PeakWaterUS.com Launches Indiegogo Crowdfunding Campaign With Compelling Eco-Friendly Perks Packages

PeakWaterUS.com is a social enterprise platform under development whose focus will be raising awareness of, empowering activism regarding, and offering self-sufficiency preparedness for “peak water” – the point where demand for safe clean freshwater begins to exceed the combined abilities of nature and man to replenish and supply it. This week they launched a crowdfunding campaign under Environment on Indiegogo.com, their goal being to raise $100,000 in contributions. According to T.R. Shirley, the seasoned activist behind the project:

“Climate change from corporate greed is reshaping our planet. We are entering the era of Peak Water and the Water Wars have begun. Unseen by many, here in America a battle is raging to determine whether the last drop of groundwater pumped from the last exploitable aquifer will be diverted for fracking by Big Oil, contaminated with pesticides by Big Ag, polluted with prescription drugs by Big Pharma, or bottled in plastic and sold for a king’s ransom by Big Water. But if enough concerned American parents and eco-friendly patrons support the buildout of the PeakWaterUS.com platform, the outcome of the above can be none of the above.”

Peak oil is here – and vast amounts of America’s dwindling freshwater supply are being diverted and contaminated in a desperate effort to postpone it. Peak water is near – we can’t drink oil, and we can’t keep sacrificing our drinking water to get it. If we don’t get proactive about safe clean water today, there won’t be enough safe clean water to sustain us tomorrow. PeakWaterUS.com will empower that proactivity.

The PeakWaterUS.com hydroactivist platform will consist of three planks: peak water awareness, hydropolitical activism and freshwater scarcity preparedness. It will leverage a freemium business model with membership subscription revenues augmented by the sale of proven and innovative water self-sufficiency solutions, all promoted by eco-friendly affiliate marketing. The proceeds from their crowdfunding will be applied to the web development, software integration, vendor engagement, content production and promotional costs associated with building out the platform and making it operational.

JOBS Act of 2012: Will H.R. 3606 Jumpstart Our Business Startups Or Open The Crowdfunding Fraud Floodgates?

March 24, 2012 Leave a comment

H.R. 3606 | Jobs Act of 2012 | Crowdfunding Fraud Boiler Rooms

Former SEC Chief Accountant warns that the JOBS Act – sponsored by one of the most corrupt Congressmen in Washington – won’t increase employment but will simplify swindling.

JOBS ACT OF 2012: WILL H.R. 3606 JUMPSTART OUR BUSINESS STARTUPS OR OPEN THE CROWDFUNDING FRAUD FLOODGATES?

U.S. Representative Stephen Fincher (R-TN-8) is a Big Ag businessman whose company has received over $8.9 million in government subsidies (corporate welfare) over the past ten years, a politician flagged but never penalized for federal election law violations by the Federal Election Commission last July, and a legislator the political watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) cites as one of the Most Corrupt Members of Congress:

His latest contribution to the corporate greed pervading our government is sponsorship of the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act, HR 3606, which has been passed with massive bipartisan support by both the House and Senate, but was sent back to the House to approve some Senate changes on Thursday (22 March 2012):

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jumpstart_Our_Business_Startups_Act

As is so often the case in Washington DC, the label on this Pandora’s box says nothing about its true contents. Euphemistically referred to as the “Jobs Act of 2012”, former Chief Accountant of the Securities and Exchange Commission Lynn E. Turner warns this bill would destroy small investor protections dating back as far as the creation of the SEC itself. “It WON’T create jobs, but it WILL simplify fraud,” Turner said in an interview last week. “This would be better known as the Bucket-Shop and Penny-Stock Fraud Reauthorization Act of 2012.”

Mr. Turner is not alone in his assessment of HR3606. Crooked Congressman Fincher’s summary claims the goal is to “increase American job creation and economic growth by improving access to the public capital markets for emerging growth companies [e.g. crowdfunding],” but President of the North American Securities Adminstrators Association (NASAA) Jack Herstein warns otherwise:

“Expanded access to capital markets for startups and small businesses can be beneficial, but only insofar as investors can be confident that they are protected, that transparency in the marketplace is preserved, and that investment opportunities are legitimate… Small businesses are important to job growth, and to improving the economy. However, by weakening investor protections and placing unnecessary restrictions on the ability of state securities regulators to protect retail investors from the risks associated with smaller, speculative investments, Congress is on the verge of enacting policies that, although intended to strengthen the economy, will in fact only make it more difficult for small businesses to access investment capital.”

Personally, I’d wager that the only jobs created by the JOBS Act of 2012 will be for Wall Street brokers who didn’t meet quota and other con artists pitching worthless penny stocks from telemarketing boiler rooms and Internet scam sites.
