According to those who know these things, we are facing a drought that could rival 1976. Here's an solution, who agrees or disagrees, like I don't already know.

We currently have an energy shortage, a water shortage, and a need to reduce our carbon footprint right? So shut the hippies up and build a load of nuclear power stations. These work by using nuclear power to heat water to steam, which then turns turbines, producing electricity. So use saltwater and instead of letting the steam escape out of those massive cooling towers, collect it, condense it and ta da! Fresh drinking water, though you will have to clean the salt out of the bottom of the tower every now and then. Also a lower carbon footprint and more 'leccy. Three birds, one stone :)

I didn't dream up the above but tell me the all knowing zone, is it a goer or a non starter. Cost is not an answer as that can be recouped over a period, I want serious for and against arguements which means plain English from Osy and a open answer from Barna not an hidden question or agenda.

On your marks, get set, GO!!
