Hi twister ... do you have a solution for all that?
Hi twister
-for the first Q: yes, I think we would realy have a new world war because of water and it's realy hapening now I think one of the reasons that Israel is colonizing Palestine is becaus of water... think about it Asi river Tabaria Lake and the Mediterranean so I think it will happen
-for the second one: I think the scince will solve it by invent Refineries for the contaminated water and I'm there is one these now
-for the 3rd one:yes, but I will done in the far future after that maybe there will be new things I dont know but I'm sure they will find the Solution

P.S:about the targted countries now I dont think that some of the countries will be attacked by onther countrie now in these days but after 50 or 100 year maybe

Hi Anonymous,

I'm thankful for your participation.

Go forward,because you still have many ideas to discuss with me and with the rest of the members about WATER.

Hi every body,

What is about our so-called topic ?

Yesterday, I was talking with a friend of mine about the solutions you've offered.

He offered me a future idea to have a good amount of fresh water .He told me

" is thinking about fetching water from the planet MARS to our planet .

--- I think you all know that MARS has lots of pure water ---

But the cost would be so expensive ,and would sell us this extraterrestrial water with a higher prices .

By this process , would make a fortune out of a natural disaster.

Somehow, would appear as the patriot of that age,eventhough it is using the people to get the fortune it wanted ."
Good heavens! Where did this idea come from? Do you seriously believe this, or are you just looking to provoke people with this comment?

Ultimately, the oceans will provide more drinking water.

This is from http://www.safe-drinking-water-systems.com/faq/how-can-we-use-ocean-drinking-water.htm :

How can we use ocean drinking water?

Most of the United States has, or can gain access to, ample supplies of fresh drinking water. However, in some parts of the country and world, fresh drinking water is in short supply. In addition, as the population continues to grow, shortages of fresh drinking water will occur more often. In some areas, salt water – from the ocean, for instance – is being turned into drinking water. Safely using ocean drinking water, however, is a tricky process.

In California, the towns of Santa Barbara and Avalon have begun using desalinization methods to remove the salt from seawater and turn it into suitable drinking water. A promising method to desalinate seawater and make use of ocean drinking water possible is the "reverse osmosis" method. Right now, the high cost of desalinization has kept it from being used more often, as it can cost over $1,000 per acre-foot to desalinate seawater and make it into drinking water, compared to about $200 per acre-foot to purify normal water into suitable drinking water. However, desalinization technology is improving and costs are falling. For example, in Tampa Bay, FL, water is currently being desalinized at a cost of only $650 per acre-foot. As both the demand for fresh drinking water and technology increase, you can expect to see more use of ocean drinking water, especially in areas such as California and the Middle East.
Thanks TWISTER for the interesting topic and the brilliant idea that you've come up with .

I really wonder why some people find it strange when they hear about fetching water from the planet MARS or any other one to our planet .

Scientists with all the signs which occur at this time ; The population that is growing and running the trace amount of water in Earth , the environmental pollution that is growing more than ever before and the crystal clear fact that says " water will not last forever " , Trying to find new resources or to find out a method that enables them to have fresh and pure drinking water , salt water – from the ocean, for instance – is being turned into drinking water .

They succeeded in finding out a method as I mentioned above , but it is not that ultimate success because it costs so much . As GRAMMAR GEEK says in her post :

" The high cost of desalinization has kept it from being used more often, as it can cost over $1,000 per acre-foot to desalinate seawater and make it into drinking water, compared to about $200 per acre-foot to purify normal water into suitable drinking water "

Scientists till now haven't found jut a new resource , that's why they do think of looking for water out of this planet .

Here is what David Grinspoon ; a research scientist at the Southwest Research Institute in Boulder, Colorado, says in an interview with Astrobiology Magazine :

Astrobiology Magazine (AM): You've suggested, in contrast to the conventional view, that Venus may have held onto its water for perhaps as long as 2 billion years. What are the implications for habitability?

David Grinspoon (DG): For habitability, there are implications for Venus and there are implications for terrestrial planets in general. Venus almost certainly had liquid water when it was young. So the conditions for the origin of life, as conventionally defined, were satisfied there as much as on Earth and Mars.

We've been hearing a lot about how Mars may never have been warm, so perhaps Venus was more habitable in that sense than Mars.

The problem in thinking about the habitability of Venus is that, in the conventional view, the water didn't last long. But if the water lasted for billions of years, that becomes much more interesting for the possibility of biological development.

Earth is going to lose its oceans in the future, just as Venus did in the past. How long planets retain their oceans is a function of distance from the sun, all other things being equal. But clouds may allow planets to hold onto their oceans at closer distances to the sun than has been conventionally thought.

[ I deleted few parts of the answer which are not related to our topic ]

Let's suppose that that idea of having fresh and pure water out of salt water – from the ocean , was adopted by specific countries , which countries -do you think –would be well qualified to get started in such a process ?

Of course not the third classed countries , because they even don't know how to give their people a decent living , thus the first classed one would be , I mean the super power countries as Twister says .

As a result the super power countries would be the only one , So they would become more and more rich and make fortune out of this process , while the third classed countries would decay even more than before thousand times .

That's why we are in need to have new resources .
Hi Grammar Geek,

I read your posts hopefully.And I noticed that you are not convinced by the idea of fetching water from MARS.
Grammar GeekGood heavens! Where did this idea come from? Do you seriously believe this, or are you just looking to provoke people with this comment?
I surely believe this idea ,because it is a scientific belief not a personal one as you claimed.

you accused me that Iam trying to provoke people with my previous comment.

Today,I have some thing amazing for you .please read the following article to discover how realistic I am:

Water On Mars Could Sustain Human Colonies
WASHINGTON -- Finding water on Mars could burst open the floodgates to a new era of exploration on the planet, fueling the drive for eventual human colonies.

Futurists and far-thinkers say that if water is found to exist in sizable quantities, it someday could lead to everything from fuel farms and filling stations for rockets to shower stalls for astronauts.

WASHINGTON -- Finding water on Mars could burst open the floodgates to a new era of exploration on the planet, fueling the drive for eventual human colonies.

Futurists and far-thinkers say that if water is found to exist in sizable quantities, it someday could lead to everything from fuel farms and filling stations for rockets to shower stalls for astronauts.


"Going to Mars is like a camping trip, so it's the difference between having to pack everything in with you or finding gas tanks and showers when you get there. It could make establishing a human presence on Mars a lot easier," she said.

Water -- the source of life

Water is about the most valuable resource Mars has because it can sustain life.

"Gold is not going to do you much good on Mars. You can't live off that," said Wes Huntress, director of the Geophysical Laboratory, Carnegie Institution of Washington. "But you can live off water and you can use it to grow food. It makes the planet habitable."

here is the link if you like to check it out by yourself: http://www.space.com/scienceastronomy/solarsystem/mars_futurist_000622.html

As Frankly Speaking said:oceans' water won't last forever.

So,we're seeking a solution to a matter of a million years .for me,it would be better to be a far-thinker by thinking about the far future in order to have a sense of responsapility towards the future's generations.

I believe that Mars Or the Moon will be our second home........

By the way, Sea water now can be converted into drinking water, but it cost much.....
