The people of New Mexico, we now know, have been dealing with droughts for literally thousands of years; maybe we can learn from them.
Being recently obsessed with helping OUR community to save our dwindling resource, I had water very much on my mind, as I spent time there.
One person told me about something the local newspaper there does. Apparently, every year, they publish the names, and the consumption of the biggest water users in the City. I have no idea whether this makes a difference to that community (example HERE). I do think that paying attention matters. We have talked, here, about how people can use Flume to watch their water consumption every day, every minute.
Better than public shaming; let's all do the right thing; let's all get our water consumption as low as we possibly can. Even IF we can, individually, afford to use more. The alternatives are not something any of us want.
Together, we can do what needs to be done!
