    To be fair, Canada has a stake in them lakes, too, not just the US states of Wisconsin & Michigan.

    Simple science: Species exist where they can obtain resources like water. If people want water, they should live and set up lifestyles which can be supported by the available supply.

    It doesn’t make sense to mess up one area’s ecology to support another’s.

    Simple science. The human species is highly adaptable to many conditions. Rapid adaptation is the province of bacteria and humans, as well as certain other “life” forms such as viruses. We adapt using our brains. They adapt through evolutionary response to mortal stimuli. A priori, there is no terrestrial environment where we cannot live as a species. Maybe Antarctica. So this notion that we should only be living where the resources exist would have you believing that we never migrated out of Africa. And that is a view that’s not on,y obviously wrong, but is also not even remotely like simple science.

    If the majority of the nation’s food supply is produced in California and there isn’t enough water to do it, doesn’t anyone think we all have a stake in it? (I’m not in California.)

    Yes, humans can live almost anywhere. There are some places (like deserts) that will support only limited numbers of us. I think that we are reaching the limit in some areas.

    It’s all a question of money and technology. California is located on the Pacific. If they WANT to they can get any amount of water they like. Expensive, yes. Controversial, yes. But possible, surely. It’s just the status quo, the same-old, same-old holding them up. They will turn into a dust-bowl before the-powers-that-be finally give the green light to save the state. Maybe these powers would like to eliminate a very liberal state, who knows…

    There are a total of seven states that border the Great Lakes, not just two. Even with just the closest and largest Great Lake, Lake Superior there are three. And yes, in addition there is the nation of Canada and the sole Province of Ontario.
    .
    Independent of that correction there is the Great Lakes Compact prohibiting diversion of the Great Lakes to any region not within the watershed and the economic, geographic, techological and topographical issues. Not the least of which is the Rocky Mountains.
