From a distance, up and up into space, our planet is blue in color. This color comes from all the water on the Earth’s surface; 75% of our planet’s surface is covered with water. Ironically, most of that water is not suitable as drinking water, especially for humans and most land animals and plants that rely on fresh, clean water for life.
The crime reality is that drinking water is quickly becoming rare, and even more so with the increasing speed of desertification. All thanks to global warming; places that historically receive plenty of reliable rainfall, now get either less rainfall and when they do, they get too much rain that it ends up destroying crops in the fields and damaging people’s dwellings.
Well, a group of researchers has come up with a miniature water harvester that can pull water right out of thin air. The device works even in areas of low humidity; as lows as 20%. Professor Omar Yaghi, a chemist at the University of California and one of the researchers who came up with this prototype water harvester, said:
“We wanted to demonstrate that if …read more
