries face coming water shortages. The increasing poverty in the region poses critical problems to the Middle East and North Africa. Droughts caused by man-made climate change are expected to become more extreme according to alarmist scientists working with the UN.
Kate Voss, lead author of the study and a water policy fellow with the University of California’s Center for Hydrological Modeling, claims: “That decline in stream flow put a lot of pressure on northern Iraq. Both the UN and anecdotal reports from area residents note that once stream flow declined, this northern region of Iraq had to switch to groundwater. In an already fragile social, economic and political environment, this did not help the situation.”
At the High-Level International Conference on Water Cooperation (ICWC) conference , entitled “Water in the Anthropocene” states that humanity’s impact on freshwater resources were assessed and it was determined that a 3rd of the estimated 7 billion people on earth have limited access to clean water.
Millions if individual local humans affect the regional, continental and global water cycles which facilitates a drastic shortage and untold damage of aquatic ecosystems.
The document stated: “In the short span of one or two generations, the majority of the nine billion people on Earth will be living under the handicap of severe pressure on fresh water.”
Human populations utilize water resources the equivalent of the size of South Africa to tend to the needs of crops.
Another Africa-sized amount of water is used on the care of livestock.
Fresh water makes up 2.5% of the total water supplies across the planet. It is estimated that 70% of it is snow and ice-pack.
The document says that because of the impact of man on the planet, the earth’s chemistry and climate have been altered which has evidenced itself in the measureable hydrological cycles of the planet.
