    If a machine could make water out of air but cost a lot of money, would you buy it?

    如果一臺機器可以用空氣制水,但要花很多錢,你會買它嗎?

    In very dry parts of California, some homeowners are doing just that.

    在加利福尼亞州非常干旱的地區,一些房主就是這樣做的。

    The air-to-water system works like an air conditioner by using coils to cool air.

    空氣-水系統的工作原理類似于空調,利用線圈來冷卻空氣。

    It then collects water and drops it in a container.

    然后它收集水并將其放入容器中。

    The water is then cleaned to make it safe to drink.

    然后對水進行凈化,使其可以安全飲用。

    "Our motto is, water from air is not magic, it is science, and that is really what we are doing with these machines," said Ted Bowman.

    泰德·鮑曼說:“我們的座右銘是,空氣中的水不是魔法,而是科學,這就是我們用這些機器真正所要做的?!?/p>

    He is a design engineer at Washington state-based Tsunami Products and helped to design the machine.

    他是華盛頓州Tsunami Products的一名設計工程師,幫助設計了這臺機器。

    The system is one of several that have been developed in recent years to remove water from the air.

    該系統是近年來開發的幾種從空氣中去除水分的系統之一。

    The machines are made for use at homes, offices, farms ... just about anywhere.

    這些機器是為家庭、辦公室、農場制造的。幾乎可以用于任何地方。

    The technology works especially well in foggy areas.

    這項技術在多霧地區運行得特別好。

    Machines come in different sizes.

    機器有不同的尺寸。

    The largest can produce about 8,600 liters of water a day.

    最大的一臺每天能生產大約8600升水。

    The machines, Bowman added, also operate well in any area with high humidity.

    鮑曼補充說,這種機器在任何高濕度地區也能很好地運行。

    This includes California's coastline.

    其中包括加利福尼亞州的海岸線。

    The machines are costly.

    這些機器很貴。

    Prices start at $30,000 and go as high as $200,000.

    價格從3萬美元起,最高可達20萬美元。

    Even though the cost is high, some homeowners in California are buying them to meet their water needs.

    盡管成本很高,加利福尼亞州的一些房主還是在購買它們來滿足他們的用水需求。

    California is experiencing one of the worst droughts in recent history.

    加利福尼亞州正在經歷近年來最嚴重的干旱之一。

    The water supply there is extremely low and people have been asked to save water.

    那里的供水極少,人們被要求節約用水。

    Don Johnson lives in California and bought the smallest machine.

    唐·約翰遜住在加利福尼亞州,他買了一臺最小的機器。

    It looks like a large air conditioning unit.

    它看起來像一個大型空調機組。

    He said he hoped it would produce enough water to keep his garden alive.

    他說他希望它能生產足夠的水來維持他的花園的生機。

    He found, however, that it produces more than enough water for use in his garden and house.

    然而,他發現它生產的水足以供他的花園和房子使用。

    "This machine will produce water for a lot less than you can buy bottled water ... for," he said.

    他說:“這臺機器生產水的成本要比你買瓶裝水的成本低得多……”。

    Johnson added that as the cost of water goes up, he thinks the machine will pay for itself.

    約翰遜補充說,隨著水價上漲,他認為這臺機器將會收回成本。

    Besides the high price, the machine also needs a lot of energy to run.

    除了價格高以外,機器運轉還需要大量的能源。

    But Johnson said the solar panels on the roof produce enough power to operate the machine without adding energy costs.

    但約翰遜表示,屋頂上的太陽能電池板產生的電力足以運行機器,而不會增加能源成本。

    Some experts say the technology makes sense for individual homeowners, especially in rural areas.

    一些專家說,這項技術對個人房主來說是有意義的,尤其是在農村地區。

    But it may not be a good solution for all of California.

    但對整個加利福尼亞州來說,這可能不是一個好的解決方案。

    One such expert is Helen Dahlke, a researcher with the University of California, Davis.

    加利福尼亞大學戴維斯分校的研究員海倫·達爾克就是這樣一位專家。

    She said the most important thing is to fight global warming to prevent future droughts.

    她說,最重要的事情是對抗全球變暖,以防止未來的干旱。

    She said the world needs to slow climate warming to really make a difference.

    她說,世界需要減緩氣候變暖,才能真正有所作為。
