Dams Displace People and Destroy Ecosystems
Even if you’re educated about the negative impacts of bottled water, you
may not be aware of the problems dams have posed for the environment and
local communities. Dams have displaced millions of people worldwide over the
past century. The promises made to people in order to persuade them to move
so that a dam can be built are rarely kept, leaving people without food or
crops or any means of survival, and without legal recourse.
Dams also disturb the balance of an ecosystem that took thousands of
years to evolve. When a river is dammed, organic matter that ordinarily flows
downstream to nourish many forms of life gets trapped behind the dam and
begins to rot. This not only disturbs the downstream ecosystem, but the
rotting matter releases methane into the atmosphere, one of the primary
greenhouse gases that is accumulating too rapidly.
So what is the answer to the water crisis?
It boils down to conservation and decentralization. We need to employ
small water harvesting structures that can serve people at the community
level, instead of massive dams and pipelines that are costly to build and
maintain. We already have natural disinfection technology, and it’s
surprisingly cost effective. Water can’t be treated like a commodity. Every
human being should have access to clean water, regardless of socioeconomic
status or geography.
Fresh Water for Only PENNIES Per Person
The United Nations estimates it would cost an additional 30 billion
dollars per year to provide clean drinking water to every person on the
planet. Sounds like a lot of money until you consider we spent three times
that amount on bottled water last year alone! Lawrence Berkeley National
Laboratory Senior Scientist Ashok Gadgill said the annual cost of providing
10 liters of clean drinking water to every human being, every day, is just $6
USD. You do the math. That’s less than two cents per day. Imagine how illness
and death rates would fall!
Clean water has saved far more lives than vaccines7. Every year, diarrhea
causes two million deaths, and 1.5 million of those victims are children.8
According to Unicef,9 bad water kills 4,000 children per day. It costs $20
million to vaccinate those 1.5 million children against rotavirus so that
they don’t develop the diarrhea that can kill them.
On the flip side, the same amount of money – $20 million – is enough to
provide wells, clean water and irrigation pumps to 100 million families. If
you figure each family has a father, mother and two children, that means with
the same investment it takes to vaccinate 1.5 million children for rotavirus,
you can provide clean water to 400 million individuals, which will also help
prevent other enteric diseases such as cholera and polio. At the same time,
it will irrigate their crops and essentially lift those families out of
If instead you only vaccinate the children in that 400 million, you're
spending $2.8 billion just on rotavirus vaccines alone. Nor will they have
clean water, wells, or a means to financial freedom. In addition to clean
water, lack of sanitation and basic hygiene education are problems that must
also be addressed if we are to help children around the world.10
Bill Gates Pushes Vaccines, Instead of Safe Water and Sanitation
You might think the world’s top philanthropists would jump at the
opportunity to improve the health of their fellow humans by funding clean
drinking water and sanitation projects. But the big money is not going toward
clean water – instead, it’s going into the pockets of big industries, such as
the pharmaceutical industry. Even vaccine magnate GlaxoSmithKline admitted to
the WHO11 that safe drinking water has a greater impact on reducing mortality
rates than vaccines and antibiotics, but that’s more lip service than action.
For example, Bill Gates, the biggest philanthropist in the world,
continues to channel his billions into vaccines. It’s tragic when you realize
clean water and hygiene education are far more effective at reducing the
spread of disease than any vaccination campaign.
The latest example is Gates’ African malaria vaccine campaign, which has
been an abysmal flop.12 Despite this, he continues to push vaccines. It’s
pretty clear where Mr. Gates' loyalties lie. But is this really a surprise,
coming from a man who suggested vaccines could be a means of reducing Earth’s
population by 10 to 15 percent? Gates unabashedly proposed this idea as a way
to reduce global carbon dioxide emissions during a Ted presentation in
February 2010.13 When philanthropy fails, it’s time to effect change at the
local level. In the words of Wenonah Hauter, Executive Director of Food and
