Hey! There's a new poll (McFood?) to the right --->
...part of the solution to water problems
...have nothing to do with water problems
...the reason for water problems

I agree that politicians are involved, and I think that they are part of the problem:
They benefit from prolonging it, due to lobbying for them to intervene.
They do not understand it, because it's too complicated for anyone to understand -- like any complex problem.
Bottom Line: Politicians should delegate more authority to more people, so that they can act in their own interest on water policy issues. The results will be better, and I won't blame the politicians!
