What do the Texans plan to do next, invade Michigan and steal all our waters with their GUNZ?

Love to see a public proposal for a federally-funded pipeline to carry lake water to Lubbock.

Since many of them think that Texas is the greatest state in the nation, I guess the citizens think they don’t have to worry about no stinking water resources. I guess if push comes to shove, they’ll find a way to turn oil into water.

On a more serious note, although they didn’t call attention to it, the Texas legislature passed a bill meant to address the problems associated with climate change and the state’s decreasing water resources in April of this year. Perry signed the bill into law. Of course, they’ll never mention the words climate change, dwindling water resources, and problem in the same sentence, but they know it’s happening. They tell the dodo-heads what they want to hear in order to keep their seats in the legislature, and for the purpose of fundraising.

“In a state whose Governor once prayed for rain, a miracle of climate adaptation legislation passed the House of Representatives recently - albeit without actually mentioning “climate change”. Nathanial Gronewold reports for EENews: “To a round of applause, 146 state legislators approved H.B. 4, which would finance a new fund to begin investing in new infrastructure and other projects by dipping into the state’s so-called rainy day fund. The $2 billion that would be taken from the rainy day fund for the water plan is just a down payment toward TWDB’s call for some $53 billion in spending over the next 40 years, $27 billion of which is expected to come directly from the state government.”

…and Utah, Nevada and Arizona are in similar spots. Last year Oklahoma and Texas met in the Supreme Court over acceptability to drinking water.
Yet, last time I drove through the great bassin desert, where there’s 5% humidity, if it rains it’ll evaporate before it hits the ground, and in July/August the temperature doesn’t drop below 90 degrees. At night. Yet in some town they still build a fucking golf course!
I didn’t understand that at all, but maybe that’s me…

If you don’t build a golf course, it means the UN has won.

Governor Snyder would totally agree.

The Canadians might not.

Actually, no, there is not plenty of “oil”, which is part o the problem. If there was plenty of petroleum then the industry wouldn’t be going to increasingly extreme measures to produce fossil fuels from resources previously thought unattractive.
