  1. I dpon’t know how many realize how much the West Bank/Gaza/Israel situation revolves around water. A lot if interest is on the wall, but not enough on water.

    From a technology standpoint, a decent amount of water can be desalted with a passive solar system. This provides cheap water, without global warming.

    From an economic standpoint, we should be looking at reusing water – gray water can be used for agriculture, and buying stuff needing less water (free range cattle).
