SHORTAGE OF FRESH WATER


The global shortage of the fresh water in the nearby future is eminent and is already a social and humanist disaster. Periodical droughts in the main foods producing regions are causing severe economic and environmental impacts  


The problem of drinking water and access to its consumption is recognized as one of the most important objectives of the Millennium Development Goals, the UN Millennium Declaration in 2000.

Nearly a decade ago, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon stated in his report during the World Water Day, March, 22, 2010, that every 20 seconds a child dies of diseases related to the shortage a clean water.  




DRINKING WATER WILL BECOME THE NEW OIL


Studies and analyses done by the Moscow State Institute of International Relations (MGIMO) in 2011 showed that that an acute shortage of drinking water may occur earlier than that of the oil leading to the aggravation of national and international conflicts.




ARTIFICIALLY STIMULATED PRECIPITATION IS OF THE OUTMOST IMPORTANCE.


The basis of precipitation is condensation of atmospheric water vapour as it is cooled down to the point of dew (i.e. to 100% relative humidity)



A given volume of atmosphere can only contain a certain amount of water vapour that is related to a predetermined temperature (the dew point)


The water vapour is always present in the atmosphere and represents an estimates 6 times the amount of all freshwater resources in the world. Due to the global warming the atmospherical vapour content increases.

Even a small rain-shower can produce thousands of tons of fresh water.




MITIGATION OF THE OF THE WEATHER PENDULUM  BETWEEN DROUGHT AND FLOOD


As our warming atmosphere holds more water vapour - and more heat- the weather phenomena become more intense.  Resulting in a increasing number of droughts, intense storms, and floods, that poses risks to public health, food production and overall our future.


In a controlled way stimulating artificial precipitation may safely reduce the vast fluctuations in the weather pendulum "drought - flood", by diminishing the heat-moisture content and release as rain.

SHORTAGE OF FRESH WATER

“If climate change is the shark, then water is its teeth.”

It is an issue on which businesses need far greater levels of awareness and understanding.

GROUNDWATER DEPLETION IS ACCELERATING


Groundwater is the largest reservoir of freshwater.

People depend on it for agriculture and their daily lives. Groundwater depletion has become a serious issue for many years, as it is used up faster than it can be recharged
