Proposes pipeline

Makes Statement

Shatner proposes a water pipeline from the Pacific Northwest to California to solve the drought.

California’s in the midst of a 4-year-old drought. They tell us there’s a year’s supply of water left. If it doesn’t rain next year, what do 20 million people in the breadbasket of the world do? In a place that’s the fifth-largest GDP — if California were a country, it’d be fifth in line — we’re about to be arid! What do you do about it?..So I’m starting a Kickstarter campaign. I want $30 billion … to build a pipeline like the Alaska pipeline. Say, from Seattle — a place where there’s a lot of water. There’s too much water. How bad would it be to get a large, 4-foot pipeline, keep it above ground — because if it leaks, you’re irrigating!

Talk is Jericho interview

Interview

Shatner is a guest on Talk is Jericho to discuss wrestling, UFOs and compliments Jericho’s discipline as a wrestler.

I was curious about you. The effort and discipline that it takes to be an athlete and stay in shape. To overcome being hurt. There’s a whole area to being an athlete and then being a performer.

Elle Magazine interview

Interview

Shatner gives interview to Elle about any advice he would like to give his younger self if he could.

I’m gonna reveal something to you that’s going to come as a shock: If you’re a stupid young man, you’re usually a stupid old man. Most people, including myself, keep repeating the same mistakes.

William Shatner interview

Interview

Shatner is interviewed by Hall on The Arsenio Hall Show. They talk about how he forgets he is in front of the camera, how he saves a child from drowning and his stunt move he had to do with a wrestler.

I say ‘ You alright?’ then I realize not only is the kid drowning but the father is drowning. So now I have to make a decision.
