Letter to Warren Buffett

It is extremely important that the Australian Graphair water filters be manufactured for use by cities, towns, industry and individuals around the world. To have easy access to clean water is imperative for persons living in underdeveloped and/or polluted areas. With that in mind, I wrote and sent this letter to an American gentleman  who has been known as a philanthropist interested in helping mankind. He is a positive individual with the financial means to help. I hope he does. Anyone who assists in this endeavor will most likely reap phenomenal financial benefits. That's to be expected. The resulting benefit to inhabitants of this Earth, however, cannot be measured.

Dear Mr. Buffett,

The Australian firm, Commonwealth Scientific & Industrial Research Organization (CSIRO) has just completed research on a water filter which will clean 99% of the contaminants in water with a single step. For example, it will easily remove molecules of ocean salt, plastic particulates or sewage from water.

CSIRO used a form of Graphene made from soybean oil to create the water filter. The material produced is called Graphair. Once Graphair is in mass production, there will be inexpensive applications of water filtration systems for industry, cities and individuals around the world.

As a philanthropist, if you are interested in participating in one of the greatest inventions for mankind, you may want to investigate production and distribution of the Graphair water filter.   

I anticipate the day when anyone, no matter who or where they are, can take a clean container and pour dirty water into it through a Graphair filter it to create pure drinking water.

My selfish reason for writing this letter is that I would like to have my own Graphair water filters. As far as I know, they are not in production yet. I hope there will be a massive and positive response to produce this perfect water filter. Rather than giving them away to individuals, I’m sure manufacturers will want to sell them for profit. But at least they will be available.

I am overwhelmed with the implication this invention will have on this polluted Earth. I was wondering if you, as an industry leader, could help ensure these filters are manufactured and made available around the world?
