Drier, more desperate

I read that Boone Pickens is manipulating to get access to large amounts of water out on the Plains, intending to sell the precious stuff to parched Texans. Atlantic Cities has a recent piece on the drought here.
As Texas struggles through the worst single-year drought in its recorded history, the state is looking uneasily toward its future. Rainfall is down, groundwater sources are being depleted, and the state is growing. All these conditions combine to envision a not-so-distant future in which Texas won’t be able to meet its water needs, according to warnings in a draft of the 2012 state water plan.

Read the whole thing I thought the dipstick on your doom tank might be showing a little low.
