Earth’s Water Cycle Intensifying



Earth’s Water Cycle Is Intensifying, Dry Is Getting Drier and Wet Is Getting Wetter (via Planetsave)

  The Earth’s water cycle is intensifying, leading to more evaporation in dry climates and more rain in wet climates. “A clear change in salinity has been detected in the world’s oceans, signalling shifts and an acceleration in the global rainfall and evaporation cycle.” A new study just published…

Vertical Farming



Vertical, Hydroponic Farming the Future of Farming? (via Clean Technica)

 This interesting piece below is on a topic we don’t cover much here on CleanTechnica — farming (in particular, vertical and hydroponic farming) — but it seems like a good fit once in awhile, and this is a great piece by Herman Trabish that a reader recommended, so figured I’d repost it (with…

Affordable Biofuel



Food Waste Could Create Hydrogen Fuel (via Gas 2.0)

The world of the 21st century faces some incredibly daunting challenges that, unless dealt with soon, may eventually reach the point of no return. Overpopulation, water shortages, and climate change is just some of the long list of problems facing the world. Researchers in the UK may have come up with…

1,400 miles on Nothing but Hydrogen



Hydrogen Hyundais Cross Europe, Longest Hydrogen Journey Ever (via Gas 2.0)

As an alternative to oil, hydrogen seems so promising, and yet so impossible. The only emissions from hydrogen fuel cells is water. Alas, the expense and lack of infrastructure mean they’re pretty much just a pipe dream for now. But over in Europe, two teams of drivers have driven hydrogen-powered…

Calculating Your Water Footprint



The Importance of Calculating Your Water Footprint (via sustainablog)

If you consider yourself eco-minded, then you’re probably comfortable bandying about words like carbon footprint, solar panels and electric cars. “Water footprint” should be part of your green vocabulary as well. Water shortages are hitting the headlines as summer creeps across North America,…

We and the Earth are largely made up of water – which can be changed with our thoughts!

Water…

The Earth is largely made up of it.
As are we…

And yet about it we know significantly little.

This is a picture of a water crystal after pronouncing the word LOVE to it. Isn’t it amassing?

Until the groundbreaking work of a pioneer Japanese researcher whose astonishing discovery about water, documented photographically, changed most of what we didn’t know…and led to a new consciousness of Earth’s most precious resource.

Dr. Masaru Emoto was born in Japan and is a graduate of the Yokohama Municipal University and the Open International University as a Doctor of Alternative Medicine. His photographs were first featured in his self-published books Messages from Water 1 and 2. The Hidden Messages in Water was first published in Japan, with over 400,000 copies sold internationally.

What has put Dr. Emoto at the forefront of the study of water is his proof that thoughts and feelings affect physical reality. By producing different focused intentions through written and spoken words and music and literally presenting it to the same water samples, the water appears to “change its expression”.

Essentially, Dr. Emoto captured water’s ‘expressions.’ He developed a technique using a very powerful microscope in a very cold room along with high-speed photography, to photograph newly formed crystals of frozen water samples. Not all water samples crystallize however. Water samples from extremely polluted rivers directly seem to express the ‘state’ the water is in.

Dr. Masaru Emoto discovered that crystals formed in frozen water reveal changes when specific, concentrated thoughts are directed toward them. He found that water from clear springs and water that has been exposed to loving words shows brilliant, complex, and colorful snowflake patterns. In contrast, polluted water, or water exposed to negative thoughts, forms incomplete, asymmetrical patterns with dull colors.

The implications of this research create a new awareness of how we can positively impact the earth and our personal health. The success of his books outside Japan has been remarkable. Dr. Emoto has been called to lecture around the world as a result and has conducted live experiments both in Japan and Europe as well as in the US to show how indeed our thoughts, attitudes, and emotions as humans deeply impact the environment.

How Water Works – do you know?

In its purest form, it’s odorless, nearly colorless and tasteless. It’s in your body, the food you eat and the beverages you drink. You use it to clean yourself, your clothes, your dishes, your car and everything else around you. You can travel on it or jump in it to cool off on hot summer days. Many of the products that you use every day contain it or were manufactured using it. All forms of life need it, and if they don’t get enough of it, they die. Political disputes have centered around it. In some places, it’s treasured and incredibly difficult to get. In others, it’s incredibly easy to get and then squandered. What substance is more necessary to our existence than any other? Water.
