You want jobs? I'll show you jobs. Here's one idea:
Billions of gallons of fresh water run off the mountains of Alaska unused by anyone. Divert a fraction of that runoff to a reservoir between the ranges in the Rocky Mountains. Make the project our generation's Hoover Dam or Tennessee Valley Authority.
A joint Canadian-United States-Mexico project would alleviate unemployment for all three nations, spur unimaginable growth and fill every depleting aquifer in North America, opening arid land for farm production in all three countries.
