Dr. Tim Ball returns to It’s Rainmaking Time!™ to deliver an insightful look into the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). The NAFTA, which came into effect on January 1, 1994, created the world’s largest trade bloc between Canada, Mexico, and the United States. As with the European Union, NAFTA has apparently laid the foundation for a larger agenda – one regarding the transfer of water resources throughout the continent, having provisioned all the necessary mechanisms to do so. Often a subject of glossed-over political controversy, the story behind NAFTA dovetails into the histories of Rome and the Native Americans, drought and water diversion schemes in North America, resource distribution and trade between Canada and the United States, and the concept of continentalism. Dr. Tim Ball guides us through this diverse picture with characteristic thoroughness, explaining why NAFTA came into being – and what it means for the future of North America’s water resources.
