For our grandchildren … what happens when the aquifers dry up and the American Food Basket with it?? I hope the first to go is corn syrup gasoline (aka ethanol). On the plus side, water vapor is a green house gas. Oh well, unintended consequences.....Judging by all these different experiences you might want to clue us in as to where you plan to settle, next door or across the country. You didn't mention. In some parts of our country the aquifiers are receding pretty badly. Most people are blissfully unaware of it though.
