And not a drop to drink

Atlanta's got a few months of water left. And then what?

The very real possibility that a major American city will run out of water looms. And outside of some pretty stressed bureaucrats in Georgia, no on seems to care.

Maybe we will when the city, out of necessity, becomes as empty as the reservoirs.

Maybe we will when the government, some government, decides that water from your reservoir should be sent South.

Here in Middletown, the Common Council voted this year to allow a major private company to drill a well into an important river aquifer.

As I've said before. The next civil war will be fought over water.

Thanks to firedoglake, for pointing out the Salon story.
