Atlas of hidden water may avert future conflict – environment – 24 October 2008 – New Scientist

Yeah right. Much better for understanding where future battlefields will be. After all, mapping out the entire world’s oil reserves did nothing to stop the oil wars wreaking havoc today. I’m sure all the Nestles of the world and other corporate water concerns will be using this UNESCO atlas in formulating their short and long-term strategies, with government rubber stamping along the way. (Since they’ve probably been doing it for years now to sell you bottled water.) I wouldn’t be surprised to find out if most of Ted Turner’s land purchases in the recent years, the ones that made him the largest landholder in the US, were selected for the aquifers they sit on.
