you've heard of it: a colorless, odorless liquid; a powerful coolant
and solvent; an easily- synthesized compound which is used by
industry, the military, commercial operations, and even private
we are talking about hydrogen hydroxide, also known as
dihydrogen monoxide, and we are here to tell you that what
you've heard about DHMO is probably not the whole truth. There are
forces out there, such as the Coalition
to Ban Dihydrogen Monoxide,
who would seek to legislate its use and availability, placing heavy
limitations on it-- and eventually, eradicating it
the interest of fairness, we invite you to see their argument, and
then we urge you to return here, to learn the truth. Their subversive
agenda must not be allowed to prevail.
Hydrogen hydroxide is beneficial!
- It has been shown that hydrogen
hydroxide enhances the functionality, growth, and health of many
forms of life-- including humans!-- and current research suggests
that it has become an integral part of our planet's ecological
Hydrogen hydroxide is environmentally safe!
- Opponents of dihydrogen
monoxide would have you believe that it is some kind of
uber-toxin, that it wreaks caustic terror on anything it touches.
This couldn't be farther from the truth; when handled properly, it
enhances nature rather than destroys it, and even a worst-case
scenario DHMO accident would be a trifle for the natural cycles of
our world to handle.
Hydrogen hydroxide is benign!
- The Coalition and others have
popularized the label "dihydrogen monoxide" over the more
chemically-accurate "hydrogen hydroxide" because they know how
loaded the former name is. "Monoxide" has become synonymous with
pollution, toxic gases, industrial waste-- and while hydrogen
hydroxide is sometimes a factor in these problems facing our world
today, it is rarely the dangerous element.
Hydrogen hydroxide occurs in nature!
- To hear its naysayers'
descriptions, one would think hydrogen hydroxide was solely the
product of industrial technology; that it came from years of
research in clandestine labs. This is not the case! Hydrogen
hydroxide has been a part of nature longer than we have; what
gives us the right to eliminate it?
We need hydrogen hydroxide!
Don't let an
uneducated and terror-stricken mob of fanatics railroad you into
giving up your right to choose!
Support the use and
distribution of hydrogen hydroxide in your neighborhood, city, state,
to you by the Friends of Hydrogen
Hydroxide and the
Earth Party. Those
interested in joining our cause, or simply interested in learning
more about hydrogen hydroxide, its uses and benefits, and those who
are trying to ban it, should send mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
