    Re: Rhine River level

    Why not use rail?

    I imagine Rhine boat skippers were complaining -- and filing incident-reports -- about the water and the wind delaying payload delivery schedules, even back in Roman times.

    You can't find a place to park your car from June to Sept, inclusive. All the small quaint villages are designed for donkeys.

    There is almost unlimited sunlight in California, and an ocean.

    Put Solar panels everywhere, make electricity, desalinate water.
