This is an excellent example of what, tragically, is about to take place in one form or another in places all around the globe. It’s a direct result of the disinformation campaigns the fossil fuels companies have launched and perpetuated, sewing doubt as to the validity of the theory of human-caused climate change and the importance of mitigating it.

Here we have four million people whose water rations are now 13 gallons/day.  Next: poor sanitation, then disease, then suffering and death.

We either take this seriously, or we sentence millions of people to levels of misery never before seen on Earth.
