Jean-Claude Van Damme visionary? An excerpt from the documentary From Jean-Claude to Van Damme broadcast in 2010 on TF6 has resurfaced in recent days, reports the Huffigton Post. After drinking from the bottle, the actor worries about the water resources of our planet.
“I love water, in 20 or 30 years there won’t be any more. I hope not,” he says. Only 12 years later, the possibility of water shortage has never been so threatening. France and more broadly Europe is currently facing a historic drought. More than 100 municipalities in France find themselves deprived of drinking water.
A phrase by Jean-Claude Van Damme already cult
New heat waves are expected and global warming worries experts who are increasing the warnings about the lack of water. In this context, many Internet users have brought out this little sentence from JCVD, which was already cult. The Twitter account “Countdown before there is no more water” was even created with the photo of the comedian drinking from a bottle.
But the tone this time is much less mocking towards Jean-Claude Van Damme. The soil moisture index has been, since July 17, 2022, lower than that recorded during the historic droughts of 1976 and 2003, recalls the HuffPost. The month of July was one of the hottest on record in the world, the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), a specialized UN agency based in Geneva, said on Tuesday.
Last month, the body called for leaders to be “awakened” to heat waves like the one Europe is currently experiencing, which are set to become more frequent due to climate change at least until the next few years. 2060. Jean-Claude Van Damme confirms.
