After meeting with the U.N., Jay-Z goes to Africa. 'I couldn't believe what people had to go through just to get water,' he says. (11.19.06)
The most efficient water power in the world - women's tears. 000aWilson Mizner000a000aThank you, .Jay Z for putting a spotlight on the water industry. This touches people on an emotional level, feelings of embarrassment and gratefulness at the same time . The plight that many people have to go through just to get water, and its not always pristine. You showed compassion and that’s how I feel, compassionate about the issues. Your move was impressive, approaching the United Nations (next time you go call me). 000a I am researching the business of water, and during my research amazing facts came to light. 000a Today the water business is the third-largest industry in the world, behind oil and gas production and electricity generation. It's a 400 billion dollar business, 95 billion nationally, and 400 billion dollars globally. In India, a country with a populations of a billion people, almost 400,000 Indians don't have running water in their house. It’s A MILE AWAY.000a These are very exciting times witnessing the emergence of a natural resource transform into a 'economic good,; a commodity. But subscribers of water beware. The increasing trend of privatization of the water industry, must come with a strong overseeing agency to enforce quality control, and service delivery.000aWith a celebrity such as yourself raising the flag for people who don't have access to clean water is truly commendable. 000a
there's been attention from many organizations regarding to this issue.

I would just like to express my fiery ANGER and disappointment that copyrights restrict me from being able to see this video in Canada. How is a video about a GLOBAL issue only allowed to play in the United States?
