Solar-Powered Pipe Desalinates 1.5 Billion Gallons of Drinking Water a Year for California

Posted: January 28, 2017 in news

This is some cool creative problem solving that works without a real downside. We need more solutions that have no downside…or at least have downsides that aren’t direct steps toward disaster. Or we could keep burning fossil fuels when we know we really shouldn’t. We can build more nuclear plants in seismically hyperactive areas, and scar the land with pipelines that eventually start leaking and destroying natural fresh water aquifers. While we’re at it, let’s pump more toxic chemicals into the ground at high pressure to get those fuels out…that way we can credit our ingenuity and genius for polluting the aquifers and creating our own earthquakes and sinkholes, all in one greedy shot. Makes so much more sense than free power and clean water from the sun.
