Joking aside, the statement that we have waterparks and it's all fine is exactly why we are in this situation. Sure, there are also waterparks in the desert, golf courses and amusement parks. One could also make the claim that the fish restaurants are full and they even have enough fish in the desert thanks to fish farms, so if the ocean is empty won't really bother us.

I'm not sure how a right-wing American lobbying organisation knows more about Iberian peninsula ecology than the water companies and town councils from that area but each to their own.

Yeah right😉The AEI is an avid opponent of environmental regulation, and its members have repeatedly denied the science on climate change. It has received millions in funding from infamous fossil fuel magnates, the Koch brothers, over the years.

Perry previously authored an article for the AEI titled “18 examples of the spectacularly wrong predictions made around 1970 when the ‘green holy day’ (aka Earth Day) started”, in which he claimed the “hype, hysteria and spectacularly wrong apocalyptic predictions will continue, promoted by the ‘environmental grievance hustlers’”.


Perry has also tweeted that
, and
an http://www.theblaze.com/news/2017/07/09/bombshell-climate-change-study-could-totally-dismantle-the-claim-humans-are-causing-global-warming from former Fox News host Glen Beck’s The Blaze outlet that dubiously declared a new study “could totally dismantle the claim humans are causing global warming”.

A good non technical explanation of desalination and so difficult.

And therein les the rub. If you were a farmer of any foodstuff and had to pay say 1 euro 20 for every cu metre of water used in irrigation then the cost of food would rocket. Ground water essentially free as capital outlay and replacement parts like new pump comes out of “ tax liability”.

What does the government do? I suspect most farmers will be voting PP ( vox).

So looking forward to climate change deniers taking charge of things over the next few summers. They'll have to make good on their pre-election promises of rainbows, unicorns, and water for all.

June extremes suggest parts of climate system are reaching tipping points

June 2023 may be remembered as the start of a big change in the climate system, with many key global indicators flashing red warning lights amid signs that some systems are tipping toward a new state from which they may not recover.

Spain drying up?

The inhabitants of Zaragoza might be forgiven for disputing that!

The recent storms does not mean Spain is no longer dry. These are cases where intense amounts of water falls out of the sky and cannot be absorbed by the ground.
Valencia-
Zaragoza-


Urbanisation without a decent infrastructure will not help either. When was the last time you saw, here in Spain, new drainage larger pipes being laid to replace undersized old one? When have you seen any cleaning of the old ones, to prevent blockages?
