Bill Richardson, governor of New Mexico and Democratic presidential candidate, wants to create “dialog” between water-rich northern-tier states and the increasingly desperate and thirsty southwest saying “states like Wisconsin are awash in water.”
“Dialog,” eh? Sounds like a naked attempt at a water grab to me, another of those mad schemes to divert water from the Great Lakes. Ya, Chicago will really sign on for that.
Tell you what southwest, start by banning golf courses and lush lawns in deserts, then maybe the northern tier will think you’re serious about water and not just trying to steal it from them.
Welcome to the nationwide water wars. Or maybe the next civil war. The water-rich North vs. the water-poor South. Seriously.
