By my understanding of desalination, you take sea-water and remove the salt, no?

This makes fresh, drink water, no?

Does this mean that all of the companies that use desalination keep reducing the amount of sea water and increasing the amount of fresh water?

Are there any environmental consequences of this?

Is this a misunderstanding or am I looking past something here?

What you are missing is that more fresh water enters the oceans every day than we could possibly take back out via desalinazation. Water removed from the oceans and purified gets used and, one way or another, ends back in the system where it eventually will make it's way back into the oceans.
