    ...there are lots of rivers out here in the west, albeit none as large as the colorado. and there are underground aquifers in a few western states, which are being depleted at an incredibly fast rate.

    it's not like we'd have as big a crisis, and maybe even have a manageable crisis, if we didn't put in lawns, if farmers here in the west used drip irrigation, if we found a better way to store water than open reservoirs, if a lot of other things changed...

    out here in the west, the watering of kentucky bluegrass lawns is tallied up in the agricultural use category. as far as i know, nobody ever harvests their lawns for dinner.
