Food Shortages, Glimpse Into Your Future?


By 2050 Earth will be home to nine billion people and the planet will struggle to feed the world’s population.

From Fox News Latino

“Venezuela at Risk of Food Shortage”

“The shortage in basic commodities such as rice and milk has become such a problem that Venezuelans have taken to lining up in front of supermarkets as early as dawn in hopes of getting their hands on the scant supplies. Looting and food shortages have become commonplace.

Shortages in basic commodities have become so bad that President Nicolas Maduro has advised citizens to become producers of food in their own home, stating that he and his wife, Cilia, raise 50 chickens themselves, Fox News Latino reports.”

Are you aware of the water shortages and depleted aquifers below?

On November 24, 1922 in Santa Fe, New Mexico the water in the Colorado River was promised or allocated to seven states and each was allotted a share of the river. The amount of water or river flow was divided up based on a twenty year river flow study that had just been completed. Today looking back we know that the twenty year study time period was the wettest twenty in the past hundred years. Tree ring studies now tell us the past hundred years was one of the wettest hundred year period in the past thousand years. The river was millions of gallons over allocated the day they signed the Compact.

The Ogallala is the largest aquifer in the United States. It was charged or filled with water from the melting glaciers around ten thousand years ago. The available water in this underground aquifer has been declining since the first electric pumps were put to work. It is not a question of will it be pumped dry, rather a matter of when it will no longer be capable of supplying water to the land above.

Satellite studies now allow science to better understand how much water is in the aquifers below ground. The recent study of the California Central Valley aquifer shows large water losses. The Central Valley produces a large amount and variety of foods. This food is consumed by all of America. Science believes the aquifer below the Central Valley lost enough water to fill Lake Mead during a short study period. Lake Mead is above Hoover Dam on the Colorado River and the largest man made lake in America. As the water table falls in California there is a well drilling free for all going on with large wealthy farmers drilling deeper and deeper wells.

Whole towns have already lost the municipal supply wells to thousands of people.

Droughts and mega droughts have brought cultures and civilizations to their demises throughout history.

Do you want a secure water future? Do you understand aquifer and surface water over allocation? Are you confident that you can go out and make informed decisions in your quest for a reliable secure water future?

Water rights, both ground water and surface flowing water rights to put the water to your own personal beneficial use are available today.
