The Washington Post reports [March 23rd] that according to a US Intelligence assessment, "Fresh-water shortages and more droughts and floods will increase the likelihood that water will be used as a weapon between states or to further terrorist aims in key strategic areas, including the Middle East, South Asia and North Africa."

Yesterday the Pacific Institute released the 7th volume of its biennial report, The World's Water. For more than a decade, The World's Water series has provided important data and expert insights into domestic and global freshwater issues.
Last month the House passed the "Transparency in Regulatory Analysis of Impacts on the Nation (TRAIN) Act of 2011" (H.R. 2401), a pro-polluter bill that would hinder EPA's ability to keep mercury, smog, and other pollutants out of our air and water.
The bill passed 249-169, largely along party lines. H.R. 2401 would require economic considerations to be a bigger part of EPA's Clean Air Act regulatory process. The bill would set up a new Cabinet-level commission to study the economic effect of EPA rules and delay EPA's implementation of two regulations on air pollution limits for power plants. These new air pollution limits would help reduce the amount of airborne pollutants such as mercury, nitrogen and sulfur compounds and other toxics that eventually end up in our waterways.
