Vast Overpopulation Causes Water Shortage in Africa, not “Climate Change”

The vast increase in Africa’s population—which is estimated to double within the next 30 years, thanks to white “foreign aid”—is going to cause mass starvation, disease and water shortages, and it is false to claim that “climate change” is to blame.

According to an article in the Business Insider news service, African cities “are running out of water, and the continent needs $66 billion to avoid a crisis of disease and dehydration.”

According to the article, “African cities are experiencing devastating water shortages as their populations continue to grow. These water shortages have led to sanitation problems, which can contribute to the incidence of diseases like cholera and typhoid fever.”

The African Development Bank’s 2018 report said that it would require as much as $66 billion to provide universal access to water and sanitation across Africa, as one-third of all Africans are already affected by water scarcity— the circumstance in which a region’s available water supply isn’t enough to meet demand.

That doesn’t include the more than $170 billion needed to build critical infrastructure like dams and purification plants, the report added.

“In nations like Ghana, Mozambique, and Zimbabwe, water shortages can raise people’s risk of getting sick, since when water is in short supply, households often hoard the precious resource indoors, creating a breeding ground for disease-carrying mosquitoes,” the article continued.

“Water is also needed to run toilets and basic sanitation facilities. In its absence, residents are often forced to defecate in rivers, a practice that contaminates fresh water with bacteria, viruses, and parasites. Contaminated water also puts residents at increased risk of diseases like cholera and typhoid fever, which can cause dehydration and malnutrition.

Between 2016 and 2050, Africa’s population is expected to double, with 80 percent of new residents located in urban areas.

Another separate report by the Bloomberg news service revealed how the African inability to create or sustain infrastructure is, along with their massive increase in numbers, the reason why water shortages will inevitably occur.

In Ghana’s capital city of Accra, the report quoted shopkeeper Beatrice Kabuki as saying that the “taps flow once a week and usually at night, so we stay awake to fetch what we can store.”

Water shortages in Accra, which mostly gets regular rainfall, are mainly attributed to its inadequate and poorly maintained pipes, pumping stations and purification plants. About 4.9 million people live in the city and its surrounds, including the port city of Tema.

Another Accra resident, Joyce Ayitey, was quoted as saying that when her taps ran dry more than two years ago, the water utility company blamed road builders who destroyed its main pipelines and said the outage would be addressed within weeks, but nothing was done.

Ghana Water Co., the state-owned utility, is aware that some Accra neighborhoods have erratic water supply or are struggling with low pressure, but faces an uphill battle to tackle the problems because new neighborhoods are being developed faster than it can provide the infrastructure, spokesman Stanley Martey said by phone.

Cities and towns in several other African nations including Mozambique, Zimbabwe and Ivory Coast have been plagued by similar water shortages in recent months, manifestations of a global supply squeeze brought on by drought, population growth, urbanization and insufficient investment in dams and other infrastructure, the Bloomberg report continued.

Even nations with plentiful water resources may be unable to build sufficient dams, pipelines, pumping stations and purification plants to ensure adequate supply, and “crumbling infrastructure has compounded the effect of a crippling drought in cash-strapped Zimbabwe, resulting in water rationing in its two largest cities, Harare and Bulawayo.”

Of course, none of the race-denying journalists responsible for these reports dare to point out the reason for the “crumbling infrastructure.” The reason for their refusal to do so is based on their denial of the relationship between race and IQ, and subsequently, the level of civilization which is able to be maintained by low IQ races.

The average African IQ varies between 59 (Mozambique, Gabon, Cameroon, Guinea, Liberia, and Guinea-Bissau) and 91 (Nigeria, and Uganda)—far too low to realistically expect any of them to be able to maintain a highly complex white Western infrastructure which might be able to cope with the increased demand.

However, the real immediate reason for the crisis is the massive increase in population in Africa. This is caused directly by the endless white-originated “foreign aid” which is endlessly pumped into Africa.

None of this “aid” ever actually results in any lasting significant development, and all that it does is allow the Africans to breed ever more quickly than normal, creating the abnormal spike in their population.

Until these issues are addressed, all of Africa is destined to spiral into disaster —and no amount of wailing about “climate change” will change this fact.

    Otherwise known as Nature in action.

  2. I sometimes wonder why more concerted efforts were not made in the 1960s to curb population growth in developing countries by making birth control universally available and providing education and support to parents intent on family planning. Even now African governments seem to be indifferent to the population issue, with the exception of Ethiopia which does have a vigorous family planning program.

    $66 billion does not seem like a lot of money to provide universal access to water and sanitation across Africa. Neither does $170 billion seem like a lot of money needed to build critical infrastructure like dams and purification plants across a whole continent. It seems to me that if the African governments were better organized and there was not the misallocation of resources due to corruption then they could finance and manage the creation of the required water infrastructure themselves.

    1. Honest sociologists, if there are any, need to research the history of charities/ beneficence/ and moves to do good. Are there any successful examples at all? If people supposedly set out to help others, do they ever do so? Look at e.g. missionaries and the sad words of people like Albert Schweizer. Look at the modern huge charities which seem to be fraduluent ways to spend money from richer countries, only backed up by Jewishpaper money in any case. Look at African ‘governments’, which Valerian says ought to be ‘better organized without misallocation of resources’ – big chance of that; developed countries are loaded and burdened with corruption themselves.
