...your town is in the wrong place. You should move, because you shouldn't expect me to help you pay for rebuilding a town that shouldn't exist in the first place.

Just like, oh, New Orleans, for instance?



Thats just stupid.. There is no place on earth safe from mother nature.... period....

That is true.
But there are small places that taxpayers (some subsidies as well, not sure for what exactly) are paying for. Like this other little town the ground has extremely toxic compound and people are dying there from it, but they refuse to leave!
Eventually the cost of them living there has exceeded the cost of them moving away.

To NthOther:
New Orleans? The stats are showing population decreasing anyway.. Where will you move 400 thousand people where it is save to say no future natural disasters will happen there. Cost of moving away from water supply? I guess that is where pipelines can come in, who will pay for that..

You say that like we're supposed to be hiding from her, or controlling her, which is what is causing the problem to begin with.

She isn't out to get us. But we have to stop fighting her in order to see that. If all you want to do is continue to dominate and manipulate, you shouldn't be surprised when she rebukes us.

Why don't we have pipelines for water? Scale.

Take the Keystone XL:

Phase III has capacity to deliver up to 700,000 barrels per day (110,000 m^3/d) to the Texas refineries.

That's a lot of capacity.

One of the lower per capita users is Santa Cruz, California (at least, in California), where the average resident uses 47 gallons per day and has a population of 94,887 according to this article. That works out to 4,459,689 gallons a day or 16,881 m^3/d.

The total population of California is something like 38.8 million; Santa Cruz, CA represents less than 0.25% of that. If all residents consumed the efficient Santa Cruz level of 47 gallons/day, the Keystone XL could support 618,275 people (with water instead of oil). That is, however, a mere 1.5% of the state's population.

Not unless you have the right kind of clouds to seed.

As to how it works in general. That would depend on who you ask. The cloud seeders who want your business say it works great. Meteorologists, not so much.

Cloud seeding has been going on for decades. The idea is to try to make a cloud rain that wouldn't have rained anyway. Pretty hard to tell for sure that it does that.

Here's just one company you can hire.

Im not talkimg about normal seasonal flooding im talking about when the Missouri or the Mississippi is breaking levees.

That is normal. The levees shouldn't be there.


Hmmmmm. Ok then. I guess people shouldnt live in towns and cities by the river then huh?

They should have a house that can float if it needs to.
Maybe some building standards could use a little modification.
I'm sure we have the technology to build floating houses. Tether them to the foundation and loosen the tethers when it floods.

What does scale mean in this case.

General add..
When you run a pipeline to a gold mining town.. benefits exceed costs. Like can you imagine AU dessert turning into a green farming place.. With the growing population.. Until people know having kids and water is a privilege..

Not my problem. I didn't build my house below sea level, next to the sea and a gigantic river delta.

Because that would be a dumb thing to do. Mother Nature isn't out to get us but she certainly doesn't suffer fools either.

Wow Im pretty sure you are the one saying we should hide from her. Dont live by rivers prone to flooding is what you said lol.

Should the people in the midwest not live there because its prone to tornados? How about people on the west coast because its prone to EQS? I guess we shouldnt live on the east coast with all the hurricanes either huh? Or damm even within 200 mile of Yellowstone because its prone to a volcanic eruption?

The Roman aqueducts did exactly that, delivered fresh stream water to cities.

Trouble is, the places that are "safe" are few and far between. Tornadoes. Hurricanes. Earthquakes. Volcanoes. It's always somethin'.

Yes. And in California. Quite a bit more sophisticated than the Romans'.

The trouble is, the snow ain't there. No snow. No water for the aquaducts.

In antarctica, reaserchers have houses that can walk..

Just seen a USA show where you move the house with truck.. A lady wanted to replace her old shack house on farm. So she has finally found a house she likes (this is just coincidence to the topic, but from a flood area) cost her $30000, moving it $80000 putting it back together $60000. ?!? why not just build a new one?

When you have 40 million people in a state that's mostly desert what do you expect to happen?

Our country is suffering the consequences of our idiocy.


If you are refering to California, only 15 - 20 % is actual desert. That doesn't really qualify as 'mostly desert'. There are other states that have a higher percentage of desert.
