    I recently saw a report that stated that clean drinking water for the worlds population
    will soon be in short supply.

    The future projections indicated that there will not be enough clean drinking water for everyone on the planet, if current global population trends continue to increase, or maintain
    their current pace.

    They also stated that clean drinking water will become a major commodity, and may soon
    be privatized by distributed by private corporations. This has already happened in countries
    like Bolivia, and other parts of the world.

    They indicated that certain parts of the Earth have been experiencing a "prolonged drought situation", that is not improving but may be getting worse. This drought situation may be extending it self to the United States of America, and Europe. As it was already operating in
    Africa, China, and other areas of the less developed world.:razz:

    India Could Face Water Woes In Coming Decades
    March 21, 2011 - U.N. World Water Day is a reminder that some of the world's looming water crises are urgent and vast in scope. That is especially true in South Asia, where hundreds of millions of the world's poorest residents lack basic water infrastructure, and where access to natural water supplies is set to become ever more competitive.

    Water, either too little or too much at once will be an increasing problem in the coming years.

    Nothing more than blame-shifting for the water price increase due to money printing. Every commodity is going up in price. There is a 16 month lag between when money is printed & commodities rise. Government has all that time to create fancy stories of shortages as a scapegoat for price rise due to inflated currency.

    Welcome to one of governments oldest & best tricks in the book for pulling one over on the population.

    Do you see anybody dropping dead from lack of water? It would only take 3 to 5 days.

    The answer is NO!

    Has your water bill increased over the past 3 years?

    The answer is YES!

    It is always about the money.

    Show me a populace that has died from lack of drinking water.

    I can show you many people who increase the water line size supplying their homes just so they can install large multiple headed showers to waste even more fresh water.

    Governments create the narrative & suckers follow it.

    Very true. I just watched a documentary on TV where six experts, each in their own field, told of coming disasters. The program was called something about doomsday predictions, and one of the six items was about the shortage of water. America is going to have it's own problems, and soon. The largest water aquifer in America is the Ogallala aquifer, and it's being pumped dry far faster than it can replenish. Once that water is gone, a third of America will be wondering where it's water is going to come from.

    Like you Care, I have my own well. And this water issue is one of the big reasons why I live in Wisconsin. Where I'm at you can pound a pipe twenty feet into the ground just about anywhere and you'll have some of the best tasting, purest water in the world, and it replenishes faster than we can pump it out. We're always right on the brink of flood stage.

    Yes water shortage is going to be a real problem for much of the world in the coming times. Maybe it'll even be more valuable than oil.

    And if you're ignorant enough to think there isn't a water shortage on the horizon, you better pull your head out and start reading...

    :eusa_doh: Oh - Yeah! It's Very true because I just watched a documentary on TV that said so. :cuckoo:

    :lmao: :rofl::rofl::rofl: :lmao: :rofl::rofl::rofl: :lmao: :rofl::rofl::rofl: :lmao:

    Back in the 1970s my school teacher showed us all those shortage & crisis propaganda films. One in particular said there was a shortage of drinking water coming very soon & now we were going to have use ships helicopters to bring huge icebergs from the ocean in to melt them for fresh water. They said the salt & impurities did not freeze into the ice so when it thawed it would be fresh water. Have you ever seen that happen yet? NO!
