*Ahemli’s Note: An interesting article. I remember years ago, being told that the next World War will be over water. The future has yet to tell if that is true; however, no one can dispute that lack of water is a huge problem in countries throughout the world. At times I have donated money towards agencies that state they are digging wells in foreign countries, and then I read investigative news reports that explain the waste happening in poorly built wells where it appears the donated funds are replenishing CEO’s wallets more so than creating wells. It will be interesting to see where this project goes. In the meantime, I plan on using this article as a talking point with friends who studied environmental situations throughout the Middle East. Hope you enjoy this post by Rowan Jacobsen.*
“Israel now gets 55 percent of its domestic water from desalination, and that has helped to turn one of the world’s driest countries into the unlikeliest of water giants.” Israel has more water than it needs.
