What drought? Nestle plans $35 million plant to bottle water in Phoenix
1. The plant is projected to fill 264 million half-liter bottles in its first year...
2. The plant is expected to create 40-50 jobs.
It stands to reason that if a whopping 40 to 50 jobs are created if 264 million half-liter bottles are filled each year, then 40 to 50 million jobs could be created if 264 trillion half-liter bottles are filled!
There are three things necessary for this plan to work.
1. We must not allow Nestle to simply build one fully automated mega-bottling plant that can fill 264 trillion half-liter bottles with just 40 to 50 workers. We must spread these plants out.
2. We must all drink a great deal more bottled water than we currently do. I know it won't be easy, but if each American pledges to drink a million bottles per year, then that would be more than sufficient.
3. Everyone needs to pee into Lake Mead. This is extremely important. We can't have that water go to waste, somehow finding its way back into our oceans through alternate paths. For if we do, there won't be enough water to fill the bottles.

Lake Mead Water Level Drops To Record Low As Drought Dries Up Colorado River Basin
The water level in Lake Mead — the United States’ largest reservoir that serves as a source of water for over 20 million people — has dropped to an all-time low, the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation, which manages the reservoir and the Hoover Dam, said Friday.
So, get drinkin' and get peein'! Hahaha! Sigh.
