Comments Off on Rain Water Harvest System With A First Flush

The couple of days I got home before dark I was able to do some work on the rain water harvesting system.   Even though I had one in place, it was a make shift system and I was loosing many, many gallons of water every time it rained. Plus I did not have a “First Flush” system in place to catch the contaminates before it dumped into the tanks.   What contaminates you ask, after all it’s clean rain water right?   My house like most is an asphalt shingled roof and every time it rains some of the particles from the shingles wash off into the gutter making their way to the bottom of the storage tanks. Plus […]

Comments Off on Water Survival

A human can survive a maximum of 3 days without the intake of water, assuming you are at sea level, at room temperature, and a relative humidity. Depending on the climate conditions, it has been recorded that people have lasted longer than two weeks with no water supply. In cold temperatures water is still very important and requires the same 3.78L (1 gal) of water per day. In snow conditions snow must be melted first. A lack of water causes dehydration, resulting in lethargy, headaches, dizziness, confusion, and eventually death. Even mild dehydration reduces endurance and impairs concentration, which is dangerous in a survival situation where clear thinking is essential. Your body requires 3.78L (1 Gal) to 6L of water […]

Comments Off on Water and the War on Terror

http://www.grist.org/article/2010-03-02-water-and-the-war-on-terror/   The terror-ble, horrible, no good, very bad freshwater crisis While leaders in Washington have been war-gaming the national security risks of climate change, they’ve only started to connect the dots to the closely related threats emanating from the growing crisis of global freshwater scarcity. At first blush, water and national security may not seem to be interlinked. But the reality, as narrated in my new book WATER: The Epic Struggle for Wealth, Power, and Civilization, is that the unfolding global water crisis increasingly influences the outcome of America’s two wars, homeland defense against international terrorism, and other key U.S.national-security interests, including the transforming planetary environment and world Geo-political order.   Former U.N. Secretary-General Boutros Boutros-Ghali famously predicted 25 […]
