I know this is fanciful thinking but cant they find a way to desalinate the salt water ? Water from the ocean is expendible.

Its crazy water shortage is still a problem in some parts of the world, you can boil up some pee and have water right there.

A bag around a branch collects humidity, or the hole in the ground trick.

Do they just not know of these methods or is there another reason?

Desalinating large amounts of water takes large amounts of electricity. That isn't economical especially when your infrastructure depends on hydroelectric dams. If there was enough water to run the hydroelectric then you wouldn't have a water shortage in the first place.

They should use solar panels.

These sorts of events are only the beginning for a World on the verge of global catastrophe.

Things will only get worse as more problems are created than get solved.

There's far too much greed and stupidity running our planet!

Well...on the positive side, I guess they won't have to worry as much about the $755/box price of condoms any more...
Not too much "doing it" gonna be going on if everyone smells like lutefisk.

That is an entirely different country, but they are both part of South America.

There are ideas and blueprints for many ways to obtain drinking water from them [Antarctic icebergs]. Two appear quite practicable.

One envisages powerful tugboats getting smaller icebergs, up to 0.1 cu km, in tow. The catch must be wrapped in protective film for transportation to prevent the ice from thawing en route.

The other method envisages icebergs broken up just where they are found, to deliver granulated ice to the consumer by tankers.

The idea of getting fresh water from icebergs is rooted in history. The "Resolution" crew of legendary Captain James Cook collected 15 metric tons of water from thawing icebergs in 1773. At present, iceberg water is obtained in small amounts as an exotic drink.

It may become humanity's principal drink quite soon.

Global water consumption grew seven-fold in the 20th century, and shortages will eventually hit even the best-developed countries. Then, iceberg water from faraway Antarctic will appear economically expedient.

Antarctic To Cover Global Water Shortage

OPINION:

Since Brazil is a BRIC economy ...

it makes sense that Russia, China and India should take the lead here.

Those methods may sustain a single person on a survival level for a short period of time, as in just enough water to drink and not die, but they aren't even going to come close to having any effect whatsoever on overall water requirements. Without water industry shuts down, sanitation becomes a big issue, we use massive quantities of water per person even if you don't actually see it in your day-to-day life.

i don't know enough about treating sea water by desalination , yes i know it works and was there not a plant i think in Tenerife that when in operation actually helped change the climate in the area from a barren arid land into a more suitable condition for plant life , so in providing water to drink it actually helped the land also .

now having said all that my question is , is desalinated water safe to drink over a long period of time ,
because i am sure that the treatment would remove the minerals that we need for our health .

I just read this and just had to answer. I will not put anything else here. I do not need a response.

WE LIVE ON A PLANET THAT IS 3 FIFTHS WATER.
We're running out of water? Get a more firmer grip on reality.


How do you figure?

Does this look like 3/5 to you?



Did you know you can't water crops with or drink salt water?



To give you an idea out of all the water on earth only 1% is usable to humans.



How does your reality look now?

Please, don't be that guy.


A negative proof (known classically as appeal to ignorance) is a logical fallacy which takes the structure of:
X is true because there is no proof that X is false.

The people have known there were going to be problems but the government hid data because of the World Cup.

I listened to a special on NPR Wednesday that was all about this - the World Cup was HUGE for Brazil but it would've been in their best interests to focus on the water issue when signs of trouble began appearing. Not that those in power care... they will still get their water I'm sure.

Considering you can get condoms for free here, I'm... confused?


EDIT: ah, I see, you were talking about another country in South America... cause we are all the same, got it.

It's just that asking someone to "prove something is not ____" is silly.
