Cities In America Running Out of Water? Why Yes!
The town of Orme, Tennessee here in the United States is on the worst water restriction ever! They can only have water pumped into their quaint little mountain town for three hours a day, and it is outsourced from elsewhere to boot! I've got to say, places like Atlanta, Georgia are next on the list, expecting to run out of water by the end of the calendar year!
Why is this you ask? Well, I could say it's Global Warming, but it's more complicated than even that! Oh, why yes, it is Global Warming, but it's also the greed of human beings as well!
See, the entire Southeast United States, as well as the Western states, have been in a drought for the last 18 months. Even with the appearance of the El Nino (INSO) event, the driness has continued on to this very day. Politicians are pointing fingers instead of helping one another to come up with proper solutions. Oh, but isn't that just so typical, now isn't it?
These folks are fighting over who is responsible for the water usage, and who should have access to it. Boy, disasters can bring out the best as well as the worst in folks, now can't they? I will keep everyone up-to-date on this developping story as it unfolds.
