Most recently, I read in Seed Magazine that millions of people in Chinese are facing a severe shortage of drinking water.
While that is relatively far away, I would call attention to the fact that this is one of the driest years on record in California. Locally, the City of Santa Cruz has already enacted water use restriction to begin on May 1.
BEIJING (AFP)—Nearly 10 million people across southern and southwestern China are suffering from drinking water shortages due to a fierce drought.
A lack of rainfall has affected water supplies for 9.8 million people and 9.1 million head of livestock, the Beijing Morning Post said.
Both figures had doubled since early March, it said.
Where this will end, I do not know. All I know is that Bob Dylan was right.
