How soon until 10% of petro-chemical pipelines carry H2O?
The eastern and southern coasts are flooding, again. Hurricane season is just beginning.
In the spring, the Midwest will surge, uncontrollably.
In the summer and fall, the west will ignite. Western reservoirs are starved while hurricanes hit the eastern reservoirs gorged and overflowing their banks.
What can we do?
In anticipation of floods, we can siphon off reservoirs in the Midwest, East and South making room for the impending gush. We can send that surplus fresh water via pipelines to the west for processing into potable drinking water.
How do we provide enough water for this child's safe future--move it from the midwest, east and south to the west!
