It’s no doggoned wonder we’re suffering drought. This news piece lets the cat out of the bag.
Black hole sucks in 140 trillion times the world’s oceans:
Seems there’s a moon of Saturn spewing water out into space faster than Saturn Moonians can catch it to make proper use of it. That whole Saturn ring fiasco is mainly chunks of ice out cluttering up what would otherwise be a nice, clean see-through piece of real estate with nothing in it to offend drought-stricken city people who have grass needs watering, golf courses needing to be kept green, swimming pools and hot-tubs to frolic in, and other important uses.
But that’s not the worst of it. A growing body of evidence argues Mars used to have plenty of water for golf courses and whatnot, but it got ripped off and wasted by parties unknown.
Investigators among the astronomical community recently discovered a black hole off a few hundred million light years away is doing something similar there.
They’ve been bragging for some while about creating ‘baby black holes’ in the super-colliders and at Sandia National Laboratory.
Another dramatic climb toward fusion conditions for Sandia Z accelerator:
Probably no connection to this little drought we’re suffering though.

However, maybe that’s also coming down the pike.
“We’re getting calls from investors from all across Asia who are interested in Idaho,” she said.
Idaho’s location, only another 45 minutes farther by air than Seattle from Asia, will open many opportunities, state and local officials said.
The state’s low cost for doing business will help, too.Fact is, the government debt is owned by every US citizen. When the nation is mortgaged the people who hold the note loaned it with some assurance they’d either get the money back, get paid back in kind, or they’d get concessions to their advantage to make the loaning of it worth doing.
There’s no indication that industrial zone in Idaho would put any US citizens back to work, but it might do a lot to put Chinese to work on US soil, so’s they don’t have to ship their products so far to US consumers who can’t manufacture their own products such as toasters, television sets, kids toys and shoes.
