Cheap Drinking Water from the Ocean

An MIT Tech Review Article writes: t "Carbon nanotube-based membranes will dramatically cut the cost of desalination." A water desalination system using carbon nanotube-based membranes could significantly reduce the cost of purifying water from the ocean. The technology could potentially provide a solution to water shortages both in the United States, where populations are expected to soar in areas with few freshwater sources, and worldwide, where a lack of clean water is a major cause of disease.

Despite all the bad news we get fed from the major media sources, I believe the good times are ahead.
