When you think about it, does an animal that needs water but can't drink the vast majority of it really deserve to survive?

you’d hope if he can build a hadron collider he can figure out how to solve that conundrum

We are doing that now. White people aren't dying, so you may not have noticed.

You may want to read up on how five of the worlds most populous countries compete for the same water supply. Three of them have nukes and have been in violent conflicts in the recent past.

Quote:
In the mid-1970s, the average American child under the age of 5 had a blood lead level of 14 micrograms per deciliter. The good news is that by 2014 it had fallen dramatically, to 0.84 micrograms per deciliter, largely because of the banning of lead in paint and the phaseout of lead in gasoline, among other measures.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention now considers a blood lead level in children of 5 micrograms per deciliter and higher to be a “reference level.” This measure is intended to identify children at higher risk and set off communitywide prevention activities.

It does not suggest that a child needs medical treatment. In fact, the C.D.C. recommends medical treatment only for blood lead levels at or above 45 micrograms per deciliter. Not a single child in Flint tested this high.

Quote:
Moving [...] to examining actual blood lead levels in children, we found that levels did increase after the water switched over (from Detroit's municipal system to the Flint River) in 2014, but only by a modest 0.11 micrograms per deciliter. A similar increase of 0.12 micrograms per deciliter occurred randomly in 2010-11. It is not possible, statistically speaking, to distinguish the increase that occurred at the height of the contamination crisis from other random variations over the previous decade.

Quote:
For comparison, consider the fact that just 20 years ago, nearly 45 percent of young children in Michigan had blood lead levels above the current reference level. If we are to be consistent in the labeling of Flint children as “poisoned,” what are we to make of the average American who was a child in the 1970s or earlier? Answer: He has been poisoned and is brain-damaged. And poisoned with lead levels far above, and for a greater period, than those observed in Flint.

Quote:
In the case of Flint, even when taking into account the change in the water supply, the decrease in blood lead levels over the last 11 years has actually been a public health success. The Journal of Pediatrics study found that between 2006 and 2015, the percentage of Flint children testing above the reference level decreased substantially, to 3.7 percent from 11.8 percent.

It is therefore unfair and inaccurate to point a finger at Flint and repeatedly use the word “poisoned.” All it does is terrify the parents and community members here who truly believe there may be a “generation lost” in this city, when there is no scientific evidence to support this conclusion.

I'm guessing we'll pull out of Minute 319 agreement with Mexico very soon.

Want to get ahead of the game and make you and your descendants rich, like Apple rich?
Invest in water conversion tech now. There are companies already setting up to equip those countries who can pay for it for sea water converted to useable water.



Ps water is already the new oil. It’s being privatised and commodified all over the world as part of government strategy. (Hello Ireland).

It's where the population center of the world is Starship Troopers, so it's probably going to happen
