Water Resource Questions
By Mel Burke, Jerome, Arizona

We live in the desert and water resources are scarce. Sometimes the water we have is not used wisely.

Which Way Goes Desire

Mel Burke

When we talk about the availability of water resources, we assume 0.5+ acre foot per person.

As our population increases, the question for Arizona is whether our sexual desire will overcome our thirst.

That's an interesting question.

The disturbing complexity is that thirst will kill us and sex, or the lack of it, will make life unpleasant.

There's a finite limit to Arizona's water...a finite limit to population hasn't been found.

If you need it spelled out, a growing population will have effects on water use.

You can pick up sex at the local grocery store. Wanna quible about water?
