United States’ citizens deserve adequate water security: Saudi Arabia expose
Saudi Arabia has been unjustly purchasing U.S. water rights and U.S. land to grow cattle feed that is shipped back home. Saudi Arabia was legally permitted to buy these water rights and land despite an 20-year drought in the American Southwest. In Arizona alone, they can freely extract up to 2.3 million gallons of water a day disregarding the drought and the needs of communities and other farmers.
United States’ citizens deserve adequate water supplies and security. Unfortunately, this right is persistently unmet by unjust laws that are depriving many Americans of a healthy lifestyle.
As Maine faces climate change — clean energy solutions are in the works
As the world experiences drastic environmental disruption due to climate change, the increasing lack of fresh water is causing conflicts around the globe. But there is hope. Real solutions are already making a difference across the country and world. Maine has large land wind farms, community solar power projects and is developing cutting edge offshore floating wind platforms at the University of Maine, with the potential to export clean energy for the Eastern seaboard. Innovation, research and development grants and American ingenuity just might see the state take a lead in offshore wind development.
