With global water resources dwindling and the threat of worldwide drought, multinational corporations are buying up water utilities left and right. Monopolized privatization of this vital resource consistently results in hiked rates and the bottling of water for export and sale on the open market. Meanwhile advertising campaigns have convinced the masses bottled water is better despite costing consumers 2,000 times the price of tap, for lower quality. California's desertification isn't the only small glimpse into the world water crisis - it is now illegal to collect rainwater in several US States. This all comes to a head as the Carlyle group attempts to sell the water utility of Missoula, Montana; home to the Outer Limits. Shockingly, the man responsible for Bolivia's water crisis with Bechtel is the man closing the deal in Missoula: Robert Dove. In this episode, we explore how Missoula's situation is a fitting microcosm for the corporate takeover of water resources everywhere.
