 650-Year Drought Triggered Ancient City's Abandonment

Image source

 

Opinion:

MR, Ed

The Demise of the Cantona:
Instead of maintaining, modernizing and constructing water resource infrastructure, the Cantona government used tax revenue for unnecessary expansion of nepotistic bureaucracies and extravagant perks for the government employed elite. To increase the yield of tax-revenue, the Cantona leaders and science-priests made unprovable claims of the sun-god’s threat of climate change gulling the people to allow more taxation and control their economy. When a long drought did eventually occur, the Cantona were not prepared and had to leave their proud city after a water mains broke and the water department couldn’t remember where the shutoff valve was while millions of gallons of clean water was wasted flooding the city.
