What's your big idea for the World?
#1
My big idea is water. Places like the California and Texas deserts are actually very fertile, get a lot of sun and have long growing seasons. They just don't have water.

Desalination is now only 2X what reservoir water costs, but there's a limited amount of reservoir water and unlimited ocean water. I don't have a clue how much it would cost to transport the water but the Romans did it a couple of thousand years ago.

These desert areas have immense solar potential for cheap energy and the land is really cheap so this would offset some of the costs of desalination and transporting the water.

Throughout human history we have settled in the easiest places for life to survive. We now have the technology to live where it's a little harder to survive and we have less impact and let nature reclaim some of the other areas.
