NEED A DRINK OF WATER

February 17, 2014

article-2169499-13F1FA69000005DC-304_634x441As the North East United States looks out their windows at the tons of snow on the ground the rest of the country and a good portion of the world I s looking at drought conditions the like of which hasn’t been seen in over fifty years. Now it’s not so much where are we going to get water for that new office building as it is how are we going to get water for what we already have. Other parts of the world have experienced this many times in their history but in the US it doesn’t happen, all that often. The effect won’t be felt economically for a few months yet then the price of everything will start to skyrocket. Companies that make hybrid seeds like Monsanto love this because their seeds don’t need as much water to produce. It means the small farmer will be the first to go away as water will be rationed and as usual the people with the money will get it before the little guy. But the real problem especially in states like California and Texas will be drinking water. Now don’t you people in the north or the east think your safe all you need is one really dry summer and you as screwed as everyone else. So when you’re on your knees praying for no rain remember what the result will be and don’t think oh I’ll just stock up on bottled water, unless of course your prepared to pay $10 for a 12 oz bottle. This is Flounder saying CIAO from Colombia.
