Damn the Dam

Just conserve.

Metro Atlanta could use up to one-third less water instead of spending millions of dollars on new reservoirs, according to a report released Wednesday by a national river advocacy group.

Washington-based American Rivers offers nine solutions to the region’s water crisis in its report, “Hidden Reservoir: Why Water Efficiency Is the Best Solution for the Southeast.” The recommendations include raising the price of water and replacing old plumbing fixtures with water-efficient brands.

“Atlanta and the entire Southeast are sitting on an enormous and forgotten water supply. It’s in our kitchens, our laundry rooms, our bathrooms,” American Rivers President Rebecca Wodder said Wednesday at a sparsely attended news conference at the state Capitol.

    “recommendations include raising the price of water…”

    “That makes alot of sense & we would all have lower water bills, too.”

    What exactly did I miss between these two statements?

    Icarus,

    You didn’t miss anything, it’s all part of the well known 3 part plan.

    1) Raise the price of water
    3) Save lots of money

    You should study more.

    Oh, Come on Eff, the underpants gnomes are the brilliant minds behind the Obama Energy Plan:

    Phase I) “Invest” in new technologies that somehow supercede the known laws of physics,

    Phase II)

    Phase III) Profit with all the new jobs that are created.
