Rain and seas: is the ecological balance built on it?There is a big discussion about the need to have various check dams to collect all rain water, most of which drains into the sea. In Kerala, one understands that this is what has happens.
In Tamil Nadu, the gross mismanagement of rain water is there for all to see. A huge amount of rain water goes to the sea. Yet, there is some counter argument. The excess of salt in the seas will become very bad and the fishes will die if the rain water does not collect there. So, like what is going on in the Gulf, so goes the expert opinion, get a huge number of desalination plants in place and solve the water problem. Eminent economists like Dr Subramaniam Swamy have been talking about this for a very long time.
Which is correct? Will the ecological balance depend only on rain water going to sea? At least part of it? Do fishes also survive only because rain water gets mixed with sea water? Members who know the technical side of this may please respond.
