this is how you get Southerners.
Edited to say: man, piping water would be too prohibitively expensive for the quantities of water needed for the things that consume the vast majority of water, so who cares. All that's going to happen is that agricultural lobby is going to finally lose the artificially maintained water supply they kept as their states shriveled up and died, the price of food will go quite significantly up, almond futures will go bonanzas, and if you happen to own or lease farm operations in other parts of the country you'll do pretty damn good for yourself
