Water

By 2020 about 30-40% of the world will have water scarcity, and according to the researchers, climate change can make this even worse.

http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2014/07/140729093112.htm

With only 7% of the world’s freshwater, China plans to produce 807 million gallons a day from desalination by 2020, roughly quadruple the country’s current capacity.

http://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2015-04-09/china-embraces-desalination-to-ease-water-shortages

By 2025, an estimated 1.8 billion people will live in areas plagued by water scarcity, with two-thirds of the world’s population living in water-stressed regions.

http://environment.nationalgeographic.com/environment/freshwater/freshwater-crisis/ 

There will be about 1 billion more mouths to feed worldwide by 2025 and global agriculture alone will require another 1 trillion cubic meters of water per year (equal to the annual flow of 20 Niles or 100 Colorado Rivers).

http://www.interactioncouncil.org/world-confronts-serious-water-crisis-former-heads-government-and-experts-warn-new-report

UN studies project that 30 nations will be water scarce in 2025, up from 20 in 1990.

http://www.aljazeera.com/indepth/features/2011/06/2011622193147231653.html

According to the U.S. Intelligence Community Assessment of Global Water Security, by 2030 humanity’s “annual global water requirements” will exceed “current sustainable water supplies” by 40%.

http://www.theatlantic.com/international/archive/2012/05/the-coming-global-water-crisis/256896/

Water demand in India will reach 1.5 trillion cubic meters in 2030 while India’s current water supply is only 740 billion cubic meters.

http://www.mckinsey.com/client_service/sustainability/latest_thinking/charting_our_water_future

If current usage trends don’t change, the world will have only 60 percent of the water it needs in 2030.

http://www.nytimes.com/aponline/2015/03/20/world/asia/ap-world-water-crisis.html?_r=0

By 2035, the world’s energy consumption will increase by 35 percent, which in turn will increase water use by 15 percent according to the International Energy Agency.

http://www.worldbank.org/en/news/feature/2014/01/16/will-water-constrain-our-energy-future

By the year 2040 there will not be enough water in the world to quench the thirst of the world population and keep the current energy and power solutions going if we continue doing what we are doing today.

http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2014/07/140729093112.htm

The number of people living in river basins under severe water stress is projected to reach 3.9 billion by 2050, totaling over 40% of the world’s population.

http://www.globalwaterforum.org/2012/05/21/water-outlook-to-2050-the-oecd-calls-for-early-and-strategic-action/

Compared to today, five times as much land is likely to be under “extreme drought” by 2050.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/science/nature/6068348.stm

Feeding 9 billion people by 2050, will require a 60 percent increase in agricultural production and a 15 percent increase in water withdrawals.

http://www.worldbank.org/en/topic/water/overview

Water demand is projected to grow by 55 percent by 2050 (including a 400-percent rise in manufacturing water demand).

http://arstechnica.com/science/2012/03/hot-crowded-and-running-out-of-fuel-earth-of-2050-a-scary-place/

By 2050, 1 in 5 developing countries will face water shortages (UN’s Food and Agriculture Organization).

http://www.csmonitor.com/World/Global-Issues/2012/1202/Global-water-crisis-too-little-too-much-or-lack-of-a-plan

Between 2050 and 2100, there is an 85 percent chance of a drought in the Central Plains and Southwestern United States lasting 35 years or more.

    Now that’s a fucking incredible piece of work Loki. For those of us that are paying attention this is what we instinctively know. However this is still a home run extraordinaire! Some of the comments are spot on like the “hammers to the face” one. Still hammers to the face is what is required. You, I and several thousand(?) others know full well we are royally fucked. Still hopefully we’ll get a couple of more good growing seasons before this civilization grinds to a full stop and takes everything that is decent down with it. The wheels have long ago fell off and momentum is all that is keeping it running. Size matters! I don’t post on reddit or a lot of other places that require you to sign up. I will be posting this link at my little ranting location over on Minds. I started there on the 9th, December and have more views already than I would’ve ever imagined 1952 views as of this writing. I also include a lot of geopolitical shit over there to kind of point to where our eyes are being turned, you know distraction. Steady as she goes old boy. To quote an old Canadian philosopher Red Green: “We’re all in this together.” My little piece of discontent:
