It is true. There are more irrigation wells operating every year. Could global warming be fueling the need for it? I think the answer is yes. They're going to be going the crops, no matter what. And it is a moral dilemma, even among farmers using drinking water and fresh water from aquifers to grow crops to feed cattle and make fuel. Land prices are up to record highs. This surge in the car market fuels growth and investment in the Midwest. It's a double-edged sword.
