We need a more efficient way to dispose of effluent in Congress and the White House.
Let's all HOPE for a CHANGE in 2012!
DRIP! (don't return incumbent politicians).
PS: Also, please do all you can to conserve water, everywhere and always; even when you are not having drought. Clean water is just something else we take for granted in the USA.

To start...... I don't understand your first sentence AT ALL!!! What do you mean?

I save a lot of water by NOT flushing! If it's just urine, and I'm the only one using the toilet, I wait until it's necessary - either from numerous uses, or from a BM. Helps your septic system also, if you have one.

As for a change in 2012? Change to what? If you look back, every time we've been in the red - a Republican put us there!!! We were in the red when Clinton took over. He put us back in the black - then Bush #2 cheats his way into the white house - and look at what happened!!! Obama inherited the massive debt - and a war. He's working hard to fix it, and I for one, am behind him 100%! If he was stronger on the illegal immigrant issue and pro womens health rights, he would be perfect in my mind.

Usually the Gates Foundation funds projects that end up putting more money in their pockets. Like funding the production and testing of certain vaccinations that are not common, but they can use the third world as a testing ground for the production of these new vaccines - how to kill two birds with one stone: get cheap unsuspecting testing subjects to try out new vaccines and say you are doing it as a humanitarian cause. The whole "how to use human excrecment as an organic compost" does not hold water either. Most people these days are so toxic and they excrete toxins into their stools, that the stools would certainly be more than organic matter. Think about it: imagine a holistic type undergoing a "cleanse" to rid their body of toxins including heavy metals like mercury and lead and while they are doing the cleanse, they are in a place where there is a composting toilet. So now the feces is laden with toxic heavy metals and you want to spread that around the organic vegetable farm that I might be getting my vegetables from? I don't think so!!!

"So now the feces is laden with toxic heavy metals"

Your feces is full of heavy metals? What have you been eating??

If Gates wants to do something useful with those millions, he should find a way to convert sea water to drinking water. Think of how many lives would be improved from that!

If Gates is involved users will have to keep buying upgrades to keep the toilet flushing.

PS: Composting toilets have been available for over 20 years.

I am involved in a lawsuit against Monsanto, now. They are an evil entity, and responsible directly for many types of cancer, as well as genetically engineering our crops into poison. Ever heard of PCBs?

I'm not giving up my porcelain toilet for nothing. By the way, it was first introduced by a man named: John Crapper, my daddy, the plumber told me that, don't know if it was true or not, but it's amusing.

It is true, about Crapper. He was English. Probably the Victorian era if I remember correctly. Amazing, isn't it? What did they call it before he invented the "crapper". You know that isn't what it was til he put his name on it...hmmmmm

He's doing it to make money? You mean he's he's investing billions of dollars to help people and you assume he's out for himself?

Pathetic.

I think it's grate that Mr.Gates is tring to help out other people who have nothing.Just the giving of clean water is alot to the ones who have not even that.I pray your efforts help and hope Others will follow to help as well.Really heart warming.

How did our mindset change? Look at England. Unless I am mistaken, they still have a law on the books requiring people to shout SLOP before dumping human waste from their balconies to the street below. Sanitation and the knowledge of Microbiology changed our mindset. It will do the same for them but they have to go through the process of learning and doing.

It warms my heart to see them learning and doing it themselves. The effects of this involvement will be perpetual unless the current generation decides that now that we know it doesn't everyone! That would be a mistake. Knowledge neither passes through the placenta nor inherited. Knowledge passes from generation to generation by the word of mouth and by living it and seeing it in practice. .

The idea of training people for jobs instead of giving them knowledge is not going to work. First of all sick people can't work; they in fact take the whole family down with them. Second, America tried this job training approach during the sixties as part of the equal rights movement. It was politically rewarding but did not help people because as the jobs got phased out the people were unemployed again joining the ranks of the welfare recipients. Instead of job training, had the Government worked towards making them knowledgeable, and by that I don’t mean schooling them, the current epidemic of unemployment could have been averted along with its impact on global economy.
