Leonardo DiCaprio and Global Green USA Push International Water Treaty

water_planet.jpgLast 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]
