I'm not sure what's worse - the townspeople afraid of the technology, or the company man's use of the word "toxical."

It is easy, but to do it on a massive scale costs too much for anybody to make any money off it so it's a terrible idea.

my point is isnt shouldnt cost that much....there should be a machine to easily run it thru and take the damn salt out and pipeline it where you want it to go

Added to the queue...thanks. Judging from the description somebody needs to tell Matt Damon about this so he quits relying on Stella and I to help us be remembered as the generation who solved the world's water crisis.

Navy ships use desalinization units. They've been around for years.

There was some description of it as being a distiller vs using a filteration system and/or reverse osmosis (what the Navy uses for desalination). Makes it faster and more compact.

A big problem, briefly described in the film, is that the target users don't know how to handle water in a sanitary fashion. Apparently there have been efforts to educate them, with very little positive results.

We Finally Know How Birds Can See Earth's Magnetic Field

Quote
While scientists have known for quite some time that birds can see Earth's magnetic field, it was unclear exactly how birds are able to visualize the magnetic field. Two recent studies from researchers at Lund University in Sweden and Carl von Ossietzky University Oldenburg in Germany discovered that the ability is a result of a special protein in bird's eyes. The two papers studied European robins and zebra finches and found evidence for an unusual eye protein called Cry4.

The Cry4 protein is part of a class of protein called a cryptochrome that is sensitive to blue light. Cryptochromes are found in both plants and animals and are responsible for circadian rhythms in various species. In the two bird species above, it appears that the presence of cryptochromes, specifically the Cry4 protein, is responsible for the ability of birds to visually detect Earth's magnetic field.

The ability to see Earth's magnetic field, known as magnetoreception, relies on the presence of specifically the blue wavelength of light. The complex process involves "radical" intermediate molecules which are sensitive to Earth's magnetic field. The Earth's magnetic field, as it relates to the direction the bird is facing, could alter the intermediate radical molecules differently, giving the bird a sense for where it is facing in relation to the Earth's magnetic field.
