Is water about Peace, Politics, Power, or all of the above?

Are the wars already starting?
For as much attention, bloodshed, and money that has been spent on the wars over oil- I think they pale in comparison by what’s going to happen in the future over Water.
As the world evolves, so grows our needs and desires for water.

I have the privilege and opportunity to speak tonight at Summit DC10 (www.summitseries.com).  If you have a really big idea, and have 750 people hanging on your words, how do you condense that into two minutes?
