Word is OCP expects ~$300 million in revenue annually for the first three years alone.
Quote from: Pohjolas Daughter on November 28, 2022, 05:30:37 AMThis boggles the mind. It's a long read but very interesting and illuminating I think. It's about what is happening in Arizona to one area's water supply, but the implications, rules in effect and what is being allowed to happen is mind-boggling.https://www.cnn.com/2022/11/05/us/arizona-water-foreign-owned-farms-climate/index.htmlPD
Quote from: Spotted Horses on November 28, 2022, 07:49:52 AMThe article describes a real and extremely serious problem, the depletion of aquifers by agricultural users who pump water out much faster than it is naturally replenished. However, I would take issue with the xenophobic slant to the article, blaming it on foreign owned farms, and particularly farms owned by companies based in Arab states. U.S. growers are equally egregious in depletion of ground water, especially now that Colorado River flow is becoming more an more inadequate to meet needs for agriculture and urban populations.

Quote from: Pohjolas Daughter on November 28, 2022, 09:50:43 AM...We have to change the way we grow things (let alone what we grow to begin with) and how we manage our natural resources--including water...and now.
Quote from: JBS on November 28, 2022, 06:12:28 PMActually, you do own oil/gas/minerals if it's found under land you own. Oil/gas leases from the US government come about because oil/gas was found under public lands. But if Exxon discovers oil under your back yard, it has to buy the land or pay you for the right to pump.In real life, this latter point can get complicated because if there's oil under your back yard it's almost certain to be under the backyards of many of your neighbors; the same pool of oil will be under multiple plots of land, and pumping it out via your back yard means pumping out the oil under their back yards: it's all from the same source.
