Saudi Arabia has spent billions on desalination plants and so should we if water is becoming that scarce of a resource. If we create enough water
where its no longer a scarce resource than we don't have to worry about the corporate world creating a monopoly on it.
This would work for Saudi Arabia but not America. The size of the countries as well as population will be a key factor.
Total Population 316,668,576
Total Area in Square Miles 3,794,101 sq. mi.
Total Population 31,225,300
Total Area in Square Miles 830,000 sq. mi.
We have far too much land to water and thirsty people to make enough.
