U.S. Says Water Supply At Risk From Global Warming

Less than a year after the U.S. government warned about global warming’s threat to the world’s food supply, a separate taxpayer-funded study reveals that water is also at risk from the ills of climate change.
That means the government has so far, in a variety of separate assessments, determined that global warming will make food dangerous, cause mental illness, cancer and threaten national security. In fact, under the Obama Administration, a consortium of scientists from several government agencies—including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the State Department and National Institute of Environmental Health Science—have confirmed that global warming is one of the “most visible environmental concerns of the 21st century.”
The food report came from a group of esteemed scientists from several public universities that determined global warming will provoke increased levels of food contamination from chemicals and “fungal pathogens” as well as diseases like cholera and shellfish poisoning. This will lead to the malnourishment of millions worldwide and most likely civil unrest, according to that particular batch of academics.
This week’s global warming alert du jour comes from another group of academics who say parts of Arizona and Mexico form the “front line of ongoing climate change.” That means “water vulnerability” caused by “climate variability and change.” That’s because global warming will cause severe precipitation decreases and temperature increases. Combined with vulnerability from urbanization, industrialization and agriculture intensification this will threaten the water supply.
A team of bilingual and “binational” researchers from the University of Arizona and the Colegio de Sonora in Hermosillo, Sonora, Mexico reached this conclusion after researching the matter for three years. U.S. taxpayers funded the study via a grant from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Researchers worked closely with water managers, disaster relief planners and other decision-makers in Arizona and Sonora to study the vulnerability of the region’s water resources to climate variability and change.
This sort of alarmist report involving global warming has become par for the course under the Obama Administration. In one of its latest assessments, the government determined that global warming is much worse than previously imagined because the ocean actually masks the true rate of damage for periods as long as a decade.
According to this logic, revealed last fall by the National Science Foundation (NSF), the crisis is way more severe than what it appears. That’s because the sea is storing the heat that damages the earth, making it appear as if there is a sort of hiatus in global warming when there really isn’t. When this ocean-stored heat will show its evil face will probably be the subject of the next government-funded study.
