Web Sites: Blue Gold: World Water Wars
Why I am recommending Blue Gold:
Because the earth is fast becoming a desert unless we stop and start changing our behavior. The water shortage issue is a BIG issue that affects each and every one of us.
Blue Gold: World Water Wars is an important film that delivers a powerful message, created by an inspiring team of people.
From the Website:
In every corner of the globe, we are polluting, diverting, pumping, and wasting our limited supply of fresh water at an exponential level as population and technology grows, resulting in the desertification of the earth.
Corporate giants profit by forcing developing countries to privatize their shrinking water supply. Wall Street investors target desalination and mass bulk water export schemes to turn a global catastrophe into a product. Corrupt governments use water for economic and political gain, military control of water emerges, and a new geopolitical map and power structure forms, setting the stage for world water wars.
The good news is that people everywhere have fought and will continue fighting for their basic right to water, from Michigan court cases to violent Bolivian revolutions, from Mexican awareness Caravans (right) to Maine citizens dumping bottle water back into their river (above left), or even third graders protesting in grade school -
Water is a basic human right, the right to survive. "Blue Gold" reports on various powers trying to take control of the public's water for profit and control. These powers fail to realize that people will not allow their water to be taken.
People fight, because they must.
