This was extremely interesting. Do you find any other places where increasing temperatures from climate change are causing similar depletions of water?

Thanks, Harold. Yes, groundwater depletion, unfortunately, is happening all over the world, on nearly every continent. On the North China Plain, on the India/Pakistan border, and throughout the Middle East, to name a few other regions. There are great challenges ahead for peaceable management of this critical resource.
