    IMHO a badly underestimated factor in water use awareness in the US - faced with the prospect of converting 33 inches of rain into acre-feet, a percentage of that into cubic feet of aquifer recharge, and a calculation from that of how many head of cattle at 19 gallons @ day (in the heat) one can run on an irrigated vs non-irrigated 17 acre pasture with a drilled and dedicated well for the stock tank, the brain just gives up and turns to baseball.

    So why can't anybody on my team pitch in Yankee Stadium?

    I have no sympathy for California. 12 SONGS size NPPs could provide all their water needs thru distillation of sea water.
