Water likely to be main cause of conflict by 2015

According to Johann Harri in the independent today, sources of fresh water supplies are likley to become drastically reduced in the next 30 years, with the CIA predicting that by 2015 the main cause of war will be conflicts over sources of fresh water! What with the melting of ice caps many major cities across the globe will lose their main source of fresh water supply with rising sea levels resulting in the salination of other major supplies.

We better get a move on with becoming authors of our own future or else therell be no future to write!

Mos Def - New World Water

There's nothing more refreshing (that cool refreshing drink)

Than a cool crisp clean glass of water

On a warm summer's day (That cool refreshing drink)

Try it with your friends

New World Water make the tide rise high

Come in and it'll make your house go "Bye" (My house!)

Fools done upset the Old Man River

Made him carry slave ships and fed him dead nigga

Now his belly full and he about to flood somethin

So I'ma throw a rope that ain't tied to nothin

til your crew use the H2 in wise amounts since

it's the New World Water; and every drop counts

You can laugh and take it as a joke if you wanna

But it don't rain for four weeks some summers

And it's about to get real wild in the half

You be buying Evian just to take a fuckin bath

Heads is acting wild, sippin poor, puffin dank

Competin with the next man, but how your playa rank?

See I ain't got time try to be Big Hank,

Fuck a bank; I need a twenty-year water tank

Cause while these knuckleheads is out here sweatin they goods

The sun is sitting in the treetops burnin the woods

And as the flames from the blaze get higher and higher

They say, "Don't drink the water! We need it for the fire!"

New York is drinkin it (New World Water)

Now all of California is drinkin it (New World Water)

Way up north and down south is drinkin it (New World Water)

Used to have minerals and zinc in it (New World Water)

Now they say it got lead and stink in it (New World Water)

Four carbons and monoxide

Push the water table lopside

Used to be free now it cost you a fee

Cause all things fully loaded they roam cross the sea

Man, you gotta cook with it, bathe and clean with it (That's right)

When it's hot, summertime you fiend for it (Let em know)

You gotta put it in the iron you steamin with (That's right)

It's what they dress wounds and treat diseases with (Shout it out0

The rich and poor, black and white got need for it (That's right)

And everybody in the world can agree with this (Let em know)

Assumption promotes health and easiness (That's right)

Go too long without it on this earth and you leavin it (Shout it out)

Americans wastin it on some leisure shit (Say word?)

And other nations be desperately seekin it (Let em know)

Bacteria washing up on they beaches (Say word?)

Don't drink the water, son they can't wash they feet with it (Let em know)

Young babies and professional neediness (Say word?)

Epidemics hopppin up off the petri dish (Let em know)

Control centers try to play it all secretive (Say word?)

To avoid public panic and freakiness (Let em know)

There are places where TB is common as TV

Cause foreign-based companies go and get greedy

The type of cats who pollute the whole shore line

Have it purified, sell it for a dollar twenty-five

Now the world is drinkin it

Your moms, wife, and baby girl is drinkin it

Up north and down south is drinkin it

You just have to go to your sink for it

The cash registers is goin to chink for it

Four carbons and monoxide

Got the fish lookin cockeyed

Used to be free now it cost you a fee

Cause it's all about gettin that cash (Money)

Said it's all about gettin that cash (Money) (x9)

Johny cash (Money)

Roseland cash (Money)

Give me cash (Money)

Cold cash (Money)

(Repeat to fade)

Cash rules everything around me,

Move!

Mos Def kicked in the Hitch Hikers Guide grin but yes! I have heard about this! In Las Vegas they have water shortage and are rationing the water their! They have this law where they are not allowed to use water after 11am till 7pm because 111 heat evaporates the water fast! But if you go out and look around theirs ALWAYS people usings sprinklers, hoses, washing cars and so forth. Their is also a massive land rush in LV and housing is spreading so fast that they are mowing down mountians so they can build more houses on the land! So more and more water is being consumed each day! Las Vegas is a fucked up place! Its bloody stupid! Really pisses me off! Uhm, but has anyone ever seen Tank Girl!? Thats such a cool film!
