So you are going to undo Entropy without using Energy?  That will be a first for the Universe.

If you built a seawall in a cove with high tidal differences, you could use the pressure of the water against the wall at high tide to push it through desalinating membranes.

Of course, you still would have pumping to do since the fresh water you would be collecting would be below sea level.  You probably could do the pumping with windmills though.  In fact, you could use windmills to pump seawater through desalinating membranes directly.

Thank you, RE, for trying to inject some reality into Palloy's selective thermodynamics fun and games. You see, Palloy is about as objective on these matters of energy in general (AND FOSSIL FUELS IN PARTICULAR) as Putin. Palloy thinks fossil fuels are IT. Of course he pretends to "like" renewable if they, uh, would "only" be as "efficient" as those GLORIOUSLY "energy dense" fossil fuels. It's like talking to a wall. He never stops his wishful thinking about that crap called fossil fuels. His concepts of scientific terms like entropy and thermodynamics and maybe brownean movement and molecular diffusion, etc. are so twisted to defend polluting fuels and ALWAYS find fault with ANY Renewable Energy, that he continues to come up with fascinating bits of erudite sounding irrelevance to try to persuade the uneducated that isn't full of S H I T.

He COMPLETELY missed the point of the graphene filter. Yeah, it takes a LOT of energy to make graphene. BUT, the filter itself will EASILY separate Na and Cl  ions associated with water molecules by gravity alone. Old Palloy likes big factories and scaled up monstrocities that he can point to as being "more efficient". ::)

These graphene filters will be distributed to individuals and will probably NEVER be part of some big desalination facility, although that option is available. And entropy doesn't have beans to do with all this because a solar powered water pump can easily dump sea water into a graphene filter. Gravity will, alas for Palloy, defeat part of all that entropy that poor Palloy is obsessing about (deliberately on purpose, of course   ). The forces inside a graphing filter take care of other entropy caused energy gradient factors by dislodgling the normal charge on a clump of sea water by their whiplashing (graphene isn't perfectly flat - it has a modified chair structure like graphite, but more ordered) around of positive and negative charges in the graphene structure. It's AMAZING STUFF!        

But thanks again for showing how CFS can be applied to the graphene filter to overcome any minor problems. If Palloy wants to make entropy mountains out of gravity assist molehills, that's his problem. I think he takes his talking points from Pruitt and/or Putin.
