What If Ocean Water Lost Its Salt

5589 ratings | 282709 views
Lots of people on certain parts of continents don’t have access to fresh water from rivers or lakes, and this crisis is getting more and more serious each year. Every 7th person on the planet suffers from a lack of access to clean drinkable water right now. And some experts say that as the world population doubles by 2030, that statistic will skyrocket to one-half! Actually, 97% of all the water on the planet has always been briny, and you can safely assume that it’s this way for a reason. …So magically pushing a button to make it fresh water in this hypothetical situation would be devastating for life on this planet. And here's why.

You’d think these sources would dilute the sea and decrease the salt content. But in fact, it’s quite the opposite. Water in rivers is also brackish – it’s just 70 times less salty than in the ocean. - Each year 4 billion tons of salt are carried into the ocean just from rivers alone. If you keep doing that for the billions of years this planet has been in existence, you can imagine how much salt would gather there. - Sea salt derives from a hydrochloric acid, while river salts are from carbonic acid. More scientists today believe that the oceans have been salty from the start because of volcanic activity. - The most obvious consequence is that the innumerable forms of marine life can only exist in briny water – they wouldn’t survive in fresh water. - Without them, we’d lose this source of food, which would have a serious impact on not only the countries that are highly dependent on their fishery sectors, but also those they export to! - Like animals, algae are capable of feeding on organic material in their environment. Like plants, they take part in photosynthesis. They play a huge role in sustaining life because of this. - Ocean currents make the climate on earth a lot more tolerable and suitable for living. Take salt from the oceans, and the currents will disappear. Salt water has a much lower freezing temperature too. Without the salt, bigger parts of the oceans would turn to ice during the winter. - Plus, all that salt would eventually start appearing right back in the oceans! Minerals from the Earth’s crust would start dissolving into the sea again, and oceanic floor vents would also pump minerals into the water.

We should make a way towards multipurpose plants which can convert sea water into fresh by heating and the released heat and steam is used for running turbine to generate electricity

We can evaporate the water so the salt is left behind and we get water

You forgot to say that without salt in the water then you’ll sink to the bottom because salt helps you float

We can make distilled water, we need a big bucket, cover it on a plastic cloth, put heavy objects on that plastic sheet. Take a cup in a low position. For sea water, river water, dirty water, ... into the bucket. Put the bucket in the sun. We will get clean water in the cup Boil water and cool it so we can drink it

There is a product called "Lifestraw", which can turned the average water from nature, say, the stream, the bog, the rain, into drinkable water simply by its filtering system, which is great!

yeah let's leave the salt water alone, 8:18 I don't have any idea to get more fresh water (for now anyway ^^; ) but rain is fresh water so long as we have rain we'll be alright

Too slove this we should get filtration systems near the ocean also powered by wind turbines for that echofrindlyness and the filtration system would clean the water and we could give it to people who need it.

If im not mistaken, there are a lot of science projects that try to make saltwater less salty and suitable for drinking...

There's many ways to get fresh water from the ocean there's different machines and ways to filters water. They even showed it on different TV shows. Even on Netflix TV shows like Bill Nye Saves the World season 3 shows to ways to get clean water from saltwater.

This video reminds me of third day of creation when God separated land from waters for humans to live on, but human brain always think opposite. Allow rain water to sink in the ground, rather than filling with plastic.

scientists need to find some substance that will remove salt from oceans n make water treatment plant near coastal areas.. h2o+nacl+magic substance=fresh water + whatever..

Did you know you can separate water and salt by putting it though a coffee filter. The way I know this is because I had to do that in 5th grade for science and it worked.

Well humans are trying to find a habitabal planet due to over population and also if there was an invention to remove the salt then we could easily just take about 3 percent of salt water and then we'd be fine

dry the ocean faster than usual to account for more people alive. though it will lead to denser saltwaters.

You guys should focus on feasable reality or try to figure out when the lies started or what is theory or fact proven with scientific method.

Collect rain using rain capture tanks you know you can drink rain from the sky then recycle rain water then put on your fridge to make it cold or just drink. Please subscribe mods.

Swim in the sea in Kemi northern Finland, traceable salt in the water there.
