We will reach the critical 1.5-degree threshold that portends severe and irreversible climate change even without another iota of emissions. Now what?
Desalination Alternatives: High Tech Solutions to the Freshwater Crisis Researchers Look Beyond Reverse Osmosis And Distillation
New alternative methods promise to make desalination — the separation of salt from ocean water — cleaner and more efficient.
How is it that climate change is negatively affecting the health of rivers and, by extension, the quality and availability of fresh water?
Because it is surrounded by oceans, many Australians have wondered for years if desalinization could provide fresh water to the country’s growing population. But desalinization is an energy-intensive process and has thus far proven prohibitively expensive. Now, two Australian companies have joined forces to test a unique desalinization plant that is run on wave energy.
