I located this intriuging idea from another alternate news website. Worth reposting, I figured.

Quantum of Solace--
"Bond battles wealthy businessman Dominic Greene, a member of the Quantum organization, posing as an environmentalist who intends to stage a coup d'état in Bolivia to seize control of the nation's water supply."

---------------------------------------------------------------------------


The Great Man-Made River (GMR, النهر الصناعي العظيم) is a network of pipes that supplies water to the Sahara Desert in Libya, from the Nubian Sandstone Aquifer System fossil aquifer. It is the world's largest irrigation project According to its website, it is the largest underground network of pipes and aqueducts in the world. It consists of more than 1,300 wells, most more than 500 m deep, and supplies 6,500,000 m³ of fresh water per day to the cities of Tripoli, Benghazi, Sirt and elsewhere. Muammar al-Gaddafi has described it as the "Eighth Wonder of the World.

Al Qassam Website/Agencies - Dr. Ghazi Al-Rabab’ah, a professor of political science at the university of Jordan, stated Saturday that Israel’s future wars against Arab countries would be over water resources. In a press statement to the Jordanian Al-Arab Alyawm newspaper, Rabab’ah said that the first war would be in the Jordan basin area in the Lebanese Shebaa farms. He added that Israel also steals Gaza water resources and sends salt contaminated water from Tiberias lake to Gaza.


Water shortages are likely to be trigger for wars, says UN chief Ban Ki Moon



A struggle by nations to secure sources of clean water will be “potent fuel” for war, the first Asia-Pacific Water Summit heard yesterday. The Secretary-General of the United Nations, Ban Ki Moon, told delegates from across the region that the planet faced a water crisis that was especially troubling for Asia. High population growth, rising consumption, pollution and poor water management posed significant threats, he said, adding that climate change was also making “a bad situation worse”.

I guess I'm not surprised - the way we've been treating this planet - Hydro-fracing, radiation "leaks" , oil spills, corexit.

Very interesting post. Water rights have caused many wars. Its a very common and under reported problem. What I don't understand is why don't we earth people start using desalinization technology? I know its expensive but hey, what isn't? Water in the desert is going to be expensive, no matter where it comes from.

Imagine what a hydrated Africa could become. Irrigation, crops, industry, cheap labor, and also oil. Africa could become a powerful country. Better disrupt any cohesive efforts for Ghaddafi to organize Africa's resources and become a developed (if socialistic) country.

Generally, water from the ground is naturally filtered. Not always of course, but when the concern is airborne toxins, there's no better place to tap than the ground.
