The upcoming water wars.

Man, that is one smart group of U.S. generals:

In a report, 11 former military leaders “say global warming poses a serious threat to national security, as the US could be drawn into wars over water and other conflicts.

And when the U.S. starts running seriously low on fresh water, where do you think they're going to go looking for it? Think hard -- it'll come to you.

But don't worry, I'm sure that, when it comes to protecting Canada's water, Canadian PM Captain Charisma will be standing up for Canada. Or lying down for America. These days, I have more and more trouble telling those two apart.

ASK ... and ye shall receive.

Water war?
Already started.

A gallon of water weighs eight pounds. I don't know exactly how high the Rocky Mountains are but unless someone has a new, chearp energy source, moving Great Lakes water to California would be prohibnitively expensive.

Actually, in the Southwest's case, I believe some of the engineering geniuses are thinking about some gravity-fed system starting in the Columbia Icefields, which global warming (which doesn't exist) will be melting anyway. I think it's all down hill from there to the desert golf courses of Las Vegas and the mist-cooled outdoor patios of Scottsdale.
