Stuff I wrote elsewhere: water problems are hard

From Tuesday’s newspaper, State water bills down to trickle:

New Mexico’s water problem is simple. We’re using more than we’ve got.

When it’s framed this way, the solutions are simple. Get more. Use less. Or, at the very least, stop using more every year.

But watching the 2013 New Mexico Legislature wrestle with these questions suggests that, while the concept might be simple, this is hard stuff.

  1. Common sense (if you have any) is easy to apply. Legislating is not subject to common sense, but rather to money and influence. Even the legislature can’t make it rain & snow, so therefore we suffer.
