Population growth, pollution and scarcity are turning water into the oil of the 21st century. Global corporations are rushing to gain control of this dwindling natural resource, producing intense conflict in the U.S. and worldwide, where people are dying in battles over control of water. The world is poised on the brink of epochal changes in how water is stored, used and valued. Will these changes provide clean water to the billions who need it or save the children dying from contaminated water? Thirst shows that popular opposition to the privatization of water sparks remarkable coalitions that cross partisan lines.
