Eretz Yisrael Time

While there isn't much we can do about the rising oil prices and the upcoming oil crisis, but Israel's water problems were resolvable long ago.

Years ago a deal was hammered out with Turkey, for them to supply us with boatloads of water (shipped in supertankers just like oil). The infrastructure in Turkey was even built, and then... nothing. We had a year of good rain and the deal was abandoned.

Since then the ideas of water pipelines from Turkey were raised and abandoned.

The amounts of water we were talking about importing isn't tremendous in relation to our actual usage, but it certainly would have been enough to prevent the water crisis we are facing today.

Oh well. I guess out politicians had more important things to do with their time.

To the previous comment, nothing personal, but that's not the way we do things on this blog.

First ask before you post something commercial.

I thought I was asking. Forgive me. Is there another way to reach you?
