NEW YORK, Feb. 24, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bravo Enterprises Ltd. (OTCBB:OGNG) reports that there has been tremendous interest in the Company's air-to-water machines from potential distributors as well as consumers from the middle east region of the world. The threat of war and terrorism over the shortage of water is very real.
Recent satellite data released by the University of California, Irvine, shows the world's water supply is disappearing fast because of agricultural demand, an expanding population, energy production and climate change, with the Middle East, Africa and Asia in particular facing crisis in the next few years. Satellite data shows that groundwater depletion is happening at a very rapid rate in almost all of the major aquifers in the arid and semi-arid parts of the world.
In addition, a study from the Pacific Institute of Oakland, Calif., which monitors global water and security issues, reports a fourfold increase in violent confrontations over water in the last 10 years. Together, these studies present an extremely bleak picture of how vast areas of the planet, from California to the Asian Steppe, are heading for severe, and probably deadly, water shortages.
Iran is facing a shortage so severe, the government is making contingency plans for rationing in the greater Tehran area, which has a population of about 22 million. Experts blame climate change, wasteful irrigation practices and a depletion of groundwater as the key factors behind the worsening shortages.
Water shortages in the United Arab Emirates are so severe that non-conventional resources, such as desalination, treated wastewater and even cloud-seeding, is being used to help the country through the unfolding crisis. "For us, water is now more important than oil," Gen. Sheik Mohammed bin Zayed al-Nahyan, the Emirati crown prince, told a recent international water conference in Abu Dhabi.
"Even though certain parts of the Middle East are landlocked, there is still enough exposure to atmospheric water rising from the bodies of water surrounding countries like Oman, Yemen, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Syria, Turkey, Iran and Libya," states Jaclyn Cruz, President of Bravo Enterprises Ltd. "These countries need to consider atmospheric water as a viable alternative for clean drinking water as it is an available water source that has not been utilized to its fullest potential."
