Melbourne is Still in a Drought

Since discovering the BOM weather radar, I've rarely seen red clouds which says a lot about the state of water supply in Melbourne. Yesterday somewhere in Melbourne, it was raining pretty heavily. Water they say will be the new oil, will there be wars over it?

Wars over water ? Kevin Costner in "Waterworld" ... art imitating life.

will there be war over water? well, a lot of the conflict around Israel and palestine is due to water. Israel needed the water in the ground under the west bank and invaded the west bank to get it, then kept the palestinians on a crippling water ration, which stirred up a lot of unrest :) or at least that's what I heard :)
