I've read the entire letter, and it's interesting. Although, even if it's possible for all this to happen by 2070 and maybe earlier, i still can't be 100% sure that it's actually written in 2070.

Personally, I don't believe the earth can run out of water. Water doesn't just dissipate into space. It remains on the planet and recycles.

This sounds more like a political statement to me....unless, of course, the water was contaminated with radiation....

The Saudi's live in a desert. They run solar powered desalinization plants offshore. And apparently they produce so much water this way that no one is in need of water. All the water produced is free to the public without any usage restrictions. So I don't think the letter is true at all. Just another hoax. NEXT!

Not from the future! If I wanted to avoid the word hoax, I would kindly say it is a fictional account of a possible near future, presented as truth, in order to present a persuasive argument for environmental responsibility.

Even though there will still be water on Earth, half of it will be in vapour form, due to global warming.

When enough water vapor gathers, it rains.

Is Global Warming Real:

My answer is simple: YES and NO

Yes: When you look at the tremendous pollution of China at ground level and upper atmosphere which is caught up in the jet streams which flow around the planet, I truly believe you’re going to have global warming to a small degree because of the pollution holding the heat closer to the earth surface.

No: When you look at the history of planet Earth over the last 500 million years or longer there is a cycle of global warming and global cooling off, of which I do not understand, but I know it does happen.
