Billions in Change

There are 7 billion of us in the world today and we are facing some huge problems, but talk alone doesn’t help someone escape from poverty, awareness doesn’t reduce pollution, or grow food, or heal the sick, that takes doing and Manoj Bhargava, the billionaire CEO of 5-Hour Energy drinks has decided to put his money towards the cause in order to better the world we live in. Bhargava is investing 99% of his money back into humanity, he has set up a facility and hired some of the brightest minds to work on groundbreaking technologies that he hopes will help solve some of the worlds biggest problems, these include, energy, fresh water and health. Bhargava is driven by the fact that the work is never done and to him, it’s not about the money.

      well, good question, but think on this:
      when you flush the toilet and when you take a bath, a shower, etc, all the water we use goes to the water waste treatment centers. It gets chemically treated and then we use it again. In London they recycle the water about 12 times before they finally dump it out. In New York the same thing, etc.
      Now, because of our cities (paved roads and sidewalks, when it rains, the ground doesn’t absorb any water. It goes straight to the sewer plant, or into the ocean.
      If we consider that the weather patters (rain, snow, etc) continue as presently are, the planet will continue to be replenishing itself with all the water we need, through the cycle of evaporation, rain, re-evaporation, etc.
      Unless of course we totally destroy the upper layers of our atmosphere, in which case the weather patterns change, the earth get scorched by the intense heat, in which case, we might as well all be dead by then :)

    Globally, around 1.1 billion people still do not have access to electricity. About 2.9 billion use solid fuels — wood, charcoal, coal, and dung — for cooking and heating.
