There is an AP story in the Detroit Free Press today on global water
purity and scarcity problems, as presented at the United Nations
International Conference on Water and Sustainable Development. The
article summarizes the presentation of Abu Zeid of the World Water
Council, saying that approx. 1.2 billion people lack access to clean water
now, and 5 to 10 million people (mostly poor women and children) die
each year from water-borne diseases. The article also mentions the
uneven consumption of water globally. The article is online at:
