Because they can control your behavior with shortages. Ultimately they want total control over every aspect of your life. The more pandemics and shortages and crime, the more control they can gain over your life.

I believe in science NOT religion. Giving me bad karma for that, is anti-religious (you're passing judgement) I am just a man. Of no significance. Who found religion to be full of lies, and wrong doing, conflicted teachings
I understand microwave communications.

Imagine how many desalinator plants could have been bought just by the cost of the weapons left behind in Afghanistan, which was 80 billion dollars?
If the people in charge are not traitors, I do not know what a traitor is.
And since the dawn of civilisation there has been only one type punishment for a traitor.

Imagine if Joe didnt keep sending 40 billion+ to Ukraine and spent it on desalinators.

It's been considered before; however, the cost of desalinizing water is way to high. It's not as simple as running sea water at a high rate through a few filters...

why doesn't any state build giant dehumidifier plants to harvest water in droughts or rainwater collection farms!!!? Rainstorms dump massive amounts of water especially in our new crazy climate.

Plenty of qualified people out there who could run a self sufficient desalination plant
Make it with a nuclear reactor, the type that navel ships use, the plant will create it's own electricity.

Because that would be too easy and save lives. They are saving the desalination plants for the third world banana states. They need to do things the hard way here and find excuses to raise taxes. Also not alowwed to use rain water capture methods anymore because of new environMENTAL policy. Oceans are rain water.

Each household uses one foot acre of water per year.
That’s 325,ooo gallons per household.

Yes-Besides Clean-up cost from operation-Ocean desalination runs between $2,000 & $2,500 an acre-foot-Brackish desalination ranges from $1,000-$2,000. An acre-foot-is 325,851 gals. the amount of water a family of 5 uses per/year, consuming an avg. of 10-13 kilowatt-hrs. (kwh) per 1,000 gals/processed

They can use gray water recycling it’s much easier.
You really only need 50,000 gallons per year if you
Recycle the same water 3 times before you flush

desalination takes energy.

only the oil producers are using in high volume
because they get their energy at cost.

Pumping in ocean water only works for a day .
The key to making desal plants work is pumping out the fresh water .
