    And how is this? A secret invisible pipeline?

    The chinese aren't short of water, and only a tinfoil hat paranoid would believe that. especially considering they've built the 3 gorges damn on the Yangtze.

    The great Lakes don't have a shortage of water and its not like water won't go where it wants and come back at will. Like they're what...sneaking it out in suitcases and locking it up where it won't evaporate and come back as rainfall?

    Its a conspiracy i tell ya

    There are places that have water and places that do not. I am fortunate to live in a place that has water. I chose to move here. One of the considerations was the low water table and abundance of lakes and streams. There is plenty of firewood, so at a last resort, there is boiling. Can always collect rainwater.

    Water, especially for larger cities, will definitely be an issue in our lifetime. Aquifiers are being drawn down faster than they can recharge. Surface water is subject to a host of issues such as rainfall, contamination, recreation, conservation and agriculture to name a few.

    As cities grow they have to find more and more sources for potable water and unfortunately they are NOT going to get any cheaper to clean. Eventually it will be more cost effective to start using gray water for more non-potable water uses.

    Desalinization plants are a nice idea but are a huge energy hog and don't produce a large amount of water. The environmentalists typically fight any new plant anyhow so getting one built can be a chore.

    Thank you.

    China used to ship out water directly from the great lakes in vessels with HUGE holding tanks. After we stopped them from taking it directly as water, they starting shipping it through bottling companies as a product aka Nestle. Then we stopped Nestle from taking it directly from the Great Lakes. Then they set up shop off the way and added a pipeline to the Lakes. It IS happening.
