Hey, I always wondered what the lyrics were, Dysart. They make no sense. At all. Now that I’ve read them, it’s same as it ever was. Confusing. (Nice song and video, though.)

I think this story about freshwater in abundance under the seabed is a hoax. It makes no sense. At all. And you can’t even dance to it. I give it a 27.

Can you hear me, St. Cajetan?
I once knew a well so sweet.
I put my lips, my lips to the pail to drink.
But I gave it all up for salt water. ♫

Every day 30 million gallons of water flows through the head of the Ohio. I have to pay almost $100 per month for water and sewage treatment thanks to the EPA.

It’s insane.

You may ask yourself....

Under the Antarctic is a vast, vast reservoir with two unique sides. One is brine water and the other, which is lower, is fresh water. The earth is an amazing place. It takes care of itself.

which could sustain future generations as current sources dwindle.

There is the same amount of water yesterday as today. Water doesn't "dwindle." Like Ann Counter said - how can you claim a shortage of something that literally falls from the skies?

"In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, on the seventeenth day of the second month—on that day all the springs of the great deep burst forth, and the floodgates of the heavens were opened." — Genesis 7:11

Amazing isn't it how much evidence of Truth there is if we look with open minds.

The Israelis are doing desalination of the Med Sea on a grand scale. That seems more workable than digging for it.

I’m going to take a wild guess how that fresh water got there. Salt water filtering into a large underwater cave and passing through layers of mud and minerals on the bottom of the ocean. This resulted in the removal or absorption of salt similar to how a reverse osmosis system works. Eventually the underground cave became a ungerground ocean. Any more educated ideas?

I have to say that the premise that we’re running out of water is getting really old...

Amen to that! Every time that I hear someone talk about water as a finite resource, I know I'm listening to an idiot.

Can an ocean be fresh water?

Is it worth the effort and cost of deep sea drilling?
It's not that difficult to desalinate ocean water.

"...which could sustain future generations as current sources dwindle." And where is all this water supposedly disappearing to? TC

Indeed, my recollection is that Earth's water is reasonably constant, but of course not always in the same place in the same form.

Critical think: If we use all the water in the ocean how will we replace it
