Dried And True


The above image is Valley of Thirst

Today's song is Have You Ever Seen The Rain? by Creedence Clearwater Revival, released in 1970.

The world as a whole is using up its natural resources at an alarming rate. The reduction of available fresh water is just one of the issues of the 21st century. We in the United States face water shortages.

Residents of southern California experience the drying up of water supplies. Sooner or later really tough measures will appear to attempt to deal with the brewing crisis. Real solutions will take a long time to implement. There will be actions to attempt to mitigate the situations, instead of solving them. This happens quite frequently and as a result, the problems will be perpetuated.

Like most social problems, nothing is really done to tackle the issue until a severe crisis emerges. We are fast approaching that time when action surely will be taken.

Unfortunately, it will be politicians that attempt to solve the problems. They are the worst people to solve problems, because they usually only think of how their efforts will benefit themselves, not benefit those they represent.
