What they really need to do is contact Flibe Energy about building them a fleet of Liquid Fluoride Thorium Reactors. LFTRs operate at a high enough temperature that Brayton Cycle turbines can be used. Why is that important? Because they can dump their waste heat to air, no cooling water required. But even better, they can dump their waste heat EFFECTIVELY to a distillation unit and PRODUCE fresh water. But are important to a desert country like Jordan.

That should have been "BOTH are important to a desert country like Jordan".
