This report here has a lot of details whats going on with our water and how it is wasted. What is your current water setup at your homestead? We have a well so far and plan so add underground water storage at a different location for rainwater collection.
This sounds really bad. Sorry to hear this about your friends. I still believe SHTF before, for whatever reasons. But if we humans can’t find reasons for war soon enough, like you said, water will be the final tipping point.
I think the last 20 – 30 years corporate greed and the government that is controlled by those powers has taken over in a lot of western countries. You can still live free there! Just now you have to be rich to be free and buy your rights or lawyer yourself out of any mess. Freedom has become exclusive… thats pretty twisted.
