South Africa #WaterShortage Affects Energy Production

We recently highlighted how water scarcity is affecting energy production in Iraq.  We mentioned there how oil is a global resource and so the implications of less oil in Iraq causes problems worldwide, including in the US.  Now, we have a quick tidbit about water scarcity affecting energy in South Africa:
