Latest Bond film pits agent vs. villian who seeks water monopoly
Water becoming a commodity
Dec 16, 2008
James Bond is back, and in his latest action thriller filmland’s famous spy is battling a villain trying to control strategic water resources in a developing country. The plot does not seem farfetched to a church-related network based in Geneva.
“With water scarcity increasing and demand for water rising steadily in many countries around the world, control over water translates more and more into profit and power,” says Maike Gorsboth, the coordinator of the Ecumenical Water Network, an initiative of churches, Christian agencies and movements campaigning for people’s access to water.
The British spy’s new adventure, Quantum of Solace, started showing in many theaters worldwide before it hit U.S. screens in mid-November. The movie stars Daniel Craig in his second appearance as Bond.
