    When in doubt pray to the water Goddess. Yes, that seems extremely reliable and fail proof. If my sarcasm isn't clear, that seems like a stupid idea that probably won't work

    They gotta figure out how to use ocean water. We're surrounded by water we cannot use for consumption, but I hope we can at least filter it to use it for factory use.

    Taiwan sadly isn't the only island suffering from water shortage last year wasn't comfortable place for parts of the Caribbean my home Trinidad and Tobago essentially implemented water rationing. Even though we are getting plenty of rain now Meteorologists are saying dry seasons are going to get dryer and the rainy season will become more unpredictable.
    Goodluck to Taiwan best thing island states can do is invest in Desalination Plants but not only is it expensive there are the environmental concerns.

    Tsai spends all the money on outdated weapon purchases and now have problem with water shortages. I heard the Taiwanese people are addicted to pornhub. No more energy to work.
