The first human beings created settlements with close proximity to rivers and lakes. Fresh water was key to survival.
California is presently experiencing a three-year drought. It has not rained this year at all here in Southern California, and we are currently enjoying warm Santa Ana conditions with no likelihood of rain for several weeks. Water reserves are low and there is likely to be water rationing later this year if there is no rain or snow in the mountains. Perhaps with the rest of North America experiencing extreme cold and storms there is not much sympathy for Californians, but the possible shortage of water could become a serious issue not just for California but other areas throughout the world within the next several decades. Many pundits have opined that the real wars of the future will be over water rights, not oil and gas.
In thinking about water I connect with the wonderful beach walks I take almost daily. The ocean seems vast and limitless. It is not. We have found ways to pollute our oceans and their viability is not assured either.
Just this week we published as an e-book, THE DOLPHIN LETTERS: VITAL MESSAGES FROM SEA TO LAND by Muriel Lindsay. Muriel has spent several decades living close to dolphins and has developed a telepathic relationship with the dolphins who have communicated this book to her. Not everyone is going to take seriously the contention that these are in fact letters from actual dolphins, but I believe they are. And, more importantly, I believe that the messages are indeed vital to the survival of our species. Dolphins have been on our planet a lot longer than humans and they understand both the nature of water and the nature of life. I have sent this manuscript to several noted scientists for their views on the messages conveyed in these dolphin letters, and the responses have been laudatory and provocative. (more…)
