If only, but we are along way from a practical solution. We are far better off using the natural resources we have: wave, river, wind and Sun of which there is plenty to go around. The issue is the corporation who supply the resouces today are against it and they have a lot of power :wink: :wink:

True, nuclear fussion is the answer, problem is they haven't achieved it yet, rather they did, but it requires more energy to run it than what it releases. Even at the Sun nuclear fussion does not occur on the surface, it occurs in the core where the sun cannot stand it's own gravity/pressure thus we get the elements fused into each other.It's very difficult/energy consuming to achieve such pressure on earth considering the Sun is 1 million times bigger.


There are a few good alternatives for example fill the planet with Photovoltaic panels, develop the Hydrogen Engines (by minimizing the risk of handling pure liquid Hydrogen).
At the Uni we learned all the theoritecal clean fission type nuclear reactions, there's a plethora of them and they are all using stable elements, but yet again there's been absolutely no development so far in achieving just one of them.

Main problem seems to be that these damn fossil fuels created an International economic net that -for the moment- is so strong that won't let us go.

Australia can't wait for Turkey to build a pipeline to Australia so that we can have more water.

In return, we will share our Angouria!

Water crisis puts 12 million at risk in Syria, Iraq, aid groups say

Higher temperatures, drought and record low rainfall levels are depriving millions of people of drinking and agricultural water.

Turkey gets plenty of rainfall in the north and the east. With proper planning al that water can be collected and distributed to the countries in the region. its not even that dificult to resolve. They can exchange water for oil etc. How hard can it be to work out a barter system to the benefit of all. Of course there is also water in the West Bank and the Israelis have got that and will not even give it to the people who woned the water before hand. Whilst one side does not have drinking water, the otherside is watering their gardens. Injustice everywhere.
