Water, water everywhere and not a drop to drink

I didn’t realise how VERY bad the drought in the Cape, South Africa is, until a reader of this blog alerted me to it.

They spent time this morning, collecting their water.

In Cape Town itself the situation is becoming dire.

“Four million citizens will be expected to collect 25 litres per person from one of 200 collection points,” he said. “A true nightmare scenario is developing before our very eyes.” Link

Will Cape Town be the first city to run out of water?

“The technology to connect people to a water supply has been around since ancient Egypt. It’s not a technical problem,” he says.

Well, bloody hell? Really? You could have fooled me!

The best we can do at the moment is a Graphene-based sieve. that turns seawater into drinking water….in TINY quantities.

We can insert stents into hearts in a day clinic, we can photograph Mars, we can drone-attack a single person, we can run a car on water, we can dive miles down into the ocean trench, we can feed millions of people in huge cities with efficient food-supplying systems but we can’t get water for our consumption from the sea!
