I think without the key words no one will know what I speak of. I believe it extends from nearly the Canadian border to nearly Mexico. It provides water for about 35 percent of the "vegetable" food you eat.

Well said friend. The only possible thing that constricts me from a full on frontal assault is jobs and costs of goods. These need of ours on fossils has got to be reined in.
Tim it seems to me that fracking is clearly a problem. And as I understand it the biggest threat is disposal of the waste water it produces. They think it would be a good idea to drill down through the aquifer and dump it below the aquifer. One more
Me too. Off my head I can see this issue having the same impact as the controversy of Climate Change. I am still going to read more in the future . . .
Tim I looked into this at my son's prodding. He pointed me too a protest. When I read up on it, I saw the press really only talked about the protesters and police and didn't address the issue. So I dug deeper.
hmmmmm . . . political forces??? That is what I meant kinda' with controversy. I am sure it is more controversial regionally specific to locals too. I am looking into here in Cali seeing none in Diego, but discovered is offshore of Cali too.
I always like your confidence. I kind of think you may be at least partially right on the fracking. I see conflicting reports. It is worthy to note that one massive quake could have more impact that all of man.
I think part of the solution is wastewater reclaimation, as San Antonio is doing, so we have far less wastewater and much more water available for human use without having to draw down limited "fossil" water.
Wow, interesting question, Eric, and even more interesting answer. Thanks Lane. I did not know all of this!
This is so cool. I cheated. There are actually three huge problems. At first I thought this one did not make sense. I figured they take the water out and put it back in by using it on the ground. But that is not how it works. Well said friend.
