  1. Laura, often when things are subsidized, there are opportunities for adventures into otherwise unstable conditions. Thus, through the cheaper costs of water, movement through land-use decisions onto otherwise marginal and often also fragile areas, can and does occur. As the true economic reality is later brought back into focus by reduction or withdrawal of subsidy, these marginal lands no longer enjoy the needed attention. To drain the last economic drop before cessation of tillage, the land’s remaining natural assets and soils are spent down and squeezed out. What may be left is badly damaged and abandoned. In this neglected, the land is left open to environmental forces, likely eroding and often seeing an increased albedo effect. This then modifies the local or even wider microclimate, thus exacerbating overall conditions. How many of these aquifers are actually fossil?
