    the Canadians are kinda stingy a-boot their water.

    Orly, it isn't evidence just because you downloaded it from the internet.

    •  Canada will need to send their water north (0+ / 0-)

      The Great White North is remarkably dry; a precipitation map of Canada shows a lot of it isn't much wetter than the Mountain West (not quite as dry as the Southwest).  10 inches of snow is only about 1 inch of rain ... and you need at least 20 inches even for highly restrictive and low-yield dryland farming.  Once Canada's snow turns into rain, they'll have a water crisis of their own unless it starts raining more up there.

      Something's wrong when the bad guys are the utopian ones.
