"...give up meat..."
Stopped reading right there.
Non-starter to any conversation regarding ecology or environmentalism. Water conversation and smart agriculture are noble pursuits, but sorry, don't care about your diet preferences, and the current efforts underway to retrofit the goal of eliminating meat from the diets of everyone back to some plausible justification .
It's interesting how "cow farts are causing the polar ice caps to melt!!" and "we're running out of ze water!" and diverse other red herring arguments are brought to bear on this subject.
I have no problem with vegetarianism or veganism, but militant variations of those people, that believe it's their role to change everyone else's diets, are quite irritating. Something tells me when WW3 or the zombie apocalypse or the next asteroid impact make everything go pear-shaped, the limp noodles who were trying to use subterfuge to force society into a vegetarian lifestyle will be at the wrong end of the cannibal train. That would be a karmic end to such a devious pursuit.

What will you do when cops arrive to pour cement down your well after the local government caught you drilling for water past 1000ft?
