Screw oil; worry about water. There was a terrific essay by Mikhail Gorbachev last year in Civilization (RIP, damn shame, good magazine) about the coming water crisis, and now we’re in a second year of poor harvests worldwide. And even though I’m aghast at how we waste the stuff, I’m still from farm stock and see other sides of the issue. Either way, poor folk are screwed and rich folk get richer in these situations. (Wait, isn’t that also the “oil crisis” in a nutshell? Hmm.)
