Water: Blue Gold: "There are untold profits to be made from controlling the simplest and most vital ingredient of our survival: water. The only question, from a profit standpoint, is why it has taken this long."

"The "water rush" is likely to turn into one of the most volatile and potentially galvanizing issues of the 21st century. "This is an incredible struggle, and yet it's still so far below the radar that we're trying to give it a voice," Kaufman says. "People are already willing to die for [water], but it's something that many of us still take for granted." The grab for corporate control of water is indeed already here in our own backyards."
