(March 22, 2012) The Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) states that “…within the next 10 years, shortages, poor water quality, floods – will likely increase the risk of instability, exacerbate regional tensions, and distract countries from working with the United States on important policy objectives…”
Note that the world is moving toward a date that think tanks and governments around the world point to as 2030, the time when large deficits of water, oil, and food will have a significant impact on everyone, including the United States.
According to the full copy of the report:
“Between now and 2040, global demand for fresh water will increase but the supply of fresh water will not keep pace with demand absent more effective management of water resources. A major international study finds that annual global water requirements will reach 6,900 billion cubic meters (bcm) in 2030, 40 percent above current sustainable water supplies. Climate change will cause water shortages in many areas of the world.”
From the 2007 United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Assessment Report:
“In the course of the century, water supplies stored in glaciers and snow cover are projected to decline, reducing water availability in regions supplied by meltwater from major mountain ranges. According to the IPCC, semi-arid and arid areas are particularly exposed to the impacts of climate change on water resources, Many of these areas (e.g., Mediterranean Basin, western United States, southern Africa, northeast Brazil, southern and eastern Australia) almost certainly will suffer a decrease in water resources due to climate change. (p.1)
The western United States, if you noticed, are at ground zero and will bring serious problems that will affect the whole nation.
(October 19, 2010) According to Alguo Dai, research scientist at the National Center for Atmospheric Research, “We are facing the possibility of widespread drought in the coming decades, but this has yet to be fully recognized by both the public and the climate change research community…if the projections in this study come even close to being realized, the consequences for society worldwide will be enormous.”
Dai’s research shows that “most of the western two-thirds of the United States will be significantly drier by the 2030s. Large parts of the nation face an increasing risk of extreme drought during the century.”
Population increase is the major problem for America. We don’t need more people, we need less. The only reason we “need” more people is to pay for social security and other programs for retirees. But adding more people with no end in sight is foolish. We need to stabilize our numbers or we will end in a third world disaster- hundreds of millions of unemployed, not enough water, food or oil, which is necessary for the production of over 6000 products.
The only answer to the impending water shortage is from our State Department. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton announced “a new U.S. Water Partnership (USWP). This would be a public-private partnership. This bears watching when corporations are in charge.
Corporations have a ” partnership” with governments and corporations are the senior partners. The three leaders of the U.S., Canada, and Mexico meet with corporate CEOs ( Wal-Mart, GM, Whirlpool) annually at a North American summit where they get their marching orders. Our Secretaries of State, Commerce and Homeland Security also meet with their counterparts and coordinate the continuing integration of North America.
While the world population continues to grow past 9 billion by 2050, the United States policy toward the third world is “come on in”. Acquiring a third world labor force has been the goal of corporate CEOs for decades and now Obama is trying to make George W. Bush’s dream of this “new America” a reality by replacing American workers with those from Mexico.
The population of America will grow by 72 million in another 25 years and no one in authority has even mentioned stopping this runaway population growth. Most of the new inhabitants will be Mexican or other Hispanics and most of those will be from new births (U.S. Census Bureau 2008). It’s part of the plan to replace Americans with cheap labor, primarily from Mexico.
Now consider this. Those 72 million more people will be demanding more water, oil and food. Most of these new inhabitants will settle in the western United States. We don’t have enough water to supply the west now. Rationing is a way of life there. There are projects underway to help alleviate the problem but it’s a futile effort when by 2050 there will be 438 million people in the U.S. And that number could be much higher. Indeed, the entire population of Mexico and Canada could be here when our government finishes the North American perimeter. With no more internal borders, all citizens of North America would have the right to “live and work” anywhere on the continent.
The Center for Immigration Studies gives examples of what demands will be made on Americans to support the huge population increase:
- The nation will need to build and pay for 36,000 more schools
- Develop enough land to accommodate 52 million new housing units.
- Construct enough new roads to handle 106 million more passenger vehicles.
We don’t have enough oil to supply our needs now. Drill all you want. Drive your 565 horsepower Cadillac at $10 per gallon when you can find it. There will be shortages of everything. There won’t be enough water to supply the huge influx of people or for the farmlands to grow food in California or the rest of the western United States.
And the year 2030 is still the date when the world’s food, water and oil supplies will not be able to meet the new large global population with their demands for autos, a diet of meat, requiring large amounts of water to produce, and water itself.
The one thing that would help tremendously toward a goal of adequate resources for Americans would be to stop immigration. But that won’t happen. The CEOs want an overabundance of cheap labor in order to acquire trillions of dollars for their pleasure. That’s it. So nothing will be done about immigration. CEOs are only thinking about the bottom line.
Chris Hedges. Signs of the end:
“Human beings seem cursed to repeat these cycles of exploitation and collapse. And the greater the extent of the deterioration the less they are able to comprehend what is happening around them. The Earth is littered with the physical remains of human folly and hubris. We seemed condemned as a species to drive ourselves and our societies toward extinction, although this moment appears to be the denouement to the whole sad show of settled, civilized life that began some 5,000 years ago. There is nothing left on the planet to seize. We are now spending down the last remnants of our natural capital, including our forests, fossil fuel, air and water.
“This time when we go down it will be global. There are no new lands to pillage, no new peoples to exploit. Technology, which has obliterated the constraints of time and space, has turned our global village into a global death trap. The fate of Easter Island will be writ large across the broad expanse of planet Earth.” From the article ‘This Time We’re Taking the Whole Planet With Us’.
Howard Kunstler, who, in 2005, predicted the global economic collapse would occur in 2008, said this would be our long emergency. Life would never be the same again:
“The circumstances of the Long Emergency will be the opposite of what we currently experience. There will be hunger instead of plenty, cold where there was once warmth, effort where there was leisure, sickness where there was health, and violence where there was peace. We will have to adjust our attitudes, values, and ideas to accommodate these new circumstances and we may not recognize the people we will soon become or the people we once were. In a world where sheer survival dominates all other concerns, a tragic view of life is apt to reassert itself. This is another way of saying that we will become acutely aware of the limitations of human nature in general and its relation to ubiquitous mortality in particular. Life will get more real.”
The future will bring a lot of suffering for America since our leaders are driving us off the cliff and there is no turning back. The public seems to be in a trance, hoping that our leaders will help us. They can’t imagine that the president and members of congress are the executioners of our sovereign nation, the last hope for the world. And they still vote as if it means something.
The New World Order (as declared by Henry Kissinger and George H.W. Bush many times) means the end of “democracy” and the end of absolute free speech and the right to bear arms. As George W. Bush stated on a visit to the EU (2008), “we support a world based on international law.”
Every region of the world must be “harmonized” and “integrated”. No guns and no free speech. Violation of speech “with exceptions” in the EU will cost you 3 years in prison, even if your speech is true. The EU is now the model for regional governance.
Since there is no outrage against this overthrow of our government by stealth, every American is left alone to survive this spiral into hell on earth. If you plan to be here another 20 to 50 years, you should be making survival plans now.
