Transcript of Scrapbook #2
I simply use a reusable durable container to store my water when I’m on the go.
The fountains are overrated, however they do an excellent job of hydrating individuals.
I belive that it is more affordable to use accessible water rather than paying for a random brand which sells tap water. I agree that bottle water are simply a fashion statetement and they are simply marketing tools used by the companies.
To an extent, the rich countries have free or cheap and clean water as opposed to the third world countries who have the opposite. It is simply so because those developing nations cant withdraw companies like SUEZ out of polluting their lands. This human right crisis of attacking one of man’s basic needs is “taken into consideration” by allowing the communities an access to fresh water. The downside is that the water has a price and the citizens can’t afford it!! IS IT ETHICAL TO COMMODIFY WATER? No it is definatly not ethical. A commodity being something you can buy or self by creating a supply and a demand versus a common being a resource that is collectively owned or shared by the population, a basic common sense would place water being one crucial human need as a common. Doing the opposite, which is happening right now, is privatising something that belongs to earth for a profit instead of the health of thousands of citizens. RUNNING OUT OF FRESH WATER CONSEQUENTIALISM vs DEONTOLOGY In the third world, lack of potable water increase the death of youth due to disease water contaminationDaily chemicals from medicines, drugs, pesticides or other pharmaceutical products is being recycled in our sewer systems than hurting us.Fishes or other living beings in the water sources tend to change sex overthrowing the natural balance and food chain.
WATER CARTELS EGOISM The major corporations exploiting and privatizing water around the world. They are THAMES WATER, VIVENDI, SUEZ and NESTLE.
With the help of the World Bank, they forced Bolivia to privatize their water, causing trouble and revolt across the area.
They installed prepaid English meters to buy and purchase water in Africa. The problem is the citizens don’t understand the language and can’t afford the water meter.
Nestle leveled down a local Michigan stream illegally by pumping up thousands of gallons a day. When the municipality tried to put a stop at it, they intimidated the citizens.
In the Indian area, some municipality used an ancient method of trapping the rainwater and creating water wells. They provided local jobs for the citizens, potable water, water for agriculture or to grow greenery. The Bolivia government returned the privatized water by Suez back to the community in 2007 by ending their contract. In another side of the world, some engineers invented a UV device capable of filtering the rainwater or non-potable water to give back to the community. They also provided local jobs and free public water. PERSONAL RESPONSABILITY UNIVERSALISM The water is not filtered, therefore contains some bacteria causing it to be non-potable. It should be done locally by the community for the locality. It should be public and free. It a price needs to be put on, make sure that the citizens can pay it. WHAT IS MY IMPACT IN ALL OF THIS CONTEXT INVEST IN PUBLIC WATER
DRINK IN THE FOUNTAINS
DRINK TAP WATER
BOYCOTT BOTTLE WATER IN MY CASE, IT IS A GOOD START SINCE I AM ALREADY INVOLVE IN A MAJORITY OF THOSE REAL SOLUTIONS.
