Heat and droughts strike U.S.
" America's droughts are NOT impossible to resolve and I believe I have some possible solutions " !
" America began with REVOLUTIONARY ideas "
I spent my teen years partly in the Australian outback working as a jackaroo, (cowboy) There are few places more arid and drought affected than there. Droughts were and still are happening down under and present a terrible headache and economic problems for those who live off the land.
Well I used to daydream a lot as a youngster and one day, when watching the news about the droughts it suddenly dawned on me that there was, as is often the case, a very simple solution that just might work ! But when I tried to suggest it to others who also worked on the stations (ranches) no one took me seriously so I never mentioned it again and moved on.
I know many folk will lbe skeptical about my ideas and theories to remedy droughts but for the right $$$ I would be willing to share them and if it works America's drought problems might be resolved, I would be rich and a hero of sorts I suppose. If I could somehow accumulate enough $ to create prototype facilities based on my theories I would then attempt to prove that MISSION IMPOSSIBLE is a possibility ! Agricultural theories and methods have, to my knowledge, changed little over the generations, rather than having been passed on from father to son,etc. Times have changed and so has weather patterns which now present acute threats and problems to America's farmers and ultimately the nation's food supplies !
Over the centuries many individuals with brilliant ideas have been regarded as fools or insane. Genius is supposed to border on insanity as they say. Does that mean clever people are all nuts or are the funny farms full of smart folk ?...lol.
A perfect example is the ongoing theories battles between Leonardi Da Vinci and the catholic hierarchy, he was italy's greatest scientist and inventor,etc. but at the same time a severe threat to the religious dictators who absolutely forbid individual thought that distracted from their bible bashing brain washing indoctrinations from early childhood of the masses in order to maintain complete and uninterrupted and unquestionable exists in catholic countries today ! Da Vinci's theories about the Planets dimensions sent horror shockwaves throughout the church !
I am NOT expecting sudden calls from US Ambassadors or agricultural leaders,etc. because as I am NOT a recognized expert in the field, unless and until I placed the golden goose on their table...they wouldn't condescend to listen to me or take me seriously. Given America's drought plight...you would think and hope they would be desperately concerned enough to lend their ears to ANY new suggestions that might resolve the agricultural disasters now facing America...but we all know the creed and they ONLY stick with their own little status quo circles ! So because, even though I am from Wales originally
but love America I will...time permitting...try to find independent ways to raise enough capital to put my theories into reality and we'll see what happens from there !
