United States’ citizens deserve adequate water security: Saudi Arabia expose
Saudi Arabia is unjustly purchasing U.S. water rights and U.S. land to grow cattle feed that is shipped back home. Saudi Arabia was legally permitted to buy these water rights despite an 20-year drought in the American Southwest. In Arizona alone, they can freely extract up to 2.3 million gallons of water a day. United States’ citizens deserve adequate water security. Unfortunately, this right is persistently unmet, depriving Americans of a healthy lifestyle.
