This long-term trend threatens your family. Be Ahead of the Power Curve By Making…
Simple Changes to Secure Your Food, Water, and Energy Supply To AVOID Dependence On Feeble Supply Chains, Predetory Markets, and Bankrupt Governments
What will you do when the tap stops running?
Yemen could very likely be the first country to completely run out of water.
Since the 1960s, water levels in the Dead Sea have fallen almost 150 feet. 19 of their 21 aquifers have water tables dropping by over 6 feet per year.
The country’s capital, Sana, has made tap water available once in every four days [a smaller city further south only has one day of water every 20 days]. Even with this rationing, they expect to run dry within 6 years.
Nothing will make the water return. No government action, no conservation method. Desalinization efforts will hardly make a dent.
You may have become immune to the headlines discussing the unprecedented shift across the globe. Drought conditions, extreme weather patterns, geopolitical risks, financial meltdown and high unemployment are only to name a few.
Those are what make headlines. Behind the scenes, a fragile, interconnected system is quickly coming apart sometimes all too gradually.
You may not know it, but the across the globe, the tropical zone is moving north. In fact, the tropical band which includes a majority of the globe’s rainfall shifted 5 degrees in latitude, or 343 miles.
It took over 400 years to do so at first. Now Scientific American expects it to happen again in the next 85 years.
The damaging effect is flooding in places that have never seen it. Last year, Canada was 90% behind in planting its wheat because of muddy fields.
All the while, Texas and Mexico were suffering their worst drought in decades.
You see, as the tropics move further north, the subtropics follow.
The subtropical belt suffers severe drought. You’re seeing the effects in the southwest America’s, but you probably don’t know how severe this has been in the Middle East.
A Movement To Combat the Horrific Trends
While most bury their heads in the sand or may seek government or business solutions, there is a small group that is securing their future.
Two things can happen to this group.
They will profit, or they will sustain. By the way, there’s nothing stopping them from using these new strategies for their own profits.
Those with their heads buried have a less than gloomy future to look forward to.
Whether you were aware of these troubling trends, you probably know most are too paralyzed to take control of their future. You may be one of them.
What you may forget is that there are small changes in your daily lives that can secure critical supplies for your family…
…And you won’t need:
- endless storage [and continuous replacement] of emergency food supplies
- underground escape plans
- large capital investments in XYZ
- heavy firepower
- expensive ‘toolkits’ repackaging everyday items
Fortunately, two things are in plentiful supply that will sustain your family for years into the future. But you must learn to properly harness them
In fact, it doesn’t even matter WHICH disaster may come…
The SAME solution for an energy, water or food crisis
We’ve spent years to arrive to this solution. And now it’s a solution that has been implemented in our households. We’re prepared.
We’ve made the small changes that put us in control of our outcome.
This sort of work gives us a unique perspective on global trends. These trends take years to develop and don’t make headlines. But honestly, you probably won’t be surprised if some of these breaking points are hit tomorrow. Then the news agencies will work backward and explain why this ‘black swan’ event was so obvious.
You often see politicians or claims for independence. Always optimism that someone will come up with a solution.
But those haven’t and won’t happen.
This realization wakes you up to the points in your life that you could have used to take control. The simple changes that can be made to free yourself from the thralls of conflict.
To be resilient. To be fine.
We’ve seen one trend that puts everything at risk you’ve worked hard to earn and acquire through your time.
Maybe it’s best said from a passage out of our friend John Robb’s Amazon Bestselling book, A Brave New War, from 2007:
This trend is in the process of putting ever-more-powerful technological tools and the knowledge of how to use them into an ever-increasing number of hands. Economically, this is fantastic news. This transfer of technological leverage means faster productivity growth and improvements in incomes. Within the context of war, however, this is dire news, because this trend dictates that technology will leverage the ability of individuals and small groups to wage war with equal alacrity.
Within this larger context, the conflict we are now engaged in is merely a waypoint on this trend line. The threshold necessary for small groups to conduct warfare has finally been breached, and we are only starting to feel its effects. Over time, perhaps in as little as twenty years, and as the leverage provided by technology increases, this threshold will finally reach its culmination — with the ability of one man to declare war on the world and win. Now, with every improvement in genetic engineering and nanotechnology (only some of many potential threats), we come closer to the day when a single person will have the budget, the knowledge, and the tools necessary to make this future possible.
Small Groups Are Making A HUGE Impact (and You Can Too…)
It’s an alarming change and we’re seeing these small groups wage war on our supply chains, impacting our energy sources and potentially targeting critical water and food supplies.
- Arab Spring
- Al Queda
- Pirates seizing ships off the African Coast
These individuals or small groups can dramatically impact your everyday life.
And the war isn’t always as distant as it seems. Economic times are as tough as they’ve been since the Great Depression. It’s the game changing technological advances that are enabling us to keep our current standard of living.
At best, we’re in for a long plateau with no improvement of one’s daily standard of living.
At worst, we’ll see a rise of famine and death.
But as the trend for the past 200 years of political and economic power shifting to the privileged few, my counter-insurgency intuition has kicked in.
Technological advances in health, communications, and science have significant economic benefits. Innovations now arrive at lightning fast pace.
One person can change the world.
Zuckerberg has done it with Facebook. Bill Gates and Steve Jobs with computer usage. Hawking has done it with theoretical physics. Heck, maybe you could even say Al Gore made a major impact with his global warming message [whether you agree or not].
It’s not necessary that you change the world. What is necessary is that you change the way your family interacts with the world.
The best news is that the changes are simple
Small changes to your daily routine that make a big difference. Minor changes in your interaction with your local community.
These leave lasting impact on your world.
You’re not alone in these endeavors. It has become clear though that a growing contingent is finding ways to remove their reliance.
They are contrarians. Going local. Profitably.
They are innovators. Finding new ways to carry out an old task.
They are efficient. Reducing waste within their supply chain.
They are sustainable. Producing a surplus of food and energy.
Most of all, they are RESILIENT.
To accomplish these tasks, they combine the innovation of technological advances with a healthy dose of what enabled our predecessors to survive in any economic, political or social climate.
They view the shifting power curve to their advantage, staying ahead of the masses. This leaves their income, their food supply, their water sources, the legacy they leave for their family untouched.
You see, the decision to become resilient is a generational movement.
Maybe it was your grandfather who purchased gold and said that governments always devalue the currency.
Or your uncle who was a farmer and taught you how valuable fertile soil and water supply is to his livelihood.
Or maybe there was just that guy you met in college who always seemed to get his way through. He had the network and know-how to stay a little ahead of the trouble.
Those experiences leave a lasting impact on how you view the world.
All too often, you get tied up in daily life. Stuck making it paycheck to paycheck, job to job, to really extract these life lessons of thorough planning and staying ahead of the curve.
Fads come and go, that’s why so many have closets full of clothes, garages full of widgets and investment accounts sitting on capital losses. You’re no better off chasing fad after fad.
The small changes this growing contingent is making have a lasting impact on their legacy. And no matter what, they’re NOT WORSE OFF.
This group is utilizing renewable resources to control the most necessary requirements to feed their family. Food and water.
Did you know it’s possible to acquire over 6500 gallons of water in the driest areas of the Arizona desert?
Luckily there are two things that won’t go away. Sun and water. Well at least the experts tell us we have another 5 billion years of sunlight. Water, of course is a different story.
Although the much of the globe is facing drought, there’s no evidence that global rainfall is decreasing. Rainfall is more sporadic, leading to more run-off. Temperatures are higher, leading to more evaporation. Shifts in the tropical zones are reallocating the distribution of the rain. Pollution leads to less consumable water.
But on the other side, we waste more water than we use.
Over 2.5 billions per day are wasted watering the world’s golf courses. Then flooded with pesticides to make sure it can never be used again.
Another 5.4 billion gallons are wasted in the US alone on inefficient fixtures and appliances.
You see, it’s not as much about passively consuming water, but becoming an active producer of it.
That’s why we’ve written a special report called ‘Water Abundance: How to Declare Your Water Sovereignty’.
It’s the first complete report for Resilient Communities.
Today, we’d like to give you this report for free.
This comprehensive report explores the reason water is becoming such a scarce commodity. More importantly, it covers a simple technique you can use to provide food and water to your family without interruption.
Here are a few of the highlights from ‘Water Abundance: How to Declare Your Water Sovereignty’.
- Why climate change is going to be a global catastrophe
- How to produce water for you, your family and your community
- The three things you need to begin capturing water
- Eight principles from “the Rainman”
- Using swales and brumes to control water flows
- A calculation of the square footage needed to harvest enough water to supply your family with water
- Nine simple water saving tips that are used in Australia
- Pictures and tools used to collect rainwater
- A sample rainwater irrigation system, complete with pictures of each step in the process
- Q&A with an innovative expert on how these tactics can be used to grow a local business
- And most importantly…how easily a family of four can use these methods to have enough water to grow a large and bountiful garden
Using this method, you could acquire over 6500 gallons of water per year from an average home in the driest locations of Arizona.
Water may be the most important factor in the next 100 years. That’s why we felt obligated to share what we’ve learned on this topic with you. And better yet, as a free bonus.
It’s Resilience That Really Matters…and Good News…It’s Easier Than You Think
We’ve met dozens of experts, traveled to many existing communities seeking to be ahead of the trend, and coined the term resilient community to separate this movement from the sustainable communities who seek to shelter themselves from society.
A resilient community isn’t about separating itself; it’s about changing the dynamic of its interaction with society. Rather than consuming, they produce. Rather than sustaining, they innovate. This keeps a resilient community exporting value to the world rather than just living off it. This is what makes a resilient community stay in front of the power curve. Always able to adapt to any trend that may appear or sudden shocks to the system that are bound to occur.
These groups and individuals are becoming more common, but they’re all seeking direction. Groups in France are finding amazing ways to use urban yardscaping. Folks in America need to know.
