SCCA Presentation – Self-Sufficient Communities and Personal Responsibility

Climate change and yes, drought are big issues here on the mountain as well as elsewhere through the South this summer.  What to do about it?  You could:
1.  Wring your hands
2.  Pray for rain
3.  Complain to the government about lack of planning
4.  Sue a neighboring community or State over water rights
5.  Take matters into your own hands and become self-sufficient.

My choices are #2 and #5.  I spoke to the South Cumberland Community Association on how individuals and communities can become water self-sustaining.  We are doing it with a 7,500 gallon rainwater catchment system.
