I haven't seen anywhere in the media that OSC came up with this idea several months ago.

It's... Not like it's a new idea. The Romans were big into it.

I personally want the American Southwest to run out of water, so the people stuck living there have to move somewhere not horrible.

Future Mad Max sequels will not have to spend as much on FX.

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

Maybe as a side effect the U.S. will start to take climate change slightly more seriously once California is a desolate wasteland.

I think California is going to do fine; it certainly has enough water to sustainably house the population.

Just not the agriculture.
