ARTivism: Symposium Calling for Science & Art to Engage Climate NOW

Per Gabriele Schubert (Environmental Grants Researcher and Writer): “HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY 2015 TO MY FAVORITE ‪#‎ARTIVISTS‬ AND ‪#‎SUSTAINABILITY‬ EXPERTS WHO CONNECTED AT THE Centro Cultural de la Raza IN SUPPORT OF UCSD’S RENOWNED CLIMATE SCIENTIST, Professor Richard Somerville’s CALL TO #ARTIVISTS TO STOP CLIMATE CHANGE. *Since the Centro is in the former water towers of the City of San Diego, this ‪#‎ARTivist‬ event featured EcoloBlue and other innovative tech to ‪#‎MakeWaterFromAir‬! –which amazed even Dr. Somerville and his wife Mrs. Silvia Somerville, as well as SD Sustainability Director Jacques Chirazi (in the blue shirt). It was a LOT of Fun, as Professor Marianne Luna Peterson is documenting.” LINK

Dr. Richard Somerville and everyone at the Centro Cultural de la Raza, loved EcoloBlue’s great-tasting cold water!”

At right, world-renowned climate scientist Dr. Richard Somerville! is jazzed to learned about this cool tech to help us all during global warming!! He was especially happy to learn that CO2 was not emitted to deliver this water, but that instead, that this EcoloBlue machine makes 4-8 gallons of WATER FROM AIR, per DAY!!!”

Why does my Water Production vary? Relative Humidity, Absolute Humidity and Dew Point.

SRI sci-tech TWEETS – KID’s Sci-Tech Blog


We have customers that ask periodically why their water production declines in the Winter. While your humidity level (RH%) may stay in a similar range to what it was in previous months, the temperature will have an effect on the actual moisture in the air. You should also be looking at your dew point averages to get a better understanding in the fluctuation in the high and low moisture levels. The website weatherspark.com is a great starting point. Find the closest location to you, and view the Humidity and Dew Point charts.

Absolute Humidity is another major factor, as it is defined as the amount of water vapor present in a unit volume of air, usually expressed in grams per cubic meter. This would be a more accurate measurement of how much available moisture there is in the air, that your machine will be able to condense and collect.

EcoloBlue‘s machines are designed to still be able to produce some water in times of low moisture. However, when your regional location goes on the drier side, that is the beauty of EcoloBlue’s machines being hybrid units. Not only can they create water from the air when you are experiencing great humid air, you can also hook up your machine to municipal water during the drier times. While it is some people’s preference not to do that, you can be assured that EcoloBlue’s 12 stage filtration process, is removing all of the unwanted particles in your water.

Below are a couple links to explain all of this information further.

Should I Drink Seltzer Water? EcoloBlue says Yes!

5/5 experts say yes.

Seltzer—also known as bubbly water, carbonated water, soda water and sparkling water—comes with as almost as many health myths as it does names. Does it leach calcium from bones? Or destroy the enamel of teeth? Will water plus carbon dioxide equal certain death?

You’re in luck. Seltzer is one of the rare instances where something you love drinking isn’t bad for you. All of our experts say bottoms up to bubbles.

Most obviously, seltzer’s a great soda alternative, since it lacks the calories and sugar of sweetened carbonated drinks. Switching to unsweetened bubbles is a healthy step for anyone, says Laureen Smith, PhD, RN, associate professor at the Ohio State University College of Nursing, who’s studied how to get kids to stop drinking sugary sodas. “For those who choose carbonated sodas, it may provide the sought-after carbonation without the sugar,” she says.

SOURCE

And then it’s even better if it’s carbonated water made from the air, using one of EcoloBlue’s patented EB30s Soda machines. Not only is the water 99.9% pure, you also can save your wallet and save the planet by not going out and buying bottles of sparkling water and soda. Make your own at home, and flavor as you like.

2015 California Water Laws

January 1 is a traditional day on which new laws approved by the California legislature go into effect, and the Lege passed a whole lot of laws in 2014. As a fourth severe drought year looms, it’s no surprise that a lot of those laws pertain to water. We’ve described the most important here.

AB 148: Salton Sea Restoration
As written when first introduced, this law would have authorized feasibility studies to fund Salton Sea restoration efforts through developing the region’s geothermal and solar energy resources. Those provisions were stripped out of the bill, which now merely adjusts agency responsibility for the long-delayed restoration of the Salton Sea.

AB 2100 and AB 2104: HOA lawns fines
AB 2100 is an emergency measure that went into effect as soon as it was passed in February: Homeowners associations can no longer legally fine members for letting their lawns or other landscaping die in order to save water. AB 2104 clarifies the state law that allows HOAs, saying that they can’t legally forbid replacing lawns with more water-conserving plants.

SB 1168, SB 1319, and AB 1739: Groundwater Management
Until this last drought year, California had some of the least-stringent groundwater regulations in the country. A trio of bills passed in the last legislative session starts to change that. SB 1168 proclaims the state’s interest in regulating groundwater sustainably, creating local groundwater sustainability agencies and specifying that existing agencies now tracking groundwater reservoirs consider the effects of their use on surface water such as streams and lakes. Sb 1319 allows the state to classify individual groundwater basins according to the degree of their depletion, and to single out “probationary” basins that are severely overdrafted. AB 1739 allows the above-mentioned groundwater sustainability agencies to assess fees of water users, as well as fines on those who continue to overdraft groundwater in probationary basins.
