Oh really?

The UN has rejected the concept of water as a basic human right.

Instead, a special resolution proposed by Germany and Spain at the UN human rights council was stripped of references that recognized access to water as a human right. The countries also chose to scrap the idea of creating an international watchdog to investigate the issue, choosing instead to appoint a new consultant that would make recommendations over the next three years.

Mostly because if it's a right, then you can't charge for it. And, well, that would be bad.

Yes. Capitalism run by corporations is such a good idea. <\snark>
