Im going to reply to this post out of order.
I hope you haven't ruined my thread, but with only 5 reply's, I'm afraid you have.
No, we didnt ruin it, this topic has been addressed a number of times and people get sick of repeating themselves. Frankly, Ive addressed this issue
a couple of times and figured Id throw my .02 in to give this thread a hand. Had I known you wanted a specific answer, I wouldnt have bothered.

Definitely not the direction I wanted the thread to go in, Water will always be available to us, it falls from the skies, its underground in wells,
its in our lakes, its even in sea water if you simply boil it. Worrying about a water shortage is nonsense.
Water will always be available to us, yes, but drinkable water? No, afraid not. Boiling water does not remove heavy metals or neurotoxins, it only
removes bacteria, besides, not everyone has access to the sea or ocean. Those that survive off water coming from, say the great lakes, dont have much
of a choice when it comes to what source to drink from. And with the heavy metals being dumped into that supply, it certainly limits what you can
As for ground supplies, they are just as easily contaminated by say, agriculture runoff and industrial runoff. You mean to tell me, that instead of
supporting a monoploy control over the water industry, the market is going to be flooded with cheap effective purifying systems? Again, im afraid
Falling from the sky? Dont forget, it has to be picked up from the ground first. Whatever contaminants are in the water on the ground ultimately
fall from the sky.
I was talking about something that would promote human growth both economically, but view things not so focused on our current high on oil as an ever
increasing commodity. take us to the next generation so to speak.
Considering all the items you listed have a deep history of exploitation attached to them, why would we think that the next largescale commodity would
be any different?
