I don't see hydrogen production as having a major impact on drought area's.  Water is one of the more common items, we have oceans filled with it. Lake Superior alone has a greater volume than all the oil that has been found to date and is continually being replenished by the hundreds of feeder streams and major rivers around it.  Oil takes eons to produce but it rains every day somewhere lol.  Another area that is being explored in regards to hydrogen generation is called "heavy water" that shows promise toward being more friendly in regards to molecular division, a lot of interesting studies are being conducted in this field and I'm sure some facinating information will come out of it.

If water could be used as fuel, Americans would pay $4.00/gallon for it while an attendant pumped it into their tank. Read the numbers on how many people pay $1.00/pint ($8.00/gal) for water that is almost free out of the tap.

Actually, water shortages are not a joke in some areas.  There are predictions by experts that fresh water could become as big an issue as oil or even a bigger issue in the future.  This is likely to be a bigger issue in other parts of the world, but it could become a problem here in the USA too.

The southwest area of the United State has some of the largest population growth yet they have very little water.  Water is often pumped hundreds of miles to cities.  Las Vegas has lush green grass on boulevards and such, but they are in a desert.  All that grass is being irrigated with lots of water that has to be moved long distances.  The grass wouldn't grow naturally in their climate.

I suspect some areas of the USA will eventually have to go to water rationing if they don't find new sources for fresh water.  Fresh city/well water has traditionally been so plentiful and cheap that hardly anyone conserves water.  My water costs 77 cents per thousand gallons for the just the water plus a service fee and charges for sewer.  We all might have to start using water like we are boondocking in an RV.

Now, we do have plenty of salt water that could probably be used for hydrogen, but doesn't really help those of us that live vast distances from salt water.

    Some Southwest Florida municipalities are instituting strict restrictions on lawn watering (may also limit washing of vehicles) with stiff fines. Between sufferinng extended drought conditions and increasing demand with an ever increasing population, water is becoming a big concern. Pumping large amounts from the Florida aquifer has resulted in an increase in sinkholes, which some home insurance policies are now listing as an exemption.  Jack

And it's going to get worse jack, lol if the aquifer eventually fills, the state will be taxing everyone for the inground swimming pools.

A few more years of global warming and Las Vegas will be ocean front.
