I was recently chatting to a man who works in Africa (sorry, can't remember which country). He advises local people on water usage. Turns out he part-owns a property on a golf course in Iberia. He didn't know where the irrigation water came from.

This is the email that signers of the petition have received;

"A big Thankyou! to everyone who signed this petition, our small drop of awareness in an ocean of ignorance and greed. Water is our most important natural resource and shouldn't be taken for granted."

Onwards and upwards..............
