We Are the World Blogfest #WATWB

It’s the last Friday of the month–time again for some good news to take you into September with a smile.

The story I’ve chosen for this month is one that involves experimental technology that can take water droplets from the air and turn them into potable water. The process uses electrospun polymers–and who among us doesn’t love those??

Click here to read the story.

Here’s how #WATWB works: On the last Friday of each month a number of bloggers participate in a blog hop in which each blogger highlights a story that spreads good news, happiness, and hope.

These are the cohosts for this month: Simon Falk, Andrea Michaels, Shilpa Garg, Sylvia Stein, and Belinda Witenhausen.

  3. Excellent post – this is what science is all about!!! Make it so.
    On another matter, I received your great newsletter (I don’t think I can comment on/to the newsletter). Your cover reveal is fabulous, and I’ve pre-ordered the e-book. Whoo Hoo for YOU!

  4. This needs to happen: potable water is a desperate need in many parts of the world, and will become a future source of conflict. Thanks for sharing this!

      That’s right–water is an immediate concern for millions of people, and lack of clean water leads to so much conflict. I hope this project gets the necessary funding to make it a reality. Thanks for stopping by!

      Wouldn’t that be great? Most of us in the US don’t have to worry about clean water (though there are big exceptions), so it’s hard to imagine not having access to clean water. It would be a blessing if more people around the world had access to something we just take for granted. I hope you enjoy your weekend, too!

        It is, and that’s scary. I think we in the US have a tendency to take things like clean water for granted, and for drought-stricken areas in the US, lack of clean water is becoming closer and closer to being a reality for them. I like to highlight conservation stories in my #WATWB posts because there are things we can do as individuals to save resources. As I said in a previous reply, I hope this project gets the funding necessary to make these backpacks a reality. Thanks for dropping by!

      • I read a book a couple of years ago called “I Call Myself Earth Girl.” It’s an ecofiction book by an indie author who I met through blogging. In the book the author extrapolates into the near future and tells the story of a United States with water shortages through the eyes of an unusual child. Mainstream SF author Paolo Bacigalupi also writes about water wars in the US Southwest in his recent book, The Water Knife. It’s extremely dystopian. Thanks for highlighting potential positive solutions!

        My pleasure. I’ll have to check out those books, though they sound more like horror. 😦

    Very interesting article and how great will it be when it all comes to fruition. Such a great way to have drinkable water where water is scarce.

      I just love the idea that people who lack fresh drinking water can possibly look forward to a solution that is lightweight and hopefully doesn’t cost too much. Thanks for reading!
