Since 1970, worldwide water consumption has doubled, yet 1.3 billion people still don’t have access to clean water. The scarcity of clean water leaves hundreds of millions of people at risk of contracting deadly disease every year. Approximately 2.2 million people die annually from diseases related to contaminated drinking water and poor sanitation. There’s no vaccine that can solve this crisis: Only clean water, proper sanitation, and nutrition can prevent these deadly diseases and save lives.
A shortage of clean water has a direct impact on the health of a population and their survival. Northern Africa, India, and the Middle East suffer the most. Some of the world’s largest cities are also facing water stress, including Sau Paulo, Bangalore, Beijing, Cairo, Mexico City, Moscow, and Miami. The infrastructure and distribution of clean water ultimately controls population health and growth. The corporations and governments that control water sources ultimately have power over the survival of the population. It is easy to engineer a water shortage in order to control the behaviors of people and affect the population of a region. In geopolitical conflicts, water can be used as the ultimate bargaining chip. By 2030, the United Nations predicts that global demand for clean water will outpace supply by 40 percent!
Because 70 percent of the world’s precious water supply is used for agricultural purposes, any water shortage will also lead to food shortages. For some multinational corporations, this presents an opportunity to transform the region’s agriculture by selling drought-resistant, genetically modified seeds. In essence, water shortages are a business opportunity for seed developers.
Water is already a business opportunity for corporations like Nestle. Why is Nestle allowed to extract water from one area of the United States and then profit from its distribution worldwide? Why does the CEO of Nestle state that access to water is not a human right? Corporations such as Nestle are taking advantage of water supplies throughout the United States, leaving regions vulnerable to future shortages. Nestle has been extracting water from the Great Lakes and shipping it all the way to China. Unnatural distribution of water supplies will eventually escalate tensions throughout the world. Privatization of the water supply causes uneven distribution. Privatization of water was initiated by the World Bank and propelled by the United Nation’s Agenda 21. According to the 2007 United Nations Environment Program, local authorities, private enterprises, and communities are to delegate water resource management through a “water for profit” scheme. Why do you think governments have been criminalizing landowners for collecting rainwater on their own property?
When Bolivia defaulted on its debt obligations to the World Bank, the country’s water supplies went into receivership, causing water prices to go up 400 percent. Privatization of the water supply allows the elite to have easier access to water, while the poor suffer higher prices. There is no equal access. For example, in Lima, Peru, the elite pay 30 cents per cubic meter for clean tap water, leaving the poorest families with contaminated water at the price of three dollars per cubic meter.
If the rich can control the water supply, they can effectively secure their own future. In some areas in India, families may pay up to 25 percent of their income for water. When the elite control the water, they can control the economy and contrive water shortages to make the poor suffer, to make their population numbers dwindle.
