All my life it’s been pumped into my head that “there’s no water” and that “we must conserve water”. So it was rather strange that after 27 years, all of a sudden, “we must conserve water for only 3 years.”
Why is the National Water Authority encouraging a scary thought, such as understanding that there’s only one water source in Israel, when in fact, there are two more aquifers, larger than the Kineret lake, mentioned in their website [Hebrew]?
Let’s see if I got this right: In case of “emergency” (=threat real or imagined?) my government can take the law into it’s own hands and stop all production, supply or consumption of water; give quicky license for whatever nutjob says they’ve got a solution to aforementioned “emergency”; steal water from private wells; force me to use government-deemed “efficient” and “frugal” “accessories”; infiltrate and close off sources of water and impose fines and jail time; give the Prime Minister all legislative powers on water; and last but not least change water prices.
