The world's biggest problem? Dirty water, say some

Abstract:
Water consumption is doubling every twenty years, but the supply isn't growing at the same rate, according to Kevin McGovern, chairman of venture firm McGovern Capital, quoting U.N. statistics.

"We have a crisis," he said at the Foresight Nanotechnology Conference taking place in Burlingame, Calif. this week.
