This paper explains that experts around the world are warning of a serious and possible deadly world water crisis in the future if serious efforts are not undertaken to deal with it today. The author points out that the problems in Mexico have several facets: distribution, sanitation, earthquake damage, and the draining off of water from Mexico by Texas farmlands without paying for it. The paper concludes that, whether it is converting saltwater to fresh water, removing contamination from water sources, regulating the sale and cost of available water, or a combination of all efforts, the next few decades will be the determining factor in the fate of the world through the decisions made today regarding water.

In Summary

From the Paper:

"Measures are currently underway to change the water industry in Mexico. One of the things that is being discussed is the charging of agricultural business for the purpose of supporting the industry. Texas, which is in the United States draws much of its farmland water from Mexico supplies. Add to this the fact that Mexico is in an extremely dry climate and must use significant water to grow its own food supply and it is evident that agricultural businesses are contributing to the depletion of the water supply. Current legislation is moving through the process to begin charging these companies for the water that they are using for their food production."
