In Regards to Your Article about the Invention for Extracting Minerals from Seawater

Dear Mr. Campbell,

Thank you for your article about extracting minerals from seawater. This invention seems like a great idea, and can make some people very wealthy, but I see some major problems with its use.

Four of the first five minerals listed are electrolytes in the human body, and if those minerals are lost, the human body can’t function. The same occurs with the Earth, which is a living body, too.

I am the founder and director of a nonprofit organization that is working to create an international government based on the U.S. Constitution and the cooperation of nature. One of the departments—the Department of the Oceans--of the international government will assume responsibility for keeping the oceans in their pristine condition. Because the Earth is a closed ecosystem, what affects one part affects it all, and so the environment must be under the auspices of an international body that takes politics and special interests out of the equation.

We recommend that any new inventions, such as this one, where the environment will be affected, face cultural and technological review before it is put into use, and if it can’t pass review, that it be placed on the shelf until everyone is in agreement for it to come.

I hope you will support the plan for the international government. As of today, people in 85 nations support the plan.

Yours for peace,

Karen Holmes,
The World Peace Organization for the One World Government
