Drinking Nasty Swamp Water (to save the world)

  • Published on Feb 15, 2019
  • While I'm normally a physics guy, got to give the chemists out there props on this one. Also props to Bill and Melinda Gates for partnering with me on this video. Check out their 2019 annual letter here- b-gat.es/2RPpLCc

    Summary: I used some powder that has a flocculant in it to make swampy water drinkable. This can be used in situations where people don't have access to drinking water. Then I met up with Bill Gates and we talked about why we should help poor countries.

    You better hope there’s no giardia. Chlorine is not 100% effective on giardia.

    Hmm... help poor countries. The problem there is country and religion. Some say get rid of both. John Lennon "Imagine there's no countries
    , It isn't hard to do, Nothing to kill or die for, And no religion, too, Imagine all the people, Living life in peace. AS with some Math, this simplifies to The haves want to keep the have NOTs to be have nots.

    There is an exception for no water - a tardigrade (water bear) can go 100 years without food or water. Don't believe me? Look it up - and give this comment a thumbs up.

    what if there was a project where a lot of this powder is dumped in a dirty river/lake, then stirred using boat that has a spinning watermill, which moves horizontally as the mixer.

    This is the same process that water goes to at a water processing plant. Water is pulled from a reservoir, it's dirty, a coagulating polymer is added to separate the dirt and other bad stuff from the water. Then you pump chlorine into it and send it out

    By evaluating your perspective on life @4:34 "it goes to work on killing the 99.9999% of all the really tiny viruses and bacteria that are left on the water

    YOU SHOULDN'T DRINK THE WATER AT @2:22 because little that you know the remaining 0.0001% will undergo cell division to become 1000% more than what the packet killed after you let them enter the incubation chamber (Your warm Stomach); NOW THEY ARE BILLIONS.
