The North American Water and Power Alliance is a proposal from the 1960's that seeks a continental approach to water management for the American
Continent. It would take the fresh water run-off from Alaska and Canada, redirect the flow down the Rocky Mountain Trench, through the Great American
Desert all the way down to Mexico.
It would also allow for increased navigable water transportation throughout North America, expand our food production capabilities massively, and
create millions of jobs.
While I'm a libertarian and don't usually believe in government doing things, this particular project has caught my eye. As a resident of Tennessee,
I've seen how much truly amazing good the TVA has done for our area and the entire nation - NAWAPA would be 100x the effect.
This will have disastrous effects in the long term all you have to do is look at other areas of the world where they diverted water only for another
region to have less water. Short term fixes for a short sighted people.
