GLOBAL WATER SHORTAGE…Meat Lockdown Needed, Potsdam Scientist Suggests – Watts Up With That?

The COVID crisis has worked wonderfully for the cheerleaders and lockdown addicts. It turned out that it was indeed possible to panic shame into accepting restrictions and bans.


But everyone knows that the days are numbered for the COVID crisis and therefore another crisis will be needed if the wonderful lockdowns and restrictions are to continue. But the “climate crisis” is just so old and many citizens simply do not buy it. Another crisis is needed to kindle the flames of panic and keep freedom in check.

What could it be?

One crisis that is currently circulating is the “global water crisis”. This, when combined with the global warming crisis, naturally leads to mass crop failure, thirst and subsequent mass starvation in the hundreds of millions, unless we act now (lockdown).

In a brand new interview, another bald European doomsday scientist warns that we are now in the middle of a global water crisis – and of course, time is running out and fundamental changes need to be implemented quickly, including a meat ban.

In a new interview, the researcher from the Potsdam Climate Institute (PIK) Prof. Dr. Dieter Gerten says the “increasing water shortage” is due to population growth and of course to “climate change”.

Signs of this are, of course, forest fires in California and Oregon caused by severe drought. And with only three years under normal rainfall as scientific evidence, even Germany is supposedly drying up, suggests Gerten.

Warmer means drier?

Gerten warns that the water shortage in some regions would worsen considerably even with global warming of only 2 degrees. No matter what experts like NOAA claim – something that Gerten doesn’t mention.

For Europe, Gerten predicts much wetter winters and extremely drier summers and warns that this will have serious consequences for agriculture.

Water as a human right

As a solution, Gerten cited Peter Gleick, suggesting a new integrated ecosystem management and a new water ethics that consider water a human right.

To limit evaporation from agricultural land, Gerten suggests covering arable land with straw to retain moisture. Another solution is rainwater harvesting in ponds for use in dry periods. “Field studies show that crop yields can be doubled or even quadrupled by simply making better use of water,” explains Gerten.

Why do PIK scientists know and farmers don’t?

“Not so long ago we calculated worldwide that if such measures were carried out on all available agricultural land, we would see massive increases in production wherever it is colored green (17:42). […] The yields would increase without having to use a drop more water. “

Gerten warns that climate change will make eating considerably more difficult, especially in the red-colored regions (20:50) due to more heat and drought.

Veggie diet can save 40% water

Gerten later suggests that the water crisis could largely be averted through a vegetarian diet, which according to a study (Vanham et al. 2016) requires around 40% less water for food production.

That is the goal: to make everyone vegetarians. The meat barrier is in preparation.
