    Yep, you don’t want to pull any water out of the ocean. Then the global warming people will get upset that their sea levels aren’t rising as they predicted. So let the crops die for the enviromentalists. We can just start eating bugs.

      There’s a lot of protien in bugs. And some of them could be a meal in themselves!

      I really hope that was a joke…

      “Beyond the electricity required for the desalination facility itself, producing any new source of water, including through desalination, increases the amount of energy required to deliver and use the water produced as well as collect, treat, and dispose of the wastewater generated,” said Heather Cooley, co-director of the Pacific Institute Water Program and report author.

      Conservation and efficiency, by contrast, can help meet the anticipated needs associated with growth while maintaining or even reducing total energy use and greenhouse gas emissions.”

    This idea was floated back in the 80′s when there was a drought. But it got shelved ‘cuz it would have taken too long to build.

    ‘course…had they built it then, it’d be running now and the city wouldn’t have to worry.
