What's next? The air we breathe?
For some strange reason, I consider our community water as belonging to the community, and we pay our public utility to deliver it to us in a state suitable for safe use, and carry the waste away for proper treatment.
Accidents, both human and of nature happen. But deliver me from those that could happen when a profit margin is at stake.
Air? Bill and I aren't worried.
We don't inhale.
The air is already on the block.
Dare I note "cap and trade"? What do you think it's about?
Cap and trade has nothing to do with air
It's about money...
But it has to do with CO2 emissions which humans do exhale. It's nuts but if there is a way to impose a tax they will.
There's room for it, just as there is room
for public and private electric utilities. But, as Angeline notes, food, water, and air are necessities of life.
Only in America and Europe
Just where are they from the beginning? Let them start a co. and take it from there. It seems they want a going concern. In fact much is being said of privatizing toll roads, etc..
Somehow, I suspect these people want to take someone
else's water, and sell it back to them or sell it elsewhere. I understand LA did this a few decades ago to some farmers who had water that LA wanted. The farmers are long since out of business and gone.
