    Oh, I'm sure the idea would be studied for at least that long, long enough for any drought to be over and probably a new one started.

    Now, maybe if it were sold as a redistribution of water....

    Great, now only if Obama was....I suspect we still won't see it happen.

    I can't even make a good faith attempt at solving what is a very real problem right now, drought, without snark.
    Oh lighten up Nancy....I was just answering like a liberal would, you should have understood that.

    Maybe if I call it "water inequality" it would get the attention of some, since it is mostly western states in drought.
    Drought that in some ways is made worse by liberal stupid laws.

    But wait, you haven't heard any talk so far about looming Eastern floods
    due to frozen rivers, lack of thaw, and record snow-pack east of the Mississippi .
    Nope, can't say as I have...In February

    How about first we study the laws, and regulations that are exacerbating the problem?

    You will see it happen before the end of the month.
    Mr. Obama needs to let his enviros cool their anger before the election, not that it will help.
    Enviros will sit out again as they did in 2010 with other factions of the DEM's loose tent .

    How about we have an Eisenhower Interstate system of water pipelines.
    I know that's too big of an idea for America to come together on NOW tho.
    The West Virginia Kanahwa Valley could certainly use some of this emergency water diversion from Eastern areas of high water .

    We were actually having a pretty good discussion here a few days ago, then you came in today.
    Since its all about liberals with you, maybe you should check the clientele out West getting hurt by this 40-year drought.
    If you've never been out West, you can't even imagine the scope of this disaster .

    Of course liberals make drought worse.
    How could I have missed that?

    That would figure with backward and "stuck in the mud" thinkers.
    Check out frozen rivers backed up with ice, almost zero THAW due to very cold Temps--backing up H2O, and record snow packs yet to drain.
    Since I'm a scientist, I think about these things called facts .

    Hmmm....awfully short on civility though.

    As I say, a long time ago isn't now.
    The incredible beauty of the landscape is worth at least one visit from me each year.
    And every visit is a fabulously learning one, since I'm a scientist.

    If your family lives out west, you already know how desperate the situation is.

    A water pipeline from south of the confluence of the Ohio/Mississippi all the way to Lake Mead with excess flood water is my idea,
    The pipeline could be giiving water along the way when needed.
    And, it would intersect with KXL.
    Just think, if a water pipeline spills, local water won't get contaminated .
