CITIES could begin to start running out of fresh water in less than ten years, experts warn, as fears grow for the global population. Researchers have issued a stark warning that 2024 could spell the end of the absolute necessity that is fresh water for some northern hemisphere cities. Iqaluit, in eastern Canada, is earmarked as the first area which will run dry in just seven years time, a study by York University has found. Increasing demand on the supply coupled with crippling climate change is seeing residents facing a bleak future. Various methods are being suggested in an attempt to address the
Now I´m really confused. I thought the "crippling climate change" was melting the icecaps and producing enough water to make the sea levels rise. Now the water is vanishing. They also moved the window of danger from a hundred years out to seven years.
Could it be that they are escalating the lie to start the flow of money sooner? Nah.
The earth´s water table is the same now as it has always been. No change. Not possible. Water is consumed, then evaporated back into the atmosphere, then comes back down. Over and over. Of course, there are certain geographical regions that experience drought from time to time. Some more than others. Some of it caused by nature, and some by people making stupid decisions. But it is impossible to run out of water. The Leftist alarmists love to make these dire predictions that nobody remembers 10 years from now. So incredibly ridiculous.
Stark warning! Crippling climate change! Bleak future! Impending crisis! An increasingly pressing issue! From the article on fresh water "He is dangerous! I mean it! Manbearpig will hurt you! I´m cereal!" Al gore, South Park episode mocking Al Gore
Not too long ago the ´experts´ were stating that the Kalifornia drought was permanent. Then nature took its course and now there is too much water, and enough record snow for skiing well into July and perhaps August!! The only thing these ´experts´ do well is fear mongering with their so called ´climate models.´ These computer ´models´ spit out Gloom and Doom no matter what data is used. For years and years there have been thousands of stories about record cold weather (there are no headlines about this, but one can find the stories if one tries). The next Ice Age is coming, and there is nothing anyone can do to stop it.
I will tell you right now Denver, a "high desert" will run out of water sooner rather than later. It cannot sustain the number of people that are moving here on a daily basis, since the passage of recreation marijuana. I´m getting out as soon as I can.
Anything that starts by attributing a problem to climate change is building a fraud on top of a fraud.
They may have some problems but have no chance of fixing them until they get a factual assessment of the causes.
The solution for "climate change" is to stand in a line with your hand out to well off countries. The exchange of money will not FIX anything but it will make liberals feel good about themselves. No one would have any water to drink but someone will have gotten paid off.
The big water emergencies will emerge in large cities under leftist government. Some cities will just let their systems fall apart to spend money on thumbsucker pride parades. Others will declare rivers and aquifers off limits, believing they can conserve their way to more water. And some deeply Democrat cities will do it on purpose, to smear the nearest nonliberals (see Flint, MI).
Another great reason to institute mandatory global population control methods to ease the increasing demand of water. These experts doing the warning can impose personal euthanasia choices in order to personally dedicate their lives for the greater good of the survival of the planet. So everyone mark your calendars in 2024 and let´s see if this fear mongering hysteria comes true.
We can send tourists to Mars but can´t solve an earth-based "water crisis"? The earth is mostly water! We could drag icebergs south and melt them for water (yes, it´s seriously been suggested before by scientists!).
Give me enough electricity (nuclear of course) and I will give you all the water mankind will ever need, along with a lot of other good things.
How utterly absurd. "Be afraid!" is the message. anything to keep their failing meme going so they can glean more money. I am so sick of these scammers. The Global "Catastrophe-ists" are worse than the Hindus and Nigerians calling at night with their obvious little scams. Sheesh! Enough already!
The new generation of liberals has to learn all over again what the older generation finally figured out (but did not tell them.)
After AlGore´s predictions: -"In 10 years....blah, blah, blah", did NOT come true, then -"In 20 years....blah, blah, blah", did NOT come true, then, more recently: -"In 50 years... blah, blah, blah"
It seemed to me that the ONE thing that the doom-sayers had learned, was to set their ´disaster date´ far enough into the future that they would be safely RETIRED by the time the predictions did NOT come true and the FRAUD was proven beyond doubt.
Now here comes this young lady, apparently a generation behind AlGore, and sets a disaster date of only SEVEN years! How long will it take her to learn from her ´elders´?
White House chief strategist Steve Bannon is a marked man, according to news reports and sources inside the West Wing who see the nationalist Trump-whisperer´s political hourglass quickly losing sand. CBS News reported Monday night that the axe could fall as soon as Friday on the man credited with arranging the president´s marriage to millions of angry white working-class voters last year. The former Breitbart News executive chairman was once an equal partner in a ruling triumvirate of deputies that included Chief of Staff Reince Priebus and presidential son-in-law Jared Kushner. But Priebus´s star ran out of fuel last month. And his successor
North Korea´s leader has pulled back from a ordering missile strike just off the US territory of Guam but warned that he could still go ahead if Washington continues with "reckless actions" on the Korean peninsula. Kim Jong-un was briefed by military chiefs on its plans to create "enveloping fire" by setting off rockets into the waters a few miles off the American military hub in the Pacific. News agencies quoted him as saying he would observe the "foolish and stupid conduct of the Yankees" a little more before deciding whether to order a test launch. His decision to hold fire - at
A Methodist pastor who has been Hillary Clinton’s minister for years plagiarized the writings of another minister in a new book, it was reported on Monday. Rev. Bill Shillady is the author of a new book, Strong for a Moment Like This: The Daily Devotions of Hillary Rodham Clinton. The book is based on emails that Shillady wrote to Clinton during the presidential campaign. Clinton even appears on the cover of the book and she even wrote a foreword praising the minister. While the book includes 11 pages of end notes crediting source material, Shillady fails to credit another source, a blog post by
Hillary Clinton´s personal pastor compared her treatment to the persecution of Jesus in a devotional sent to her during the Presidential campaign - and victor Donald Trump to the ´wicked´. The former Democratic candidate took comfort from the words of Rev Bill Shillady who told her that ´blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness´. Rev Shillady referred her to Matthew 5:10-12 which says that the reward for such ill treatment on Earth was going to Heaven when she died. The remarks were among the daily devotionals sent by Rev Shillady to Clinton during her failed campaign against Donald Trump. In the foreword
President Donald Trump insisted on Monday that he and his administration forcefully denounce the ´evil´ embodied by white supremacists and other bigoted hate groups whose weekend rally in Virginia left one woman dead and 20 others injured. ´Racism is evil. And those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs, including the KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans,´ the president said at the White House. ´We are a nation founded on the truth that all of us are created equal. We are equal in the eyes of our
The only black member of President Trump´s American Manufacturing Council quit on Monday over the president´s response to the violence in Charlottesville, calling on American leaders to clearly reject ´expressions of hatred,bigotry and group supremacy.´ Kenneth Frazier, the CEO of the pharmaceutical giant Merck, bowed out of the board, saying it was a ´matter of personal conscience´ that he take a ´stand against intolerance and extremism.´ President Trump quickly hit back on Twitter, writing, ´Now that Ken Frazier of Merck Pharma has resigned from President´s Manufacturing Council,he will have more time to LOWER RIPOFF DRUG PRICES!´
Former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci – also known as ´the Mooch´ – was critical of President Trump´s response to the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia. ´With the moral authority of the presidency, you have to call that stuff out,´ Scaramucci told ABC News´ George Stephanopoulos during his first post-White House interview, airing Sunday morning on This Week. On Saturday, Trump condemned hate ´on many sides,´ which many, including a number of Republicans, interpreted as Trump equating the white supremacists with the counter-protesters, of which one was killed. ´I wouldn´t have recommended that statement,´ said Scaramucci, who held his White House position
A new report suggests the DNC hack, one of several that rocked the 2016 presidential election, was an inside job. According to The Nation, forensic experts and four former NSA employees claim to have new evidence that the Democratic National Committee hack happened locally with a memory key or other portable storage device. The experts speaking to The Nation argue the files were too large to have been transmitted over the internet, therefore they must have happened on site, by someone within the DNC. The Nation´s article reads: ´The volume of the supposedly hacked material and what is called the transfer rate
His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI announced it through the Vatican, to shock and surprise. A poised Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands revealed it in a video uploaded to YouTube, and King Juan Carlos of Spain confirmed it by signing a parliamentary bill. Queen Elizabeth, however, has vowed that abdicate is something she will never do. Abdication is, after all, a dirty word in the corridors of Royal palaces, especially after the earthquake caused when her uncle Edward VIII quit the throne in 1936 to marry the twice-divorced Wallis Simpson. And there is no indication that that will ever change. Yet
President Donald Trump has condemned the violence taking place in Charlottesville Virginia amid a planned white nationalist rally. The president took to Twitter to denounce the white nationalists who stormed the city with tiki torches for a planned ´Unite the Right´ rally. ´We ALL must be united & condemn all that hate stands for,´ he wrote. ´There is no place for this kind of violence in America. Lets come together as one!´ ´Am in Bedminster for meetings & press conference on V.A. & all that we have done, and are doing, to make it better-but Charlottesville sad!´
A police officer, a songwriter and a surgeon who were blocked by on Twitter by Donald Trump are among a group suing the President. A lawsuit has been filed by seven Twitter users who have fallen foul of the commander-in-chief, plus the Knight First Amendment Institute at Columbia University. It has accused Trump of trying to ´suppress dissent´ after the seven criticized him on the social network. Legal papers state: ´In an effort to suppress dissent in this forum, Defendants have excluded—“blocked”—Twitter users who have criticized the President or his policies. ´This practice is unconstitutional, and this suit seeks to end it.´
e-mail View comments Retired Gen. John Kelly, who is working to bring order to the White House as chief of staff, says it is his job to tell ´truth to power´ but then ´salute´ once a decision gets made. ´Remember, telling the unvarnished truth to power doesn´t mean you always get your way,´ Kelly told Fox News in his first interview since he replaced chief of staff Reince Priebus. ´The principal ultimately decides and it is our way that so long as that decision is legal, moral, and ethical, one salutes and executes. Sometimes you win and sometimes you don´t,´
Marshawn Lynch, a runningback for the Oakland Raiders, sat and ate a banana during the national anthem on Saturday before the Raiders’ first preseason football game against the Arizona Cardinals in Glendale, Arizona. Lynch did not play during the game, and the Raiders’ coach said Lynch’s actions were a “non-issue.” Although Lynch said he has been doing this for 11 years, photos and videos show he stood on many occasions for the national anthem in recent years. Lynch reportedly was not present in the locker room after the game, according to CBS Sports. However, the Raiders’ coach, Jack Del Rio, said
The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), America’s largest Muslim civil rights group, is calling on state and local governments all over the United States to tear down all monuments and memorials commemorating Confederate leaders and the short-lived Confederate States of America. CAIR joined several groups asking for the removal of Confederate memorials in the wake of a “Unite the Right” white supremacist rally that turned violent over the weekend. (Snip) Nihad Awad, CAIR’s national executive director, urged state and local governments to erase every symbol and every vestige of Confederate history immediately. “A fitting response to the deadly terror attack
Former RNC chair Michael Steele says there is no other conclusion to be drawn: President Donald Trump is a racist. Speaking on the Steele & Ungar show — which airs on Sirius XM’s POTUS channel — the former RNC head blasted Trump’s response to Charlottesville. “This playing to the – it’s not even baser instincts. This is just raw, ugly, racism and hatred,” Steele said. “What, for votes? And so this is the Frankenstein monster that’s been created from a campaign that gave license to that.” Co-host Rick Ungar mentioned that a listener sent him an email asking if Steele thinks Trump
Mitt Romney fired back at President Trump for saying “both sides” were responsible for violence at a white supremacist rally over the weekend, claiming that the two clashing groups were more “morally different universes.” “No, not the same. One side is racist, bigoted, Nazi. The other opposes racism and bigotry. Morally different universes,” Romney tweeted Tuesday. (Tweet) Romney was responding to Trump’s comments Tuesday that “both sides” were to blame for the violence at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va. on Saturday. Trump drew fire for saying Saturday that "many sides" were to blame for the violence at the
In Gainesville, Florida, workers hired by the Daughters of the Confederacy chipped away at a Confederate soldier´s statue, loaded it quietly on a truck and drove away with little fanfare. In Baltimore, Mayor Catherine Pugh said she´s ready to tear down all of her city´s Confederate statues, and the city council voted to have them destroyed. San Antonio lawmakers are looking ahead to removing a statue that many people wrongly assumed represented a famed Texas leader who died at the Alamo. Some people refused to wait. Protesters in Durham, North Carolina, used a rope to pull down the nearly century-old
If President Trump pardons former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, it “would be an official presidential endorsement of racism,” the American Civil Liberties Union said on Monday. Arpaio, now 85 years old, is famous for his tough stand on illegal immigration. He was convicted two weeks ago of criminal contempt for violating a court order instructing him to stop detaining people suspected of being in the country illegally. Fox News interviewed Trump on Sunday at his club in Bedminster, N.J. “I am seriously considering a pardon for Sheriff Arpaio,” Fox quoted the president as saying. “He has done a lot
Fox News viewers were livid after Dana Perino—long suspected to be someone, like Megyn Kelly, who cares more about the opinions of elites in New York and D.C. than Fox News’ viewers—smeared Breitbart News as a site for Nazis on Monday. It seems like the vapid Fox News host knows less about Breitbart News and the alt-right/new right than the Cuban Missile Crisis, which is saying quite a lot. Perino lashed out at President Donald Trump on The Five for allowing Nazis and the alt-right to seek “safe harbor under his wing” before adding that “the
In the Democrat radio address on Saturday, Rep. Cedric Richmond (D-La.), the chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus, declared that America “is not the land of the free and the home of the brave, where opportunity and prosperity are available to all.” Richmond said he and his fellow Democrats are “painfully aware” that America “has morphed into a country that has turned its back on too many of our families – our rural families, our blue collar families, our minority families, and especially those families working hard to escape poverty.” Richmond used his own life story to show how times
Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett said he plans to sit during the national anthem for the entire season after staying on the bench for the anthem during Seattle’s first preseason game against the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday. Bennett said he was motivated by the events in Charlottesville and wanted to speak out on racial injustice. On Sunday, Bennett remained on the bench with a towel around his shoulder pads while the rest of his teammates stood for the anthem. “First of all I want to make sure people understand I love the military — my father was in the military,” Bennett told reporters. “I love hot dogs like any other
Hundreds of pro-Trump demonstrators and anti-Trump counter-protesters converged at Westlake Park in downtown Seattle on Sunday, resulting in several arrests and the confiscation of weapons. The rally, organized by the conservative group Patriot Prayer, came one day after violent clashes in Charlottesville, Virginia, that left three people dead and dozens injured. Counter-protesters -- including antifa, Industrial Workers of the World (IWW), Veterans for Peace, Indivisible Seattle, Black Lives Matter, and the Freedom Socialist Party -- marched "in solidarity against hate," specifically against what they called “the bigotry, racism and violence" of the "far-right" organizers. Solidarity Against Hate counter-protesters waved communist flags,
A Chick-fil-A customer only realized she got more than she ordered after she bit into her chicken sandwich and found a dead rodent. Ellen Manfalouti, 46, took legal action last week against the fast food restaurant after she found a small rodent baked into her sandwich in Langhorne, Pennsylvania, according to Philly.com. The Holland resident is seeking $50,000 for the Nov. 25 incident. Manfalouti said that a co-worker brought the meal back to their workplace after picking it up from the Chick-fil-A drive-thru. While eating in a conference room, Manfalouti said that she noticed there was something off about the sandwich.
Defense Secretary James Mattis isn’t keeping private any of his feelings about what it means to serve in the U.S. Navy. In an Aug. 9 speech, Mattis bluntly praised Navy sailors for their service, telling them it meant “you’re not some pussy sitting on the sidelines.” “You will have some of the best days of your life and some of the worst days of your life in the U.S. Navy, you know what I mean?” Mattis told sailors stationed at Naval Base Kitsap, in Washington state.
