the great star, or wormwood poisoning the waters, making them bitter, could also be about...
nuclear bombs - explosions like great stars, certainly would poison the drinkable waters.
Here are the Bible's references to Wormwood with my understanding put in capitol letters:
10 When the third angel blew his trumpet, a great star (LIKELY TO BE A HUGE METEOR ) fell from heaven. It was burning like a torch, and it fell on a third of the rivers (THIS IS THOUGHT TO REFER TO THE RIVERS IN THE COUNTRIES THAT WERE PART OF THE ROMAN EMPIRE THAT WAS IN EXISTENCE WHEN THIS BOOK WAS WRITTEN) and on a third of the fountains of water.(THIS COULD REFER TO NATURAL UNDERGROUND SPRINGS THAT PROVIDE DRINKING WATER) 11 The name of the star was Wormwood, and a third of the water turned bitter. Many people died because the water was so bitter.(IT IS THOUGHT THAT THIS METEOR WILL BE CONTAMINATED WITH CHEMICALS FROM THE POISONOUS WORMWOOD PLANT WHICH IS MENTIONED IN JER.9:15)
