In Response to: In a Dry Country

I’m writing this from the Australian bush, and we are very dry here. The article was great and scary. I’m sending it to all my children in the United States. I sat on our veranda here many years ago and said we can do without oil, but we can’t survive without water. The United States should take a page from Australia’s playbook on methods of water conservation, e.g. water tanks to capture roof runoff.
