Saudi Arabia to run out of groundwater in 13 years ... The collapse of food producing agriculture won't be far behind

Ground water

(NaturalNews) Mohammed Al-Ghamdi, a water expert and faculty member of Saudi Arabia's King Faisal University, has announced the shocking news that the country's groundwater will run out in 13 years.(1)

"Official estimates have been disclosed showing an acute drop in water levels in agricultural areas," he says, "and that indicates the seriousness of the situation." As such, he's worried about what looks like an inevitable threat to key crops, including fruits and wheat. Because these crops require large quantities of water, and Saudi Arabia relies on groundwater for 98 percent of its total water sources (the remaining water comes from desalination plants), it's understandable that the situation will likely produce dire consequences.(1)

As such, Al-Ghamdi is urging groundwater renewal efforts, while Prince Faisal bin Bandar, governor of Riyadh, is strongly advising water conservation efforts.(1)

Sound familiar?

Serious water problems threaten resources, health: Are you taking the steps to stay safe?

The United States has certainly grappled with its fair share of water issues, from toxic water problems linked to fracking, lead-toxicity issues, and water shortages brought about by severe droughts. One only has to be reminded of Flint, Michigan, residents who were knowingly being provided with lead-laden water, all while it was hidden by the area's evil governor.

Speaking of such contamination, you can see how your area measures up, thanks to the Health Ranger's efforts to assess water samples throughout the country – at no cost to you. Read here to learn more about how he's spearheading the initiative to ensure Flint-like horrors don't happen where you live, and to find out how you can participate.(2,3)

Of course, California is another place that's been stricken with water problems, as droughts have drastically altered everything from crops to people's living circumstances.(4)

Ladies and gentlemen, this all points in one very critical direction: it won't be long before all of this becomes one giant mess, rendering the total collapse of food-producing agriculture. Sure, 13 years – in the case of what Saudi Arabian experts are saying – might seem quite far off, but we all know that time is a funny thing. Between that and all of the other water problems the world is facing, it may be even less time than that before we're left scrambling for food, shower water and all the other conveniences the resource offers.

Therefore, the time to prepare is now.

Don't be left out when the food runs out

Perhaps the wisest decision you can make is to purchase a Mini-Farm Grow Box, a creative and effective invention by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger. He explains it as "... a non-electric, open-source food production system that can be easily constructed using common tools and parts." Furthermore, the necessary parts won't require endless trips to a home supply store; in many instances, the likes of paper clips and pencil erasers – which you probably already have around your home – will work perfectly.(5)

Right from the safety and convenience of your own home, you can grow fruits, herbs and vegetables (including root vegetables) galore, all without the worry of harmful chemicals and ingredients. When the water runs out, you'll have the peace of mind that you can continue feeding your family nutritious foods.

Of course, it's also important to practice your own water conservation efforts. Why wait until your city or town mandates them to scale back on your own water use?

Conserve water NOW, not just when it's mandated

One good example of this includes what water efficiency organizations, such as Home Water Works, suggest: taking very short showers, also referred to as "navy showers." In this instance, it's recommended that people engage in a three-part process. First, you should turn on the water for the sole purpose of wetting your hair and body. The water is then shut off. While the water remains off, you lather up and cleanse yourself. Step three is simply about turning the water back on to rinse off. All told, this should be a five minute process, undoubtedly considerably less that what most people spend taking a shower.(6)

Other water-conservation efforts include installing water-efficient washing machines, turning to rainwater collection systems, and replacing outdoor turfgrass with landscaping that doesn't require large amounts of water to thrive.(7)

Plan now for what will very likely be a terrible food collapse, brought about by diminishing water quality and quantity issues, by implementing the ideas listed above as soon as possible.
