More People, Less Water; Hotter Global Warming, No Water, Part 1

 While no one was looking, and without knowledgeable national or regional planning, foresight or attention, immigrant arrivals have given the United States the fourth fastest growing population in the world.  No one admits it in national media, but now, like China and India, this country has a population of over 300 million people.  But apparently the politicians who arranged the welcoming committee, did not ask an urgent question:  “Where will the water come from to support even present populations, much less newcomers?” While they encouraged this rapid growth, did these same political and corporate leaders not realize the great reduction in rainfall in the last ten years?  Did they not recognize that the same corporate practices producing Global Warming, with its constantly rising temperatures, would also affect available water supplies for everyone? 

 Kathleen Parker in her November 2010 report for the Center for Immigration Studies, informs her readers: “The Southwest is the fastest growing region in the United States, the world’s fourth-fastest-growing nation.”  The problem, she concludes, the newcomers are flocking to cities––i.e. Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Phoenix, etc.  And most of these cities––which depend upon few natural  sources for water, such as the Colorado River, and which have temperatures in the hundreds this summer––do not have sustainable water supplies.  And researchers indicate that these weather patterns will get far worse before they get better.

 In his article “Mega-drought Threat to U.S. Southwest,” Quirin Schiermeier explains that while the Dust Bowl drought in the 1930s only lasted seven years, scientific research indicates that “mega-droughts” were recurring in that region thousands of years ago, but they were always followed by cooling off periods.  However, none of those times of droughts were caused by man-made Global Warming.  Thus he concludes:  “This time around, rising greenhouse-gas concentrations driven by human activity will very likely override any natural cooling trend.”  Without rain and cooler weather, water sources continue drying up.

 Even the New York Times which seems to avoid “news” discussions of Global Warming, admit that weather anomalies in 2011 have been extraordinary disastrous.  In his “opinion” editorial,  “Drought:  A Creeping Disaster,” Alex Prud’Homme writes:  “Floods, tornadoes, earthquakes, tsunamis and other extreme weather have left a trail of destruction during the first half of 2011. But this could be just the start to a remarkable year of bad weather. Next up: drought.”  Scientists warn that the results of other disasters can be easily measured, but not drought.  It creeps upon its victims like a python; and its strangle holds take years of life away.

 Well do Bible prophecies insist, “Where there is no vision, the people perish: . .  .” (Proverbs 29: 18).  Unless the leaders of this nation quickly develop wisdom and vision from God, and for God, this great nation, indeed could perish!
