anyone noticed the cover story of the current issue of Newsweek?

http://www.newsweek.com/2010/10/08/water-shortages-map.html

[I know that Newsweek has been discredited by the far right as a propoganda tool of the obama/soros administration.....]

Anyway, along with my obsession regarding quality farmland, I'm a big believer in the future value of safe, clean water. Not sure how soon it will happen, but the business of food/land/water will either come to dominate the world markets, or, worst case, be the cause for future wars.

Hopefully, open conflict can be avoided, but highly volatile price moves will lead to investment opportunities. [although mentioned in the article, I just don't see the idea of water as a "right" gaining much traction in today's 'freedom of opportunity" mindset}

most investment forums discuss the companies that make valves, or build treatment facilities, etc. I'm still looking more at the source; property w/ water rights.
