Disobey Your Thirst
"Let's not rebuild this weird system that wastes water, wastes energy, and compromises human health."G: Well, you can't tell people where to move.RG: People are going to move and you need to figure out what to do about it. I have no illusion about that. You could ask, Well, what about the entire population policy of this country? We have a population policy that gives tax incentives to people with more kids, for example. That doesn't make any sense. Government should take away that tax break. I would favor incentives for people to limit the number of kids they have. I would make birth control readily available. Population planning, that's way beyond the scope of the book, of course, but population is a huge issue.G: What else can the government do?RG: The first thing the federal government needs to do is to have a much stronger data-collections system. Right now we are spending about $10 million a year on groundwater. Groundwater constitutes one-quarter of the nation's water supply and that's all we're spending to figure how much water there is, who is using it, and where it is? Take Georgia, for example. The first thing Georgia should do is say, No new wells without a permit. Think of the water supply as a giant milk-shake glass and each demand on the supply as a straw in the glass. Georgia and many other states permit a limitless number of straws in the same glass. That's just a recipe for disaster.G: What can the average person do?RG: Conservation, definitely. We use water in some surprising ways-even something as simple as washing fruits and vegetables in the kitchen sink or using the food disposal. I also think we need to figure out a better way to dispose of human waste than flushing it down the toilet.
