Prophets of Doom: Water Shortage Greatest Threat

The History Channel, recently presented “Prophets of Doom,” highlighting five scholars who discussed possible sources of a coming Apocalypse: 1) Shrinking oil and natural gas supplies upon which growing world populations depend;  2) Insolvent global financial systems;  3) Nuclear weapons falling into the hands of terrorists; 4) Artificial Intelligent Robots advanced enough to enslave human beings;  and 5) The shrinking supply of fresh water.  The experts include:  Michael Ruppert, Nathan Hagens, John Cronin, James Howard Kunstler, Professor Hugo De Garis and Robert Gleason.  (The program is available for on-line downloading.)

 The problem, of course, is that all of these warnings could converge on the earth at one time.  But the experts agreed that the coming shortage of fresh water around the world threatens the element most essential for human life.  Well-published scholar, John Cronin is both Director and Chief Executive Officer of the Beacon Institute for Rivers and Estuaries and the Senior Fellow for Environmental Affairs at the Pace Academy for Applied Environmental Studies at Pace University.   Cronin stresses three areas in his report as one of the Prophets of Doom:  Not only is fresh water running low, its quality is getting worse,  and as shortages increase, diseases from bad waters will also increase.

 Co-author of The Riverkeepers with Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., Cronin insists that this problem can be solved:  “One billion people are without safe water. We have the know-how and compassion to correct that tragedy, and harmonize forever the human and natural worlds. This is the greatest challenge of the 21st century.”  Cronin has a website,, which publishes “The Blue Times: News From a Blue Planet.”  It includes links to articles on:  declining water supplies; raw sewage and radioactive debris in drinking water; industrial dumping of millions of pounds of toxic waste into these waters; and failures of national and local government agencies to warn citizens of these poisons or to cleanse the water.

 This website writes often about the slow death of fresh water around the world.  And these reports from the History Channel’s Prophets of Doom concur with these findings.  This blog will soon discuss the Prophets of Doom other earth-ending possibilities.  For now, it is essential that readers understand Bible prophecies that warn what the dearth of water foreshadows about end times.  The abundance of water symbolizes divine life:  “He that believeth on Me, as the Scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water” (John 7: 38).  And the dearth of water symbolizes economic collapse,  judgment and eternal death: “Some also there were that said, We have mortgaged our lands, vineyards, and houses, that we might buy corn, because of the dearth” (Nehemiah 5: 3); “We have drunken our water for money . . .” (Lamentations 5: 4a).
