Eminent Scientists Warn Earth Is Drying Up – Martian Style Irrigation Systems Needed

In 1923, many eminent scientists warned that the earth is drying up, and that we would have to build an ingenious global irrigation system, like our neighbors on Mars did centuries ago.

    Wow. This nut make James Hansen appear reasonable. That’s quite a task.

    And speaking of the solar system, as far as sunspots, I’ve noticed that the level of spots has been real low for a week or more, now at 22 spots: http://spaceweather.com/

    Maybe in a couple of weeks, you never know, it might get down to zero spots again. And we are still not too far off of solar max. So this is unusual low activity. Plus: the 10.7 cm flux is also running low at 81 stfu.

    Some day others will look back on our contemporary “news” stories and “science” with equal disbelief.

    If you want Nucking Futz, see what came out of the meeting at the United Nations Headquarters in New York from 25 to 27 September 2015
    Transforming our world: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development

    These are their goals on water.

    Quick side note: Organic Consumers Assoc and Food & Water Watch were the organizations who convinced Americans we wanted the Food Safety Modernization Act despite everything we independents tried to tell people. The head of both Organic Consumers Assoc and Food & Water Watch at that time was Canadian Maude Barlow (She was also a Director with the International Forum on Globalization) She was handsomely rewarded for selling out the US consumer with an appointment as New Senior Advisor on water to the UN president on October 21, 2008. Now we get to look at her handy work as a UN senior advisor.
