Using fossil water is not localized to Texas. It happens all over the world. A prime example outside the US is north Africa. Most water used outside of the area around the coast and along rivers is old, very old. In Lybia 40,000 year old water has transformed the society but the resulting growth portends disaster in the future when water runs out. But the solutions are also at hand. Solar-powered water purification systems can produce a lot of water but it is costly. One day, the cost of water will probably exceed that of oil.It is why all major oil companies (Exxon, Shell, BP,etc.) are investing heavily in buying water rights where they are available and buying patents for new desalination technology.
If it rained in North Africa, they would. What do you think dams are for? The oldest dam in the world is in this area.
