Be Afraid. The Future Might Be Grim. Redfern says, that, although today we take water for granted, the time may come when “there will be widespread control and regulation of who gets water and how much.” The CDC says: ” Most of your fluid needs are met through the water and beverages you drink.” You can also get water though soups, celery, tomatoes and melons. We need water for countless reasons. One reason is for the removal of toxic wastes from the system. Another reason is to keep the body at 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit. When we dehydrate to dangerous levels, heatstroke can occur. Death will follow if measures are not taken. Water also keeps our joints supple and keeps the spinal cord healthy. Water is the one thing we cannot do without. One way we could find ourselves slaves to the Controllers is through the regulation of the world’s water supply. And, says Redfern, it could really happen, all too easily. Redfern cautions: “The stark fact is that when the population of the planet reaches ten or eleven billion–perhaps even twenty billion–the time may come when someone in power will resort to drastic actions–namely, placing a limit on the one thing that ensures life.” The UN has studied this looming problem. “According to the Millennium Development Goals Report 2012, 783 million people, or 11% of the world’s population, remain without access to an improved source of drinking water… The world has met the MDG (?) drinking water target five years ahead of schedule, but work is not yet completely done” (Redfern). Redfern agrees that it ‘certainly’ is not done; “statistics demonstrate that in Sub-Saharan Africa close to 50% of all people lack the necessary daily levels of water that are vital to long-term health and survival.” Something sinister is happening, as if this global crisis weren’t enough. In 2012 Market Oracle and Global Research wrote that “A disturbing trend in the water sector is accelerating worldwide. The new ‘water barons’–the Wall Street banks and elitest multibillionaires–are buying up water all over the world at an unprecedented pace” (Redfern). The banks include JPMorgan Chase, HSBC, Goldman Sachs, Barclays, Credit Suisse; these are at the forefront of the herd, meddling with the survival of all of us and, no, says Redfern, that is not an exaggeration. And it’s not only the banks clamoring for water. The Bush family has seen how controlling water is the next big thing. Natural News, another publication, explored the issue of who has the right to “own” water–and who doesn’t. What about water control? Nestle CEO Peter Brabeck commented that “the world’s water will soon come under the control of corporations like his” (Redfern). Further, he said “that no one should have a ‘right’ to water. Water supplies should be carefully and strictly controlled by governments and corporations.” Brabeck hopes to achieve the ‘privatization’ of water, to the detriment to the rest of the world. He says water should be ‘delegated,’ which Redfern says is “truly sinister terminology.” Natural News even sees the day when “we might actually be fined by power-hungry scum for drinking rain water that falls from the sky.” It’s already happened. A man collecting rainwater was fined for collecting and using rainwater. Time Magazine cited a UN report that water resources will soon meet only 60% of the world’s needs. Water rather than possessions will become the world’s most sought after commodity. It will be a case of life or death for billions. Scientists at JPL say that we must find out how much ground water we have left; we are consuming it rapidly. One-third of the world’s 40 aquifers are not being recharged with water. Eight aquifers are “overstressed.” In dry areas the problem is critical. Climate change is making things worse. There are political and socio-economic problems in some places that are exacerbating the water delivery systems. There are rebellions, civil wars and invasions. Redfern says water problems could lead to a state of anarchy–if water becomes scarce or becomes controlled or regulated. The Arabian Aquifer provides water for 60 million people; it is the most overstressed aquifer on the planet. Who can imagine what those people will do if that aquifer dries up? The fact is we have no idea when our water is going to run out. It could be 2030 or 3030.
