One reader notes:
Your readership has not had to confront "the end of abundance" issue. You may be addressing the first billion while the extreme effects of the situation are closer to the next billion and closest to the bottom of the pyramid of poverty. Those folks are probably not reading your blog.Although this observation may be true in terms of your water service, I think that you will understand a good example of the end of abundance when you see it. So do a good job!
