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.

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.

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´?

President Trump´s Monday night address on Afghanistan garnered approximately 27.7 viewers, Nielsen Media Research said. As far as Afghanistan speeches go, that didn´t set a record. President Obama attracted 40 million viewers to their televisions for a speech on Afghanistan during his first year in office, in December 2009, the Hill newspaper pointed out. Part of the 12 million person difference may have been, however, because of the time of year While August days are long and sunny, there are generally more TV watchers in December because the days are short and cold, the Hill noted.

Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner are among a set of White House aides pushing President Trump to allow illegal immigrants brought to the U.S. as children to stay, in an effort to get Democrats to fund the president´s border wall. McClatchy reported that the group of White House officials have suggested using so-called ´Dreamers´ as a bargaining chip, in order to check off some of the president´s campaign promises on immigration, including the wall, additional detention facilities, an E-verify system for employers and cuts to legal immigration. However, such a move would break another campaign promise, as candidate Donald Trump had pledged

Buck, 62, who has given money to names such as Hillary Clinton and Jerry Brown, has been accused by other escorts of instructing them to ingest dangerous amounts of drugs for pay.

CALLS to destroy Nelson’s Column in London’s Trafalgar Square in the wake of the Charlottesville riots has sparked outrage. Britons were accused of “intellectual laziness” for not bringing down the famous statue in central London sooner. Violent protests broke out in Virginia last week in an angry dispute over the removal of a statue of confederate figure General Lee. One person was killed and dozens injured in the riots after right-wing protestors took to the streets in a rally against the decision and clashes with counter-demonstrators. Now statues across the world could see the same fate - with London’s monument to Lord Nelson which

A number of powerful democrats are believed to have approached Braun, 36, because they feel their current candidates are flawed. Politician and lawyer Jerry Brown, 79, has been running the state since taking over from former bodybuilder Arnold Schwarzenegger in 2011. Braun - who also manages Ariana Grande, Usher and Kanye West - has been getting more and more involved in politics in recent years, even hosting a fundraiser for Hillary Clinton in 2015.

DONALD Trump has agreed to send an additional 4,000 troops to fight the war in Afghanistan, a senior US official revealed. The US President has long been sceptical of the US approach in the region, where the Afghan war is in its 16th year. Former Trump deputy campaign manager David Bossie said: "I think he is going to give [his generals] a chance to prove what they want and their strategy.” Defence Secretary Jim Mattis told US Congress in June “we are not winning in Afghanistan”. When asked about Afghanistan earlier this month, Trump said: “I took over a mess, and we´re

President Trump is battling to prevent another key aide quitting in what would be a major blow to his administration´s credibility. Gary Cohn, Trump´s chief economic adviser, is said to be ´deeply dismayed´ by the president´s response to the white nationalist rallies in Virginia. Sources have claimed Cohn, who is Jewish, is ´deeply upset´ and ´disgusted´ by Trump´s defense of white nationalists, many of whom were wearing ´Make America Great Again´ baseball caps. Friends have now urged Mr Cohn to stand down from White House business advisory councils. He was said to have reached a ´real inflection point´ according to Vanity Fair, citing

Washington - Sen. Tim Scott says President Donald Trump can regain his moral authority on the issue of race by spending time with people who have lived through the nation's difficult racial past. The South Carolina Republican said last week that Trump's moral authority had become comprised after the president made comments that appeared to equate neo-Nazis and white supremacists with those who came out to oppose them in Charlottesville, Virginia. Scott says what's important at this point is not what Trump says next, but what he does. Scott says that without a personal connection to the pain that racism has caused,

“There must always” be a flow low-skilled immigration to the United States, no matter its impact on American workers, according to Republican establishment figure Senator Jeff Flake (R-AZ). Flake slammed the idea of potentially cutting legal immigration levels in half to raise the wages of American workers and end the current low-skilled oriented system to make only admit immigrants based on their skills and merit in a New York Times op-ed. Senators Tom Cotton (R-AR) and David Perdue (R-GA) introduced the specific plan, known as the “RAISE Act.” President Donald Trump endorsed the plan and said the legislation “will reduce poverty, increase

Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner are among a set of White House aides pushing President Trump to allow illegal immigrants brought to the U.S. as children to stay, in an effort to get Democrats to fund the president´s border wall. McClatchy reported that the group of White House officials have suggested using so-called ´Dreamers´ as a bargaining chip, in order to check off some of the president´s campaign promises on immigration, including the wall, additional detention facilities, an E-verify system for employers and cuts to legal immigration. However, such a move would break another campaign promise, as candidate Donald Trump had pledged

The Rev. Jesse Jackson on Sunday gave a strong endorsement to the movement for removing monuments to leaders of the Confederacy and called for the electoral college to be abolished. Speaking at the Islamic Center of Southern California, Jackson blamed the electoral college system, giving disproportionate influence to less populated states, for the 2000 and 2016 loss of Democratic presidential candidates Al Gore and Hillary Clinton despite their winning the popular vote. “Today we are looking at a structural problem,” Jackson said. “These monuments must go. Calling for the audience to repeat, he said, “Say the monuments and the flags

WASHINGTON — The Secret Service can no longer pay hundreds of agents it needs to carry out an expanded protective mission – in large part due to the sheer size of President Trump´s family and efforts necessary to secure their multiple residences up and down the East Coast. Secret Service Director Randolph "Tex´´ Alles, in an interview with USA TODAY, said more than 1,000 agents have already hit the federally mandated caps for salary and overtime allowances that were meant to last the entire year. The agency has faced a crushing workload since the height of the contentious election season, and it

And with Oregon being the first to see the eclipse, it and neighboring state Washington are experiencing the worst bouts of the traffic jams. ´This is the biggest transportation event that has ever hit Oregon,´ Dave Thompson, a spokesman for the Oregon Department of Transportation told AP.

A Texas college campus removed four statues of prominent Confederate figures in an overnight sweep, according to reports. The statues of Gen. Robert E. Lee, Gen.

The eclipse that occurred over Chicago led thousands to the beaches and streets, where they gasped and cried out as the sun partially disappeared. For WGN meteorologist Tom Skilling, it was an especially awe-inspiring event. The famed meteorologist hugged and high-fived people around him and wept as the eclipse occurred Monday afternoon. "Oh, my word," Skilling said. "Wow. This is amazing. What do you think of this, this?" At another point, he told viewers, "I´ll get my act together, guys." His voice cracking, Skilling apologized for his tears. Skilling´s heartfelt reaction earned him praise from fans:

As the face of CNN, Anderson Cooper makes a very good living as wealthy, privileged white man casting judgments of affiliation upon his political enemies. This includes taking a handful of idiotic white supremacists and declaring they represent millions of Republicans/conservatives, pro-America, Trump supporters, etc. And yet Mr. Cooper himself has a much closer affiliation to slavery than he likely wants his leftist viewers to know. As a descendant of the Vanderbilt family, one of the wealthiest “old money” families in American history, Cooper is a direct descendant of big time slave owners. Cooper’s great-great grandfather, Cornelius Vanderbilt, owned several plantations,

President Trump’s “America First” base was the biggest loser of Trump’s speech on Afghanistan Monday night, and many quickly expressed their disappointment at the business-as-usual address from the president who had once promised to limit American intervention abroad and focus on nation-building at home. Trump’s speech, in which he pledged to increase the number of troops in the 16-year-war, was the first since the departure of Chief Strategist Steve Bannon and confirmed the fears of many on the right that without a strong nationalist voice in the West Wing, the President would revert to the same old fare that Americans had

Students at Howard University, a top-rated historically black college in Washington D.C., took to social media to express their anger over a group of white high school girls wearing pro-Trump clothing who visited the campus on Saturday. Some tweets referring to their visit also suggested the white high school girls should be beaten up. One of the high school guests, in a social media post of her own, said they were simply visiting the school’s cafeteria to get food as part of a larger tour of the nation’s capital, and faced a barrage of insults and aggressive acts, including having
