According to this documentary,
many wars will be fought in the future, in the name of Water.

This necessity for humans is owned by corporate giants, private investors and corrupt governments; each attempting to make profit.

Because of their decision, many civilizations are going through hardships. Very soon, however, it will be our turn to suffer.
As Maude Barlow proclaims, “This is our revolution, this is our war”.
It also analyzes the failed solutions we have attempted to use to solve this water crisis
Gives cheap alternative solutions

KEY QUESTIONS:
What can we do to prevent the world’s fresh water supply from disappearing?

What should be done
: Conserve water.
Why should it be done
: There is already not enough water of the form and quality we need, and this problem is not likely to be solved soon.

When should it be done
: Within 50 years
Who should do it
: Everyone

THESIS
This is both a fact and action documentary. It outlines the problems facing the water shortages and it gives realistic solutions.


APPEALS
Fact
: Experts analyze the water problem.
Emotion
: Shows poor people in other parts of the world that don’t have fresh water.
Cause/Effect
: Our actions today affect our water supply in the future.
Legal
: The government privatizes the water to big corporations.

Main Causes
Solution:
How to Stop Privatization of
Water
:
- Ensure there is water around the home so we do not demand markets to do so for us.

How to Make Sure
Water
Will be Abundant:
BLUE ALTERNATIVE PROJECT
- Return water to its natural cycle by irrigating the land.
- Tricking water into staying in holes and not losing its essence and nutrients in salt water.

This solution is better than any other because:
- it is a very CHEAP solution
- allows the soil to replenish itself
- can create millions of jobs for people


Main Causes
Water being polluted by agriculturers using chemicals to increase farming productivity. -> Leads to polluted water.

Fresh water cumulates in ocean -> causes change of structure of Earth's crust -> causes earthquakes and tsunamis.

This poor quality of
water
causes..
a rise in miscarriage
less sperm counts in men
creates cholera
kills more children than malaria, AIDS and wars.
What I learned was
:
Kenya pays more for water then for Coca-Cola
When they turn on the tap water, sometimes only air comes out and they are still charged.

What surprised us
:
how serious the problem has become.


What We Liked:
What we liked was how effective and informative the documentary was.
In a perfect world, people would not be so greedy and money would not be an issue

The conflict between individuals and the environment
