I mean...

There are water-intensive crops. Crops like strawberries and rice and cotton. I think cotton is water intensive.

And so countries that have lots of natural rainfall... It makes sense that those countries could grow water intensive crops without too much of an issue...

But when you hear of rivers drying up... Because farmers are growing rice or almonds... Or strawberries... That's silly.

Australia grows rice. I don't know why. They have no business growing rice. They have no business growing strawberries. Strawberries do well in the swampy waikato because there's lots of water laying about... Australia shouldn't be growing water-intensive crops that they can import. It makes no sense.

It's unfathomable that the taxation system allows local growth of such things to be short-term profitable.
