They're really going to push for this water shortage thing.
Gotta capitalize on one of the most abundant resources on the planet.
Gotta get the pump primed by working everybody into a frenzy with the same tired, old, worn out "we're-running-out get-em-while-they-last" sales pitch.
The truth is, chances are good you have previously drank water that used to be dinosaur pee at one time.
OUR WATER ISN'T GOING ANYWHERE - FOR GODS SAKE, THE PLANET IS 70% WATER.
THE SAME WATER THAT IS HERE NOW HAS BEEN HERE FOR MILLIONS OF YEARS.
Next they'll try to tell us there's an air shortage if they can figure out a way to privatize and monetize that.

If only the religious people would wake up and smell reality, they would stop having more than 2 kids and overpopulating the world like a plague. I say religious people because it's part of their "belief" that they need to have as many kids as possible and that it is all "a god's work". Non-religious people have more than 2 also and are part of the problem as well.
Water wars coming, I called this about 5 years ago. What does your "god" say about bringing too many people to the world, only to starve, die and suffer, and start massive resource wars? That's the endgame for religion.

The above is the best reason I know for shutting down fossil fuel and nuclear electricity sources.
Nothing else even comes close to realistically meeting our energy needs. As a matter of fact we need to go near 100% nuclear, and get away from fossil fuel entirely.

4. Pumping the Great Lakes empty (nestle i believe) fast forward to 2014 the Great Lakes are the fullest they have ever been
Scientists believe the world has a constant amount of water, but that it exists at any one time in various solid-liquid-gas and fresh-salt proportions. Human life is ‘good’ when there is sufficient fresh liquid water to meet our total needs. The problem is that climate change alters the proportion of liquid fresh water and its location. Some regions of the world end up with less, and others end up with more. When this becomes chronic through regular droughts and/or flooding, the quality of life for people in those regions is seriously affected. And this is happening more and more across the planet.
