Blue Gold: World Water Wars Movie and Discussion
August 29, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm$5
Global Warming is an issue of how we live, and the water crisis is an issue of if we live. Blue Gold: World Water Wars sheds light on the world’s rapidly approaching water crisis and suggests that wars of the future will be fought over water, as they are fought today over oil. The world’s fresh water is disappearing. As we pollute and waste away our very limited supply, corporate giants are working to make the building block of our globe a commodity, privatizing developing countries’ fresh water. In the midst of this, military control of water is rising, setting the stage for world water wars. This international award-winning film follows various examples of people fighting back against the powers that be. As the specters of drought and death loom, the film finds people willing to risk everything for their right to water and their right to survive. A discussion will follow the movie. The event is hosted by Pat Roskin.
