Desalination and the world's water problems

Link: https://singularityhub.com/2019/06/18/inching-towards-abundant-water-new-progress-in-desalination-tech/

 

As a kid, I really couldn't understand why we couldn't just make the ocean water drinkable. It was only in my teens that I understood that desalination is costly and is a very inefficient way of solving water shortage. However, water shortages are definitely a problem that future cities will be facing. I think desalination can be one of the viable options if we can continue to build on the current technology available.
