Great Lakes Water Raid
(2008-04-23)
(wgvu) - TORONTO (AP) - Canadian and American experts say it's not
unrealistic to expect that parched U.S. states could start "water
wars" in the years ahead and fight for access to Great Lakes
resources.
Representatives from Environment Canada and the U.S.
Environmental Protection Agency made similar comments Wednesday at
a conference in Toronto, saying they believe some
environmentalists' fears have merit.
Milton Clark of the EPA says some American politicians are
already suggesting that water from the Great Lakes should be shared
with states facing dwindling water supplies.
And Environment Canada's Linda Mortsch says the effects of
climate change will make those dry states even more desperate for
access to the Great Lakes in coming years.
