JOBS TO BUILD A WATER PIPELINE FOR DROUGHTS AND FLOODS AND SAVE BILLIONS IN CROPS, LIVESTOCK, PROPERTY!Messages Sent So Far
The state climatologist for Texas says the record drought of 2011 could be only the beginning of a dry spell that could last until 2020. What if this drought affects the entire Southwest and Western US?
There is an urgent need to conduct water from states suffering flooding from too much rain or snow melt to provide water to states suffering drought causing losses of entire farms, crops, and farm animals and to provide jobs to build these pipelines.
We could develop a network of interstate high-volume water pipe-lines, so water could be transmitted from areas that have too much (recently the Northeast) to areas of drought. They could be installed with relatively little disruption by flowing the right-of-ways of various Interstate Highways and/or rail lines.
Since water is non-toxic, occasional small leaks would not damage the environment. To install the system would create much-needed jobs in the US. The system could be built gradually over years to spread out the cost and job-supply. Pipe-line flow could be reversed if climate changes dictate.
Building and maintaining this pipeline would provide long term jobs for thousand of people, save millions in livestock, crop and property loss, not to mention human suffering.
