Storyline

Wars of the future will be fought over water as they are over oil today, as the source of human survival enters the global marketplace and political arena. Corporate giants, private investors, and corrupt governments vie for control of our dwindling supply, prompting protests, lawsuits, and revolutions from citizens fighting for the right to survive. Past civilizations have collapsed from poor water management. Can the human race survive? Written by Sam Bozzo

Outlandish misrepresentation of facts
14 April 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Pollution of our fresh water supplies and water rights are extremely important subjects and need to be presented factually and honestly in order to maintain credibility. The subjects are too important to be confused with misrepresentation, misleading, and inflammatory commentary designed to arouse public opinion, and establish the film makers as experts and crusaders in a cause which I have been a part of for more than 35 years.

I am a professional environmental engineer working within the Potable Water Industry for my entire life. I have never seen such misrepresentations mixed with just enough true facts for the expressed purpose of attempting to make the entire movie believable. This should be listed as "fiction" not a documentary.

Talk about conspiracy theorists. This movie ranks up there with those that think the Moon Landing was faked, your neighbor is a space alien, or that Elvis is still alive and living with Marilyn Monroe in Queens.

This is 90-minutes of my life I wish I could get back.
