JOBS TO BUILD A WATER PIPELINE FOR DROUGHTS AND FLOODS AND SAVE BILLIONS IN CROPS, LIVESTOCK, PROPERTY!

Messages Sent So Far
Building and maintaining such a pipeline would provide long term jobs for thousand of people, save millions in livestock, crop and property loss, not to mention human suffering.

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.

I'm so glad I found this site. I've been saying this for a few months now. Especially since I work in the oil refinerys and see all the PIPELINE EVERY WHERE FOR THAT TOXIC SHIT. But hey we can all go thirsty and keep the golf courses green right? **** that build pipeline networks for water all over. The California aquaduct is over 700 miles long and we can't build pipelines from say Washington state where all it ever does is rain? Like a lot of you have said pipelines resolve water demands and shortages, creating thousands of jobs, like forever jobs that will never go away. Oh and hello the earth is covered in water and here in California there's water everywhere. Let's make it happen.

Creating a network of pipelines to deliver water to California, Arizona, and Nevada is essential for our national economy. California is nearing a tipping point in which the amount of water available isn't sufficient to sustain its growing population. California has the largest economy in the US and by limiting its ability to grow and prosper, all of the US would suffer. Building the pipeline would create immediate construction jobs, provide tax revenue to the State selling its water, and secure our economic future. Let's get our elected officials to enact a plan that would benefit us all.

Water ducts have been used in advanced cultures throughout history. If you are willing to transport oil, why not water?

You watch. Alleged environmentalists will find a reason to complain about removing floodwater which threatens devastation in one part of the country and moving it to an area suffering from drought. Should be a good test of environmentalists.

Those employed would be paying taxes. An accidental water spill wouldn't contaminate anything. Cost shouldn't even be considered. No one on earth should suffer for lack of water.......and.....it would CHANGE THE WEATHER PATTERNS.

We landed on the moon, we built the Panama Canal, we built the Interstate Highway System, Hoover Dam, the TVA and thousands of schools, hospitals and parks under the CCC and the WPA during the Depression. We can do this! The Southwest US drought is a real crisis. We should stop all this no-tax penny pinching by our Koch billionaire controlled GOP congress and get to work on a massive water diversion project incorporating excess water from multiple Eastern, Northwestern states and Alaska, as an Emergency National Federal project under which the Federal supremacy clause which would trump any local and state rabble rousers. We need to divert water from other states that have too much water. Much of the water could be stored in reservoirs with dams to create hydroelectric sources of energy before further diversion to the ultimate destination. Yes it would be a large scale project but we already spend over a trillion a year on a bloated military that produces nothing. This is the type of large scale project this country needs to put people to work in useful productive jobs. Are we going to let China beat us when it comes to large scale projects? Are we done as a nation? No!! Let's Green the Southwest!!

You are saying the weather is going to bring water consent every year , don't relay on weather in the future desalination platforms off the coast powered by wind solar and water pumped to shore and tap into state water line and one to naciemento lake that supplies all of central valley that supply 45% of usa produce.

I WOULD RATHER SEE US SPEND MONEY FOR A WATER PIPELINE THAN TO SPEND THE MONEY FOR AN OIL PIPELINE. BOTH WOULD HELP WITH THE JOBS BUT I SEE THE WATER NEED NOW MORE THAN EVER. REMEMBER FOOD IS WHAT FEEDS US NOT OIL. CONGRESS GET YOU'RE HEADS OUT OF YOUR*****AND THINK OF THE BIGGER PICTURE NOT LINING YOUR POCKETS WITH OIL MONEY.
