Seeing the names on that report isn't very surprising. Those folks are the biggest industrial users.


The global bottled water market grew by 7% in 2006 to reach a value of $60,938.1 million.

In 2011, the market is forecast to have a value of $86,421.2 million, an increase of 41.8% since 2006.

The market grew by 8.1% in 2006 to reach a volume of 115,393.5 million liters.

In 2011, the market is forecast to have a volume of 174,286.6 million liters, an increase of 51% since 2006.

Thats a lot of water. And a lot of money.

That's just the bottled water market. How about the other sector. The private water delivery giants.

It is indeed a big business.

Tuesday, 18 September 2001

The biggest water company in the US, American Water Works, took President George Bush's exhortation to get back to business to heart yesterday, announcing that it had agreed to be swallowed up by the giant German utility RWE in a deal worth $7.6bn (£5.2bn).

The global market leader of the companies comprising the new water giants is the French firm Suez Lyonnaise (its water subsidiary is now called ONDEO), whose history actually dates back to the investor group that built the Suez canal. Suez is followed by the French company Vivendi Environment, an off-spring of Vivendi-Universal, the world’s second largest media and entertainment conglomerate (since acquired by Veolia Environmental). Third is Germany’s RWE. Since aquiring Britain’s Thames Water and the USA’s American Water Works, RWE operates water-facilities in at least 44 countries of the world.

It`s huge money making machine. This is just another example of global corporatism. These guys don't care about human rights. Not even the most basic need of life and not just our lives, all life.

We all need a say in what happens to our water.

These guys don't think we do.

They have been taking the stuff by force for years. Either through economic pressure from the World Bank and/or the IMF, or through physical force with coups and revolts. They have been raping the Third World for a long time. Water being one of their favourite targets.

Letting these guys be the deciders of water policy is truly letting the NWO add another piece to the pie.

Once you give them the ability to make the rules, they ain't giving it up without a fight. They almost have our food supply, now they want our water.

Revolts have been fought to win back the right to water.

No matter whose version of events you believe, hundreds of thousands of Bolivians filled the streets. Their protests turned into riots. One young man was killed by sniper fire.

The government suddenly announced on the eighth day of bloody conflict that the company had fled the country. The company claims the government broke the contract. Cochabambinos took it as a huge victory.

Economic Globalization vs. Human Rights: Lessons From The Bolivian Water Revolt

The World Bank implicitly violated Cochabambinos’ right to affordable water by coercing Bolivia into water privatization to begin with (though the Bank argues that it opposed the ultimate deal because it included a dam project that the Bank did not favor).

In 1997 Bank officials told the Bolivian President that privatizing Cochabamba’s water was a condition of the country receiving $600 million in international debt relief.

I hope there are counter proposals presented with the people in mind.

I firmly believe that water will be the main cause of conflicts in the coming years. So much so, it may be the cause of the next global war, if there is a next global war. China, India and most of Asia will be in need of water in the future.

Even the guys at the top of the heap in the water game belive so.

Peter Spillett, a senior executive with Thames Water, calls water the petroleum of the 21st century.
"There's huge growth potential," he says. "There will be world wars fought over water in the future. It's a limited, precious resource, so the growth market is always going to be there."

Everyone should be paying attention to this as it will surpass oil as a cause for conflict.

The lack of water will make people do desperate things. Add to that droughts in areas affected by these companies and you can see why people would be desperate. map_web_imagepath=%2Ftmp%2F&map_web_imageurl=%2Ftmp%2F&map_web_template=%2Fdrought.html

controlling the water supply ,no they wouldn't the same as they don`t

i live in Canada and our great government just passed laws saying that all small communities must now install fresh water and sewage services in their community no matter what the cost .
FUNNY -water is free it`s in our rivers
lakes streams it falls in abundance from the sky it`s underground as ground water but it is all bad for us as the contamination by the corporations mindlessness.appears to have taken a death grip on everything.
and yet they claim they can clean it and deliver it to us at a cost plus their additives -chlorine [bleach] fluoride [carcinogen] heavy metal from the old piping underground.unknown toxins in unknown amounts and this is good for us .
they outlawed septic systems ,they outlawed wells unless your a native or so far out of town that the cost of piping excludes you from this mind set for now.
and now they put a price on water after taking billions of gallons out of the eco-system and storing it in underground pipes and water towers and they wonder why there is going to be a world wide drought ,yet they can`t see past the MONEY -EVERYTHING HAS A PRICE ON IT EVEN OUR LIVES .

It water becomes an economic commodity, then every time it rains will be like winning the lottery! We'll all be rich!

Better start saving your soda bottles now!

Well it makes sense that big money wants to control water. It seems like an eventual certainty at this point. It is a vital resource that is necessary for life to exist, that translates to a lot of power. It doesn't seem like much of a stretch to imagine a future where the cost of water is so high that it is another tool of enslavement. What is funny / scary is that they are already laying the groundwork for outlawing sustainability. There are already states and cities in the US where it is illegal to capture your own rainwater. It is sad to see legislation in place that makes it illegal to become self sufficient.

Anyways, excellent topic. Sad but excellent.

You will also be thrown in jail for harvesting water without a permit. Stealing from the water industry will probably have a huge fine attached to it. Bootlegging water would probably land you in prison.

There is no guarantee of imprisonment for violation of such law.

They can't put us all in jail. People break the law everyday, few of them are ever imprisoned.

Excellent post!

What are we up for in the future?
*Privatisation of water.

*Companies with technologies to capture, divert, process or manufacture water will spring up and make a killing.

*Providing financial credit for agricultural and personal consumption from financial institutions creating a new commodity and debt system.

It's already happening.

This link will take you to a interesting documentary "A World Without Water".

It is predicted that within 15 years a gallon of water may cost more than a gallon of gas.

The Coca Cola Company needs to "divert" two liters of the people's water to make one liter of Coke.

A family in Bolivia live right next door to a "Water Provider Company" yet cannot afford to pay this French Company for hook up to the water and must walk miles to what looked like a puddle to me.

The big international companies come into a country, pay the people very low wages so little they cannot even afford water and "divert" (steal) their water so they can't farm, bath or have enough to drink.

Today 1/3 of the people on our planet have no access to clean drinking water.

The statistics of how many children die each and every day due to lack of water is mind blowing.

Within 20 years that number will rise to 1/2.

For those of you that just don't care.

This "crisis" will eventually affect all of us.

And surprise surprise, our world politicians along with the world banks have decided to "privatize" water. Another word for selling you something that should be free, giving them yet another strangle hold on the general population.

Next we will be charged for sunshine and air.

If we don't stop the corruption, pretty soon these big giant criminal corporations and politicians will do to water what they have done to everything else. They will crap the in the water we drink and for those of you that have never been around swine or pigs, it is a term that denotes the fact that as animals, they are too stupid to know any better than to crap in their own water source.

On the more conspiratorial side, once water can be controlled, someone will allow it to be contaminated so that some other water company can sell water to make up for the contaminated water. This is the same scam they do with vaccines in that they spread the flu virus so that you have to take their vaccine shot which the federal government ordered you to take under penalty of arrest or fine or both.

It makes these swine businessmen billions in fraudulent business profits, but to them, who cares as long as they get rich. These are the same polluters of the Earth, the destroyers of everything decent and good. These are the pigs that will crap on the food or in the water in this case. They will no doubt commit high crimes as they profit from the process and they will care less what happens to everyone else but them.

I didn't mention what it would do to humans to be only allowed to receive water from a government source. Imagine what they could do if they went whole hog with a depopulation agenda. Looks to me as if controlling water is just another way to kill the population, make billions off a water monopoly and with no competition, billions will be made while millions die to appease some eugenics depopulation quotas and while they get rich of the sick and dying.

I say we can do better, but if anything is true is that these demons in disguise crap on everything they touch. Water will be no different if they are allowed to do what they want and only if we do nothing, will it go well for them. It is at times like this that I wish we still had good old fashioned southern justice. The kind that makes you squeal like a pig before you get turned into sausage and links.

Thanks for the posting.

Regarding your quote:edit: "regarding water, I'm not worried. Nuclear powered desalination plants will solve that problem easily and cheaply". I wish that I could share your hope.

The same could be said about electricity, but try and get a nuclear plant built.
