Seventh Bad Year
Israel is entering the rainy season and - no rain. The experts say that the winter will be dry. It will be our seventh year of drought. No one dares to say out loudly that the climate has changed for good. Or for bad. We in Israel are drinking desalted sea water and growing crops with recycled wastewater. We take care of the Palestinians, but what the other neighbors will do I dont know.
