If farmers "paid" the same rates as urban dwellers, there would be no cotton, hay, alfalfa or mellons grown in California.

3. Points 2 and 3 are more important than the bs that is fed to people by the politicians that you should conserve water, recycle water and so forth.
That still doesn't mean that the entire planet will run out of water. Is anyone even reading my posts? lol
