Thanks for you feed back, the solar stills are cool, and it would be a fun project to work on with my niece too. It would work on a small scale project (and I have a few in mind). During the drought there was a local news story about a…"
I would say all our water is from rain. There should and will always be run off into the sea. We need to find alternative sources. The drought we have just experienced is as a result of no rain."

Rather, it takes domestic and well educated responses that address the factors that drove a culture to suffer so, such as from…See More
