  1. The Primary Water Institute – More Scientific Evidence “Water is a RENEWABLE” = the Earth makes water deep within and WE CAN “EASILY” ACCESS IT . . . READ MORE – LEARN MORE – we have been tricked by the powers that be into thinking water is scarce and we are running out . . We have not been told the TRUTH . . . The Earth makes water continually, within . . .
    “A NEW PERSPECTIVE ON SOURCE OF THE POST-NAPA QUAKE WATER”
    September 26, 2014
    As Solano County enjoys an incredible new flow of water in local creeks after the recent Napa earthquake, experts are speculating what might be the source of this “bonus from nature” LINK . Officials report that at least 200,000 gallons of water per day are flowing from Wild Horse Creek, with many other areas reporting similar phenomena. Water quality tests performed by local public works officials confirm that the new water is pure enough to drink. This new water is being added to municipal drinking water supplies…a great blessing to local residents.
    Although federal government geologists report that the new flow of water is likely “shallow groundwater” suddenly released from opening of fractures, other theories exist that offer great hope for a thirsty world.

  2. It surely is a disgrace but a bigger disgrace is that the individual in not doing enough to help themselves. There are filters out there to take care of the problem. Buy one. Then get together and jail the individuals who let it happen.

  3. Seems very Bangladeshi (no offence to the people of Bangladesh, but I've seen the water crisis you are suffering from as well).
    3rd world countries have it much harder than the wealthiest country the USA.
    Capitalism has no answers for these problems. Just ways to profit off the misery until the entire system collapses.
    Although, this is one way to stop immigration to the US…

  4. trump Promised INFRASTRUCTURE where is it? First Flint, Now Newark which city is next Pittsburgh? LEVEES Breaking,Massive Flooding, homes and businesses Destroyed.Old Rusty Water Pipes Breaking SinkHoles opening Up Everywhere. Bridges Falling Down.Our High Ways are in Desperate Need Of REPAIR and the ONLY thing that trump wants to build is a WALL

  5. trump has spent a little over 9 Months out of the past 31 months of his FAKE Presidency in his properties GOOFING OFF. He was so Concerned about President Obama’s 2 week Hawaiian Vacation he promised the American People that he would NEVER take a Vacation or Play Golf.

  6. This is horrible!!! WTF happens to all of those little plastic bottles too? Rise up absolutely. Take it to the streets like Hong Kong 👨‍👩‍👧‍👧👨‍👨‍👧‍👧👩‍👩‍👦‍👦💣

  7. Why can’t Democrat controlled cities manage clean water for their citizens? Which Republican’s fault is it this time? I feel sorry for these people, but then I remember that they keep voting those idiots into office.

  8. Michael: Something you didn't know about 9/11. GW Bush, at his first outdoor spring speech, said, "If you want to save money, shut down Project Impact!" The goal of Project Impact was, "To build disaster resistant communities!"

  9. 15,000 households in the most densely populated part of the US? That sounds like a relatively small problem. Will MSNBC report it as a small problem, or will MSNBC report it as a crisis that threatens the pillars of society?

  10. Why are you talking to Michael Moore about water quality? Why not speak to a water expert? Why not talk to a plumber, even? You call Michael Moore because he's a specialist. He specializes in writing narratives of the little guy against the looming big government or corporation.

  11. Yeah this is why people lose faith in Mass Media, no one is investigating or reporting on issues that affect average people, i bet if this had anything to do with Russia or Trump they would be all over it.

  12. Moore is race baiting, its more economics than race, but black ppl must think independently …its the people city and state responsibility…. for cleaning water…not trump… thats why we have a state system….the mayor and city council voted themselves a massive pay raise. the council members have salaries higher than state reps and their neighbors like jersey city… think independently ….Stop voting for people that talk more than they act…wake up black ppl

  13. The one thing that everyone has to learn is that the reason it has happened is because the vast majority think that the Federal Government can't afford to fix it.

    That is simply NOT TRUE. I am not an Economist so here is an Economist explaining the way the Federal Government actually pays for things.

  14. I'm not saying it's healthy. BUT ! You can't compare this to Flynt. How many people have used water that came into their houses through led pipes ? How old did these people get in these areas ? Did everybody die from lead poisoning ? I bet more people died from smoking or obesitas. Should it be fixed. Yes of coarse. But the covarge is out of proportion.

  15. You won´t die from bathing in water with lead. You can drink it. It´s not completely healthy and yes ¨pipes should be replaced. But this is taken out of proportion. I bet more people die from drinking too much coke and hamburgers or smoking cigarettes than drinking water with some lead in it. Proove me wrong !

  16. Has the water in Flint been made better even?
    Trump said he was going to fix it, no?

    Rhetorical question. We all know the answer,..

  17. So great to see Micheal Moore talking about this. But I see no politicians talking about this. This shouldn’t be an issue of a filmmaker alone. Why is it?
    Glad he does it,…

  18. Lol…Brian Williams pretending to be a journalist….and Michael Moore is the “expert” on the show? And then watching Democrats try to do math…now that’s fu’king funny! You guys can’t figure this out…and you want a few thousand more penniless migrants that can’t speak English to take care of…lmfao. Do these people ever feel stupid?

  19. David Ramsey. Not true . Read my reply. Who do you think pays for the program in my community. It’s done with bonds. Once local bonds are approved communities can usually get complimentary states and federal funds to assists. Local politicians and bond ballot measures are where it starts but I’ve not seen one where private property fixes will not require some cost to the homeowners. We are a large country, we have counties here in CA larger and more populated then countries around the world. 3,000 miles, 5,000 kilometers coast to coast. Do you pay for road work 3,000 miles from your country? NO. And you are wrong on this point. We have federal highway maintained by federal funds.
    My water and sewer bill is $120/month. Run by may city. It includes paying for approved bonds. We just approved a solar farm on our waste treatment ponds to help power the system. Should my fellow citizens from 3,000 miles away pay for this?

  20. Brian, you are wrong that cities with well off folks don't have lead in water problems. Washington, DC had 20x to 30x times more lead than in Flint, MI (2001 – 2004). An award winning, peer reviewed retrospective study by Dr. Dana Best (of National Children's Hospital) and Dr. Marc Edwards document the death and destruction of DC's highest ever recorded lead in water poisoning, to wit: 200 fetal deaths, 2000 unborn children and between 800 to upwards of 42,000 kids across the District of Columbia got elevated levels of lead in their blood. We had no apologies, no trials and still have thousands and thousands of 100% lead service lines poisoning our pregnant women, babies and kids. Of course Flint and Newark are wrecked by our disastrous drinking water laws like the Lead & Copper Rule. Lead in water is in wealthy, white, suburban and poor small town and rural communities as well. Millions of our citizens are drinking, cooking with and mixing their babies' formula with lead tainted water. And, to top it all off, this fall, the USEPA will likely propose rule changes to the already weak Lead and Copper Rule that will weaken protections, transparency and accountability and make the lead in water problem even worse than what we are facing now. Please join with the Campaign for Lead Free Water to support our neighbors, our family members and our future generations by standing up to manufactured ignorance about this totally preventable public health, democracy and environmental justice problem. In solidarity, Paul Schwartz, Washington, DC

  21. Those plastic water bottles are a disaster for the environment as well. This needs to get fixed-such a disgrace

  22. 5 Trillion in tax cuts for the rich and not a dime for Flint… Candidate Ttump toured Flint and said if he is elected the crisis would end – The con worked people – get a Fuc***g clue!!

  23. ……..and the funny part is, that the poorest communities that are poisoned the most, or neglected the most, will still vote Republican, the party that ignores them…..

  24. Lead poisoning is thought to have contributed to the fall of Rome. It's quite incredible that a first world country is struggling with providing lead-free water to its citizens.

  25. I wonder if the pipez in the water reticulation systems are radioactive yet lol beta radiation can be very nasty. Very very expensive to replace all those pipes lol

  26. The people of Newark and Flint need to go live in the upscale neighborhoods; even if it's in tents. Upscale neighborhoods don't want that.

  27. Trump supporters need the money to build an imaginary wall against fantasy caravans. Sorry, nothing left for clean water.

  28. This is why oil companies bought up the remaining water reserves folks. Now once again, our tax dollars are paying for it to make them even richer.

  29. Where is the United Nations to monitor this crisis and provide support? Oh it's the U.S. so they have to look the other way.

  30. WE ARE NOT HOLDING ANY EPA EMPLOYEES RESPONSIBLE?
    WHAT ABOUT.
    FEDERAL EMPLOYEES, CITY WORKERS, WATER FILTRATION SYSTEMS MANAGEMENT?

  31. Its everyone everywhere. If your not scared you should be. If your not armed get a gun. Soon bullets will buy your goods. Some will accept it other will be force to take them. It's all about SURVIVAL now.
    The white supremacist are making their move

  32. we need the oil-industry more now than ever. they have the knowledge and capacity to pipe-line the entire world. use that knowledge and need for large infrastructure projects to create a controlable network of reservoirs and pipes so the floodings in one region(even on a diff continent) can be the savior of droughts in other regions. they can be a part of the green deal if invited

  33. The republican party 1% is raiding the wealth of our nation from us and leaving us a third world country. No clean water, contaminated foods, decrepit schools, streets, highways and bridges. Across the country lower and middle class are being ROBBED!!!

  34. Nope, no money to fix anything in the non-white communities… gotto buy more Greenland-Bombs-Missiles-Nukes-Tanks-Jets-GoldenFaucets to "defend" us against ghosts.

  35. Mr. Moore, are you a Samaritan? Do you create problems to provide apparent fixes? Do you renounce Sadism, which is to say, enjoying the suffering of others? Do you create more misery to sustain your lifestyle in unconvincing solutions? Have you ever accused my Roman Catholic church of doing the same? Why did or does the Flint River have a toxic flowing mass of acid? Did Satan try to do the exact same thing right here in Belding in Satanic dramatic irony before God stopped them with providence?

  36. Just imagine all the money we've poured into these wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Libya, Yemen, Somalia, etc.? These Presidents, Congresspeople, and MSM reporters have made it possible.

  37. Why you think bottled water 💦 is so big now! Our government knows what to do to destroy communities and it’s crazy!!! They know what’s wrong!!!
