      It takes hundreds of years for groundwater to replenish. We are experiencing problems right now.

        Sure, I never said anything about that, only commenting against the hyperbole that there will be “no tomorrow” when places run out.

        There will still be tomorrows, people will just move elsewhere like they’ve done for thousands of years.

          Problem is, there will be less and less elsewheres where people can still live within a hundred years or so.

            Yes, I commented on that. They will go elsewhere, and they will have tomorrow. It’s weird y’all are downvoting this like it’s personal to you.

          Thousands of years ago didn’t have desalination nor electricity… there’s a reason why they moved to fresh water inland.and before you jump there: desalination requires a fuck load of electricity that impacts with other issues.

          Read a book.

      …says the guy who clearly doesn’t understand the geologic water cycle.

        Sir?

        I see you posting and I’m still waiting for your proof or reasoning behind thinking there will be no tomorrow when some places lose ground water.

        You guys are all smug af with your downvotes, but got absolutely nothing for facts beyond your provocative hyperbole.

        Keep in mind I never said losing ground water wouldn’t suck and/or be catastrophic, only looking for some proof it will be “the end of tomorrow” as the upvoted dude with his provocative words stated so definitively.

        I keep getting told to read a book or that I know nothing of history or geology, yet all of human history proves me fucking right so far, so I’ma need literally any scrap of evidence from fucking anyone who has something better than a shitty opinion alongside some clicks of a down arrow.
