If this guy can solve the trouble with the Tribbles (I personally don’t know how he wasn’t awarded a Nobel Prize for that), he can tackle on California’s drought.
California… the final frontier.
Well, the state’s frontier might be a desert (hopefully, a cool, Jawa-filled, Tattooine-like desert if I’d have my druthers) in its final condition if a solution isn’t found to its drought.
In a recent interview, William Shatner announced a plan to start a Kickstarter to raise $30 billion to help build a pipeline from Seattle down to Cali.
You hear that? Kickstarter isn’t just for raising money for your Facebook acquaintance’s lame web series about dating anymore!
This isn’t sh*t your dad says. This is sh*t a natural born leader says.
The hypothetical pipeline would run parallel to the Interstate 5, and bring rain water from Seattle, to Nevada’s Lake Mead, before traveling to California, Arizona, and Nevada.
The OG Captain Kirk was optimistic about the potential success of the campaign, even if it doesn’t reach its enormous, Doctor-Evil-sized amount of 30 billion dollars:
“If I don’t make 30 billion, I’ll give the money to a politician who says, ‘I’ll build it.’ Obviously, it’s to raise awareness that something more than just closing your tap … so why not a pipeline?”
I hope that when it comes to this conduit, that this Kickstarter can do it.
