Hydrogen is supposed the most plentiful element in the universe. This is the stuff, which feeds our sun. Water consists of two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom.
Without water life, as we know it, would not be possible. Certainly human beings, which are made of about 70 percent water, could not live. A human being can only survive for a couple of days without water. Only oxygen is more important! Only minutes without it and the human dies or gets the brain damaged.
About 70 percent of the surface of the earth are oceans. Even more areas of the earth are cover by sweet water, if the lakes, rivers and glaciers are taken into account. Water is also, as vapor, in the air and is felt as humidity and can be seen as clouds.

Despite all the water on earth, water fit for consumption by human beings is only about 1% of the fresh water and only 0.007% of all the water on earth. While world Population grows the amount of potable water remains the same or diminishes, because of pollution, Climate Change and the incisions of human beings in nature. The Water Peak will reach new heights!

One of the solutions offered by technology is to Desalinate water and so produce potable water. Contrary to what Nesseq suggests, the TOTEM System, the Reverse Osmosis technology is preferred. Although this technology demands a lot of energy and the potable water would be a by product of the TOTEM System.

All this is a matter for discussion. What is difficult to understand is, why water is becoming a economical commodity. Water is being sold in bottles in supermarkets. In the developed countries water from all over the world can be bought in bottles. Just like wine, which is produced in Chile and is sold in Europe. The problem is, that the Water Balance of the areas from which the water originates is getting disturbed. The water is being shipped off to far away countries. Water is added where it does not belong and this besides the fact that the whole process demands much energy. Not enough with this, all the plastic bottles are after their use just an addition to the garbage!

For such a banal product as potable water, which should be accessible in highest quality to every person in this world!

A after thought, could the next step be, that oxygen will be sold in bottles in supermarkets?

    Bottled water is healthy water or so marketers would have us believe. Just look at the labels or the bottled water ads: deep, pristine pools of spring water; majestic alpine peaks; healthy, active people gulping down icy bottled water between biking in the park and a trip to the yoga studio.

    In reality, bottled water is just water. That fact isn’t stopping people from buying a lot of it. Estimates variously place worldwide bottled water sales at between $50 and $100 billion each year, with the market expanding at the startling annual rate of 7 percent.

    Bottled water is big business. But in terms of sustainability, bottled water is a dry well. It’s costly, wasteful and distracts from the brass ring of public health: the construction and maintenance of safe municipal water systems.

    Hi there! Is it okay if I go a bit off topic? I am trying to read your domain on my iPad but it doesn’t display properly, do you have any suggestions? Thanks in advance! Nadia

      Hi Nadia,
      I’m sorry that your iPad does not display my website. But I really don’t know what to do. On my Nokia it works and on the iPhone of a friend it does as well. Perhaps you have to do something in the settings of your machine.
      Anyway, thanks a lot,
