It Never Rains In Southern California

This could be a title for a song, only trouble is it never rains in California period.   So it’s not a new phenomenon for them, as year after year the land burns it’s just the scale that has changed. The lack of rain now affects most of the west coast.

So lets look at what they have got. Lots of sun for a start and a great big ocean, however the water is salty, how sad.  Perhaps the salt could be removed, now there’s an idea a de-salinization plant in fact a solar de-salinization plant, all that sun could be put to good use.

A solar furnace turning sea water into steam, then cooling it down with the end product Drinking Water wow. But that is not the only product, all that salt ready to sell or be used when winter comes and that steam could be used to produce electricity  saving the state lots of dollars.

Think about it!  you could sell the water, sell the salt and electricity.  Surely someone wants to make money, No?

Oh well when you are thirsty enough………….

About michaeldouglasbosc

I am retired and live with my wife on a small olive finca in the middle of a forest in the mountains of Spain in Catalonya. I served 9years in the armed services, am an engineer and because of my love of navy sailing ships a naval historian of the 1700-1800's, plus the author of 10 books. When I retired I started writing adult books my first being A Soldiers Wind. Then came Stanley's story again adult books such was his life. Another book on life in the 1950's this very much an adult book. I have now returned to my love of the sea and my latest navy book 'A Plymouth Story' follows the life of Dr James Blackstock. But Clearing In The Forest is an historical fantasy set in the middle ages at the end of King Johns reign. All the books are published on Kindle and Create a Space in paperback. I have worked all my life and for relaxation I sailed a coastal yacht for many years, but deep inside me was a writer waiting to get out. So when I retired I started writing I find story telling both relaxing and - for me - a pleasure.
