Will that's enlightening. And here I though we in the US had cornered the market on Meglomaniac CEO's and along comes this guy wanting to take over the worlds water supply!
All he needs is a white cat and a secret undersea hideout.
Would one of the Brits on this forum please put in a call to 007.

He supports both dems and reps. They are the same to him. . .

A thoroughly nasty bit of work, but the logical extension of capitalism is just one company world wide. He reckons that cornering the worlds water is a great start.
Rupert has the same ideas.

Interesting, I haven't watched the video yet but this was a topic on talk radio here a few weeks ago. BC is the only province in Canada that does not have a water policy, Nestle is cashing in on this by extracting and selling huge amounts of water, for which it pays the government nothing, it's all free for them to exploit! The radio station I listen to while at work managed to get an executive on to talk about this, on the provision that they would not talk about their activities in Pakistani.

No love for these corporate cretins at all. :(

Everyone should come to that conclusion.

Same here, and neither of them acceptable.

They don't need to own the water, only the infrastructure. The current infrastructure is owned by the government because it was built by the government, but that was wrong, and besides the private sector can run it much more efficiently. So if they decide, as was once proposed, to blast a trench to divert the Snake into the Colorado, they'll just do it, without a bunch of public hearings and S.

Then they will very efficiently recover the costs, set a precedent and build incentive to do it again and again, a monument of American Pride and really, a moral victory for all mankind.

Long history. Wilshire stole lots of water for Los Angeles

Last time we talked about water , it was said that these water corporations owned the water that fell on your property , and that you couldn't trap and watertank the water that comes off the roof of your house and sheds.
Is that still the case ?.

That depends what part of the country that you live in.

Does that mean that the water 'owners' claim a share in the profits of crops/livestock grown with that water? Seems a logical step.

What a coincidence .
