The biggest problem id look for is that when the USA is short of food we chop exports and raise the prices so high only the first world will be eating.
If it means anything the crops here where I am are doing excellent so the farmers here will be making a fortune which is nice for the local economy. I'm located smack in the middle of that southernmost white bow on the MN/WI border however.

Who knows, in 20 years instead of massive pipelines to move oil, we might need massive pipelines to move water from the inundated states to the dehydrated ones.

Now under the assumption that this is a global warming thing:
I guess if you guys want to get all foamed up about it that's all well and good, but human nature being what it is until we have world wide civilization collapse, nothing we are willing to do will really make a dent in the environmental issues so I'm not really going to get worked up about it, I simply act in ways so as not to make things worse.

Work on this first:
Stop having more than 2 kids.

This thread is probably going to need to end up in the political forum in short order.

This idea was actually "floated" at the federal government level over one decade ago. Not sure why it didn't catch.

But now it is truly needed. Not just opinion here, just the facts... During the depression - many types of federal government projects were started; mostly as a way to get people back to work, One of those projects was the Hoover Dam.

After reading this please feel welcome to google map the Hoover Dam, and also how the water levels are receiding so rapidly.

Yes the government really does need a type of nationwide water grid; perhaps even one eventually expanded to cover most of North america. And guess how many jobs this would mean?

If nothing is done - and this looks like it might be the trend that nothing is in fact done, then... It will be very costly for each and every american. We'll eventually be looking at items such as foced water rationing and even mass migration patterns for millions.

Perhaps this one should be posed to both candidates for office in dc??
