The Global Pressures of Population and Access to Clean Water: The US Census Bureau’s World Clock says that the population of the world today is estimated at 7.008 billion people, while projections show that the world could reach the 9 billion marker by 2050. In the last of its series called “7 Billion: Conversations That Matter,” Aspen Institute’s Global Health and Development today hosted a panel of experts based in Africa and the United States on the interconnectedness of gender issues, family planning, population and access to safe water.
The point of the series was to ask questions about why it mattered that the world was passing the 7 billion mark, and the questions today in Washington were appropriately big: Will water wars replace oil wars? What are the solutions to expand water and sanitation to the 2.5 billion people who don’t have it? And just how many people can the world support in an equitable fashion?
Freshwater rivers and lakes are subject to seasonal floods and droughts that can limit their availability for people and for agriculture. At present only 5% of arable land is irrigated. Now scientists have for the first time been able to carry out a continent-wide analysis of the water that is hidden under the surface in aquifers. Researchers from the British Geological Survey and University College London (UCL) have mapped in detail the amount and potential yield of this groundwater resource across the continent.
"Where there's greatest ground water storage is in northern Africa, in the large sedimentary basins, in Libya, Algeria and Chad," she said. "The amount of storage in those basins is equivalent to 75m thickness of water across that area - it's a huge amount." Who would have thought? Water, Water, Water — Libya’s Hidden Asset: The Great Man-Made River, as the largest water transport project ever undertaken, has been described as the “eighth wonder of the world”. It carries more than five million cubic metres of water per day across the desert to coastal areas, vastly increasing the amount of arable land. The total cost of the huge project is expected to exceed $25 billion (US).
The Life and Secrets of Water: Experts in the scientific communities as well as homeopathy and holistic sciences have proven the “Memory” of water; the carrying capacity of water for “energy,” and the ability of water to “remember”.
Experts realize that water retains information, even after the most stringent purification and filtration processes. This is termed the energy signature or vibrational imprint. The vibrational imprint of toxins (mercury, lead, chromium, etc.) can be picked up by the water molecule and are in turn passed on to living organisms. As you see from the pictures below, words, thoughts and sounds directly affect the water in your body and all living organisms.
Clean water for the entire world an ambitious goal but thanks to man an impossible endeavor
Water, water everywhere and not enough to drink or use
We will survive however with growing climatic destruction and a growing permanent hungry nomadic world population remember the Movie Soylent Green?
The end result has long been here! Growing worlds water wars

Scientists say enough water to fill earths oceans 3 times deep in the earth, that should scare the hell out of everyone
Scientists say there is lots and lots of water trapped deep in the Earth:Scientists have long theorized a mass of hidden water was somewhere below, but a group of geologists from Northwestern University are the first to offer evidence.The geologists found the water while studying a vast stretch of Earth's mantle called the transition zone. The vast underground region extends across much of North America.
The water, enough to fill the oceans three times over, is hiding in a mineral called ringwoodite some 400 miles beneath Earth's crust. "Geological processes on the Earth's surface, such as earthquakes or erupting volcanoes, are an expression of what is going on inside the Earth, out of our sight," Jacobsen said.
This scares the hell out of me. Look what we have done to absolutely everything we lay our hands on. The core of the planet? Look at what we have done to the air and land. Look what we have done to the earth with fracking and our lust for energy. Will the absolute destruction wrought by Fracking matter in the end?
Look at the death and destruction we have wrought on our oceans the very source of our life.We are killing ourselves not just the ocean, our food supply,and the planet
Now the world is fighting to destroy what is left of the Arctic which many feel is the source of many of our future problems not to speak of all the on going war and future wars to come. The world is fighting to destroy the Arctic
I am scared to death knowing that the idiots in charge of us now know that near the center of the earth is more fresh water than we can use. What the hell are they going to do to get at it?
My God! There is no end until they totally use this planet up and destroy man and the planet.

PHOTOS: Shanghai’s Unbelievable Pollution Problem Started The Week Badly, Ended Worse: For the seventh day this month, Shanghai officials have warned children and the elderly to stay inside in a city where 24 hours exposed to the off-the-charts pollution would have hazardous consequences to one’s health.
Hundreds of flights and sporting events have been cancelled, while face masks and air purifiers sold out in stores. All week, the pollution level hovered at “heavily” and “severely” polluted, according to Shanghai’s Air Quality Index, at up to 31 times the recommended levels.Eerie photographs of Shanghai show a city in a yellow haze:
Super smog hits north China city: Visibility shrank to less than half a football field and small-particle pollution soared to a record 40 times higher than an international safety standard in one northern Chinese city as the region entered its high-smog season. Winter typically brings the worst air pollution to northern China because of a combination of weather conditions and an increase in the burning of coal for homes and municipal heating systems, which usually start on a specific date. For the large northern city of Harbin, the city's heating systems kicked in Sunday, and on Monday visibility there was less than 50 meters, according to state media.
200,000 people die every year in China because of air pollution.
Beijing's Pollution Alarms Neighbors, environmental secrecy angers public and the world
*In China, public anger over secrecy on environment: When China's environment ministry told attorney Dong Zhengwei he couldn't have access to two-year old data about soil pollution because it was a "state secret", it added to mounting public outrage over the worsening environment.
Microbloggers, state media and even delegates to this week's session of the National People's Congress, the largely rubber-stamp parliament, were already critical of the government for poor air and water quality. Now they are also expressing disquiet over the scarcity of information about the environment available to them.
*The bad news is that the country's hell-bent drive towards industrialization has brought in its train a host of collateral problems, not the least of which is pollution. Last month Beijing's air pollution soared past levels considered hazardous by the World Health Organization (WHO).
*Prior to that, the government often played down the pollution in Beijing, insisting it was merely fog, despite evidence to the contrary that was plain for all to see. Earlier this year, following public pressure resulting from hourly air-quality readings first published in 2011 by the U.S. embassy in Beijing, which Chinese authorities had previously denounced as "foreign interference," the municipal officials took notice.
Pollution in China is one aspect of the broader topic of environmental issues in China. Various forms of pollution have increased as China has industrialized, which has caused widespread environmental and health problems. According to the World Bank in 2007, 16 of the world's 20 most polluted cities are in China.
*China, in Guangdong it is Province is made up of four small villages. It is the location of what may be the largest electronic waste (e-waste) site on earth.: Once a rice village, the pollution has made Guiyu unable to produce crops for food and the water of the river is undrinkable. Guiyu as an e-waste hub was first documented fully in December 2001 by the Basel Action Network.
For example, a November 2008 news story by 60 Minutes, a popular US TV news program, documented the illegal shipments of electronic waste from recyclers in the US to Guiyu. While taping part of the story on-site at an illegal recycling dump in Guiyu, representatives of the Chinese recyclers attempted without success to confiscate the footage from the 60 Minutes TV crew.
* 10 most polluted countries in the world
Latest industrial pollution to batter China environment: BEIJING, Hundreds of thousands of dead fish were left floating in a Chinese river after a chemical discharge, officials said Wednesday, the latest industrial accident to pollute the country’s battered environment.
About 100,000 kilograms of fish were cleared from 40 kilometres of the Fu river in Wuhan, the capital of the central province of Hubei, the official Xinhua news agency said, citing “local government investigations”.
I was overwhelmed thinking about the dire state of the environment in China in every respect then I was thinking wait a minute Fukushima's nuclear fall out has greatly affected Russia, Japan, and the entire world not to speak of Chernobyl.
Russia has made many environmental disaster area's in many former USSR countries. Much of South America is a mess, the United States has it's great amount of guilt and is now concentrating and fracking our frigging country to pieces for gas and oil.
Canada is doing its share with its grotesque oil sands in Alberta that they want to pipe through our heartland and its aquifers and wildlife migratory areas. I saw countries in South America where it was impossible to eat the food grown as it is in areas of China. These areas are all over the world.
We don't even want to get into the ocean with its numerous growing dead spots and continent size garbage swirls. Remember the pirate problem down around Somalia? We created them. At one time we had permission from tribal elders to dump all our nuclear and electronic waste in what was there fishing area and we killed everything forcing them into piracy. What we don't know about our pirates. We do this all over the world!
China was the focus at the outset but every continent every country is doing its share to destroy the only planet, the only place we have to live and the powers to be could care less that they are destroying it for their gain. I am disgusted!

For years because of Bush's fascist agenda many of us said this is not a Democracy. A Democracy only in name to facilitate a hidden agenda. Now we hear from Republicans that this is no longer a Democracy because of Obama and the socialist agenda he inherited from Bush. Anyway you look at it this is not a Democracy!
Is it supposed to be a Democracy just because they make you leave your pen once every couple of years to go out and vote for those with the money to buy their position to force the agenda that keeps those corporations in control that really run this country? Is it Democracy that allows the top 1% to own more than the bottom 95% combined?
Would a Democracy allow their fellow citizens to go without the basic needs of any human being let alone right here in the USA, Food Shelter and clothing? Homes are still being foreclosed at a rate of 1 every 7.5 seconds. This is a Democracy in action? Is the health insurance Industry spending 1.5 million dollars a day to control Congress and kill health care reform so they can keep control over you Democracy in action?
No! It is capitalism run amok, Capitalism is controlling our Democracy. This is not a Democracy. Democracy is a system of government in which either the actual governing is carried out by the people governed or the power to do so is granted by them. There are two principles that any definition of democracy includes, equality and freedom. Would not equality dictate that the top 1% take care of those who are in trouble? Or is it because Capitalism rules Democracy that they have the "freedom" to ignore Equality and Democracy? Democracy
Capitalism as a system developed incrementally from the 16th century in Europe. Capitalism typically refers to an economic and social system in which the means of production are privately controlled. Controlling it is is a matter of politics and policy. Capitalism
Politics and Democracy are supposed to be controlling Capitalism. Capitalism is not supposed to be controlling Democracy! Capitalism has run amok and as you know is controlling Democracy. Our Government just bailed out Capitalism and there was nothing Democratic about it. Capitalism owns our Democracy and our Government.We the people have been left to our own demise. It is time to control Capitalism with Democracy so for once we are all equal!

As we watch world events every day Syria has taken center stage in our fight for the future and attempt at world dominance as we destroy the planet. I have been in a funk watching the Syrian people being sacrificed for nothing. This is a waste and is way to old. This is way beyond the trivial battles being waged by the common man. When the powers to be are ready the sky is going to fall but on who?
The day I started high school and all my world endeavors I saw what was happening and my friends thought I was crazy in 1970. It can no longer be denied!Not to get too involved now but after what has happened since Bush and our past as a warring depleting destructive country and all the crap happening right now I came to the conclusion that man is not the planets savior but his role is to bring the whole life cycle full swing and he is. A Time Line of Life's Cycles and Where We Are in Them and
Life's cycles, the final stages
Under Bush it was so hard to watch and it keeps getting worse. We are at a point in man and the planets life cycle called the nurturing stage "the end" if we do not take the right steps and we refuse to accept it.
Instead we just had the Gulf of Mexico now Japan and though the time where war is sustainable is over we continue to push for more and make this planet so that no one can live on it.
We hear there are millions of universes and since we are destroying ours you have to think someone knows of another planet for us somewhere. We can't be this stupid or so you have to hope.
Did you ever read China's nasty surprise for us known as "assassins mace" or read about our "HAARP" You can Google it or I have the links having used them numerous times but not good.Here it all is from a discussion we had 3 years ago now
If we have the space war no one supposedly wants but we are prepared for we are all stuck here. HAARP has been in progress for a century, do you remember when a couple years back the entire middle east went dead except for the US and Iraq? That was no accident.
Remember when a Russian and US satellite bumped into each other over Russia? That was no accident either. Read Assassins mace,it is in the link above, not good!
Also remember around 2 years ago when China took down her own satellite to see if they can? Well Russia, China, and the US can and much worse. Just the other day a tiny piece of that junk had us afraid the space station was going to be hit and they were preparing for it.
In a nut shell if they have a space war and destroy each others satellites we are all stuck on mother earth that they are destroying.
So much is made of oil and weapons but whoever owns space owns the future. Take out the satellites and aircraft carriers are dead in the water like the rest of the navy and entire modern military. "the best laid plans of men and mice" All we can do is shake our heads and go for the ride because we do not matter!
As we follow the path of the Roman Empire it will all get worse as it is and those who can pilfer the ship as they are before it sinks as they are every day and we can just watch. What a future huh? AAARRRGGGHHH!
