The Earth , our place where ninety seven percent stands out of salt water . three percent as they say is drinkable.
Each year we read the head lines from WFF to National Geographic and the horrific news that by 2020 scarce of drinking water.



Climate Change Poses Existential Water Risks
We often hear it said that climate change is too abstract to win the support needed to effectively combat it.

But the primary way we will experience climate change is through the water cycle – through droughts, floods, depleted rivers, shrinking reservoirs, dried-out soils, melting glaciers, loss of snowpack and overall shortages of water to grow our food and supply our cities.

NG




Water Scarcity
As a result, some 1.1 billion people worldwide lack access to water, and a total of 2.7 billion find water scarce for at least one month of the year. Inadequate sanitation is also a problem for 2.4 billion people—they are exposed to diseases, such as cholera and typhoid fever, and other water-borne illnesses. Two million people, mostly children, die each year from diarrheal diseases alone.

Why fresh water shortages will cause the next great global crisis
Water is the driving force of all nature, Leonardo da Vinci claimed. Unfortunately for our planet, supplies are now running dry – at an alarming rate.


As our bodies , animals and plants are very dependable of fresh drinkable water. We may ask ourselves what will happen if water becomes so scarce that the prizes of water reach so high its not affordable to get yourself a fresh glass of water.

Well all these terrifying news headlines could be something of the past. And IMO its solved by a company who worked from the University of Delft in producing desalination systems that provides complete reverse osmosis systems driven by solar, wind and/or wave energy to enable affordable fresh water up to 3329 gpd from seawater .

and they say that they can increase this production if needed .

This video shows how it works


I only hope they make it affordable for everyone in the world ,so that the poor people also can benefit from this system..
So maybe 2020 can be be extended until al the saltwater has been desolved..

With all of the Glaciers world wide disappearing, it is only natural that fresh inland water is less and less and natural or manmade reservoirs don't refill themselves like they used to.

a reply to: TinfoilTPTrue , but sometimes I really losing track of all the contradiction within the science community. on Monday the pole caps are melting and on Friday they tell us that they have grown extensionally...

But they never tell you that since the end of the last ice age the glaciers have been receding on an inevitable path of disappearance that has nothing to do with erect homosapiens.

We just need to burn more hydrogen.

Somehow I can't believe that all drinking water disappears into thin air at some point.
Maybe just like they think about mars it drains down the soil into underground rivers just like they last found in China? it has to go somewhere ..

User error. People need to read beyond headlines.

The Arctic ice cap is melting, a lot, quickly. Part of the Antarctic ice cap is melting, a lit, quickly. Part of it is growing. What's definitely increasing is Antarctic sea ice.

Solving the fresh water " problem" is simple. Distill sea water. Distillation is mentioned in the Bible. It's the purest form of water available to mankind. All impurities are left behind, producing only clean, potable, water. And it removes sediments from the body (including the pineal gland).

That and the fracking that is sending the water deeper into the earth where it cannot return to the sky.

You are comparing some pipsqueak fracking to multiple trillions tons glaciers all around the globe?

Burning Hydrogen produces water as a by product. Contamination of the burn would mess with catalysis and so would not be optimal, therefore, the process is a good source of highly pure water.

Fusion produces Helium, not water.

Everyone in the world could have food and fresh water if governments made helping people a priority instead of hurting them. There are so many overlapping political interests, vested interests, etc. that this would probably work for individuals who can afford it.

Edit: You could also setup a wave-powered desalinization plant as an idea, so it still works when there is no sun

This freshwater crisis is nonsense. It's only a crisis because control of freshwater means control of money and population. Graphene is the solution. But don't let Nestle hear you talking about it!

I think there is a fresh water crisis in third world countries like Africa...and polluted countries like China & Mexico...the rest of the world I assume are doing okay with water...except California where water is becoming a scarce resource

Just curious about your water as well. Do you have a well or spring or collect rainwater and filter it? So many parts of the world are polluted enough ways to make water you find in nature non-potable these days.

There's no earth water scarcity per se. There are incompetent politicians, who orchestrate water crises on purpose such as the one which is ongoing right now in Rome.

The Italian government since the 90s led by Serbia bomber Massimo D'Alema insisted on having an Agenda-19. That's is a return to the 19th century, before any workers rights, and when the only rights were for the EUropean oligarchy and nobility. This has led to technological decay of the whole country and even acquaducts. The presently operational acquaducts were built by Mussolini and have rusted through time. None were properly replaced.
Moreover wheather manipulation for psychological warfare and for the enforcement of the faulty beliefs in Global Warming and other nonsense which are run by the Italian and EU militaries are negativaly contributing with the current water crisis.

There isn't a water shortage here...

Most of it is being stored in bottles and tanks to drive up the price and sell at a premium when the time is right.

...That # falls from the sky you know?, go get creative, re-learn how to think and go get some...

Stupid.
