Water flow in the United States is determined by continental divides,
the great divide, the northern divide, the eastern divide and the St. Lawrence Seaway divide. The importance of understanding
the water flow in the USA in paramount in the later days. The Bible speaks of famines and fearful sights that will happen.
Famines can be caused by scarceness of water or floods, among other things. During droughts and perilous floods, geographical
locations in relationship to continental divides could be a matter of life and death, as well as, production and prices
of food, and the price of land, just to name a few.
divides will also give clues as to what regions of the country in which to invest, and in what companies in which to buy
stocks during the perilous times to come. The price of water could be at a very high premium before the end-times.
Who knows how much a gallon of pure water will cost in the days to come. There are already governmental concerns of pure
drinking water and sanitation problems that exist today. In droughts these issues will greatly increase.
Today, states are in legal battles over water rights of rivers, lakes and streams,
etc. Governments are now purchasing water from one another. These issues can and will effect the migration of people to
a greater degree in the last days when the troubled times prophesied in the Bible play out.
Luke 21:11 And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and
great signs shall there be from heaven. These are the words of Jesus, who said that all of these things must come to pass.
There is no changing them. However, He also said to His people to not be fearful or troubled over them. He has always
protected those who walk uprightly before him and he always will. The Bible plainly teaches of two things that will bring
God's judgment on nations and individuals, disobedience to his word and turning from Israel. Either will bring these end-time
signs upon a nation. Man has been forewarned. There is no wrong judgment with God. Lack of knowledge is no excuse. God
has plainly made known the things that will come on disobedience as well as obedience. Those that obey, blessings but to
those who disobey, a curse and they will not come without cause.
As investors, what do we need to look for to occupy in these areas? Water and sanitation utilities will be very
active from now on. Much government spending is in effect and will continue into the future, but it will not be enough.
Corporations will also be required to address these mounting water problems. The first rule in economics is to see the
need, calculate the risk and meet the need. Wise investors will find the companies that are doing this and get involved.
What better investment that the betterment of a nation. Continental divides in troubled times will determine the electric
companies in which to invest, due to importance of water in the making electricity. In my opinion, look to the heartland
of this nation to find wise investments in the future.
Water Pollution A Major Global Problem
Water pollution has become a major global problem. Nations such as India and China must import drinking water
due to large populations. Today China is having problems with water shortages, not having enough water for drinking,
industrial use and watering of crops. One of the fastest growing areas of the clean-tech sector is water, second only
to energy. Granted, clean energy gets the most attention, but clean water is becoming an essential high priority. According
to sector experts, water could possible take the lead in the coming decades. In the clean-tech sector, earning good investment
returns from innovations in the water sector is a real challenge. Presently, there are industry associations formed to
promote entrepreneurial involvement in water technologies.
Only 3% of the water on earth is freshwater, with 1.5 billion people globally not having access to it. According to industry
experts water is the the third largest industry on earth, representing $550 billion of revenues. They also indicate that
75% of U.S. water infrastructure will need to be replaced, at a cost of hundreds of billions of dollars. The way we move,
treat and filter water has changed little since the time of Julius Caesar. This fact alone should open creative minds
to new innovations.
According to these same experts,
innovation is not happening at the required pace: only $130 million in venture capital was placed in 33 water deals in
2009, with little corporate, academic and public sector resources and research and development centers involved. In 2009,
$172 billion were the capital expenditures in the water-related sector, with an estimated $30-60 billion per year in North
America over the next several years, within the 52,000 community water systems and 155,000 non-community water systems.
It is estimated that 20-25 percent of all treated water is lost through leaks. Doubtless the water sector has been overlooked
in opportunities to profit. Now and going forward may be a good time to dive in a make a big splash of profits in clean
NASA Monitoring Water Supplies From Space
is monitoring water supplies and conditions from space. It is deemed that over 20,000 water bodies within
the United States do not meet water quality standards. NASA satellites are improving pollution monitoring for the Chesapeake Bay and other
watersheds around the nation According to a report from the American Society of Agronomy, part of the Clean Water Act of 1972 requires monitoring how much pollution can be carried by a body of water before
it is deemed polluted.
Water companies will make their
share of money selling water to the developing world. Fresh water is predicted to be the next ‘big oil’
of the world, with supplies in some areas growing exceedingly tight according to the facts now available.
Water shortages could be a huge gobal problem much larger than the present shortages before the return of Christ, leading
to wars and rumor of wars that He spoke of two thousand years ago. Interestingly, the rich oil countries of the mideast are poor in water.
Global water shortage
is more that health organazations of the world can address alone. Corporations will be needed to bring clean water to the world. Investors can do their part to help by investing in such companies while making return on their investments.
It's a win win situation.
