Humanity May Face Choice By 2040: Conventional Energy Or Drinking Water

It’s going to decide on conventional energy, and let people filter their water. One unintended consequence of destroying the drinking water with fracking is that whites can use technology to filter our water and live somewhere that ininhabitable for others, and carve out a White separatist community in the Dead Lands.

It’s going to be all about water. I’m pretty sure that distilling water will get the fracking chemicals out of it. With a Villager Sun Oven:

You can get several gallons of water in a few minutes to boiling level with just the energy of the sun, and distill it off. When it’s not sunny, we’ll use woodgas. Also, all urine will be recycled, and the solids will be used as fertilizer.

Rainwater will be collected and stored in large water tanks. I know someone who already does that.

We’ll create an ecological utopia in the place that was destroyed by the oil industry. The government will leave us alone and ignore us . . . until it’s too late for them.

We can grow non-food products in polluted areas as well, as long as the pollution does not prevent the plants from growing. Polluted, “uninhabitable” lands created by industrial-ecological catastrophes will be a blessing in disguise for us.

A set of studies based on three years of research concludes that by 2040, the need for drinking water and water for use in energy production will create dire shortages.

Conventional electricity generation is the largest source of water use in most countries. Water is used to cool power plants to keep them functional. Most power utilities don’t even record the amount of water they use.

“It’s a huge problem that the electricity sector do not even realize how much water they actually consume,” says Professor Benjamin Sovacool of Denmark’s Aarhus University, one of the institutions involved in the research. “And together with the fact that we do not have unlimited water resources, it could lead to a serious crisis if nobody acts on it soon.”

The research, which included projections of the availability of water and the growth of the world’s population…

    There is a deep misunderstanding about water usage here.

    Water usage is divided into consumptive and nonconsumptive types. The difference is whether or not water withdrawn from a source is returned to that source. The classical consumptive usage is irrigated agriculture, which happens to be the largest water usage in the US, the cited article not withstanding. There is, as expected, very little irrigated agriculture in wet Europe or the US east of the Mississippi (the major climatological/meteoroligal boundary in North America.) Irrigated agriculture is consumptive because a large part of the applied water evaporates. Irrigation is always done in arid regions because of lack of rainfall and high evaporation rates, viz. California’s Central Valley. This creates a number of issues for the irrigating farmer, most especially soil salinization.

    The second biggest water usage in the US is thermoelectric power production. But this is largely nonconsumptive because the cooling water is mostly returned to the source. Some cooling systems do make use of evaporation, but overall the usage is non consumptive.

    Other nonconsumptive uses include domestic water supply and industrial water supply. In almost all these cases the water is returned to the source after some sort of treatment.

    The water flow in major rivers in Europe and the eastern US are often used and reused several times before the rivers reach the sea.

    So, aside from irrigated agriculture, the great majority of water uses do not reduce the amount of water available although they may contaminate it. The great problem the Third World has is not water volume but water contamination.

    Fracking, like any engineering activity, can be done well or badly. That is why we have an EPA and environmental laws and regulations. It has been demonstrated repeatedly, despite Green superstitions, that fracking can be done safely, and several of the so-called horror stories have been shown to be fraudulent. Think Michael Moore and Cuban vs US medicine. However, safe tracking, like all engineering/industial activity, requires diligent regulators.

    So, the alleged choice is utterly fraudulent. No choice is required. Water and energy are mutually compatible.

    However, Green superstition and modern industrial democracy are not compatible.

      Bob,

      Do you believe that Genetically Modified Food is safe and none of us should be paranoid about it as well?

      Do you think Rachel Carson and Silent Spring was a fraud too?

      You have an absolutist idea that ecologists are always wrong and industrialists are always right. I am suspicious of any kind of absolutist thinking in scientific matters.

    • Anon says:

      water is also not particularly fungible so water in America can’t realistically be moved to another continent(where the population growth is mostly happening) for example.

    Involuntary parks.

    Sovacool is an academic fraud; a propagandist, not a scientist.

    • mindweapon says:

      Mr. Rational,

      Can your back up your statement about Sovacool?

      • Mr. Rational says:

        This is just a sample of Sovacool’s academic misconduct.

      • mindweapon says:

        I agree with Sovacool about the problem with nuclear power. When it fails, you can’t control the damage. It goes way way way bad. They still haven’t fixed Fukushima, and probably never will.

      • Mr. Rational says:

        Sovacool is wrong, building his fraudulent edifice on top of many frauds before him.  This goes back to the beginning of the movement.  When Herman Müller published his paper on the Linear No-Threshold hypothesis (for which he received a Nobel), he was already in possession of data collected by Ernst Caspari which showed that it was wrong.  That data was suppressed for political purposes.  In fact, the entire Fukushima evacuation zone has radiation levels just a fraction of those in places like hot springs and the beaches of Kerala.  For thousands of years, people have gone there for their health!

        In the case of Fukushima, efforts to control the damage were halted by order of prime minister Naoto Kan.  This is why politicians have no business being involved in emergency management.

        I suppose a “worse is better” philosophy could justify Sovacool’s goals, but his justifications are worse than nonsense.  And in the world that comes out of even China’s continued use of coal, I’m not sure Whites can survive.  Sub-tropical conditions up to the arctic circle favor the r-selected, disease-resistant, and tribally-oriented over anything resembling Nordic genes and culture.

    Mushrooms, Mindweapon, mushrooms! They require very little energy and are out of sight. Kombucha, red wrigglers, black soldier fly larvae . . . .

    You know what annoys me a lot about this? That because of the interests that the oil companies have for more and more and more money, there aren’t enough investments in alternate energy sources.
    Call me a dreamer, but i for one sincerely think that if there really was an interest, a fusion (not fision) power plant would have been available by now and it could solve most of the pollution/energy problems, but since that would mean that most oil companies and arab oil-kings would have no more profit of course there barely are any investments.

    • Craig says:

      Exactly it’s the oil, coal mines and other energy sources like nuclear that need to fund the transition to alternative production sources, which is really expensive for us peons, under the Fascist capitalist model. If it was to happen the oil and coal mines would probably have to be nationalised in some way to do it. Greenies call for totalitarianism quite often. There’s talk of a SA coal mine funding a larger thermal salt solar array to supply Adelaide’s power needs so it may be possible, not with out fossil fuels though. Perhaps the expense will bring Nationalism back.

      Fracking sucks some farmers already have places where cattle can’t drink bore water, and farmlands around the evaporation pits are also being contaminated. It is what it is, just like any mining. It will be interesting to see where the fracking goes, one contaminated river with farming towns on it, is all it’ll take I rekon, particularly if it goes through the ground water. The petrochemicals used are also hormone disruptor’s great huh.

      Slow sand filter with activated charcoal in the aerator will remove the petrochemicals, you could make a really large charcoal pre filter too,if it’s horrid. A lot cheaper and more productive then evaporator. All you need is a pump, built in infrastructure and a technician to operate and maintain it.

        Thanks for this info, Craig.

      We’ve got fusion power, the issue is getting a net positive return from it, to say nothing of a commercially viable return. Its been worked on for decades, but as it turns out that sort of thing is hard. Likewise for solar, the big issues(apart from people not being willing to make long term investments in neighborhoods they will abandon in a few years), are the difficulty to refine silicon to the purities required, and the energy storage problem.

    But They’re NOT forgetting or ignoring the rural types. They’re already planning and working to urbanise them. http://theunsolicitedopinion.com/2014/01/29/goals-2050/
