With oil still selling under $60/barrel, it is 40% cheaper than brands of pure bottled water like Evian. You pay the same amount for 95 liters of Evian water as global markets pay for a standard 159 liter barrel of oil.
This means that water projects and water bottling companies make more money on volume than oil exporters.
This explains why Libya with Gaddafi’s elaborate water project, the Nubian Sandstone Aquifer System Project Joint project famously tagged “the Great man-made river” was targeted for the New World order destruction. Gaddafi was setting up the world’s largest underwater aquifer project to potentially harness the biggest and most costly resource stockpiles in north Africa and Europe for global markets.
With four aquifer collections of water, each of range 4,800 and 20,000 cubic kilometers, Gaddafi bragged that this project was going to make the dessert green and provide food sufficiency.
NATO set out to destroy this project.
Global research reports: The United Nations Environment Program 2007 describes a so-called “water for profit scheme”, which actively promotes the privatization and monopolization for the world’s water supplies by multinational corporations. Meanwhile the World Bank recently adopted a policy of water privatization and full-cost water pricing, with one of its former directors, Ismail Serageldin, stating:
“The wars of the 21st century will be fought over water”.
Our columnist, Dr. Peregrino Brimah has earlier written on how the competition for the dwindling Lake Chad is a major reason for Boko Haram and the war in Nigeria’s northeast.
Meanwhile crude oil is losing value. To think that crude oil barrels are exchanged for half full barrels of pure water is mind boggling. Water exploration would be an essential focus of African governments including Nigeria’s new government.
As advice; if you are looking for something to bet on and invest in, you might consider that next-door water company.
