Peak Water: How will it affect our oceans?

Once we run out of drinking water along with all the major countries' desalination plants up and running, pumping billions of gallons of water out of the ocean per day, how will our planet be affected?

Will the ocean's pH level be totally messed up?

How will fish and other marine die off when we start taking their water?

    but yeah, I've heard a lot of people talking about the shift in (or stop) of ocean currents (which play a big role in regulating climate). TED has some really good videos on earths oceans you should check out. I think we will see a lot of underdeveloped countries having major population losses related to this (i.e. drinking water, food, ect.)

    this world sucks don't it?
