    Fair enough in point #1. Now go to #2. They don’t have extra water.

    Don't worry i'm old enough to believe everything you wrote Kevin....I know most of these things were talking about now have been discussed before....I'm from the old school that you have to keep working on these problems and not giving up.

    Columbia River has lots of water....It just depends how bad someone wanted to move water south and how much money was involved...Politicians and big money didn't have a problem getting water sent south in California.

    Whatever happened to the idea of floating icebergs down from the Artic?

    That's water that technically is already in the ocean. Nobody would miss it.

    Sink some tow lines into the middle then pull it down to Oakland. Put it in a dry dock and pump out the salt water. Then just let it melt and collect the fresh water.

    I can see new iceberg "ranching" jobs being created in the high Artic where the icebergs are calved. Breaking off bergs into manageable sizes. Then there's branding and corralling them until pickup time. Plus a new market for selling and re-selling icebergs.

    Hmmmm...... this is something Elon Musk should tackle.

    How many million or billion is Idaho proposing to spend to "take down" (More like bypass) four dams on the Snake? The Snake/ Columbia dams are not about water retention but power generation. They are no longer the cheapest source of electricity in the region due to continual licensing law suits.

    $33.5B???

    About as much chance of @JuvieCoot taking the covid vaccine or @marsh-mello voting for Trump in 2024 or @Woody71 shooting 7 greenheads.
