Water Crisis! The World Is Rapidly Running Out Of Water

There are many huge problems that our world is facing today, but one massive problem is getting very, very little attention.

The world is rapidly running out of clean fresh water.

The extent of the problem facing all of us cannot be understated.....

Did you realize that every eight seconds a child dies from drinking dirty water?

Did you realize that a new desert the size of Rhode Island is created in China because of drought every single year?

Did you realize that in the developing world, 90% of wastewater is discharged completely untreated into local rivers?

Did you realize that by 2050, 1.7 billion people will live in "dire water poverty" and will be forced to relocate?

Did you realize that half of the world's hospital beds are occupied by people who have contracted waterborne diseases?

Did you realize that the World Health Organization says contaminated water is the cause of 80% of all sickness and disease worldwide?

Did you realize that newborns in the global north consume 40 to 70 times more water than in the global south?

Did you realize that in China, 80% of the major rivers are so polluted they don't support aquatic life at all?

Did you realize that the women of South Africa collectively walk the equivalent distance to the moon and back 16 times a day for water?

During these end times it will be imperative that you have a reliable source of clean water for you and your family.

And the water crisis is getting worse every single day. If this problem is not addressed soon we will be facing a worldwide tragedy of an unimaginable magnitude.
