This has to be carried out
I think we should design these waterways based on physics. It should include pressure valves, different pipe sizes, the horizontal and vertical axis manipulation, manmade rivers and reservoirs and the entrance of water at the coastal areas. The idea is to force water to go into the easiest direction from the coastal areas and be distributed nationwide.
I think the time has come for this country to consider an interstate water pipe system. We are living in a time of unpredictable weather. While one state is faced with a drought another state is faced with flooding. The costs to the American people for these natural disasters are astronomical. And the fact is that most of these natural disasters can be prevented.
We need to consider a plan to create water pipe lines that expand from states to states, similar to the way we connect roads. In fact I think it would be good engineering to consider laying this pipeline parallel to the interstate roads at a distance that will prevent flooding if one of the pipes was to bust.
This water pipeline will be our greatest defense against droughts and floods due to too much rain or the lack of rain and can be very helpful in the management of flooding tides due to hurricanes.
I think this should be a Federal Program and should be paid for through Federal, State and Local taxes, because every government entity will benefit from this plan. I think it will reduce the cost for home insurance and make it possible to design homes that can actually survive hurricanes, because our main and perhaps only concern will be that the homes can stand against the wind, because the water will be distributed throughout our nation turning a flood in one area into needed water in another.
I do not think I have explain this plan any further than I have already, I am sure you have smart people who can figure out how to do this and I think just in the savings in insurance not to mention the lives that will no longer be destroyed like in New Orleans, Louisiana and now on the East Coast.
Mr. President this is not a luxury bill, this is a national necessity and may mean the difference between our nation’s world power status and the possibility of our nation being destroyed by nature. In this unpredictable world we have to implement man made devices that will protect us in a world of global warming.
