AUSTRALIA: FRESH FROM THE DRAIN

WORLD

As a result of the worst drought in a century, the premier of Queensland warned that his state’s citizens will soon have to start drinking water containing recycled sewage. Premier Peter Beattie warned that water shortages may result in other Australian states having to do the same. “These are ugly decisions, but you either drink water or you die,” said Beattie. “There’s no choice. It’s liquid gold, it’s a matter of life and death.”
