realities surrounding an aim for population sustainability in tandem with controlled, carbon neutral powered desalination of the oceans?
The principle being that ice fresh water melts at the top of the water table. If salt water is taken out and the salt balance is re-added in the correct parts / 1000 to the ocean at the ocean sources be they river estuaries or glaciers could we sustain a necessary salt water equilibrium. All fresh water taken from desalination could be allocated for the cooling within 'closed industrial systems' and the water we currently collect for these uses used exclusively for drinking along with our present use of drinking water. Could we therefore answer our demands while maintaining a sustainable fresh water rain cycle? Global water resources controlled by an apolitical supranational institution with global stakeholders. Water projects would be measured and assigned according to feasibility and necessity, with the mission to maintain our existing biodiversity and a sustainable global ecosystem. If desalinated drinking water was made available to populations, for example in sub-Saharan Africa, as in the UAE for example, what would be the impact on the present balance of the water cycle and global ecosystem?
