No food? go steal some land to grow it. No water? go steal some land to drink from.
Its that simple and with the coming years looking bleaker, well all I can say is the USA just stole Libyas water and the Bush family are sat on Peru's largest underground aquifier.
coincidence? don't you believe it.
It's amazing just how oblivious people seem to be with the water situation. I've only watched the first Video so far, and what really troubled me deeply was the beginning and what a person goes through without water, how it degenerates every cell in the body. You see, when you've watched a loved one die slowly, it's very painful. When a person is taken off life support in a Hospital, this is exactly what they do to people. No water, no food no nothing. You have to watch the people you love die of thirst and hunger, sometimes taking up to two weeks, and Doctors call this Humane? Animals have it much better, they go quickly this to me is very disturbing. The Medical System is anything but humane i have to say. Anyways, the only Gold alternative that will be left will be what the men in the British Army were taught in the second world war, which is your own urine, which is sterile. Providing you arent intoxicated or drugged up it will save your life, its also loaded with every vitamin and mineral the body needs. Good post i'm watching the rest now.

Please continue to keep the racoon safe. They are the sweetest of pets, better than a little dog. However, they will love you then leave you. Just as soon as the weather returns to normal the little fellow will be back out in the garden again. But he will remember your kindness. In Japan racoons are pets like as we in the west would have cats as pet. Racoons are very intelligent same as cats are very intelligent. He will be a member of your family just like a cat is a member of the family. In my garden I have hedgehogs that I feed and also foxes too. A really big strong red fox recently died due to natural old age. He was found behind our garden shed. His last resting place. Some squirrels come in occassionally too. Especially since I planted an oak tree for them. In the UK we once had "RED PANDA" but they died out due to lack of habitat and now only exist in few numbers in Scotland on protected estates where they cling on. A red panda is like a racoon but smaller and obviously red. They have a diet much the same as that of a racoon.
Do not worry about the dry conditions. These weather problems have their cycles. They come and go over time. On average the rain levels are probably still normal, but the distribution is out of order. So instead of coming as you might expect in the summer, by contrast all the rain might come in just the winter. The oceans are cooling down which is called LA NINA thus the weather takes on a certain configuration. The weather will return to EL NINO and then the configuration will go back to "normal" again. How do we define "normal" ? Human civilizations are able to get around these problems through international trading. It was exactly such climate changes that stimulated human civilizations into existence. We will survive it through international cooperativeness.
In the UK we are also getting a dry spell. However, it could be a great deal worse.

Each year since 2009 worldwide there has been more and more "insurance" catastrophe's, flooding, drought, storm damage, earthquakes and yes volcanoes. Just take a look at Lloyd's of London underwriters to see each year is costing them more and more.
When I was growing up I watched the news everyday (BBC World Service) and this is NOT normal in my 40 odd years on this planet, my parent's in their 60's do not recall worldwide issues like now due to natural disasters, nor did my grandparents mention this kind of thing. Perhaps a small blip on geological timescales but the planet is definately changing. Back when I was a teenager we had a large famine in Africa (Biafra and later Ethiopia) , and a few bad floods in Bangladesh / Pakistan ... now we have flooding over a huge swathe of the USA, Mexico, Cloumbia, China, Philipines Pakistan, India, Poland, Sri Lanka, Vietnam even the UK ..and lets no forget Oz last year .... usually after droughts .... lovely
So just to cheer us up another food stample in trouble - rice ....
