Sinking Tomatoes! Where Did the Farm Go?

Sinking Tomatoes! Where Did the Farm Go? | Custer C. Deocaris | Scoop.it
Globally, humans are consuming 3.5 times more groundwater than aquifers can support.

Much of the water extracted in the high-stress areas is used to irrigate farmland, and dry parts of North America and Asia fare the worst. Some parts of India, for instance, are using 54 times more water than the local aquifers can sustain.
