I had mentioned in Vox Populi last week that I had drafted a proposal for a Climate Change damage mitigation project, proposing a National Water Management Agency. The inspiration behind this document was to focus on what we could do now to act in a concrete way on Climate Change ASAP in the U.S.. We can’t greatly reduce global carbon emissions in the near future that are worsening the destruction of Climate Change but we can act relatively quickly to reduce the damage it is doing to our cities, farms, economy, and most importantly, the lives of Americans.
The central proposal here is to institute a national water management system that would help protect against flooding, reduce droughts, and increase the amount of potable water in the U.S. (which has been declining steadily and represents a real danger for the future).
Due to the kind interest at Vox in viewing it, here it is. I’m very interested in receiving comments, critiques, and suggestions on it so please don’t hesitate. Thanks!
