RIVIL’S MISSION:

Accelerate World’s Renewable Freshwater Availability for both Production & Consumption.

Overpopulation

World’s Scientist Warning to Humanity; Second Notice

On 13th November 2017, Over 15,000 global scientists & Nobel Laureates has signed this petition, where all agreed that human species has unleashed a mass extinction event, the sixth in roughly 540 million years, wherein many current life forms could be annihilated or at least committed to extinction by the end of this century – year 2100.

This warning has concluded that one of the main contributing factor for this “doomsday” is ever growing of human population. Our population increases in a vertical climb manner, as shown in the graph;

In 10,000BC, human population is just at 1million people globally. Through advancement of new technologies that contributed to longer human life span, our population reached the first 1 billion only in 1850AD. Only within around 150 years, our population has now aggressively ballooned to 7.5 billion; a staggering 750% growth in just 150 years.

A sudden increase of population in short amount of time requires large resources to be taken from Mother Earth. This creates natural resources scarcity where overpopulation creates overconsumption. This exert stresses on Earth that can overwhelm other efforts to realize a sustainable future (Crist et al. 2017).

Overpopulation places competitive stress on the basic life sustaining resources, leading to a diminished quality of life. Directly related to maintaining the health of the human population is water supply, and it is one of the resources that experience the biggest strain.

Water Insufficiency

Water, A Very Scarce Resource

We live in a water planet. 70% of Earth’s surface is water of which 97.5% is salt water and 2.5% is freshwater. Less than 1% of this 2.5% amount of freshwater is accessible to all living beings. The majority of freshwater is frozen in ice caps or exists as soil moisture.

With the global population at about 7.5 billion, and each human theoretically needs 2 liters of drinking water, thus there is a demand for 15 billion liters of water each day to meet the minimum requirement for healthy living (United Nation). And far from our instinctive guess that water is abundance, water is a very scarce resource that all living beings rely on for basic survival.

Where there is water, there is life. Since water is the basic of life itself, insufficiency of water will result in extinction of life itself (refer Reason #1).

As a company, we do see this as the biggest problem human is facing, and we are doing our best to help eradicate this problem with innovative technologies that is affordable and solve pain points and bottlenecks in both production and consumption of drinkable water.

  1. One-thirds of the global population (2 billion people) live under conditions of severe water scarcity at least 1 month of the year.

  2. Half of the world’s largest cities experience water scarcity.

  3. One-thirds of the global population (2 billion people) live under conditions of severe water scarcity at least 1 month of the year.

  4. And with climate change, growing populations, and agricultural demands, the global water crisis will only worsen. If current trends continue, demand is expected to outstrip supply by 40% by 2030. (WEF 2017)

The Biomimicry Solution

Biomimicry is innovation inspired by nature

Life has been on earth, for 3.8 billion years. In this long period, life has learn what works and whats appropriate and whats sustainable. Perhaps, we should be looking at this biological elders; they have figured out how to create a sustainable world.

Rather than inventing it from scratch, why dont we learn from nature. Maybe the best ideas is not ours, maybe its already been invented by nature.

We see the mother nature and the organisms that has existed before us as engineers, architects, chemists and technologists. We see the mother nature as the greatest teacher of all.

Rivil solutions for water will be based on biomimicry, where GENAQ AWG Technology mimics rain and adapts to nature water cycle.

This creates ZERO WASTE thus super-friendly to the earth.
