The United States of America, like most modern nations, is a country accelerating towards agricultural collapse followed by mass starvation. At so many levels, its present-day patterns of consumption, resource extraction and environmental exploitation are physically unsustainable. But one area that merits special attention due to its imminent collapse is the subject of water security.
America has historically possessed plenty of water to grow enough crops to feed not only its own citizens but even export substantial quantities of grain to the rest of the world.
