|Solving water problems will impact humanity in the most significant way. From drought-stricken regions to contaminated aquifers to areas affected by natural disaster, water issues affect both rich and poor alike. The availability of abundant fresh water is not only the foundation of life, livelihood, and health but is also necessary for global economic and political stability. Our Rain Maker invention can help provide clean water for drinking, farming, sanitation, and industrial uses.||Lack of electricity has kept nearly three billion people in poverty by putting education, livelihood, and basic necessities out of reach.

And they need to be implemented for the benefit of everyone – rich and poor – and free from profit seekers and government red tape.|
