The Dangers of Dihydrogen Monoxide (DHMO) in our Daily Lives.

Dihydrogen Monoxide Research Division
Environmental Impact of Dihydrogen Monoxide
Due in part to its widespread use in industry, Dihydrogen Monoxide (DHMO) is involved in many environmental incidents each year. While most are unavoidable given current technology, there can be little doubt that the presence of DHMO in each significantly increases the negative impact to the environment.

Among the many commonly-sited DHMO-related environmental impacts are:

* DHMO contributes to global warming and the "Greenhouse Effect", and is one of the so-called "greenhouse gasses."

* DHMO is an "enabling component" of acid rain -- in the absence of sufficient quantities of DHMO, acid rain is not a problem.

* DHMO is a causative agent in most instances of soil erosion -- sufficiently high levels of DHMO exacerbate the negative effects of soil erosion.

* DHMO is present in high levels nearly every creek, stream, pond, river, lake and reservoir in the U.S. and around the world.

* Measurable levels of DHMO have been verified in ice samples taken from both the Arctic and Antarctic ice caps.

* Recent massive DHMO exposures have lead to the loss of life and destruction of property in California, the Mid-West, the Philippines, and a number of islands in the Caribbean, to name just a few.
* Research has shown that significant levels of DHMO were found in the devastating Indian Ocean tsunami in 2004 which killed 230,000 in Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia and elsewhere, making it the deadliest tsunami in recorded history.
* It is widely believed that the levee failures, flooding and the widespread destruction resulting from Hurricane Katrina along the U.S. Gulf Coast in 2005 were caused or exacerbated by excessive DHMO levels found in the Gulf of Mexico, along with other contributing factors.


  1. DHMO also corodes iron: imagine what it does to your stomach.

  2. I have a cousin who maintains the extended family email list server.

    Back in the early days of the internet he had to break the more naive and credulous relations of the habit of forwarding alarmist viral scam crap to the whole family.

    After he sent out a DHMO screed, people started getting a better understanding.

  3. So lewy, if no one is getting those Valuable Forwards, does your cousin know not to ever sniff a perfume sample in a Walmart parking lot held under his nose by a complete stranger? (because you know how "they" put chloroform on it and then you are never seen again). Until you come back and write an email warning people not to do that. :OP
