The Groundwater Footprint: Over-Population Threatens Water Resources

A study published by McGill University in Montreal and Utrecht University in the Netherlands, analyzed data from global ground water use against computer generated models of underwater aquifers and concluded that the âgroundwater footprintâ of reliable resources above ground is 3.5 times larger than the known aquifers.
UNESCOâs Intergovernmental Council of the International Hydrological Program (HIP)Â estimatesÂ that there is 366 million, trillion gallon of water on Earth.
The IPCC documentÂ HS 15332Â Climate Change Impacts: Securitization of Water, Food, Soil, Health, Energy and Migration explains how the UN plans to secure resources to use at their disposal. Through the International Monetary Fund (IMF) under-developed countries are forced to sell their resources to the global Elite as âfull cost recoveryâ to the global central bankers. Once those resources are under the complete control of the IMF they become assets to be reallocated back to the enslaved nations for a price.
This scheme makes water sources under central privatization cost more and become less accessible to those who desperately need it. Water prices rise while the quality of it diminishes. This forces natives in places like South Africa and India to collect water from polluted streams and rivers, which compromises their health. The cycle in complete when those who had their water stolen from them through coercion die from contaminated water that they were forced to use.
With over-population factored into the algorithms, underground water reserves and their native ecosystems are under the growing threat of human necessity.
Geophysicists at the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact ResearchÂ statesÂ that only 282 billion people could be âpacked onto the planetâ. With the current number at nearly 9 billion, alarmists are pointing out that water will become a highly sought after commodity.
As exampled in South-east Asia, because of the 1.7 billion people using water reserves, the âsoberingâ fact concluded is that people are over-using groundwater in regions like Asia and North America.
With proper management, Tom Gleeson, lead researcher from McGill University, believes that underground water sources that make up 99% of the worldâs fresh and unfrozen water will become crucial to the growing human population.
The UN Environmental Program (UNEP) in aÂ UN-Water Survey of 130 Countries Status ReportÂ has forced reformation through international water laws that apply pressure under the guise of âexpanding populations, urbanization and climate changeâ. While clean drinking water for humans is controlled, improvements designed to ensure freshwater reserves for the ecosystem are first and foremost.
Management and use of water under the international agreement known as Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) was back at the 1992 UN Conference on Sustainable Development. This is a part of the Agenda 21 plan. Cooperation of the UNEP and the UN-Water, an inter-agency mechanism to control freshwater resources, relates UN policies to governments on how to allocate their assets.
In Asia and North America, where researchers conclude that water resources are being allocated wastefully, agriculture is being attacked because of its use of water for irrigation. Gleeson says: âThe relatively few aquifers that are being heavily exploited are unfortunately critical to agriculture in a number of different countries. So even though the number is relatively small, these are critical resources that need better management.â
Gleeson claims that agricultureâs effect on âthe supply of available waterâ has not had a quantifying measure until his study to show âthe impact of such agricultural groundwater use in any consistent, global way.â
By mandating international restriction on water extraction combined with the promotion of meat-less diets, Gleeson asserts that water resources could be shared more sustainably.
The British Geological Survey and the University College London haveÂ surveyedÂ African underground aquifers and concluded that there are more than 100 times the amount of water found underground than on the surface of the continent.
Andrew Mitchell, the United Kingdomâs Secretary of State for International Development is delighted by this find. âThis is an important discovery. This research, which the British Government has funded, could have a profound effect on some of the worldâs poorest people.â
This discovery could become the largest attempt at water privatization. Water resources worldwide have succumbed to privatization, turning lifeâs most essential molecule into a global commodity.
In North Africa, uncontrolled plans to extract underground water resources have been deemed unsustainable by the UN.
In disbursement of water resources, while trying toÂ mitigate wasteÂ , the use of sewage effluent and other wastewater could preserve wildlife, rivers and ecosystems that are being destroyed by human necessity according to eco-fascists in a new study.
Stanley Grant, lead author of the study and a UC Irvine civil & environmental engineering professor, states: âThis is the only path forward to provide water for humans as well as for ecosystems. We need to focus on improving the productivity and value of existing supplies, which basically means getting more out of a glass of water.â
Water shortages could beÂ rescindedÂ by creating drinking water from wastewater while reducing the total waste from compromised piping in private-owned homes. How water is priced and managed must be reworked to make the most of âscare freshwater resourcesâ say the researchers.
TheÂ securitization of waterÂ is a conflict of control over society and the right to life. It is a non-negotiable aspect of life on Earth. The false flag threat of water pollution (which is being committed by the global Elite through multi-national corporations) is a cover story for the march toward complete control over all basic necessities required to live.
Pursuit of water security means whoever has the water, choses who lives â and who dies. With the emergence of water regimes, land grabs where known aquifers reside underground make sense.Â WorkshopsÂ designed to recruit more alarmists are popping up all over the academic world as the global Elite seek to convince as many scholars as possible that the UN would be the best and only chance at fair allocation of our water resources.
Simply put, the securitization of water on a global scale (if the Elite get their way) will be run by the UN only. Their target recommendations will then be directed to individual governments to be made into laws. The citizens of those nations will have no choice but to follow the laws of their countries; if they are to get their ration of life-giving water.
