hydros fear

We’re a scant 10% of the way into 2009, and indications of widespread concerns with freshwater supply are clearly evident.  A front page open thread on Daily Kos links to a brief roundup in the Albequerque Journal of the current roster of global water woes.

Fears of rising death toll as parched Australia burns. Drought emergency in China, spurring an uptick in wheat futures. Kenya. Texas. And of course, out here in California.

I am anticipating water to be a recurring theme in global news. No further editorialization on my part is necessary.
