In Paul Hawkens' Natural Capitalism I learned of aerated faucets; faucets that combine the water with 50% oxygen, which obviously reduces water usage by a whopping 50%. The devices can also be used in showers and dishwashers. And the oxygenated water enhances the water's capacity to clean.

So, in light of the fact that water is a national security interest--and becoming less and less abundant all the time--let's implement a plan whereby all unionized plumbers are hired by the fed to install these devices all over America in every single device possible. Additionally, these plumbers would be available for any residence or business who need a leak fixed. Because of course as things stand now, most individuals and businesses ignore leaks because it costs too much to call a plumber.

So not only would this plan put oodles of plumbers to work, but it would put money in the pockets of the companies that make the aerated faucets. And of course both they and the plumbers would have much money to spend in the economy. And of course everyone would have more money to spend due to their reduced water bills.

Apply the same principle to hire electricians to install light and motions sensors in every building in America.

Are you listening, Obama and Congress? This isn't rocket science.
