    Israel had a severe water shortage until recently. They have mastered economical large scale desalinization technology, and low use irrigation. I sense a tremendous marketing opportunity for them.

      It’s worth noting that the Israeli desalination technology utilizes low-cost natural gas, a commodity available to both the Chinese and to the perennially water-short US West.

    There is plenty of water in Siberia. It may be time for Peking to “rescue” its ethnic Chinese in Siberia a la Putin!
