That's excellent news. Desalination is critical, supremely critical. Why has DART not responded? Also, the latest earthquakes showing up are in
Asian waters, Ryuku Islands. Maybe the relief effort undertaken by the Navy battle group was secondary to getting out of the way (We'll know in a
couple of days, if there is a 9.0 in Asia with resulting enormous tidal waves), but that's just a random tangent.
Point of this post being, there are a large number of people in that region who will die without large scale desalination assistance. All groups
capable of providing this sort of technical assistance had damn well better respond in a timely fashion. Forget expensive, it's the right thing to
do. It's actually a much better gift than a million, or a billion dollars. If these people can't get their wells cleaned of salt water, no amount
of money will save their villages.
