Drought conditions covering 85 percent of Mexico, lakes and reservoirs drying up

Drought conditions are now covering 85 percent of Mexico in what is described as its worst in 30 years. As of Thursday, April 22, 2021, lakes and reservoirs have been reportedly drying up, including the country’s second-largest body of freshwater.

According to Claudia Sheinbaum, the mayor of Mexico City, the drought was the worst in three decades, and the problem is evident in lakes and reservoirs, which are now at critically low levels.

Nine million residents in the capital rely on reservoirs, including Villa Victoria and two others, which together are at 44 percent capacity. Most of the rest comes from wells within city limits, but the city’s own water table is plummeting, and leaky pipes waste much of what is brought into the area.

A child of the peace and antiWar movements, a Truther with self-diagnosed Opposition Defiance Disorder, formerly politically liberal tho now politically marooned, and Post-Doomer, on any issue, I trend to the conspiracy side, sort through the absurd, fantastical and insane, until I find firm ground usually located just the other side of the censorship firewall of propaganda and orthodoxy, dogma, and other either / or thinking.
