But on the East Coast we can legitimately store large quantities of water and possibly in arid areas as well storing liquid hydrogen and oxygen. Have to see if this really pays off though as the energy and infrastructure costs could be prohibitive. An artificial aquifer might be the way to go.
Opposite to what is currently admited, you do not need so much quantity water ... water is really something you can be addicted.
And opposite to what think younger generations, there is a real advantage to live in communes, or at least villages ... it certainly solves the question of kids education, but it is also a quite natural way of living. I believe that we, human being, like wolfs, are adapted to live in pack (not a nice term in english) ... we used to live in tribes all along our history. Individual, separate, living is an egotic new approach, young generations are addicted to that egotistic approach ... afraid of "other"?
