Forget about oil. Here comes the water wars.

Date published: Friday 8th of April 2016

Oil. We depend on it to live our ordinary day to day lives. Our hospitals depend on it. Our transport systems depend on it. Our entire way of life is built around oil. However, oil is scarce. We're running out. Soon there won't be enough oil to meet the huge demand. It's no surprise then that oil is expensive. Very expensive. Oil is so expensive that wars have been fought over oil. One thing we can be sure of is that many more wars will be fought over oil. When we eventually run out of oil, the effects on the human race could be catastrophic.

Okay. Now, go back and read that paragraph again. However, this time I want you to replace the word 'oil' with 'fresh water'. Now, let's multiply the general heaviness factor by about 400. Folks, that's where we're heading.

The Ogallala Aquifer supplies fresh water for about one-third of America's crops. It will not last another fifty years at the rate at which it is being drained, and it'll take six thousand years to fill back up again. On January this year, Bloomberg TV reporter David Ingles reported that bottled water is now more expensive than oil. The average person in California uses up 1500 gallons of water every day.

We are heading for a disaster and nobody from the mainstream media is talking about this.

However, the good news is - there's an easy solution. It's a solution which is entirely pain-free. It's a solution that can solve the problem overnight. It's a solution that is inexpensive, elegant and environmentally friendly.

Can you guess what the solution is?

Here's what the solution is NOT:

It's NOT to drive a smaller car (vehicle manufacturers have figured out how to build huge cars which are as economical as smaller ones).

It's NOT to take more trips to the recycling center. That's not even going to make a dent!

It's NOT to take fewer baths and showers. That wouldn't make a dent either.

Oh, by the way - right now 1.1 BILLION people are suffering - with many dying - due to a lack of fresh water. So, let's not even talk in terms of "it we do X then we can prevent Y from happening." The problems are already here and real. We are running out of fresh water!

The solution. Stop eating meat.

It's as simple as that. Just stop eating meat and then we can crack open the champagne and declare the problem solved.

The fact of the matter is, most of the fresh water that is being drained is not being used for showers and baths. It's not all being used up by greedy rich people. It's not even running out because we're drinking it.

THE BIGGEST DRAIN UPON THE PLANET EARTH'S FRESH WATER SUPPLIES IS CATTLE.

Read that sentence again because you've just been exposed to one of the greatest conspiracies out there.

Do you know that to produce just one (third pound) burger requires 660 gallons of water? However, an orange requires just eleven gallons of water (ref: http://www.latimes.com/food/dailydish/la-dd-gallons-of-water-to-make-a-burger-20140124-story.html).

If you adopt a diet which is based more on fruit and vegetables then not only will you be working miracles on your own health and energy levels - but you'll also be helping to save the planet as well. And if saving the planet is a tired old cliche for you then think about all of the wars that can be prevented is we, as a species, commit to consuming less fresh water.

It's easier than you think and for more information I encourage you to watch the documentary Cowspiracy.

Educate yourself. Find out the truth and then tell your friends and family. Your words have power!

May the Force be with us all.
