My favorite “Freshly Pressed” from today’s offerings…may you enjoy it too!
See ya tomorrow – I’m busy freaking out about the race on Sunday.
San Diego is about to construct a major desalination plant that will cost $900M to build, and will produce 50-million gallons of potable water a day from sea water. That’s enough to supply 7% of the population of San Diego, costing each resident $678.
That’s great, except for two things.
One, there are environmental concerns. These are serious enough, but probably can be addressed.
Two, in a better world, a readily achievable world, 50-million gallons of water could supply at least 35% of the San Diego population, not a paltry 7%. In an arid city heavily dependent on water from elsewhere, a city whose water supply will probably soon be compromised by global warming, this is a vital consideration.

How might it be possible to get so much…
