The french don't need to riot, they don't need fuel taxes, they have already done their part

But seperate them out from EU and from what I've read they are trying to meet their goals promised to the rest of the EU. Also this fuel tax increase the yellow jackets are so riled up about is not intended to help immediately, it's a long range strategy.

Are we sure that isn't cigarette smoke they're smelling.

That's a problem, it's not what they're smelling it's what they're measuring. If you live near an industrial operation that stinks and the government says they are in compliance, but another business that looks innocuous and is not in compliance, it's hard for laymen to accept their word.

However this whole yellow jacket revolt is over a fuel tax that would cost the average family $14 a month. Macron could put an end to it if he supplied better bread & circuses, or porn on TV.

Everybody else probably knew right away why the domestic water map looks a it does. It wasn't intuitive for this California native.
Many years ago I took my niece on a summer trip to visit family members we didn't get to see much.
At my cousin's place in Arkansas, I mentioned that their vegetable garden was looking a little poorly, with tomatoes and such seriously drooping, and asked if they knew why. "Well, it hasn't rained much this summer." "Why don't you water it?" "Do what?"
The concept was quite foreign to them.
Here is a map to compare with the one above:

Bruce's map includes well water and delivered water, but not rainfall.
If you are going to grow stuff in the highest consumption states, you can't rely on water falling on it.

It's the hippies growing all that married-ya-wanna using all that water.

There are... places where you don't ever have to irrigate? How bizarre.

Not only that, there are places where people don't grow shit outside.

We had a poor garden this year from too much rain.
