The move to commodify depleting global water supplies is wrong--ethically, environmentally, and socially.  It ensures that decisions regarding the allocation of water center almost exclusively o­n commercial, not environmental or social, considerations.  Corporate shareholders seek maximum profit, not sustainability or equal access.  Privatization means that the management of water resources is based o­n principles of scarcity and profit maximization rather than long-term sustainability.  Corporations are dependent o­n increased consumption to generate profits.
