Living in the US with a 7-11 or a Dunkin’ Donuts on every street corner, and clean water just a tap away — it’s hard to believe that anyone could ever be fighting and even killing each other over food or water. But, according to the well-respected National Geographic, billions — that’s billions with a “B,” could be facing a severe lack of food and clean water over the next few decades.
As bright and rosy as many would like to believe our future is — the truth is that our planet, and everything that lives on it, is rapidly deteriorating.
Do not get me wrong, I am not jumping on the Greta Thunberg, lame-stream media “global warming” Chicken Little train. What I and even the National Geographic is referring to, is the toxic waste dump we are turning this planet into every day.
We are systematically poisoning our planet. Thousands upon thousands of species are going extinct, and we are literally running out of all of our most important natural resources. There isn’t going to be enough of anything in the not too distant future. According to National Geo, up to five billion people could soon be facing “shortages of food and clean water.” In a recent paper published in the magazine, Rebecca Chaplin-Kramer, a landscape ecologist at Stanford University, said, “As many as five billion people, particularly in Africa and South Asia, are likely to face shortages of food and clean water in the coming decades as nature declines. Hundreds of millions more could be vulnerable to increased risks of severe coastal storms, according to the first-ever model examining how nature and humans can survive together.”
While CNN and Fox News square off on who is right or wrong on impeachment, the clock is ticking on far graver concerns. This kind of sh*t is going to hit the fan, no matter who sits in the Oval Office in 2020, or beyond.
Our groundwater is contaminated, topsoil needed to grow food is eroding at an alarming rate. Insect species, many of which we rely on as pollinators are being wiped out across the globe.
As Michael Snyder writes over at InfoWars, “Despite all of our advanced technology, we can’t seem to do much of anything to stop the death and decay that we see all over the globe.”
Even the human race is steadily deteriorating. Scientists tell us that humans are now smaller, shorter and weaker than our ancestors were thousands of years ago. Literally, our planet and everything in it is falling apart. Here in the western world, thanks to our strong economy and advanced technologies, it does not seem that death is knocking at our door.
But, the Reaper is out there, and he is smiling.
