Not So Surprising Prediction No. 4,327

Maybe you remember the history lessons or some of the old westerns about ranchers versus sheepherders. The battles were over grass and access to water (e.g. "Heaven with a Gun" starring Glenn Ford).
Even today there are water battles as the southwest and southern west coast continue to drain their water sources. Lake Mead's level hasn't rebounded from a few years ago.

As global warming continues to 'heat up' (sorry about the pun), the water wars are going to get worse. Maybe there'll be a migration back to the Midwest and Northeast where, so far, there are still some decent sources of water. Minnesota with its 10,000 lakes, anyone?
