Illustration Friday-- Enough




This article kept popping to mind as I thought about what I wanted to do for this week's theme.

Seems like climate changes are creating a "feast or famine" situation with water worldwide-- rising sea levels threaten millions in coastal areas, while others watch crops die as fossil water table levels drop, alongside fossil fuel levels. Worse, food production now competes with biofuel production in many areas.

It's hard to imagine the human suffering behind all these statistics-- and to think about what it means for our collective future.

I kept coming back to the old real estate saw-- Location, location, location.

Wouldn't it be wonderful if we could grab a few dozen bergs from those calving glaciers at the poles, and dump them in the Sahara?

That would refill some ancient aquifers...
