While many are quick to blame crops that require excessive irrigation, or environmental policies that divert billions of gallons of water because of a small fish, it’s not the whole story.

One such community, with less than 20,000 people,...

However this isn't the case, and to show that I will bring up a thread I made a while back demanding evidence from Creationists to prove Creationism similar to how Creationists constantly try to demand evidence for Evolution. I have posted the thread in question below in case you want to familiarize yourself with it. In this thread I made the mistake of lumping all Creationists...

Hi. Although this is what we all thought would happen I'm merely verifying the idea that Greek banks are now preparing a plan to raid the deposits to the tune of at least 30% on deposits of over €8000.
