Environmental activists say water is the new oil.  The World Water Forum revealed that clean, fresh water supplies are dwindling due to global warming. Scientists are predicting a rise in sea level  will affect access to clean water. They say the rise in sea level could increase salination of natural underground reservoirs.

More than a billion people lack access to clean water and 2.5 billion are without water for sanitation. And this results in 80% of all disease.
