Mark also talks about the thwarted bomb plot in Yemen and says that whoever leaked the information to the press is partaking in treason. There's no good to come out of releasing details of the intelligent operation to the public. We need to know who leaked it and for what reason other than political gain.
David Malone http://golemxiv-credo.blogspot.com author of The Debt Generation, http://www.debtgeneration.org directs and presents this film, It is the first part of a documentary first shown on BBC4 Television in the UK in September 2008. The film was first broadcast 2 days after the collapse of Lehman brothers at the start of the financial crisis. It looks at the discoveries in mathematics during the 20th Century which have challenged the view that the world is an essentially knowable and therefore controllable place. The film focuses on the economy and the environment and suggests that ideas about unpredictability, the butterfly effect and tipping points, stemming from mathematics, are part of what underlie some modern anxieties about the world we live in.
Mark Heywood tells a tale of two countries: China and South Africa and looks at what the cost of a lack of leadership around HIV/AIDS meant in South Africa and what a lack of political leadership can mean in China in the next few years.
In every corner of the globe, we are polluting, diverting, pumping, and wasting our limited supply of fresh water at an exponential level as population and technology grows, resulting in the desertification of the earth.
Corporate giants profit by forcing developing countries to privatize their shrinking water supply. Wall Street investors target desalination and mass bulk water export schemes to turn a global catastrophe into a product. Corrupt governments use water for economic and political gain, military control of water emerges, and a new geopolitical map and power structure forms, setting the stage for world water wars.
The good news is that people everywhere have fought and will continue fighting for their basic right to water, from Michigan court cases to violent Bolivian revolutions, from Mexican awareness Caravans (right) to Maine citizens dumping bottle water back into their river (above left), or even third graders protesting in grade school - People fight, because they must.
En el futuro las guerras no se librarán por el petróleo, sino por algo mucho más básico y necesario para la vida: el agua.
Gigantes corporativos, inversores privados y gobiernos corruptos compiten ya hoy por el control de nuestros suministros de agua fresca que cada vez son más escasos. Este documental, basado en el conocido libro Oro azul de Maude Barlow y Tony Clarke, demostrará cómo el planeta se acerca rápida y peligrosamente a una crisis mundial por el agua, mientras la fuente de vida por excelencia entre a formar parte de un mercado global y sea asunto de disputas en la arena política.

STATEMENT FROM THE FILMMAKER:
Dear Torrent users,
I thank all of you for your interest in my film. When I read the book Blue Gold, I knew immediately I must utilize my film talents to relay the urgency of prioritizing our fresh water management for the survival of our race. I had no idea of the financial and physical risks that making this film would entail at the time, and if I did I honestly would not have made the film. Luckily for the world, the film exists, and so it is my goal to follow the advise of the first press review which proclaimed "Every person on the planet must see this film". In this respect I thank godcanjudgeme for uploading this torrent and bringing a new audience to the film.
I have seen film festival audiences around the world transformed by the stories of the heroes of the water wars. I am thrilled that in the US and Canada the DVD is available via http://shoppbs.org and http://amazon.ca respectively. I respect the internet community that chooses to view films through torrents like this for whatever reason. In fact my first documentary, Hackers Wanted, focuses on the philosophy of true hackers and their journeys exploring cyberspace.
It is important to understand that independent films costs a great deal of personal finances to create, in this case over $100,000. In order that I may make other films in the future, I must at least make my money back. I respectfully ask that if you download the film you consider donating $5-$10 to the further publicity of the film via PayPal on my site http://www.bluegold-worldwaterwars.com. Also consider reviewing the film favorably on IMDB and recommending that others buy the DVD.
