WHITE HOUSE ANNOUNCES TRUMP WOULD LIKELY VETO BILL REGULATING 'FOREVER CHEMICALS' IN DRINKING WATER
That was last week's headline in Newsweek.
And welcome to our first update of 2020.
The Weekly CEO Briefing Goes BIG!
The weekly briefings have been such a success that we are promoting them as full webinars!
Yes, starting next week, I will be making a full weekly (or so) presentation, live on Zoom.
So—today's CEO Briefing will be the last informal one.
But I promise you it will be interesting!
Timing can be an amazing thing. In my last CEO Briefing of the year, I said,
"The big centralized water systems, which are paid for by citizens, should be growing to meet the population demands and all this stuff I just talked about, but they are basically just trying to keep up with the degradation of their systems.
Flash! Catch my CEO Briefing today at 5pm Pacific / 8pm Eastern. We'll cover planning for the new year, including potential acquisitions, and driving sales both here and abroad.
We have a problem, and I talk about it in this article:
"Currently, about 90% of the U.S. population relies on centralized networks of pipes and huge “mega-facilities” for water treatment and distribution.
In the US, I hope you had a great Thanksgiving.
As I promised, we're preparing a full commercial rollout of the animal farming application that our friends in Spain pioneered.
A first announcement is on the way, along with a cool video. Meanwhile, here is a preview. Enjoy!
I'm writing this on a brilliantly sunny afternoon in Barcelona, on the way back from many tours of pig farms over two days, and an historic meeting in which we agreed to build a new relationship with our key partner in Europe, Depuporc S.L.
We are on our way to Barcelona, where our Spanish partner, Depuporc, will showcase its manure treatment pilot system, which fully integrates our Electro Water Separation™ and Advanced Oxidation (AOx™) technologies!
IRAN DISCOVERS NEW OIL FIELD WITH OVER 50 BILLION BARRELS
That was the report on AP yesterday.
My friend Alex Lightman commented: "Iran just found 50 billion barrels of proven reserves just 260 feet deep. At $50 a barrel this is worth $2.5 trillion, almost the equivalent to a year’s output for the California economy. And all from Khuzestan, the western Arab province that the west stole from Iraq and gave to Iran."
OriginClear CEO, Riggs Eckelberry Aims to Take Water Treatment from $1 Trillion to $5 Trillion.
That was last Friday's headline in Grit Daily, and the story went viral over the next few days in social media...
This was last week's headline on CNBC:
MONEY FROM SOCIALLY RESPONSIBLE INVESTORS FLOWS INTO US WATER STOCKS
Yes, it seems there's a shortage of publicly traded water companies in which to invest. These utilities are popular with funds that focus on environmental, social and governance (ESG).
This photo is... well, exactly what it looks like.
Yep, a toilet! This had been "black water" (flush water) just a few moments before. And not just in a home, but in a big commercial operation.
Back in December 2017, we announced that our licensee in Spain had turned manure water into clear water.
Here's the video, from nearly two years ago:
Even water that meets drinking water standards... could be bad for you.
That's the conclusion of a study published in the research journal Heliyon.
The headline on Fox News announced, "More than 100,000 cancer cases could be caused by contaminants in tap water, study finds".
OK so we know that water quality is a problem in many US cities. But how can we be most effective in helping? The answer: do what you already do best.
You can watch my MoneyTV report here, but here's the basic story:
Today, our own Dan Early advised me that a major site installation has been completed and the client is extremely happy.
I'm extremely happy with the performance of our team under the leadership of Tom Marchesello, Chief Operating Officer.
We did it!
Cedric Ceballos and Fred Martin joined me on stage at the famous AREDAY 2019 conference to present the Enough is Enough™ campaign to an enthusiastic audience!
Cedric and Fred (bios here) grew up in Compton, California and played on the same basketball team in high school. Cedric went on to be a star player for the LA Lakers and Phoenix Suns, while Fred began a brilliant music career, currently touring the famous Compton Kidz Club...
This past week has brought a TON of great news about our sales activities through the new CORPORATE SALES DIVISION.
To report on that, I have asked our Chief Operating Officer, Tom Marchesello, to join me on today's CEO Briefing, at 5pm Pacific. Sign up here!
He will tell us about the sales of our Modular products, which are highly standardized to support rapid sales expansion.
Tuesday we announced that we will present the Enough is Enough™ campaign at the 16th AREDAY Summit, August 15-17 in Aspen/Snowmass, Colorado.
Great conference—you might remember that I debated T. Boone Pickens on that same stage, back in 2014.
The big news is... I will be sharing the stage with... Cedric Ceballos!
"Compton district that served ‘disgusting’ drinking water will cease to exist", announced an LA Times article earlier this year.
OK, but the problems with this "brown water" are ongoing.
So, last month, my brother and co-founder Nicholas and I met with a pair of well-connected Compton citizens to find out what was going on.
