Our Drinkable Water Supply Is Vanishing

We are faced with thoughtless development that paves flood plains and destroys wetlands; dams that displace native people and scar watersheds; unchecked industrial growth that pollutes water sources; and rising rates of consumption that nature can't match. Increasingly, we are also threatened by the wave of privatization that is sweeping across the world, turning water from a precious public resource into a commodity for economic gain.

Now the oil wars, then the water wars. Then the war for air. Not much left after that.

Maybe the demise of the "air wars" will signal the dawn of war for the sheer fucking hell of it.
