Back in the United States, Senator Elizabeth Warren and Congressmember Ro Khanna have introduced a bill that would block large corporations from profiting off water and water rights. The legislation, known as the Future of Water Act, was introduced Tuesday on World Water Day and comes as drought conditions, triggered by the climate crisis, are worsening across the U.S. and the world. Meanwhile, in El Salvador, protesters on Tuesday called for the repeal of a water law passed last year that critics say allows corporations to control the country’s water resources.
