This means that vegetation will die followed by the animals and will create an ecological disaster in that area.

    Sure the NW could handle this but Arizona could not.
    But it's no different than what is now being done with lots of dryland farming, and does have the benefit of not poisoning the seas with sewage.

    The natural cycle can be handled by nature, but concentrated dumping of huge amounts of sewage at a single point as happens with sewage being dumped into water kills the localized environment.

    You know, the opposite of the old standby, "the solution to pollution is dilution" mantra.

    I have no problem with that, I am a big fan of the ocean and pollution is a very real problem.

    Go diving off the Huntington Beach pier once if you want to see all the crap in the ocean.

    You are looking at this problem all wrong.

    And most of the land in not inhospitable to humans, we can live in any environment, we just won't spend the money to make it happen.

    We can build up, we can build down, we can build underwater......we can easily support as many people that will ever come.
    I agree that we can live anywhere if we spend enough to make a hostile area livable.

    Thanks for pointing that out Captain Obvious.

    When we decide to improve our damaged eco system, you will not see too many cows as they do more damage to it than humans do, almost.
