Hi Aaron, thanks for raising these issues re: the tenuous situation of water security. All of your points are well taken. I am wondering how you see the role of multinational corporations in this issue? There has certainly been cases demonstrating that multinational corporations are exasperating the problem in some countries where water resources are already being challenged. To further complicate the issue is the debate between water as a right (and a universal common) and water as a marketable commodity. I'm sure you are well aware of the problems privatization causes, particularly for the poor. Considering the lessons you present, are there any solutions?
