Earlier this month, on April 12, 2007 a federal judge signed a settlement agreement in which New York City admits that the pesticides sprayed may indeed be dangerous to human health as well as to the natural environment.  Pesticides  are endocrine (hormone) disruptors that may cause cancer, and are especially dangerous to children, the elderly, and those who are immune compromised.   The pesticides also kill off natural predators of mosquitoes such as dragonflies, which eat large amounts of mosquitoes every hour. The result of each round of spraying is MORE, not fewer, mosquitoes.  Seven people died with the last sparying in NYC.

“So for instance in the second Intifada, between 2000 and roughly 2005, when there was a lot of violence on the ground, the water officials on both sides – Israeli and Palestinian water authorities – continued to work together to try to provide water for their people,” he said.

Some 2.4 billion people have no toilets or sewers, and 1.1 billion do not even have drinkable water. Every day, an estimated 22,000 people, half of them children, die of diseases borne by polluted water, such as typhoid, cholera, malaria and diarrhoea.

------Apart from concerns over energy and oil resources, economists say a global shortage of water would curtail the world's ability to raise food -- perhaps by 2025. Fred Pearce is an environmental and development consultant at New Scientist. In his book, When the Rivers Run Dry.  subtitled "The Defining Crisis of the Twenty-First Century," Pearce surveys levels of water resources and efficiency in more than 30 countries, sketching a picture of the future of the world's rivers.

The book makes a strong—and scary—case that a worldwide water shortage is the most fearful looming environmental crisis. With a drumbeat of facts both horrific (thousands of wells in India and Bangladesh are poisoned by fluoride and arsenic) and fascinating (it takes 20 tons of water to make one pound of coffee), the former New Scientist news editor documents a "kind of cataclysm" already affecting many of the world's great rivers. The Rio Grande is drying up before it reaches the Gulf of Mexico; the Nile has been dammed to a trickle; reservoirs behind ill-conceived dams sacrifice millions of gallons of water to evaporation, while wetlands and floodplains downriver dry up as water flow dwindles. In India, villagers lacking access to clean water for irrigation and drinking are sinking tube wells hundreds of feet down, plundering underground supplies far faster than rainfall can replace them—the same fate facing the Ogallala aquifer of the American Midwest. The news, recounted with a scientist's relentless accumulation of observable fact, is grim. Maps. (Mar.)
