  •  How does this interact with corn/soy shortages (2+ / 0-)

    and feed lots (which I understand use tons of water)? I thought the drought had severely cut the corn & soy harvests (and wheat too). That should mean less stuff needing transportation.

    Any way you look at it, this is likely to mean much higher prices for grains and therefore for meat -- not only in the US but around the world.

    Tell me again why we allow the oil/gas companies to use as much water as they want for fracking?
