If we could ever competitively, at a cheap rate, get freshwater from salt water, that would be in the long-range interests of humanity which would really dwarf any other scientific accomplishments. – President John F. Kennedy, 1962
The biggest challenges will be to reduce the cost of energy-intensive de-salinated water, reduce its reliance on fossil fuels, and ensure that it becomes an environmentally acceptable solutions by avoiding environmental damage from desalination.
MEETING TODAY'S CHALLENGE WITH BREAKTHROUGH DISRUPTIVE TECHNOLOGY
Make everything as simple as possible, but not simpler - Albert Einstein
The purpose for the development of the simple double down-to-earth breakthrough disruptive technology based on the Principles of Applied Simplicity is to provide urgently needed infrastructures for Freshwater Resources for countries in regions of the world where freshwater shortages are becoming acute and water supply is no longer environmentally sustainable and therefore a serious constraint on their development.
High-temperature nuclear reactors may generate
Proposals have been made to create systems of man-made rivers, canals and lakes to draw water from the Mediterranean and the Persian Gulf for nuclear powered desalinization plants along their
THE PRINCIPLES OF APPLIED SIMPLICITY:
EVAPORATION, CONDENSATION, PRECIPITATION, WATER
The continuous circulation of water from the earth’s surface, to the atmosphere, - brought about by evaporation from surface water and by evapotranspiration (from soil and vegetation), giving rise to water vapour in the atmosphere which condenses,form clouds – and returns as precipitation back to the earth’s surface,swelling the oceans, seas, lakes and rivers or becoming ground water is a hydrological cycle that is becoming increasingly incapable of meeting populations’ needs where it is most needed through its natural processes due to expanding human activities and their impact on nature.
It is becoming rather
