Title says it all. I have to imagine with ever increasing populations of people worldwide coupled with climate change driven water extremes that water scarcity will create conflicts and wars. And probably already has.
In the case of say, the USA, what does the west do? Move inward and flee the wildfires? The irrigation-based water rights treaties or whatever between states like CA, NM, NV and AZ are being invoked as a series of “who gets water instead of whom”, a system I do not fully understand.
The situation seems dire to me.
