"Three primary ways that the human population decreases significantly every year is death caused by starvation and malnutrition (including lack of drinkable water) at between seven to eight million people, diseases that kill between two to three million (with mounting threats of infectious diseases becoming pandemics) and upwards of near a half million dying each year from war.

Now that's what I'm talkin' about!

DebbyBruck's curator insight, March 25, 2015 11:51 PM

What's not to like about Warka Water towers?  They could also be extremely helpful in the future for preppers, for California (estimatedly due to run out of water in about a year), and places like the Southwest that are experiencing harsh droughts.  Those not experiencing drought could also benefit - harvesting water is much like harvesting energy from wind or the sun - it's natural and it's free (other than cost for the invention.)  Warka Water towers are affordable, made from bio-degradable materials and potentially life-saving for humanity around the globe. Warka Towers appear to deserve a Golden award from anyone seriously interested in acknowledging this visionary and promising invention & it's creator and the ethical ones who would promote it to help humanity. So.... it begs the queston:  Which would YOU rather invest in, if need be, and WHICH WATER would YOU prefer to drink?
