Texas Town Runs Dry

In a scene reminiscent of the plot of Rango, the water has been cut off in Kemp, a North Texas town of 1,150 people. The broiling heat and drought, fueled by billions of tons of carbon pollution, caused underground pipes to burst and lose millions of gallons. “The city never caught up with the demand during the oppressive Texas heat wave and shut off the water to residents for two days to replenish its two water towers.”
