I am far from an expert on this topic, but you would assume with all the noise currently with water shortages that a project like this would be green lighted.

Nope, got to protect that coast.

Sorry for the CNN link.

Leftists never actually value human life.  I'm beginning to think that deep down at heart they all want to pull a thanos and halve the world population just for starters.  For the environment!

Serious question, why aren't these plants all over the coastline of the US?

Probably to prevent “Ocean Salting”

This is the same Leftist reasoning that shuts down a factory that makes half the baby formula needed in the United States. No plan beyond just shut it down

They are expensive and use a ton of electricity and most places already have enough fresh water.

Honestly, they consume a bunch of power and you do have an issue of how to deal with the brine that is left over.

They are fine in some scenarios not so much in others. It's not just a magic bullet fix for water shortages at an industrial scale.

Desalination + micro nuclear plants is the way to save the west.

If you could reduce Californias water demand from the Colorado river by 50% , you could fill lake Powell, mead, and havasu in 5-8 years depending on what type of water year you have.

It would be more reliable and could help with electrical issues in summer months as well if the plants are sized right

Idiots.

There as a thread about desalination on here in the past, I was curious so I looked into it. Aside from it being energy intensive, the brine is the main issue. There is talk of processing the brine into magnesium, calcium, potassium, chlorine and bromine as well as salt, sodium chloride, which I believe the Saudis already do, but they have the space to do it. The other arguments the hippies use are BS.

recommended against the facility, pointing in part to desalination's incredible energy consumption Something to look at since nobody will build nuc plants, its impacts on marine life(logical), projected sea-level rise stupid...If you are removing water from the Ocean, you will be helping rising sea levels and the cost of the resulting water itself -- with that cost being passed on to customers.(That is just laughable with the taxes and fees in CA, especially the gas taxes

Gavin Newsom actually wanted this to pass but the California costal commission voted it down. He wants to keep the nuclear power plant open also but I'm sure it will get shit canned also. Environmentalists are a cult.

ITT everyone who didn't read the report will share their well thought out conclusions to the 1200-year drought.

I am disappointed I can't find the California wild fire thread.

1,000 gpd is way larger than the RO unit I have for drinking water.

I don't have answers but you might be better off starting a thread with that exact question.

Partly because they're exorbitantly expensive and would likely require the construction of new nuke plants.

Mostly because the US is not a serious country.

I wonder if they could pipe the brine into the Salton Sea (which is drying up, due to natural causes), kind of like the Israelis are doing with the Dead Sea.

My understanding is the California water crisis is bad but not bad enough to justify desalination. Plus environmentalists point out that the salt has to go somewhere so it destroys the sea life when you dump the salt back into the water.

Israel is the GOAT when it comes to water. But their situation was way worse than Cali.

Nuclear power  and then use the brine to harvest salt for french fries and trace minerals for other things.
