Drought is Driving Demand for Uranium

Historic drought levels are revealing surprising discoveries across the globe.

Like the megalithic formation that’s being called the “Stonehenge of Spain.”

As the waters of the Valdecañas reservoir in western Spain dropped to historic lows, they revealed the otherwise inaccessible (and nearly forgotten) archeological site that’s officially known as the Dolmen of Guadalperal.

It was built more than 5,000 years ago by an ancient people group, and it’s been 1,200 years since the Iberian peninsula has been this dry.

And then there’s this newly rediscovered World War II wreck that appeared on the Danube, in Serbia.

Low water levels exposed the hulking remains of a once-powerful, now-forgotten German battleship.

And then in China, on the Yangtze river’s dry shoreline, three Buddhist statues emerged, carved 600 years ago right into the rock.

The retreating shallows of Nevada’s Lake Mead have so far revealed everything from lost boats to missing bodies (yikes!).

And most recently, the drying banks of the Mississippi pulled back to show the rough-hewn boards of an entire 19th century riverboat.

But the best drought discovery belongs to Texas. 

There, deep in the center of the state, the receding waters of the Paluxy River exposed 113-million-year-old dinosaur tracks, now easily visible in the rock of the riverbank.

It’s been 22 years since anyone has been able to see them. 

They memorialize the hunting trail of a hungry Acrocanthosaurus as it stomped on two clawed feet up this riverbed, looking for prey.

As exciting as these revelations are, they’re reminders that the surface of this planet is changing.

And one of the greatest impacts has been on energy.

In a world where every river from the Danube to the Mississippi is fading to dust, you can’t count on hydroelectric power.

And the corresponding heat and disruption only further increases the load on the power grid — just as we’ve seen in the blackouts plaguing Texas and California (not to mention the rest of the world).

I’ve been writing for years now about the central importance of nuclear power— and they’ve continued to pay off to the tune of triple-digit gains.

But this new, thirsty version of the future only ups the ante on what’s required for the world to continue.

Uranium is one of the most defining resources of the changing future.

Driving Demand for Uranium Investing

It’s not science fiction — it’s now the everyday reality that powers our lives.

Our own uranium mining expert Gerardo del Real has painted a clear picture on what’s next for uranium.

This includes careful consideration about the geopolitical realities (Russia, China, OPEC) that influence the energy space.

If you want to build a lush portfolio that can withstand these new challenges, Gerardo’s uranium recommendations are the best place for your money.

As the waters recede, they’ll continue to lay bare the emerging realities of our world.
