Investors warm to water as shortages mount
LONDON, March 19 (Reuters) — As liquidity is drained from credit and money markets and pours into oil and gold, another asset class that could offer long-term returns to the discerning investor is water. Water shortages are on the rise — stemming from soaring demand, growing populations, rising living standards and changing diets. A lack of supply is compounded by pollution and climate change.
Australia reports record drought, US water sources in the southeast are drying up, pesticides and chemical spraying pollute ground water making it undrinkable, and in China, the Gobi desert advances two miles per year. We are seeing the Book of Revelation playing out before our very eyes. Food shortages mean spikes in prices and empty shelves — but people can survive on fewer calories. No matter how you slice it, humans must have water to live. Maybe this is why Sun Myung Moon and the Bush family have secured thousands of acres in Paraguay, just over the world’s largest fresh water aquifer.
Stock up on water now — before the price goes up much more (it’s already gone up by half since last year). Buy a water filtration system. Lay in cases of canned foods that don’t require hydration — save your water for drinking.
Most of all — seek the Lord. If you don’t know Christ as Savior, there is no better time than now. The horses are riding. Are you ready? — PID
