Humanity May Face Choice By 2040: Conventional Energy or Drinking Water

Humanity May Face Choice By 2040: Conventional Energy or Drinking Water | Unlimited pure water from the air | Scoop.it

A set of studies based on three years of research concludes that by 2040, the need for drinking water and water for use in energy production will create dire shortages.

 

Conventional electricity generation is the largest source of water use in most countries. Water is used to cool power plants to keep them functional. Most power utilities don’t even record the amount of water they use.

We face this choice NOW! 2040 will be too late.

The future is here just unevenly distributed. However, not taking action based on what is visible now, discovering patterns in Cases / across cases will make it impossible to react in time. In terms of water and power 2040 is as close as next week for ordinary work.

How Deep Is The American West’s Water Challenge? | On Point Radio | WBUR.org

How Deep Is The American West’s Water Challenge? | On Point Radio | WBUR.org | Unlimited pure water from the air | Scoop.it

A NASA study says the water problem in the American is deeper than we thought. We’ll look at the West’s deep water challenge.


If you’ve been to Lake Mead you’ve seen it. Prolonged drought in the West has driven the country’s largest reservoir to its lowest level in memory. But the true crisis lies below the Colorado Basin bedrock.


More than 75% of the water lost in the last nine years came from groundwater supplies. And it may never come back. That’s water for 40 million Americans. Water for 4 million acres of farmland. Without drastic action, the water crisis may permanently change the Western way of life.  This hour, On Point: groundwater crisis in the western U.S.
