My dear friend told me about this article about the High Plains Aquifer. The ultra brief summary is that there is a BIG decrease in water and farmers aren't going to get what they used to from the wells.
However, in this article, the farmers that they were talking to seemed to be fighting for whatever is left or keep doing what they are doing in a lesser capacity.
There needs to be a different solution than that.
Instead of battling each other, why can't we find an alternative route?
Think of it as driving down the highway and there's a gigantic traffic jam. Instead of sitting in that jam for hours wasting your time and money, why not get off on the nearest exit and go a different way?
One solution that I support is Aquaponics. I talked about Growing Power, an urban farm in Milwaukee (and other cities), and how they are destroying food deserts. Why couldn't we all have some form of aquaponics? My friend was able to make one in her kitchen and grow some plants, so why can't we focus on this rather than sticking in a jam that will only end badly?
Though it's not the fanciest, it works really well!!
Think about it. Talk about it. Spread the word. The first step is education!
