Just to start off a discussion on water, the master resource for agriculture and life, just as oil is the master resource for our economy and current civilization.

Video showing global groundwater, short-term and long-term acquisition/depletion over the past several years, based on data collected by the GRACE project: Twin orbiting satellites that take a complete snapshot of the entire Earth's surface every month.

water supply

Interesting link.   I'm an ex-pat living near Toronto.  I'm looking to relocate back to the Northeastern US.  Both Ontario and the Northeast look good compared to alternatives for water.   One concern I have regarding ground water for the Northeast is potential contamination due to fracking.  My current thoughts are to stay out of NY and move to New England.

A map of all the rivers in the United States

A map of all the rivers in the United States, and nothing else

Just how many rivers are there in the United States? Based on this map, a hell of a lot more than you might think.
