As a human being, I worry about my brethren/sisteren who'll find themselves thirsty and desperate.



That's a little melodramatic, given that water costs less than a penny a litre to make. Yes, there will be some problems getting ultra-cheap water in some places that want it for agriculture or industry. No, people will not be 'thirsty and desperate' unless they can't cough up a penny a day to buy some water, but then, they will also be hungry, cold, wet, etc., so compassionate human beings will have lots to worry about, but water won't be high on the list.
