Was your California orange irrigated with wastewater from oil wells? Quite possibly yes.

Just one more of a whole bunch of reasons to go 100% renewable!

Will there come a day when no more clean water will be available on planet Earth?

Great, more underhanded methods that will more than likely lead to trouble and tragedy. Thanks Cal.

I dearly hope not, but I would not be surprised also.

Treated human waste has been used on farmland for decades......to grow your food in . .

Your "organic" produce is either treated with human or animal waste for fertilizer. Chemical fertilizers may be made from petroleum products, rocks, or even organic sources. Your choice.

Jeeperscreepers..... not a good thing, don't they just filter it a little ?

There WILL be a day when we truly regret the way we worked with the water on this here little earth... I guarantee it....

I don't doubt it. We're all accustomed to the taste, as we receive our daily dose from the 1%, so they probably figure we won't notice a new blend. I wonder what they order when they dine out so frequently, and if it comes from the usual kitchen stock, or got flown in special? Of course there's a few of them that get kicks drinking civet cat Doo Brew coffee. So, that bunch are regular gourmets who have an acquired taste for "Cock-a-doodle-doo-doo" and "Civet Blivets". They're way ahead of us in adapting to the way of life with so few resources left. I think "Taster's Choice" ought to make a blend of Civet Doo coffee especially for the 1% that rules and has destroyed Earth---and call it, "Instant Karma".
