We have self-serving politicians that think nothing of selling off our state to make a quick buck for themselves. Latest example? Florida only has water to last until '13. The gov't just sold off rights to mine the water to a water bottling company in California. :mad:
Canadians are in the same boat with having rights to their water sold to the States. So basically may even be worse off.

The planet is made up of 70% water on the surface.

But only 0.3% of that is fresh.

There will be a major issue of this in the future. There will be water riots. There will be wars fought over it in the future.

it sounds extreme now, but I can see that happening. Some of it is already happening in parts of drought stricken Africa.

Yeah. I think i already mentioned that Kenya is in its third consecutive year of drought?

I read it somewhere and it stuck in my head.
