California has been in the midst of a drought for the last 4 years, and experts are saying that after the next year, there will be no water left at all.
While many people believe that Shatner's idea is pretty far-fetched, his idea has actually gained two million followers, and he has been advocating for his plan on every outlet of social media that's out there.
What's the big idea?
Shatner's plan is to have a pipeline irrigating water from Seattle into California. He has been featured on interviews, including one with Yahoo! Tech. He made statements such as, 'if Alaska can do it, why can't we?' and mentioned that if the pipeline were built above the ground, even if it leaked, it would still be doing its job.
Shatner is trying to raise $30 Billion for the cause, and even if he doesn't raise quite that much, he still plans to reach out to politicians to keep the idea going.
