    Re: Nestle bottled water operations spark protests amid California drought

    I'm going to make it a point to buy Nestle brand products next time I go shopping.

    Cuz I'm a dick like that.

    For the Christian riles, and the Aryan smiles and he weareth the Christian down;
    And the end of the fight is a tombstone white with the name of the late deceased,
    And the epitaph drear: “A Fool lies here who tried to hustle the East.”

    The problem is that you're trying to talk some sense into people who are certifiably insane. They've known for decades there isn't sufficient reservoir capacity to address this situation but have refused steadfastly to build 'em. So now they're mad at Nestle? Nestle didn't create this problem. They did. I don't want to see the state suffer, but unless they listen to some sensible advice and take steps to remedy the problem long term, there's little anybody can do for them. This drought will end eventually, but another will come at some point.

    Nestles is heinous, has been for decades, and it's well known. I don't buy their products, ever. That said, these protests are idiotic and even were they to get precisely what they want, it would have zero positive effect on the state's water situation.

    Well, I don't have a lot of faith in the California state government, but we can hope right?

    Funny they are targeting only bottled water. What about other beverages like soda, beer, etc.. that actually require more water to produce than the volume of the container they are sold in?
