Part XLV of the “EDEN America” Series

In Part XLIV of this series, “EDEN America” series, the headline was The Biden Years Can Be ‘Bold, Brave and Strong. Or Become a ‘Comedy of Errors’? published on Feb. 16, 2022.

This journalist wanted to write a follow-up article because California (where he is based) and the entire Western United States are experiencing a “megadrought.” But due to the looming Russian invasion of Ukraine (that might lead to World War III), he started a new series about the “Ukraine Crisis.”

“The American West has spent the last two decades in what scientists are now saying is the most-extreme megadrought in at least 1,200 years.” In a new study, published on Feb. 14, 2022, researchers noted likewise that human-caused climate change is a significant driver of the destructive conditions and offered a grim prognosis of even-drier decades lie ahead as reported by the Journal of the Earth Island Institute.

On Dec. 17, 2020, this column discussed How Mexican Bamboos Can Make Joe Biden a Genius.” Mr. Biden was then a president-elect. In that article, we also suggested to Mr. Biden that “all of the plumbing in the all the buildings, houses, restaurants, etc., will be designed to capture the water used in rinsing and be piped direct to the trees and bamboo plantations as ‘gray-irrigation water.’ The rest of the waste water will go to settling ponds and/or tanks for cleaning and recycling.”

While some readers liked the “gray-water proposal,” many-more of them asked for a better and mega source of fresh water. It is because public knowledge that the water levels of American aquifers, aqueducts, man-made reservoirs and even many of the countries rivers are running lower.

On Sept. 26, 2021, this column started the EDSA Evolution in North America series. Here is its Part I

This columnist eventually renamed the series as the “EDEN America.” It stood for “Economic Development Evolution in North America.

On Nov. 17, 2021, this column discussed how the Tennessee-based proposed projects under the domain name, www.tnsea.net, could save America’s aquifers and other inland bodies of water. It would also become the greatest achievements in the world of the 16-million strong Overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) and the 5-million Americans of Filipino descent. They have the excellent education, experience and empowerment-drive to make things happen in North America.

“But it seems that staffers in the White House, especially those of Filipino descent, never bothered to submit the links through the proper channel. They might have denied President Biden “defining moments” that could have bolstered his popularity poll numbers. And created the beginning of some doable remedies for pressing environmental problems for the United States and North America.”

Also in December 2021, this column wrote that the initiatives designed and proposed for the Mississippi (Old Man) River could be model projects for countries that have many rivers. This means that Tennessee and the other states that join the suggested consortium can export services, technology, equipment and other supplies to the countries that want to emulate the suggested proposals for the “Old-Man River” and all the downstream projects.

Some of my friends assured me that they sent to the Office of the President links to the articles that suggested among viable ideas like a Biden Back-to-Basics Doctrine. And even the greening of American-and-Mexican deserts. On Dec. 14, 2019, this writer posted in several Facebook Groups that “hopefully we can start the greening of the American deserts in the Western States by planting bamboo, and olive trees — starting in 2021 under a new President. And for states that have seashores, mangrove for their forests that are dying because the rising sea level has killed the trees and all vegetation in them.”

On Jan. 22, 2022, this column discussed how President Biden could “reinvent” the greening of American deserts and rivers.

But it seems that staffers in the White House, especially those of Filipino descent, never bothered to submit the links through the proper channel. They might have denied President Biden “defining moments” that could have bolstered his popularity poll numbers. And created the beginning of some doable remedies for pressing environmental problems for the United States and North America.

But it is not yet late. The Office of the POTUS can review the different suggestions, including how to do them. And finance them as “Public-and-Private Partnerships.” This column does not take “No” for an answer. Starting today and every Wednesday, this columnist will add more discussions for the “EDEN America” series. And devote Sundays to other topics such as the thread on the “Ukraine Crisis.”

Hopefully we can start the greening of the American deserts in the Western States by planting bamboo, and olive trees — starting in 2023.
