KANSAS FARMS RISK ETERNAL DROUGHT!!!
Mother Jones recently posted an EPIC screed detailing how Kansas farming focus on cattle and corn risk draining the High Plains Aquifer in western Kansas FOREVER.
The Real Reason Kansas Is Running Out of Water
"Like dot-com moguls in the '90s and real estate gurus in the 2000s, farmers in western Kansas are enjoying the fruits of a bubble: Their crop yields have been boosted by a gusher of soon-to-vanish irrigation water. That's the message of a new study by Kansas State University researchers. Drawing down their region's groundwater at more than six times the natural rate of recharge . . ."
In other words, this is just another way the corporate food chain is killing agriculture in the Midwest in a way that's almost as dangerous and unhealthy as the McRib.
