Many people assume that when you apply salt to the landscape it just gets washed away and disappears.


No way! People really believe this!?

Fertilizers, ground water usage for irrigation(easily seen in the Central Valley if you fly up and down California, industrial activity, prevailing winds also blow west to east.

Look at the definition of what a salt is that was used in the OP.

The "warm" areas are largely agricultural and are or used to be industrial.

"In fact, Norwegian scientists studying U.S. soy found "excessive" levels of glyphosate inside of the food crop. Don't eat tofu? Doesn't matter: GE corn and soy fall under dozens of different ingredient names in most processed foods, such as mono-diglyceride, Soya, lecithin, textured vegetable protein, and more."

or even all the waste produced by humans.


Ahhh, there's the problem, stop eating processed foods filled with salt, and all the salt by-products won't be coming out of human waste.

I'm pretty sure that is taken out at the waste water treatment plant. Having said that, I don't recall it ever being mentioned when I used to work a one.
