Farmers——We need more Water???


In my eighty two years I have seen both floods and droughts, heat waves,  storms and hurricanes.: It’s the way of the world and has been with us since the beginning of time. When I hear Island farmers claim we must lift the ban on high capacity wells I shudder. These same farmers claim they will loose millions of dollars on their failed crops. I find this claim very strange, since when did a family farm make millions of dollars. From what I understand, family farms fed their families and traded what was left over. If a farm can make or lose millions of dollars it’s not a family farm, it’s part of a corporate farm industry. Where do these people think the water below us comes from? To replenish our aquifer we need rain, if we have no rain then the water table lowers. The concern we should all be worried about is the aquifer drying up. If that happens we won’t be worried about the size of potato’s. So to allow the Irving Corporation to pump our water is absolutely insane. Time these two old government party’s realized that, and stopped pandering to the Irving’s. If the island runs dry the Irving’s will be gone, and we will be left with the mess.
God Bless and keep reading.
