Water Desalination should be one of the biggest upcoming industries in our world today. It is a way for people to get water in parts of the world that are lacking in fresh water but are relatively near salt water. It also is a way for us to deal with rising sea levels, which are most likely going to increase with global warming. As flooding looms, keep taking the water out of the ocean, even if it means storing it in man-made reservoirs until ready to desalinate it.
Managing Earth will keep an eye on any developments in the Desalination Industry, especially those that reduce the cost of the process to produce fresh water. Visit our Pinterest Page on Water Desalination to see great examples of this important technology.
