Trading Water

There are some places in the United States that do not have much water of their own. These places have become popular with people, and people in general require water, so those places have tried to get extra water from other places.

In the past, we here in Michigan have resisted attempts by others to take our water. All they wanted to give us was money in exchange for our water. I’m not saying it’s as easy as I make it sound, but we can get money from anywhere. Our water is not worth just money.

I have a counter-proposal: You can take our Great Lakes water, for a fee of course, but you also have to take our mosquitoes and some of our humidity.

I don’t want all of our humidity gone, because completely dry air is bad. We would have to buy a lot more lotion and swamp coolers. But we’ll pipe some humidity and as many mosquitoes as we can over to you. You can’t take all the benefits of water without also taking some of the problems.

Maybe I should add Asian Carp as something you must also take, just as a bargaining chip.

Anything else we should try to trade?

There was no water for the congregation, and they assembled themselves against Moses and Aaron.
The people thus contended with Moses and spoke, saying, “ If only we had perished when our brothers perished before the Lord!
Why then have you brought the Lord’s assembly into this wilderness, for us and our beasts to die here?

Numbers 20:2-4
