sean black commented on Clean water for all

Hi Will,

Thank you for the feedback.

This article is certainly news to me and i wonder how long it has been known about and what we propose to do with this new found resource. I think this may go down the political road.

Maybe i should do more research on this but from the article, it would seem these aquifers were last filled up 5,000 years ago so i am not sure it could be sustainable per se.

You are correct, Western money would be used whether directly or indirectly ( we buy oil and other commodities from Africa) in the form of price increases. Thinking on the spot here, FIFA and NFL are non-profit companies ( even though they make a fortune) that have large demographics from the black community. Maybe something could be done with them for financing.

By the way, good to hear from a fellow Brit, i've just move to the US to study.

Let me know your thoughts.
