Conserving as Well as Cleaning Our Water of Hazardous Chemicals

· Commenting

Developing countries continue to succumb to economic pressures of dictators at various levels of government for short-term, unsound profiteering and continue to cut down more and more forests that provide habitat for many dynamic species, a mild climate and protection from harsh sun rays and strong winds as well as oxygen for improved human health and rich, fertile soil to grow crops.

Water-volume regulators that attach to the tap of faucets are a welcome addition to the fight of conservationists to conserve water as they regulate tap consumption to mist unless programmed otherwise and significantly reduce water consumption by as much as 95 percent.

Vegetables, hands, dishes, etc. may be rinsed with mist, e.g., as a default rather than an entirely open tap faucet to better conserve our drinking water as we work to improve its quality.

According to recent UN data, in 2018 alone more than 1.6 million people died tragically from chemical poisoning. Among other things, sound and increasingly sustainable gardening and agriculture practices using organically certified methods would reduce this number as well as improve the quality and our food and correspondingly our health as well.

That 120 countries could not agree with the standards on chemistry in industrial production as they relate to human health has been tragic. The global chemical industry is estimated to be worth approximately USD 5 trillion. Leaders of democratic nations that have agreed with the standard protocols to regulate hazardous chemicals, including in industry, need to work harder to gain agreement from these dangerous countries that will with effort and time face fair and judicial consequences for the harm they cause to us all.

HR 89 only recently introduced in the lower house of Congress takes important steps to address measuring, monitoring and properly documenting sound scientific facts to assess and to represent the harm of chemicals to human health.

The bill should be accelerated into law as soon as possible to improve more dynamic and representative assessments of growing risks to human health. Data is the very foundation of our defense moving forward with smart policy solutions to our problems.
