Cities to run out of fresh water by 2024
and this is where will go dry first

Daily Express [UK], by Rebecca Flood

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 6/17/2017 7:55:43 AM

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.

Is this the article about running out of water because General Mattis wants to give the Middle East an enema?

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.

My apologies for the 5th grade science lesson.

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.

71% of the earth is covered in water. 3.5% pf that is fresh water in lakes, streams, ponds and aquifers.

When large cities are built in deserts, i.e. Los Angeles and Las Vegas, those areas can quickly outgrow easily accessable fresh water.

Its long past time that places like California start building desalinization plants. And perhaps stop building golf courses in the desert.

Fake news, of course. Iqaluit will only run out of water if they are too lazy to go fetch it. Blather.

As for California and Las Vegas, I don´t care if they run out of water. If they all want to live on top of each other, they can pay for the desalinization plants, . .

Let´s build a giant faucet in the sky - - powered by solar and wind, of course - - and then aim it at wherever there´s a drought.

Simple solution to a complex problem - - and it makes just as much sense as "crippling climate change."

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.

Iqaluit? I´ll have Nunavut!

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!).

Most shortages seem to be not because of any out of the ordinary lack of rain but rather because of an expanding population and a failure of leaders to build facilities.

In the US many communities find environmental challenges against building reservoirs via insurmountable regulations and continuous lawsuits.

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´?

Donald Trump has hit out at Barack Obama following claims the former President had knowledge of Russia trying to hack the US election but allegedly failed to do anything about it. The Washington Post reported on Friday that the CIA had top-level intelligence last August that Russian President Vladimir Putin personally ordered an operation to help Trump win the US presidential race. Trump has now spoken out about the claims and questioned why Obama refused to act in an interview that is set to air Sunday on Fox & Friends Weekend. ´Well I just heard today for the first time that Obama knew

Jolted by an attack on Marawi on May 23, Indonesia, Malaysia and the Philippines have launched joint patrols to control the movement of militants across their archipelagic region and their foreign ministers gathered in Manila on Thursday for talks.

Washington - The closely guarded Senate health care bill written entirely behind closed doors finally became public Thursday in a do-or-die moment for the Republican Party´s winding efforts to repeal Obamacare. The unveiling of the 142-page bill marks the first time that the majority of senators get a look at the plan to overhaul America´s health care system. With Majority Leader Mitch McConnell pressing ahead for a vote next week, senators now only a handful of days to decide whether to support or vote against the bill.

The calls for Pelosi to vacate her top spot came after Tuesday´s election loss in Georgia with Democrat Jon Ossoff being routed by Republican Karen Handel.

European Council president Donald Tusk tweeted on Thursday while hosting an EU summit in Brussels: 'Agreed. EU will extend economic sanctions against Russia.' The move has come about in relation to Russia's failure to implement measures promised in a peace agreement. After Thursday's political decision, the sanctions will be formally extended for another six months, through to January.

President Donald Trump has said he will pursue legislation that would bar immigrants from being eligible for welfare for at least five years. At a rally in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, last night he said ´the time has come´ for ´new immigration rules´ that would require those seeking admission to the country to be able to support themselves financially and would bar the use of welfare for a period of at least five years. He said his administration would be ´putting in legislation to that effect very shortly.´ It is unclear, however, how Trump´s proposal would change the current situation.

GOP turnout confounds
pollsters in Georgia election

Jon Ossoff was on a trajectory to defeat Karen Handel narrowly, poised to deliver a humiliating blow to the White House in a race billed as a referendum of Donald Trump’s early months in office. Then the Republican voters in Georgia’s 6th Congressional District unexpectedly showed up in droves. Pollsters say sky-high turnout drove Handel, the GOP nominee, to a nearly 4-point victory on Tuesday, despite most pre-election surveys showing Ossoff with a small-but-shrinking lead. Mathematically, a 4-point loss for a Democratic House candidate in a district that has traditionally elected Republicans by wide margins is an encouraging result for

California is restricting publicly funded travel to four more states because of recent laws that leaders here view as discriminatory against gay and transgender people. All totaled, California now bans most state-funded travel to eight states. The new additions to California’s restricted travel list are Texas, Alabama, Kentucky and South Dakota. They join Kansas, Mississippi, North Carolina and Tennessee as states already subjected to the ban. California Attorney Xavier Becerra announced the new states at a Thursday press conference, where he was joined by representatives from ACLU Northern California and Equality California.

(Facebook) - Former President Barack Obama took to Facebook to ask Republicans to reconsider their efforts to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, also known as ObamaCare. "I recognize that repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act has become a core tenet of the Republican Party," Obama wrote. "Still, I hope that our senators, many of whom I know well, step back and measure what’s really at stake, and consider that the rationale for action, on health care or any other issue, must be something more than simply undoing something that Democrats did." He argued that the Republican health care bill

In a year that he would like to forget, which included his acrimonious divorce to Amber Heard, Johnny Depp appeared at a Q&A at the new Cinemageddon stage at Glastonbury. Introducing his 2004 film The Libertine, about a 17th-century poet who notoriously drank himself to an early death, the 54-year-old chose to discuss American politics. "I think [Donald] Trump needs help," he said. "There are a lot of dark places he could go." He added: "I´m not insinuating anything - by the way this will be in the press and it will be horrible - but when was the last

Most illegal immigrants who pay taxes have stolen someone else’s legal identity, and the IRS doesn’t do a very good job of letting those American citizens and legal immigrants know they’re being impersonated, the tax agency’s inspector general said in a new report released Thursday. The theft creates major problems for the American citizens and legal foreign workers whose identities are stolen, and who have to deal with explaining money they never earned. But the IRS only manages to identify half of the potentially 1.4 million people likely affected by the fraud in 2015, the Treasury Inspector General for Tax

[…] John Anzalone, Ossoff’s pollster, said the Democrat’s campaign succeeded in turning out its voters — but they were swamped by Republicans who came out in numbers that ended up dwarfing previous high-profile special elections (link) That’s a very interesting admission/statement for a Politico article. That’s also an example of what happens when President Trump’s ‘Monster Vote‘ turns out. (Politico) Jon Ossoff was on a trajectory to defeat Karen Handel narrowly, poised to deliver a humiliating blow to the White House in a race billed as a referendum of Donald Trump’s early months in office. Then the Republican voters in

The deadly collision between a U.S. destroyer and a container ship June 17 took place while the freighter was on autopilot, according to Navy officials. The Philippines-flagged cargo ship ACX Crystal was under control of a computerized navigation system that was steering and guiding the container vessel, according to officials familiar with preliminary results of an ongoing Navy investigation. Investigators so far found no evidence the collision was deliberate. Nevertheless, an accident during computerized navigation raises the possibility the container ship´s computer system could have been hacked and the ship deliberately steered into the USS Fitzgerald, an Arleigh Burke-class guided missile destroyer.

Attorneys for Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl want to ask potential jurors in a court-martial for their views on President Trump and whether they voted for him, according to news reports Wednesday. At a pretrial hearing Wednesday, Berdahl´s lawyers submitted the questions to the judge in the case, out of concern that jurors may be swayed by negative comments Trump made in the presidential campaign about the soldier. "The principal issue has to do with ensuring we are able to identify people who have been nominated to be on the court-martial panel — the jury — who are not in a

President Donald Trump has said he will pursue legislation that would bar immigrants from being eligible for welfare for at least five years. At a rally in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, last night he said ´the time has come´ for ´new immigration rules´ that would require those seeking admission to the country to be able to support themselves financially and would bar the use of welfare for a period of at least five years. He said his administration would be ´putting in legislation to that effect very shortly.´ It is unclear, however, how Trump´s proposal would change the current situation.

President Obama has been out of office only a few months. But he might have both a street and an L.A. freeway named after him soon. Los Angeles City Council President Herb Wesson has proposed renaming Rodeo Road in southwest L.A. “Obama Boulevard” in honor of the president. Wesson noted that Obama held a campaign rally at Rancho Cienega Park on Rodeo Road when running for president and that the area already has streets named after presidents (Washington, Jefferson, Adams). In May, a plan to name a stretch of the 134 Freeway after Obama moved forward with approval from the

MSNBC “Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzezinski compared President Donald Trump’s administration to North Korea Friday, saying “It does feel like a developing dictatorship.” “I will say you can do some work reading history and reading books about how dictatorship happen. The development of very negative forces taking over and what you are seeing is either this happening right now, or someone who’s not well. Very few options,” Brzezinski continued. Co-host Joe Scarborough tried to lighten to mood during the segment, saying, “I think it’s actually more like Hogan’s Heroes if anything else.” Brzezinski she quietly rebuked Trump once more saying

President Trump said Thursday he has "no idea" if there are recordings of his conversations with former FBI Director James Comey. "With all of the recently reported electronic surveillance, intercepts, unmasking and illegal leaking of information, I have no idea … whether there are ‘tapes´ or recordings of my conversations with James Comey, but I did not make, and do not have, any such recordings," Trump said in a two separate tweets Thursday. The president´s announcement caps weeks of speculation as to whether the president had kept recordings of his discussions with Comey, who he fired last month. Trump himself
