The British isles is surrounded by sea water! He says Rivers flowing from the high ground into the sea. This water is reused repeatedly, and consequently polluted. The answer to turning this water into fresh water, is evaporation.
But heating the water is very energy intensive! A far better idea is to apply vacuum. Only one metre of vacuum head causes even ice to evaporate into water vapour.
This is a basic definition of the enzyme system. This level of pumping can easily be supplied by a vacuum pump during the day. During the night off peak electricity is the cheapest answer.
We pump the water vapour to high storage! And vented above the reservoir: this requires 1000 times less pumping power than transporting liquid water.
The water loses all contaminants and salts: it is basically decelerated water. Plants will love it! They will grow fast, taking in the trivial amount of carbon dioxide released by man burning the fossil fuels.
Which all used to be active biology in prehistory: global photosynthesis caps free carbon dioxide at only two parts per million. All extra carbon dioxide is converted into plant biomass within five years.
A static trace gas has no effect on anything! Professors who have written papers on man made climate change being coals by increasing levels of carbon dioxide in the global air; need to retake high school biology!
Carbon is fixed by biology.
