Paraguay.

When the state nationalizes resources to feed starving people it won't help them, however. Latin America has a rich and glorious tradition of taking land back from filthy pigs.

Paraguay... couldn't remember... thanks... anyone else throwing money at resources there that you know of?

Equador "repatriates" wells after they've been developed and drilled. As a bonus for the people of Equador, they also dismantle any people oriented infrastructure by companies doing that development. Like schools, and health facilities.

I think it is very interesting that Latin America can gloriously take back petroleum production after it is developed, but remains incapable of keeping the schools and health facilities going. Priorities I guess.

Even layers of gravel, sand and grass can purify toxins and take most nuclear fallout out of water, then you have to distill it, and I don't think anyone will obey them and not use rain water if necessary.

Really, this is all about what we do about things. I am never going to obey any of the evil clowns.

They just run their end game plan, alot like Pink's song, funhouse. Really freaked me out when my 10 year old was listening to it.

Its just programming!

I see clean water everywhere! And wide awake, aware people striving to equalize the world. The evil clowns either convert or go to jail.

Or you can just add tonnes of chemicals to the water supply, like where I live



Water Department figures show the use of treatment chemicals increased to a record 47,452 tonnes in 2010-11, up from 32,068 tonnes the previous year.

www.adelaidenow.com.au...

The state of South Australia has a population of 1,640,000 so thats about 29kg or 64lbs of chem per person.
Currently we are converting a petroleum refinery into a desalination plant for drinking water


My dog seems to think that it's safer to drink out of the dunny/toilet bowl
I think he may be right

We're lucky the water is pure here. Very good water.

But you know, there is no reason for world starvation or lack of water, these homes use rain water, and often water can be gotten from the air too with devices, or desalination if needed.

We simply need to provide land and homes for all people, everrywhere and not tie it into employment to slavery.


Fishing in the Phoenix Earthship

They use rain water and recycle it through various uses, but you can add water too! No heating required unless you want it. They self regulate.

Recycled home. Just imagine! I want one!

I'm allergic to the bananas they usually show, so oranges and limes. Lots of roses for rose hips vitamin C, and chickens for organic eggs and a little meat. Share a cow with a few neighbors, or two and share the work.

Good catch!
I was going to respond with that correction and you managed to catch it first. Good posts too BTW.
Also worth mentioning is that some of the Bush cronies have purchased land in Paraguay themselves.

From what I understand at this point, it's really about the Southern Hemisphere being liveable in an Ice Age.

Looks like we'll be needing another ice age soon so people will start fighting the Frost Giant(glacier) again instead of each other
That will replenish our water supplies.

This makes perfect sense. With a rapidly increasing population, an increasingly dryer climate and water resources which are already overalocated, the US is facing a critical water shortage in the not to distant future.

Canada has mass resources of fresh water (which is now defined as a weapon) and a very small military. Therefore it is the moral responsibility of the US to invade Canada, confiscate it's huge volume of weapon of mass destruction, and then send in Haliburton to rebuild the oil fields.

Oh, wait, Haliburton is already there.

If people quit watering lawns and let them get full of those edible drought tollerant weeds, we wouldn't have water shortages and the lawns would be green. What year did grass become part of capitalism.

This is already about to play out very shortly in the southeast US. Lake Lanier in GA is under contention between GA, FL and AL.

Well, we are poisoning our water supply through our industrial agribusiness model as well as wasting it on processes like the converting Canadian Tar sands into crude oil. Companies like Pepsi and Coke have been stealing water for their own profit for who knows how long. As long as profit comes before practicality nothing will change and one thing we cannot live without is water.

In the future only those in the top .1% with have unlimited access to water, and the same will happen with food if we keep destroying our top soil. Massive amounts of the population will parish as planned.

S & F! Bravo!

I just hope that the Great Lakes region stays as fresh as possible being up here around the 42nd parallel north has its advantages.

Fresh fish anyone?

British Summer Time officially starts tonight and already there are talks of hosepipe bans in southern England.
If things carry on this way throughout the rest of spring and summer then things could become quite serious for parts of the UK.

The UK has relatively high levels of rainfall, if we are going to suffer then things could get very serious indeed in more arid areas of the world.
As such I could well imagine water availabilty becoming the source of international friction possibly even war.

Of course there is plenty of water in this world and if we take measures now to run existing supply's efficiently by eliminating the massive amounts of wasteage due to leaks and investing in more projects like The Great Manmade River and desalination projects then we could eliminate a possible future source of major international conflict whilst possibly also help irrigate infertile areas etc.

Sounds so simple doesn't it......unfortunately I very much doubt TPTB would be even remotely interested in helping their fellow human beings.

I'd say more, but if I can't give away military secrets that I should only imply implications.

You mean, stealing when it's convenient? No wonder Latin America is still a giant armpit, by and large.


Stealing when its conveninet? Like two illegal, multi-trillion-dollar wars to streal oil and natty gas from Iraq, Afghanistan, and elsewhere? Stealing like the $3 billion that vanished from the pentagon, or the $16 trillion in banker bailouts?

Need I go on?


No you don't, because what comes out is a load of tripe.

First of, you switch the subject from Latin America being an armpit as it is, to the Middle East. How much oil did we steal from Afghanistan? Please provide the number. Do you even realize how stupid that statement is?

So next time some stupid socialist wacko in Latin America steals something from any company at all (which you applaud), that was real labour, time and money invested by workers and retirees of these companies.

I usually don't trust capitalism to provide much guidance in our daily lives, but I make an exception on this one. Once water becomes pricey where we live, there'll be 10,000 ideas on how to recover and produce it. You can built solar powered desalination plants for one, and frankly since you don't have to convert heat to anything (it simply evaporates water), the tech will be very simple and scalable. If you invest some engineering thought into how to collect natural condensate (dew) you can provide quite some water for a family to drink with some simple installation. All you need is surface area. Note I'm not talking about some distant desert, it will be tough there, but about moderate climate.

My point is that 'western' governments and global corporations could quite easily start investing and funding large scale desalination and irrigation projects and where possible projects like the Great Manmade River in an effort to minimise the effect of water shortage.

Of course it is possible to improve water recycling efficiency in our own homes and depending on the type / size of home utilise rainfall etc, but that wasn't really my point and it's not really relevant in areas where there is relatively little rainfall even at present.

Whilst I understand that many people disagree with me I am firmly of the opinion that governments have a moral responsibility to try and provide basic necessities wherever possible.
In addition these global corporations have made ridiculous amounts of money by exploiting the material wealth of this world and it's people, surely it's time to give something back.

Unfortunately a lot of areas where water is already at a premium have some of the most corrupt and repressive governments in the world and the majority of global corporations are completely amoral.
