Phoenix, AZ is sinking 1/4 in. every year due to excessive groundwater pumping. Where else does this occur? When will the Ogalla aquifier empty?
Can our excessive agriculture in the corn and grain belt continue if we don't have the groundwater to support it-let alone the fertilizer and fuel?
We are shipping our grain, soy, and corn to world markets, along with all that water. Will water be more important than fuel in the next 10 years?
