Blue Gold — World Water Wars
In every corner of the globe, this culture is polluting, diverting, pumping and wasting our limited supply of fresh water at a crazy rate as population grows and technology escalates. The rampant over-development of agriculture, housing and industry increase the demands for fresh water well beyond the limited supply, resulting in the desertification of the Earth. Corporate giants force developing countries to privatise their water supply for profit, Wall Street investors target desalination and mass bulk-water export schemes, while corrupt governments use water for economic and political gain. Military control of water emerges and a new geo-political map and power structure forms, setting the stage for world water wars. Blue Gold follow numerous worldwide examples of people fighting for their basic right to water, from court cases to United Nations conventions to revised constitutions to local protests at grade schools to complete revolutions. A line is crossed when water is a commodity. Will you fight to stop it and protect it?
