Solving water, energy problems

In your Sept. 25 Opinions section, you had two extremely important global writings. They were about our need for more fresh water and power supplies to move the cars of the world.

Several poor countries east of Saudi Arabia get all of their water from the Persian Gulf, using desalination. There is also a huge supply of hydrogen in the world, which can power all the world's cars. The world can heat and cool all our homes by using solar power!

Global warming will eventually put most of the world's coastal cities under water unless we work to solve our problems. But we need new infrastructure to meet our problems, and too many governments don't want to do this.
