I agree with frothy dog, we can quite easily ruin the earth. and unless we check ourselves, we may be well on our way to doing so.

Exactly, we can only screw up the Earth so much that it endangers ourselves but not everything around us. Therefore the earth devours us before we devour the earth.

It contains roughly 78% nitrogen and 21% oxygen, with trace amounts of other gases.

The atmospheric abundance of free oxygen in later geological epochs and up to the present has been largely driven by photosynthetic organisms, roughly three quarters by phytoplankton and algae in the oceans and one quarter from terrestrial plants.

When sea rising, maybe the ocean will convert more CO2 to O2 by photosynthetic organisms.

For the desert, we might reuse and laminate those waste rubber(tire), plastic into sheets and cover those sheets on the desert area. At least it might prevent the dust storm forming. After several years, we will see what nature will do. Maybe a surprising green land (Hope someone rent me a small desert to test this idea). At least we have free place for refuge camp.

There are two simple methods to produce fresh water from the sea: "ice" and "vapour".

If you lived in north pole region,
in summer, you put sea water into plastic containers. In winter, it's pretty cold in air, -60 degree or so. Ice formed in the containers. The remaining liquid, supposed good for spa, windshiel washer, salt, etc. In this way you may produce lots ice and might save yourselves, polar bears, or even the earth, though slowly.

We may use mirrors or so, to concentrate sun light. Focus it on the sea, vapour will rise. By collecting the vapour, we will have drinkable water.

Hope this may solve your drought problem.

What's your method to obtain fresh water from the sea? The existing products excludes.

That's like "dreaming the impossible dream", "catching that exculive butterfly", "can't we all just get along" ect.. sadly, I sure you know what I mean.

To your 1st question, for two decades now I always believe in 'Bill Nye the Science Guy' (he's my dream man hehe). Bill Nye has NEVER let me down yet. Here is what he has to say:

NYE: The safety of the water. When you start to get all these bacteria in the water they start consuming the oxygen and the heavy metals accumulate up the food chain as fish eat little fish and then humans being in that water, if you have open cuts and so on, it's dangerous. You can get infections.

Also from the Report on the 6th Meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the Climate Convention  The Hague, Netherlands, November 13 25, 2000


Promising Trends

Despite the lack of a formal agreement, several promising trends emerged from the rubble of COP-6. Four in particular stand out.

First, the science is now accepted as sound by virtually all involved. Dr. Robert Watson's strong opening speech set the stage for the negotiations by referencing the IPCC's forthcoming Third Assessment Report. In contrast, contrarian Dr. Fred Singer arrived the second week of negotiations but was hardly even noticed. As mentioned above, Senators Hagel and Craig, in a meeting with environmental NGOs, publicly recognized that the science is "coalescing."
Second, there continue to be noticeable shifts among the US and multinational business community on global warming. Few businesses were in active opposition in The Hague, and many now support the global warming treaty in principle.
Third, there is increasing recognition that the United States can in fact meet its emissions targets without wrenching the economy. The recent report from the Department of Energy and five national laboratories that details cost-effective emissions reduction policies received widespread attention from both the media and other countries' negotiators at COP-6.
Fourth, the EU and Japan continue to indicate that they want to ratify in time for the Protocol to enter into force by the 10th anniversary of the Rio Earth Summit in June 2002.
All of these trends are hopeful signs that "the corner has been turned" on this issue and that we will see more promising results -- both domestically and internationally -- in the near future.

I think Mankind is doomed.
take a good hard look at what our planet has become.  
The United States has been a gross polluter over the last century.
The industrial age did alot of damage to mother Earth,  I think they called it "Progress".

Now with the Planet on it's last lap,  Countries like China & India are just getting started!

Man is inherently flawed & although their are individuals who SEE what has been going
on,  The majority havn't a clue what is really going on,  or they just don't give a shyt.

I think Earth will end up being uninhabital for Man & most land species.
eventually over time with the absense of Man,  The planet will return to a semi normal
state & the Apes will rise above.  The only remnents of Man will lie in the forbidden zone.

Global Warming is one of many troubles facing the world.

Amoung all others: natural disasters, war, poverty, pollution, murder of animals, cutting of trees, sheltering of truth and knowledge, selfish lost-souls bathing in money. ETC
