"Nestle Corporation is known for selling chocolate, advocating the privatization of clean water (should not be a human right), child slave labor in Africa, controlling a large portion of the food supply and multiple bottled water brands (which they are making a shocking killing off of). They acquired rights from the Department of Natural Resources in Michigan to pump water out of Michigan for 99 years for just under $70,000. That’s right, for under $70,000 US dollars they have rights to pump hundreds of thousands of gallons of water out of Michigan as well as many other states each and every single day. According to the documentary film “Flow: For Love Of Water” the company profits approximately 1.8 Million dollars per day from its water bottling plants.
This is happening in CA too. Its not all environmental, these companies (Nestle is not the only one) have paid for rights to pump not only ground water but also allowed to pump out the aquafers (deep water souces well below the ground water level)
Just know there is much more going on besides a 'drought'... and it ain't because of 'global warming'! and due to all the fracking going on in CA too... that ground water and below is getting contaminated too! How's yer beer taste now?!
