Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Across the West, farmers and city water consumers are locked in a perennial battle over water rights - one that the cities are slowly winning.


In the south-east, the crisis is immediate - and may be alleviated at any moment by the arrival of the tropical storm season. In Georgia, where the driest spring on record followed closely on the heels of a devastating frost, farmers are afraid they might lose anywhere from half to two-thirds of crops such as melons and the state's celebrated peaches. Many cities are restricting lawn sprinklers to one hour per day - and some places one hour only every other day.

The victory of lifestyle over food.

Can the last politician to go out the revolving door please turn the lights off?
