Mexico’s newest export to US may be water
Western states are looking south of the border for water to fill drinking glasses, flush toilets and sprinkle lawns, as four major U.S. water districts help plan one of two huge desalination plant proposals in Playas de Rosarito, about 15 miles south of San Diego. Combined, they would produce 150 million gallons a day, enough to supply more than 300,000 homes on both sides of the border.
I gather that the plan is to put these desalination plants in Mexico so US corporations can avoid environmental regulations. On Fred Pilot's recommendation I just watched National Geographic's Collapse, a documentary on how and why our civilization may collapse. Just some light Sunday morning viewing. I have read a bunch of books about this, so it wasn't new material, but it is an excellent 90 minute summary of the situation we face. And of course we here in the US are busy debating evolution.
