Less people, more water (the age 20070409)

It is much easier to purify sewage than to attempt to desalinate seawater. There is no stream of highly salty water to corrode the plant and be got rid of. In either case there are the pumping costs for coastal cities to return the clean water to the dams. Far better to reduce demand. Whats wrong with reducing population? Isnt the nearly 1000 more people being added to Melbourne each week only making matters worse?
