You are going to screw up the ecosystem man lets just kill the idea while we have a chance
(the purpose of spitting ideas out is to figure how to come up with ways to make it work using new theories and scientific laws instead of relying soley on the dictates of old and known science. However there is nothing against using modern and past methods to proove and justify our new theories)
The amount of energy invested into powering pumping stations will make the theory invalid and useless.
This is a scientific analysis of a revolutionary theory. Please refrain from brining politics in at all, this is not even the proper forum.
You right wing ultra neo-con liberal athiest conservative evangelist your kidn of people are the reason for so and so problem which is why we always have to foot the bill yada yadda
The nation's economic well-being depends on the enormous quantities of oil moved safely, efficiently and at low cost by oil pipelines each day. This national infrastructure represents a $31 billion investment in a 200,000 mile long network of technology that is essential to American interests.
Of the more than 7,500 desalination plants in operation worldwide, 60% are located in the Middle East. The world's largest plant in Saudi Arabia produces 128 MGD of desalted water. In contrast, 12% of the world's capacity is produced in the Americas, with most of the plants located in the Caribbean and Florida. To date, only a limited number of desalination plants have been built along the California coast, primarily because the cost of desalination is generally higher than the costs of other water supply alternatives available in California (e.g., water transfers and groundwater pumping). However, as drought conditions occur and concern over water availability increases, desalination projects are being proposed at numerous locations in the state.
Desalination is a process that removes dissolved minerals (including but not limited to salt) from seawater, brackish water, or treated wastewater. A number of technologies have been developed for desalination, including reverse osmosis (RO), distillation, electro dialysis, and vacuum freezing. Two of these technologies, RO and distillation, are being considered by municipalities, water districts, and private companies for development of seawater desalination in California. These methods are described below.
What's most impressive about the Solar Ark is that it is one of the world's biggest solar energy generation systems, and was designed by imagining a giant ark. It boasts a length of 315 meters, and a height of 37 meters. It is installed with 5,046 solar battery panels, giving it a maximum generation capacity of 630 kW equivalent to the annual power consumption of 200 homes.

deserts are deserts because of the climate
if we changed them, then there would be global repurcussions
some other places may become deserts
so, we shouldn't mess with nature
