    We think the reason is evil dictators and Monarchies. They just happen to be in power. The real problem is a combination of global warming, poverty, unequal income distribution, drought ( see aforementioned global warming), and scarce resources, including land, especially in Israel and the occupied territories.

      water will be the new oil.  This has been my worldview since at least 1984 as I have personally witnessed water shortages in FL and GA where it was once plentiful

      •  I couldn't agree more. We will have water wars. (1+ / 0-)

        Few folks realize that we are running out of ground water. Both the Southwest and the Middle East are expected to experience worsening drought as the panet warms. Last year was just the tip of the iceberg. Once the Arctic melts, most likely in the next few years, our weather patterns are going to change, mostly for the worse. Agriculture in the USA is going to be hit hard. Looking at what the world might be like in the next few decades makes me glad to be old. I feel so sad for humanity. The looming suffering is going to be unimaginable.
