Leonardo DiCaprio and Global Green USA Push International Water Treaty

Last week, Leonardo DiCaprio and Global Green USA President Matt Peterson spoke in San Francisco to encourage President Bush to sign an international treaty proclaiming clean water a human right. A tough sell, given W's track record on international treaties and human rights, but with one-third of the global population lacking adequate drinking water or sanitation and 5 million deaths from waterborne diseases every year, the pitch needs to be made. DiCaprio screened a short film he co-produced, "Water Planet," which will be available online from Global Green next month. ::ENN [by KK]
