“This is amazing. More than I could have hoped for. Please keep it going. Don't let it become a cult. Sometimes I worry our language borders on the culty. We are a movement, not a cult. Please don't forget. I don't want to be part of a cult. But seriously, I love all of you guys that made this possible for me and I really hope we can beat the Green-Meanies and get the Solar Punk future we deserve!”

“Very good video. Inspired graphics and animation. Very instructive. Most people just never have the opportunity to think about what the real problems are and what the real solutions are.”

“This is a beautiful, potent recounting of the rarest kind of miracle, one that can be taught to family as well as adapted to other cultures and geological circumstances.”

“Wow, this series of 3 animation videos is beautifully illustrated and fills in the missing pieces that we're not taught about the hydrologic cycle. Really nicely done!”

Andrew Millison

“These are wonderful, simple, inspiring explanations that give hope and motivation. I pointed out this website and the videos to a friend who is a 5th grade teacher. She is very enthused and plans to use these materials for her students in next year's study of the water cycle. Thank you Zach!”

“Gathering my thoughts, listening, learning and watching. A multitude of questions cross my mind and then I watch another video and read more posts and the answers are given. Its only my first day, I hope to contribute soon but For now I want to ('scuse the pun) just absorb. Thank you to all who have and do!”

“Brilliant and inspirational thesis for the regenerative restoration work needed! The ecological and social benefits are clear; How can we evolve our political and economic systems to likewise reward this progressive Full Water Cycle revival?”

“The film is even better than I was hoping. When explaining water retention to people, it is so holistic that it can be difficult to summarize the main concept. I feel like this film will allow me to explain to those around me why I am so invested in this. Thank you to everyone involved in making it! I am so excited for my next step - the courses!”
