Slipknot last released an album in 2008, with “All Hope is Gone.” Their biggest hit was the 2004 Grammy-award winning track, “Before I Forget.” Gray was one of the co-founders of the band in 1995.

Drought may be a blessing. Maybe this will induce consideration of truly revolutionary technology. Pluvinergy produces water at $79 per acre foot, instead of $2,000. Pluvinergy produces water as a byproduct of energy production. What the $1 billion Carlsbad desalination plant produces in one day it produces in 22.2 minutes. Instead of taking huge amounts of electrical energy to run, Pluvinergy produces energy far below the cost of coal. Yes, it is only a hypothesis now, and yes it would cost about 12 times more than the desalination plant, but the benefit is far greater.
