    Hmmmmm, who ever hasn't been on top of water stocks is way behind. One ETF that follows this sector is PHO. They continue to say water is the new oil. Well if thats the case buy PHO, trading around 18.50.

    We need more, we have less...

    The only difference is although water is replenishable, but it is also irreplacable....
     
  4. What Pekelo just described is called "Peak Water Theory".
     
  5. I can't predict what the markets will do in 100 years but I can guarantee you that water will be worth more than gold by 2100.

    Thought for WORLD WATER DAY 8th JUNE 2006

    A good Friend of mine, Nalini in India, brought to my attention the following LETTER WRITTEN IN THE YEAR 2070.

    All words needs to spread globally and be backed up with more and more practical support so if you can help in any way let me know.

    Let's get together fast to make sure this letter is NEVER written :


    LETTER WRITTEN IN THE YEAR 2070

    {Article published in the magazine "Crónicas de los Tiempos“, in April 2002.}

    This is the year 2070
    I have just turned 50,
    but I look and feel 85.
    I suffer from serious kidney problems, because I do not drink enough water.
    I'm afraid I do not have much time left to live.
    I am one of the oldest people in this society.
    I remember when I was a child of 5.
    Everything was very different.
    There were lots of trees in the parks, houses with beautiful gardens,
    and I could enjoy having a shower for half an hour.
    Nowadays we use towels with mineral oil to clean our skin.

    Before, women had beautiful hair.

    Now, we have to shave our heads to keep them clean without the use of water.

    Then, my father washed his car with water
    coming out of a hosepipe.
    Now, my son does not believe that water could be wasted that way.

    I remember there were
    SAVE WATER
    warnings on outdoor posters, radio
    and TV, but nobody paid attention.
    We thought that water was to last forever.
    Now, all the rivers, lakes,
    dams and underground water beds
    are either dry or contaminated.

    Industry came to a standstill, unemployment is sky high.
    Desalination plants are the main source of employment
    and workers receive part of their salary in drinkable water.


    Assaults on the streets for a can of water are very common.

    Before, it was recommended an adult drinks 8 glasses a day.
    Nowadays, I am only allowed half a glass.

    We now have to wear disposable clothing,
    and this increases the amount of litter.
    We are using septic tanks, because the sewerage system does not work for lack of water.
    All the people look horrible: wrinkled due to dehydration,full of sores caused by ultra violet radiation,as the ozone layer is almost gone.

    Skin cancer, gastrointestinal infections and of the urinary tracts are the main causes of death.
    Due to the excessive drying of the skin young people of 20 look like 40.
    Scientists have no solution to the problem.
    Water cannot be produced, oxygen is not sufficient due to the lack of trees and vegetation, and the intellectual capacity of the younger generations is severely impaired.
    The morphology of spermatozoa in many men has changed.
    As a consequence, babies are born with deficiencies, mutations and physical deformities.

    The average life expectancy is 35 years.
    Water became a very coveted treasure.

    Any green zones crossed by rivers are guarded by armed soldiers.
    Where I live, there are no trees, because it seldom rains. If it does, it is acid rain.
    We were warned to look after the environment, but nobody cared.
    I tell my son about the green fields,
    the beautiful flowers, the rain, how we swam and fish in the rivers and dams, drinking all the water we could, and how healthy people were.
    He asks:
    Daddy! Why there is no water?
    Was I guilty ?
    My generation destroyed the environment. We did not heed the warning signs.
    Now our children
    pay a very high price!
    Soon, I think,
    life on earth will not be possible,
    as the destruction of nature has reached an irreversible stage.
    How I would like to go back and make mankind understand…

    ..that we still had time to save our Planet Earth.
     

  6. OMFG, I was saying that for last two years. LOL.

    Also I did, my english final on water scarcity. To please, my hippie teacher.

    Cheers.

    cant they just make water by fusing hydrogen and oxygen together??

    :confused:

    if we can go to the moon and study genes we could sure be able to make water if hydrogen and oxygen are abundant enough. I know for a fact that hydrogen is the most abundant element on earth.

    am i missing something :confused:
