More Evidence that the END IS NEAR!

Rudolf, Man of Peace More Evidence that the END IS NEAR!
Both China and India are running out of water. As most people are aware, China comprises 25% of the world's population. However, most people are not aware that in less than 20 years India may surpass China in population. In other words, these two countries together are soon projected to be 50% of the world's population.  
 
Here are some dire facts about the looming water crisis in these two countries:

Bottom line is that it is comming: Massive human death by thirst. I fully expect there to be a mass exodus away from China and India in the next 20 years to North America and Europe. After that, these two contentents will also be overwhelmed by a lack of water because they too will have too many straws sucking out of the glass that holds the ground water.  
 
Nobody will be immune.

Book Of The Day The Ultimate Tone, Volume III by Kevin O'Connor
Have you ever wondered if there is a better way to build a Bassman, Champ, Plexi, an 800, AC-30, Bulldog or Portaflex? Or you wanted to build an SVT with off-the-shelf parts? How about a master-volume amp that doesn’t change tone with the master setting? Everything you need to know is right here, including: proper grounding techniques, wiring methods, and mechanical considerations. Eighteen chapters cover the “iconic” amps everyone knows and loves, with schematics and layouts for each, along with the technical history of the product. Eyelet-board and chassis-mounted tube socket construction is used throughout, for easy servicing and modding. TUT3 is very accessible even if you cannot fully read a schematic and is a "must have" if you are going to build an amp for your self.

Well, my take on your comment is this:  
 
I'm probably about as accurate as the civil engineer who 10 years ago accessed the New Orleans levy system and told the world that it will break apart if it is ever directly hit by a hurricaine.  
 
Nobody believed him either.

Wrong...they belived him. It was common knowledge. The problem was not recognition but funding. Still is.
