And that balance is different for every individual.

Water's Economics as Muddy as Ever

Harvard Business Review

It's hard to put into words how dry and hot Texas was this past summer. Off the charts" is both figuratively and literally accurate: the data for the last 100 years shows a tight regression of temperature and water availability in Texas.except for the 2011 drought, which is far off the line (three degrees hotter with an inch less rainfall than any previous year).
