This might just work...

Step 1- Valve 1 opens and sea water flows through a semi-permeable filter, past Turbine 1 into Holding Chamber 1

Step 2- Valve 1 closes, a vacuum pump powered by Turbine 1 lowers atmospheric pressure in the holding chamber. This lowers the

boiling point of the water.

Step 3- Solar rays are concentrated from 1/multiple large surface area convex lenses into the holding chamber vaporizing the water

Step 4- Steam moves past Turbine 2 and into a condensing chamber. The condensing chamber is cooled by sea-water pulled into coils by the vacuum pump

Step 5- Condensing chamber is built on a slight decline from Turbine 2. Condensed water flows away from Turbine 2 into a second Holding Chamber until it is needed in the Electrolysis Chamber.

Step 6- Valves 2 and 3 open allowing collected water to flow past Turbine 3 into the electrolysis chamber. Electricity from Turbines 1-3 are fed into a battery connected to the cathode and anode of the electrolysis chamber.

Step 7- Valves 2 and 3 close insuring all gasses flow through proper pipes.

Step 8- Electricity from all 3 Turbines is used to turn the collected water into Hydrogen and Oxygen gas.

Current solar energy technology focuses on the photovoltaic effect of light hitting a semiconductor. The semiconductor used is Silicon, and although Silicon is one of the most abundant elements on earth it is fairly expensive to produce a pure product from Silica. Solar Panels require 99% purity in the Silicon to function efficiently therefore the panels are fairly expensive. Using a convex lens would still utilize the abundant Silica reserves of our planet while not needing to be processed to 99% purity.

Another current problem with our energy supplies is transporting the energy. Electricity dissipates fairly quickly over large distances. Fuel does not. By using the energy generated by the turbines to turn H20 into Hydrogen and Oxygen, the energy is stored as Hydrogen Gas ready to combust. By transporting the Oxygen side by side with the Hydrogen we can easily purely combust the hydrogen back into water. By using this combustion to spin multiple turbines, energy is created with the only bi-product being fresh water.

Seeing as our planet always seems to be low on fresh water and energy, this seems like it might be a good idea... If instituted on a large scale this would transfer heat that would be going into our oceans into energy and start to un-do the damage we've done to our climate. It would also reduce CO2 emissions by allowing us to drastically reduce our burning of fossil fuels. It would provide water to arid regions and allow for large scale farming in all parts of the world.

With unprecedented world-wide farming and forestation from literally endless supplies of water we could reverse the elevated levels of CO2 whether they be human caused or naturally increasing.

Maybe this won't work, but I really think it can. Anyone wanna help me find out?
