We Need A Movie Trailer Depicting Sea's Demise. Using Computer-Generated Imaging ( CGI ), We alert the public to the various threats associated with a dried-up lake bed. We demonstrate how this can be averted by plumbing and siphoning from The Gulf of California. We earn the trust and cooperation of the one million citizens of Mexicali (They'll get Asthma too). We portray a national treasure, which it will become (When The Gulf connection is made).
We need access to The New River, to place two 25-inch pipes in its Bed. This is the 67-mile route to the Sea. DWP claims a lien on that water, plans to clean it, and send it up to The Coachella Valley. We need a lawyer to go into federal court to challenge that lien.
