Cradle of Humankind
Africa and the Middle-East is looked upon as the human crib. The very first culture of humans. Later on high human society evolved in those areas, we can learn a lot by history, and unfortunately like the planet Tellus, we are repeating the yards all over, again and again.
Once upon a time there was lots of cities (Atlantis (Platon myth?) , Herakleion, Canopus, Menouthis, etcetera) that has sunken and a few of them has now been found at from 6 to 10 meters under present sea level. Cities that have been lost for 2500-1600 years. Cities that at that time had advanced water- and sewerage systems. High standards didn't help against earthquakes, floods and tsunamis, the cities close to the seas and rivers fell down and was buried in water depths.
Throughout history clean water has been a source to conflict between people and nations. We know about ancient wars and conflicts around the Nile, the Euphrates and the Tigris, rivers that supplied the citizens with clean water back then. Conflicts that forced a huge amount of people to become water refugees. Because without access to the rivers, there is neither water to drink, nor opportunities for irrigation of plants to eat.
The Crib as The Undeveloped
Today there is no respect for our common cradle. Problems in Africa and the Middle-East are not "ours", we close our borders for water refugees and refugees from other kinds of conflicts, like oil or religions, we will not share what we got today ... the day will come. We like to explain it through "their" politic, but it is all about land with water!
Rising Sea Level
The fast changing eco-system due to a combination of forest desecration, pollution and global warming has impact on weather and ground movements. Cities are falling down in rivers and seas, the ice are melting and the clean water are becoming to salty to drink. The scenario for the future might be civil wars all over the world due to lack of clean water.
Water a Human Right?!?
- During the 10 years the water conflict in Darfur (Sudan) has been going on, over 2 million people has become water refugees, still we give them a cold hand or sink their boats, when they arrive at our borders in Europe. Deaths due to this water conflict is estimated to around 300 000, probably much more.
- The flood in Pakistan affected 20,2 million people, 1,9 million homes/house was destroyed, 2,2 million hectares of agricultural land was damaged. 1,4 million Pakistan water refugees are living in camps.
- Coca Cola and Nestle amongst other companies are emptying clean water-supplies in India, Africa and USA in order to sell the water to us tapped in plastic bottles with Bis-phenol A, giving poison to one - taking clean water from other in the name of capitalistic thinking.
