E-M:/ PBS tonight on Water



-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Enviro-Mich message from "Link, Terry" <link@mail.lib.msu.edu>
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Just a reminder that PBS stations are showing on their POV show tonight (on WKAT at 10:00p.m.) a program called "Thirst" that looks at 

"As revealed in "Thirst," the world is poised on the brink of epochal changes in how water is stored, used, and valued. Will these changes provide clean water to the billions of people who need it? Or save the child who dies every eight seconds from contaminated water? Examining water conflicts on three continents, "Thirst" shows that popular opposition to the privatization of water sparks remarkable coalitions that cross partisan lines. When it comes to water, many people demand local control and fear the arrival of multinational corporations with large lobbying budgets and little local loyalty."
