First Response

“We assess that a water-related state-on-state conflict is unlikely during the next 10 years….However, we judge that as water shortages become more acute beyond the next 10 years, water in shared basins will increasingly be used as leverage; the use of water as a weapon or to further terrorist objectives also will become more likely beyond 10 years.”  (The U.S. Department of Central Intelligence,  from Key Judgements)

Our water sources are under pressure. By mid-century, there will be an additional 3 billion people. Most will be born into countries already experiencing water shortages.

  • 1 in 5 people do not have access to safe drinking water
  • According to the United Nations, a child dies from a water related disease every 15 seconds
  • It has been said we are going to run out of water before we run out of oil

“The front page news in September 2009 that drinking water standards in many parts of the United States have not been adequately monitored or enforced, was only new to those who haven’t been paying attention”- Peter H. Gleick, “Bottled & Sold”

This is a problem that must be addressed with new technologies.

Our Bottom Line: During the next 10 years, many countries important to the United States will experience water  problems—shortages, poor water quality, or floods—that will risk instability  and state failure, increase regional tensions, and distract them from working   with the United States on important US policy objectives. Between now and 2040, fresh water availability will not keep up with demand absent more effective management of water resources. Water problems will hinder the ability of key countries to produce food and generate energy, posing a risk to global food markets and hobbling economic growth. As a result of   demographic and economic development pressures, North Africa, the Middle East, and South Asia will face major challenges coping with water problems.  FromThe Report on Global Water Security‘, The U.S. Department of Central Intelligence, as requested by the Secretary of State, Hillary Rodham Clinton, Feb 2012.

According to the United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), about 1 billion of the estimated 6.6 billion people in the world lack access to sustained and consistently potable water. That number is increasing dramatically every day.

The blame for much of this world-wide shortage stems from the potentially lethal combination of war, drought, lack of cooperation between governments, conflict over water rights and ownership of water supplies, and the general lack of funds and organizations to create and/or to sustain water-gathering, treatment and transport capabilities. In addition, the growing water demand caused by population growth and continued rising consumption, matched with the decreasing supply of this non-renewable resource because of industrial use, urban expansion and other manmade devices, is making water supply an issue of national security and a matter over which people fight wars.

It is time for those with a clear view of the looming water crises to begin preparation to provide secondary, if not primary, sources for safe, pure and sustainable water. Infinite Water, Inc. is ready to provide the world with fresh tasting , safe, endless water through its proven technology. The future availability of fresh water is in question. However, ‘personally managed water sytems’ will assure the quality of life that Americans deserve.  Once you have an AWG from Infinite Water, ‘variable water production programming’ will be controlled by you and not by outside forces.
