We all have heard rumors about "someday" --- we would not have enough water ... BUT we always thought that it would be way off in the distant future. To even suggest that it could be SOON, is just unbelievable. And I don't think we can possibly be prepared for it --- the crop failures, the weather extremes, loss of tourism, massive loss of income (& jobs), is horrifying.NO WONDER we are sending a voyage to MARS, only a "one way trip" - they are trying out a possible "escape from oblivion" scenario? from our Earth?
