VDare's Brenda Walker, as usual breaking stories the corrupt Mexiphile MSM covers up for drug money, links to a story from the Boston Globe on the pending nationwide water crisis:
An epic drought in
Out of a series of causal factors, Walker touts one in particular as the primary explanation. See if you can guess which it is:
The government projects that at least 36 states will face water shortages within five years because of a combination of rising temperatures, drought, population growth, urban sprawl, waste and excess.
She has underlined it for the attentive reader.
So out of five factors (counting “waste and excess” together), all but one of which could be addressed by sensible environmental policies, it’s that other factor—population growth—that has been causing problems with the national water supply. Walker provides her analysis:
Droughts are a normal part of nature, and
’s lack of rain has been severe. But the MSM tends to underplay any negative effects of population growth, particularly when it is diverse. As a result, we don’t read that the state has doubled in population since 1960, from 4 million then to over 8 million counted in the 2000 Census. In other words, there has been much attention paid to the dwindling supply of water but little to increased demand from immigration-fueled population growth. Georgia
And if hypocritical electricity-using Al Gore or the NY Times tells you it’s global warming that’s melting Western snowpack instead of illegal immigration, you know where to tell them to stick it!
