We should not be interfering with natural water flow.

Ever since we went through drought and water-reduction methods in CA when I was about 12 in the mid70s, I have wondered.... "We can build these huge pipelines to carry fuel around the country, where is the country's plan to share and reduce use of water?".....not that I want to take water away from those who need it most, but we do need to think at the bigger picture levels.....we need to think world-wide and futuristic, too, not just locally and for the here and now....

water worries, cause food worries, cause lots of trouble everywhere.....

.....the other questions should be about crop types (which types are best), pesticide/herbicide use vs organic (i.e. composting), etc......

Cree Prophecy:
When all the trees have been cut down,
When all the animals have been hunted,
When all the waters are polluted,
When all the air is unsafe to breathe,
Only then will you discover
You cannot eat money.
