Water is a pretty scarce, precious resource, so one might think that the world’s leaders would do everything in their power to ensure that it stays safe and clean for us to live off of. One would be wrong, of course, and most of us know that.

Funds given to states to help manage their water, including runoff, would also be cut, further putting our water in danger.

Don’t let the big business lobbyists run our health by taking over this whole discussion; be sure to be included!
