Oil companies + drought = no water for people, crops, or animals

Video: Rural Texas starts to recognize the reality of climate change. Oil companies take all their water for tracking, and the people in the towns turn on the spigots to find no water coming out. It's often been said that the big battle of the future, which most of us can't imagine or pay attention to, is going to be around water rights in places like Texas and California. This is a microcosm of what could happen around the country.
