The Ripple Effect: Water Shortages Likely In Most Populated Cities

Tess Pennington

The realization that our water is in fact a finite resource has become all the more clear over the last year where parts of the country have experienced the worst droughts in a century. The changes in global weather patterns and a rapidly growing population have also substantially affected the water supply.
In 2010, an article was written that examined the risk of water shortages across the country. The writers of the article looked at an October, 2010 report on water risk by environmental research and sustainability group, Ceres. They also considered a comprehensive July, 2010 report from the National Resources Defense Council which mapped areas at high risk of water shortage conflict. However, according to Natural News, these cities should not be the only ones concerned about future water shortages. According to U.S. government estimates, at least 36 states are expected to face water shortages within the next five years.

Having knowledge before hand on how to appropriately treat water and store it will ensure that your family has the most basic and most important survival item ready in case a water shortage ensues. As a collective whole, we must actively begin taking the steps to physically detach ourselves from depending on the system. Knowledge and understanding on how to effectively treat and store water will ensure that your family has the most important preparedness item ready for use.


  1. Water shortages??? think again..
    how about food shortages coming to a town near you, just to to get us started.
    The elite will make sure of it that there will still be plenty of sugary, fattening, cancer causing drinks to quench ones thirst.

  2. American citizens need to put a lien on Bush's waterworks in Paraguay to help pay for the phony oil wars. It was an illegal war and he should pay.


Everyone is encouraged to participate with civilized comments.
