RE: Who owns water? Experts debate pricing, infrastructure investment
The private-public debate stands at the center of the water crisis, particularly in the US. What arbiter is going to be charge with telling farmers what number of acres are "reasonable" based upon his water use? Are we truly going to outlaw crop production that doesn't make sense for this country because it can be more effeciently grown in another region of the world? Then erect barriers to product movement a la ethanol a la Brazil? We are going further down the path of "our" government telling us what is right for us?
