The drinking water problem

An interesting article on Alternet about the world’s drinking water supply. It talks about the problems we’re facing and will continue to face in the future.

Multinationals looking to cash in on the water business have also made giant inroads in selling bottled water in richer countries. Expensive marketing campaigns convince people that their tap water is unsafe to drink. Then, companies like Coke and Pepsi bottle municipal tap water and others like Nestle pilfer spring water from rural communities and resell it at huge profits.

The water crisis may be growing, but so is resistance to privatization as communities are fighting back against the corporate control of the world’s most vital resource.

Water really is the world’s most vital resource, which is why we need to use it wisely.
