Summary
In every corner of the globe, we are polluting, diverting, pumping, and wasting our limited supply of fresh water at an expediential level as population and technology grows. The rampant overdevelopment of agriculture, housing and industry increase the demands for fresh water well beyond the finite 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. 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. We follow numerous worldwide examples of people fighting for their basic right to water, from court cases to violent revolutions to U.N. conventions to revised constitutions to local protests at grade schools. As Maude Barlow proclaims, This is our revolution, this is our war". A line is crossed as water becomes a commodity. Will we survive? Based on the groundbreaking book Blue Gold; The Fight to Stop the Corporate Theft of the World's Water by Maude Barlow and Tony Clarke and narrated by Malcolm McDowell. Executive produced by Mark Achbar (The Corporation)
