On the other side of the Big Pond in the USA, Leonardo DiCaprio is developing his campaign to raise awareness about those (humans) in the World without access to clean water and he has, and I quote:
” signed a petition pressuring American President George W. Bush and other government leaders to commit to a legally binding United Nations treaty, which declares clean water as a basic human right”
It’s just strange to me that anyone would need to use pressure to get something as true as this acknowledged. The “No Clean Water – No Life” equation was probably ‘written’ by Nature over 400 Billion Years ago for this presently Blue Planet. In the big scheme of Earth things, it is a pivotal fact of reality. However, there’s no reason to believe that life cannot exist elsewhere in the universe without water.
There’s a DiCaprio presentation called ‘Water Planet’ that can be viewed on DiCaprio’s eco-site at http://www.leonardodicaprio.org
