Flood Defense

Extreme FloodsFlood Defense is so important to the entire world right now. We must rev up our efforts to deal with both the rising sea levels and the increased precipitation resulting from climate change.

Our leaders need to take actions to prevent the floods and rising sea levels due to melting polar caps. We can pay for it now or we can pay for the clean up later.

It is high time we start to harness the water coming off the polar ice caps before it goes into the water and it is up to the world leaders to make this happen. We must spend the money now to gather this melting ice before the water does all the damage it will inevitably do, which will cost billions, in the end, to clean up.

Global warming isn’t going away and will only intensify, causing a rapid increase in rising sea levels.  How many storms can take place before the oceans, rivers and lakes become so polluted with debris and chemicals that they are a hazard to marine life and people alike?

With our all technology, we should be able to manage our waters better so that millions of people get the water they need, while others have too much.

Redirect the water or move the people!

We need to start breaking down the borders of the world and share the land.  As more and more land becomes locked in a pattern of flooding,  it will have to be abandoned.  Countries around the world need to absorb the displaced people on a larger scale.
