Soylent Green Water for California Drought?

California is in a drought State of Emergency, which directed state officials to take all necessary actions to prepare for water shortages.

So what are commercial business owners doing in reaction to the drought?!

Not sure why, but an old movie came to mind. Soylent Green is a 1973 American science fiction film directed by Richard Fleischer and starring Charlton Heston, Leigh Taylor-Young, and Edward G. Robinson.

The plot is that the 20th century’s industrialization left the world permanently overcrowded, polluted and stagnant by the turn of the 21st century.

In 2022, New York City is depicted with over 40 million people. Housing is dilapidated and overcrowded and homeless people fill the streets. Only a few “lucky” ones with jobs are only barely scraping by. Food and other necessities are scarce.

The population survives on rations produced by the Soylent Corporation, whose newest product is Soylent Green. Supposedly, the “high-energy plankton” wafer was more nutritious and palatable than its previous versions.

The one catch…Soylent Green is people!

What are we drinking? What are we bathing in?

When I was a kid hot water was sometimes a little cloudy. But never appeared as a…solid?!

Guess which restaurant…you’ll be shocked.
