This documentary is required viewing for anyone even slightly interested in the future of the nation, their children, possibly even themselves. Once again, the business community has shown its face as self oriented, self inclined and soul-less as it goes after a buck at any price, including the price of its own existence, and keep in mind the toll a heavy population takes on the earth. Take a look…before your water is gone forever.
