Let's talk about Water. It covers around 75% of the Earth, but we can only consume a fraction of that; seeing how we kind of, sort of need it to survive, that can be a problem. There are many places around the globe that don't receive enough water to sustain their populations or crop production, which is bad for everyone. Now let's talk about the Air. There's a lot of it. Literally, it's all around us (and it often feels like we don't even know it). Literally, air's everywhere up in this bitch. So, what's the point of bringing both water and air up? And why reference that horrendous Insane Clown Posse song? Well, read on and find out. Source: CNN According to the article, one turbine could produce up 1000 liters of water a day (depending on the exact humidity, temperature, and wind speeds). If you're interested in reading up on how this would operate, the article provides a bit of a run down. This definitely has some potential, enabling us to provide some effective aid to the struggling areas that need it most. Sure, the initial production costs are pretty high right now, but that cost will surely begin to shrink and dwindle over time. When that happens, we would have a great, accessible way to provide a steady supply of that precious liquid we depend so much on. Plus, if the Earth ever does become Waterworld, we wouldn't have to worry about drinking our own urine for nourishment (Take that, Kevin Costner!). ...And in response to the latter question, because I damn well felt like it.
