This isnt a psychic prediction, just an educated guess.
In college I had a surface water class in regards to my major. I had to write a paper at the end of the class on any topic I chose as long as it
involved freshwater. As a googled different topics I was amazed to see how many conflicts came up over water rights and even battles fought over
fresh water. This was in 2005. It was a topic I was always passionate about and have stayed researching since college. Several observations I have
seen over the last decade lead me to believe the title of this thread.
1) Aquifers are not replenishing.
2) Fracking and other processes are contaminating fresh water.
3) Desert is the only expanding biome that I am aware of.
Places are spending huge amounts of money on infastructure for
water. As well as in research.
5) I have been reading more and more on how energy companies are wishing to fine people for using solar/wind etc because they havent quite figured out
how to balance the grid with people using these techs.
6) We have little to no infrastructure for the desalination of salt water option.
As the cost of energy goes down the cost of something else has to go up. Fracking surprisingly is working out well financially, but causing problems
environmentally. I think in 15 years you will see the cost of water rise while the cost of energy goes down. This may not be a very impressive
prediction, but its a topic that can really be split into other forums such as peak oil or conspiracy. Fresh water, like food, could really be used
against us in several ways. In a nerdy way its one of my favorite topics that just doesn't quite make people worry as much as other topics. Perhaps
we have enough to worry about....that reminds me of a great Jack Handy quote “Somebody told me it was frightening how much topsoil we are losing
each year, but I told that story around the campfire and nobody got scared”
Enjoy! Another something to make you worry!
