Just when you didn't need one more thing to be concerned I bring forth unto you another civilization-stunning problem that threatens our modern living and is by it's very nature the issue is a political pariah. The issue is about water, and why we need to educate ourselves on how we use this valuable resource and realize just how scarce fresh water is.

 

'Water, water everywhere

 

Nor any drop to drink.'

 

My guest was Robert Glennon, professor at the University of Anizona and author of the book Unquenchable: America's Water Crisis and What To Do About It. In this interview we discuss the amount of freshwater available vs. the amount of water on earth and how the hydrologic cycle has supplied our earth with freshwater since... well... the beginning of the hydrologic cycle.Since that time, we have had the same amount of freshwater as the dinosaurs but we use freshwater in many different ways that are important to our modern living. Some of which are destroying the freshwaters ability to used for human consumption. It doesn't take more than a passing glance at the statistics of water to be concerned. Robert Glennon does more than just glance at the stats and delves into some serious issues that we face when it comes to freshwater use and it's longer term threat. Robert goes as far as to say that we face a Crisis.

Nice that you're going to turn Mersina in a bilingual!As you polbabry know, my sons are bilingual.In England, they didn't actually speak Dutch back to me, but I spoke Dutch to them most of the time, that way, they at least knew the language passively. And so they picked it up really fast when we moved to the Netherlands.

"Volcanic forcing. There is increasing evidence (3, 7–10) that pulses of volcanism significantly contributed to decadal-scale climate variability in the Little Ice Age."

I think the whole argument for or against global warming is similar to arguing about if North Korea or Iran should be allowed to have nuclear weapons. The non-wimps where willing to do something to stop this from happening, but the liberals are wimps at heart and afraid to fight so they let North Korea get nuclear weapons. India has said straight up that it does not care about global warming, it will burn all the CO2 it can and deal with a 1 degree temperature change in order to keep its people from starving. Now personally if I believed in global warming and the population center of the world said this, then I would nuke them. But the liberals instead will completely ignore the 1.1 billion person elephant in the room and instead focus on passing legislation in the 300 million person United States which will completely crash its economy and send the jobs to india where they don't give a F, and have no global warming laws.

@LUKE, you are talking nonsense. Sulfur dioxide has nothing to do with this. We are talking about CO2. The United States Geological Survey has calculated that human emissions of CO2 are about 130 times larger than volcanic emissions. You simply are one of the victims of the disinformation campaign. Start thinking for yourself!

EXAMPLE: all of the cars, homes and factories in the United States produce about 15 million tons of sulfur dioxide in one year. When Mt. Pinatubo in the Phillipines erupted a few years ago, it spewed about 30 million tons into the atmosphere with no long-term affects. And we’ve had numerous volcano eruptions since then.

The laughable thing about Glennon and his ilk is that Global Warming, which is literally drying up parts of the USA, is barely given a mention, not because Glennon doesn't believe it's a major factor, but because he knows his Neanderthal American readership are brainwashed into thinking anthropogenic global warming is a scam by shadowy corporate and right wing interests. He had to weigh up sales vs honesty, and guess what won?
