And if that weren't enough, some city planners and house buyers are absolutely insane.

  • Building cities in the middle of the desert? Check!
  • Expecting green grass everywhere despite this? Check!
  • Building over a dozen golf courses in the desert who needs tons of water? Check!
  • Consuming 3 times the average water due to all this? Check!

And of course due to all this, they are using more water than they can provide. So what's their plan? Conserve water by pricing it higher since it's among the cheapest in the country? Nope! Trying to build a pipeline from the already low Colorado river basin to leech billions of cubic meters of water from there every year that the basin already doesn't have anymore? Absolutely!
