Submission + - 1000 Boat Armada to save Thailand (

stub667 writes: For the last several days, Thailand has been using an innovative strategy to drain flood waters from the inundated country. A fleet of 1000 boats are moored yet running their engines to push the water out to sea. From an earlier report in The Nation from Oct 11th "[Science & Technology Minister] Plodprasop said that this voluntary base project would help drain water three times faster, from two knots to six knots, and prevent floodwater from pouring into Bangkok City"
Brilliance or lunacy?
