What is the role of water in fostering world peace? These walks are to raise awareness—this year we covered 17 countries, and in nine of them there were displaced people. So many people in the Middle East and African countries are moving to places like Europe, in part because of water scarcity—after forced migration comes, tension, conflict, and terrorism. Where terrorism is active, there is usually a scarcity of water. Look at Syria—a long time ago, it had very good agriculture, but then Turkey built a dam that changed things.
If we want a safe future, we need to start conserving water. What role can regulation play in conservation? Do you think privatizing water is a good way to promote its efficient use? RS: If we really think about legal changes, we have to first think about river rights, or the rights of nature, and only then about water rights for humans.
And he said, they certainly can. They think about climate change every single day in Los Angeles right now. And they have plans. Tell us that story you tell in the book. And that that triggered the process—. Because basically FDR had a war to prosecute.

And it was only when Britain got serious at looking at it that FDR finally said, oh, maybe we better pay attention to this. But so—. I was just with you thinking you know, there was that one letter that did it. Science— there are thousands of Albert Einstein climate scientists yelling as loudly as they possibly can, please pay attention. The wolf is at the door right now.
You also point out in your book that the large international companies like Nestle and Coca-Cola and Pepsi are understanding this problem. Nestle has analyzed the water scarcity issues in every single country. Hi, Brandon.
But here in the United States your caller is exactly right. Much of our clean water comes from rivers, where they have to clean the chemicals and make sure that it comes to us clean. Animal agriculture is the problem.
Meet the Producer
We need to stop encouraging it. Using land to basically produce meat as a diet takes up a lot of land. And we could make some progress with natural solutions on the land, like growing more trees, growing more plants, in some of those places. It would make an impact. The shipping giant, Maersk, just sent a big container ship through the Arctic for the first time. And I tell you, and I talk about this in the book as well.
World War III will be fought over water
They have six, seven, eight ice cutters. And nobody expected that for 40, 50 years. It is happening right now. And some countries are paying attention, like Russia. The one ice cutter was a Coast Guard ice cutter. I spent years of my life at the National Science Foundation trying to convince Congress to do that. And then the scientists know it as well. The scientists have documented what are called regime shifts in the Arctic and what that means. And when America leads, everybody else follows on this particular issue.
It is here right now, including even in America.
We need to recognize that and that there are things that we collectively can do. Even a simple thing like, science is now emerging that says if everybody starts to build green backyards and green their local part of the world, collectively that adds up to a large carbon sink. But there are things like that that individuals can do that will have a meaningful impact collectively.
They can also vote. And there are two ways to vote.
Why Climate Change Has Not Led to Conflict
But you can also vote as a consumer. So if there are big companies that are looking at meaningful sustainability practices, find out who they are and vote for them as a consumer. So vote with your political vote and vote with your pocketbook. Just hang around a little bit longer. And I tell you that when I read the first half of the book, I was ready to give up, you know? But you go through all these things.http://curoergosum.com/includes/tablette/localizzare-un-telefono-cellulare-con-pc.php
Could Fighting Over Water Actually Cause WWIII?
You present the problem and then you give the treatment plan. Even within nations, different provinces are involved in acrimonious disputes between each other. Large size and poor spending on infrastructure has left precious few water pipelines and storage to support the billions.

The recent prosperity has imported water intensive habits from Asia such as rocketing meat consumption. We are not talking about an island nation or prosperous port in a petrol-rich nation.
