You,re not going to drown in hell I don,t think,unless hell,s a lot wettter than I,ve been led to believe!:laughing7: Might run a tap from that pipeline down there!:laughing7:
Gee I might solve the heat situation. 🤔
Dampen the fires, all by myself.
What a legacy 👏
Steam would be the result, powering the world, renewable, and that could drive the water plants in pumping it to the dried out states.
Wow, problem solved, by just taking out those frigging water savers.
$300 a night and a man could produce a better stream.
Now on to the next task.🤣

Want water here ? ? ?
Just walk outside to the mailbox... ring your shirt out when you come back inside.

Want more than that ? ? ?

Walk back to mailbox and make a left... or a right... or keep walking straight ahead... eventually you will end up in some pond... creek... lake... retention pond... sinkhole... The Gulf Of Mexico or Atlantic ocean.

Hahaha you think Californians could swallow water from the Midwest? Our water is full of common sense and morals they simply wouldn't be able to acquire a taste for that. We'll keep our water over here thanks! Let them shrivel up in the desert
One of the most stupid comments I have seen here!

They could build a canal or pipelines and allow some of the water from the Mississippi River and Missouri River which floods often to empty into the Colorado River.

pipeline.png

The pipelines from the Mississippi River in Davenport, Iowa connecting to the headwaters of the Colorado River at the Rocky Mountain National Park. The pipeline will end in the Rocky Mountain National park. The water will drain into the headwaters of the Colorado river.
To help prevent flooding of the great Missouri river and the Big Sioux River a pipeline intake near Sioux City where the two great rivers meet, can run down to connect to the pipeline coming from Davenport as it passes through.


The amount of water that would have to be diverted from the Mississippi to support the states that are in question, would cause extreme environmental damage to the ecosystem in the delta at the Gulf of Mexico. The current erosion of the delta at the mouth is already causing serious damage to the delta island barriers.

I,ve a sister lives in Kalifornia.Much as we differ in opinions I don,t want to see her shrivel up. Plenty of water in Arkansas,figure out a way to get it there. it can be done.
It won't happen.
Where is the incentive ?
No money to be made doing that.
It would be considerably cheaper to build desalination plants for ocean water, albeit still very expensive.

Not really, when you think of all the flood waters at the end of winter from the north that cause billions of dollars of damage as well as lost lives. Mississippi river dumps 1.6 billion gallons of water a second into the gulf.

Cost of 7 billion is pretty low and the water could be used to irrigate more land en route to the colorado river.
