Water pollution and shortage of fresh water emerge as most important water-related issues

STOCKHOLM – A comprehensive global public opinion survey on attitudes about fresh water sustainability, management and conservation finds that people around the world view water issues as the planet’s top environmental problem, greater than air pollution, depletion of natural resources, and loss of habitat and climate change.

The poll surveyed 1,000 people in each of 15 countries, and probed 500 in each of the following countries on specific questions: Canada, China, India, Mexico, Russia, the United Kingdom and the United States. The results were released today in Stockholm as part of World Water Week. The independent survey was commissioned by Circle of Blue, the Michigan-based international network of leading journalists, scientists and communicators focused on global water issues. Molson Coors Brewing Company (NYSE: TAP) supported the research, which was conducted by GlobeScan, a global survey research firm.
Full Story:

According to Dave LeMoine, Vice President of Business Development, of Wescorp Energy Inc. (OTCBB: WSCE),
“The oil and gas industry knows of the term “Peak oil” as production increases, the new term may be “Peak water” let me explain more, it is well known that as fresh water becomes more scarce with global population growth, increasing standards of living in developing countries, and rapid industrialization, and global oil and gas producing companies licensing and consuming a higher degree of fresh water, the reuse of “produced water” is becoming more attractive to the oil and gas industry. Wescorp’s oil water separations technologies H20 Maxx can be the complement to helping producers reuse recycle their produced water. Our technology provides the producers with hydrocarbon free water, this water can play a significant role in providing this renewable resource to increase oil production through injection, or further treatment for other purposes, for example direct discharge in off shore production, recycling frac fluids.”
