Why can't we manufacture water?

 But this issue is nothing new for other, less developed nations. For centuries, clean drinking water has been hard to come by for many populations, especially the poor. In some areas, water may be available, but it's often disease-ridden, and drinking it can be fatal. In other areas, a viable water supply is sim­ply not available at all.

­A 2006 United Nations report estimated that as much as 20 percent of the world's population doesn't have access to clean drinking water [source: BBC]. This leads us to wonder: If we need it so badly, why can't we jus­t make it?

­Water is made of two hydrogen atoms attached to an oxygen atom.

Manufacture water? We're manufacturing so much water right now that global warming alarmists are going crazy with their stupid global warming warnings.

Did you ever hear of a steam engine? Well, that's what every internal combustion car engine is. Cars burn gasoline. The power in cars comes from the steam tha is produced as a by-product of the gasoline that is burned in the engine!

If a car engine burned gasoline 100% clean, there would be basically two items produced - carbon dioxide, and water in the form of steam. Yet all the steam produced by gasoline engines around the world isn't near enough to stave off the water shortages. So, the creation of significant amounts of water would be a REALLY GIGANTIC project. We would have to burn lots more gasoline, and produce lots more CO2 by-product.

This brings us back to global warming. We need to be producing the greenhouse effect and global warming just so that we get more WATER.
