Defending Water for Life on "Newshour"

Monday's edition of "Newshour" featured a piece on the Maine water wars. Defending Water in Maine organizer Emily Posner talks about the need to keep water in the public trust and in the watersheds in which it originates: "Ultimately, I would love to see Nestle and Coca-Cola, and Pepsi, and all of the other bottled water industries stop putting water into little bottles and selling it for an enormous, enormous profit. Water belongs in the ecosystems where it comes from." See the Newshour website for transcript, audio, and, hopefully, video.
