I have posted on water in the past as I think water issues are going to get more serious. Having said that, I was looking at a really interesting story this morning.
There was horrendous flooding in the praries this year and I saw this story about a billboard demanding Canadians keep their d@mn water. It just seems like such a strange outlet for anger, it got my attention.
I read some of the comments, one of which was to the effect, get pro-active and do something to protect yourself, like how Winnipeg built the Red River Floodway. Looking at the history of this thing, well, it has been used about half the years since it was built.
To me that seems like a lot of water that isn't wanted but could be wanted somewhere else, but at the very least ought to be directed away from other cities. Too bad it is totally unfeasible to get that water to California and the other desert states that could really use it.
