The Water Ethic: The Inexorable Birth of a Certain Alienable Right


This Essay argues that water ethic no longer lies hypothetically in the future. It has been anchored in the past and is inexorably taking shape today in many forms all over the world. Rather than fight and resist the current pressures as they build an informal and tradable right to water, the global Left and the Right could help most by allowing it to emerge, flowing forth from below in a confluence of its own.
