In fact, for the major earthquake scenereo, it has been suggested of tying up a nuclear carrier in the Port of Long Beach to do just this.
So you are suggesting the dry areas in our south set up nuclear powered desalination plants to provide water for their cities?!? Or maybe park a Nimitz class aircraft carrier off the coast of each big city?

I'm saying that the guys on the "manhatten project" all saw nuclear power as the savior of the world after WW2.
Most of the world has recognised this but the U.S. has been dragging it's feet and we have this oil and coal problem. We can't even solve the oil problem because of refinery building restrictions and of course because of the governmental paper work it is estimated if we go nuclear it will take ten years per plant.
You bypass all the restrictions and it only takes four years for the Navy to build a nuclear powered Cruiser or Carrier!
So the answer is yes if that's the only way we will see it. And why the heck not??

Just put it on the credit card. My kids will pay for it some how.

Hyp, does any part of your grand plan involve using less energy, even at the expense of some individual sacrifice?

Hep, if you want to ever replace oil, you are going to have to do something. I'm advocating nuclear because it is the cleanest and least expensive than "anything else" on the horizon. (Wind, solar, water.)
Now if your grandkids want to live in the best place in the world, it is definately going to cost them a lot. Nothing you are I can do to change this. Now if they want to seek alternatives, and I have checked and if I didn't have any kids or grandkids here and didn't want to worry about alternative power sources I'de definately head for "New Zealand,"
This country is the most desired place to live in the world because we have so much power!, (not speaking militarily) and I don't think you will find many folks who want to retrogress!

I know I am forced to cut down by shortsighted fools in my government, (not Happy!!!!!!!) by the way were also running out of fresh water, I reallly don't know which is worse letting the government decide or but it up as a vote to the morons who still vote. Lets build more homes even though we've reached our carrying capacity for water, energy, probably food if the fuel runs out to import it from New Zealand.
