"So you think that money is the root of all evil?" said Francisco d'Aconia. "Have you ever asked what is the root of money?

Money is a tool of exchange, which can't exist unless there are goods produced and men able to produce them. Money is the material shape of the principle that men who wish to deal with one another must deal by trade and give value for value. Money is not the tool of the moochers, who claim your product by tears, or of the looters, who take it from you by force. Money is made possible only by the men who produce.

Is this what you consider evil?

-- Francisco d'Aconia, from Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand

På tide å fremme offentlig oppmerksomhet om dette store og viktige problemet, som kanskje er fullt på høyde med klimaspørsmål i viktighet !

Environmental Impact of Dihydrogen Monoxide
Due in part to its widespread use in industry, Dihydrogen Monoxide (DHMO) is involved in many environmental incidents each year. While most are unavoidable given current technology, there can be little doubt that the presence of DHMO in each significantly increases the negative impact to the environment.

Among the many commonly-sited DHMO-related environmental impacts are:

* DHMO contributes to global warming and the "Greenhouse Effect", and is one of the so-called "greenhouse gasses."

* DHMO is an "enabling component" of acid rain -- in the absence of sufficient quantities of DHMO, acid rain is not a problem.

* DHMO is a causative agent in most instances of soil erosion -- sufficiently high levels of DHMO exacerbate the negative effects of soil erosion.

* DHMO is present in high levels nearly every creek, stream, pond, river, lake and reservoir in the U.S. and around the world.

* Measurable levels of DHMO have been verified in ice samples taken from both the Arctic and Antarctic ice caps.

* Recent massive DHMO exposures have lead to the loss of life and destruction of property in California, the Mid-West, the Philippines, and a number of islands in the Caribbean, to name just a few.
* Research has shown that significant levels of DHMO were found in the devastating Indian Ocean tsunami in 2004 which killed 230,000 in Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia and elsewhere, making it the deadliest tsunami in recorded history.
* It is widely believed that the levee failures, flooding and the widespread destruction resulting from Hurricane Katrina along the U.S. Gulf Coast in 2005 were caused or exacerbated by excessive DHMO levels found in the Gulf of Mexico, along with other contributing factors.

Svært glad for at flere ser alvoret i dette. Media dekker over det faktum at hvert år dør mange nordmenn av å ufrivillig innhalere DHMO. Dette skjer særlig langs kysten, der DHMO-kjemikaliet er meget utbredt. Det sies også at mennesker som benytter seg av båt i kombinasjon med alkohol om sommeren er spesiellt utsatt for å ufrivillig innhalere en dødelig mengde DHMO. Spre budskapet!

Joda, we knew that. Det var poenget. Men tusenvis av masterstudenter og professorer visste det IKKE, og skrev under.
