Blue Gold : World Water Wars (Official Full Length Film) - #WATERisLIFE #MedicineWaters #IdleNoMore

Please visit www.bluegold-worldwaterwars.com and consider donating to the filmmaker if you enjoyed the film!

Wars of the future will be fought over water as they are over oil today, as the source of human survival enters the global marketplace and political arena. Corporate giants, private investors, and corrupt governments vie for control of our dwindling supply, prompting protests, lawsuits, and revolutions from citizens fighting for the right to survive. Past civilizations have collapsed from poor water management. Can the human race survive?

Award-winning featured documentary narrated by Malcolm McDowell. Global Warming is an issue of 'how' we live, the water crisis is an issue of 'if' we live. DVD at www.bluegold-worldwaterwars.com

Susan Grigsby @sksgrigsby's curator insight, August 21, 2013 8:33 AM
