And the fourth angel poured out his vial upon the sun; and power was given unto him to scorch men with fire. And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, which hath power over these plagues: and they repented not to give him glory. (Revelation 16:8-9)
Imagine that all the known resources of drinking water have been polluted rendering them unfit for human consumption. Next, the Lord sends a great heat so severe that it scorches everyone that is exposed to its rays. Some believe that the heat will be so intense that it will cause the great ice caps of Antarctica and surrounding areas to melt resulting in major flooding worldwide. I would assume that the lack of suitable drinking water compounded by great heat would accelerate the death toll.
At this time, it is my firm belief that man has completely turned its back on God, and is totally devoted to the beast that has blinded them. Despite the severity of the plague, they would not repent of their sins.
