Interesting….and apparently legal

Seems that enterprising Saudi Arabian dairy farms are buying entire square miles of Arizona desert and are using the acreage (and the wells on those acres) to grow hay for export to farms overseas….

The thing is, they are drying up the aquifers because these areas have no restrictions on the usage of these wells….unlimited water. Which is why they bought those particular farms.

This sort of profligate use of water wells drained the aquifers in their home countries, so now they are moving here…
