WP: West’s historic drought stokes fears of water crisis

The Washington Post reports today on the front page of its news section that the water crisis is starting to scare some people in California.

Now, across California’s vital agricultural belt, nervousness over the state’s epic drought has given way to alarm. Streams and lakes have long since shriveled up in many parts of the state, and now the aquifers — always a backup source during the region’s periodic droughts — are being pumped away at rates that scientists say are both historic and unsustainable.

When I hear words like “unsustainable” I think back to Inevitable.  What also makes me think of my constitutional thriller novel is the fact that there is apparently zero political response to this problem.  Now is the time, before its too late, but nothing is being done.  California – and the rest of the West – is just crossing its fingers and waiting for rain.  When it doesn’t come, will the government react as they did in the prologue of Inevitable?  Check it out for free at the Kindle store by clicking here and then selecting “Send Sample Now” on the right hand side.

I could not put this story down. The premise is realistic and plausible. The characters are well drawn with good dynamics between them. The plot line has a good flow that is easy to read and follow. Lots of action and suspense. We make decisions that we feel are right at the time. But then later, there comes a time when things need to be changed. I received this from the author for an honest review. No compensation involved. Outstanding!!! Will recommend to any and all.

And another:

This was an intellectually amazing book. It makes you stop and think about real-world problems rather than the monopoly of dystopian challenges.

 

It was a very interesting read with an economic spin on it.

 

The author does a beautiful job of writing the story. You don’t know how many potentially great books I’ve read that were only dismal because of the writing or grammar. The characters and story was relatable, and that is not easy to do. Having relatable characters and a relatable story are probably on entirely different galaxies. Anyone can make a relatable character, but the feeling of connecting with the story itself is not something I come across often.

 

So, kudos to you, Mr. Nace. You’ve imposed the near impossible as approachable and given it a stability that others can relate to while also creating witty, fun characters.

 

Texas Dealing with Water Shortage

Wichita Falls, Texas looks to be going down the Inevitable path where water is no long as abundant as necessary.  In fact, the town is going to great lengths to preserve their dwindling water supply.

The city of Wichita Falls, Texas, may soon become the first in the country where half of the drinking water comes directly from wastewater.

Yes, that includes water from toilets.

Inevitable takes place after the country has failed in every attempt to preserve its water supply.  As one of the main characters laments:

There were so many efforts to avoid the hard decision that had to be made, but none of them worked. People tried to dam rivers to preserve water, then they undammed them. They tried to let the market raise the price of water, but it was a necessity that people would pay anything for. Then limits were placed on consumption of water per person, but there were always criminals able to get around that. Forced abortions were never politically popular enough, but it was in that discussion that people realized the intelligent answer to the problem.

That inevitable decision may be coming to Texas shortly.
