The Smallest Sphere: What Most of the Small Wars of the 21st Century Will Be Fought Over

1. Only an Obamabot would believe that the amount of water on the earth diminishes and does not remain constant.

2. Can we please see a sphere relative to the planet of all humanity? I'm guessing it would be far smaller than the sphere of fresh water.

Another false eco panic. Every drop of freshwater on earth will flow in to the sea and become salt water sooner or later. But, as long as it keeps raining, and not even the most fevered eco nut can claim that it won't, the freshwater that has flowed to the sea will be replaced.

Most of it seems to be falling out of the sky on me in the north west of England, you don't have to fight me for it as I'll happily give it away for free.

I've heard that Canada has 25% of the world's fresh water. This troubles me, and at the same time makes me glad that I'll be dead and gone by the time my country is invaded for our water.
