long term effects

the waste products it creates and also it will cost billions of dollars, will we have enough money to continue to do this?

pros and cons on humans

to make fresh drinkable water it cost lots of money, so therefore it is expensive.

when they take all the salt and minerals out of the water they have lots of salt and minerals left over that just sit there.

pros and cons on water

when they take the salt out there is a lot of salt left behind. so what are they suppose to do with all that salt? what they do is they put it back in the water an make the water even more salty. so then when they do it again its twice as salty.
