We just saw CNBC’s Liquid Assets – Big Business of Water (opens CNBC video, 42:43min). Although very US centric, the overall message is pointing in the right direction. The cost of water is simply too low. As Peter Gleick puts it: “An oil tanker filled up with oil may be worth $200m – $300m. The same tanker filled with water would be worth just $400’000 – $500’000.”
Another CNBC report looks at Water stocks. Debra Coy is giving her views (opens CNBC video: 04:00min). The discussion briefly touches on water rights also. Two companies mentioned are Cadiz Inc. and Pico Holdings.
