English: THE SECRET OF WATER AS A BASIS FOR THE NEW EARTH. Healing the Water Cycle through the Creation of Water Retention Landscapes: http://www.tamera.org/fileadmin/PDF/WasserSymposium_en.pdf
“Water, energy and food are freely available for the whole of humankind!”
Dieter Duhm, from the Tamera Manifesto for a New Generation on Planet Earth.
I put this quote at the beginning of my speech because I want to ask you to see this vision
of a healed world as often and vividly as you can. We must not get accustomed to a state
where something that is actually self-evident appears to us as an unrealistic utopia. A world
in which all people have free access to enough water, energy and food is thoroughly feasible.
More than eighty years ago similar ideas were described by the Austrian Viktor Schauberger,
a brilliant water researcher, a pioneer and thought-leader of the highest level. Even then
he could foresee the global problems that we face today and he showed how they can be
solved. A key point in the solution is the right treatment of water. Therefore I would like to
address the issue of water in this lecture. Water is life – and where there is life there is also
nutrition and energy.
The years 2010 to 2020 were declared by the United Nations as the “Decade for Deserts and
the Fight Against Desertification”. Progressive desertification is currently one of the biggest
global problems. More than 40% of the global land-mass today is classified as dryland.
Also in Europe, for example here on the Iberian peninsula, the desertification process is
dramatic. One third of the land area of Spain has already transformed into dryland. But most
of these dry areas are located in the even poorer countries of our planet Earth. Billions of
people today have no access to good and fresh water. Even though we still try to push it
aside, we know that this is partly connected with our lifestyle in the industrialised countries,
which daily, hourly, minute by minute leads to a situation in other regions of the Earth where
children fall sick and die because of bad water, where humans fight over the last remaining
water and animals die of thirst. Water, which is essentially the source of life, is today the
cause of war, power-struggles, disease, and an incredible amount of suffering.
Therefore, the Bolivian President Evo Morales demanded in 2008 in his “Ten
Commandments to Save the Planet, Life and Humanity” that we deal with this global water
crisis and declare the access to water as a human right.
I fully go along with this demand. I am holding this speech so that all people and all animals
regain free access to good drinking water. For this, the idea of Water Retention Landscapes and "model universities" has been developed.
Thank you for your attention,
