    Fresh water is the topic of discussion once again on World Ocean Radio. In this episode host Peter Neill re-asserts the gravity of the global fresh water crisis and its cyclical relationship with the ocean. He discusses the shift away from valuing oil rich nations for water rich ones, and submits that the ocean is the inevitable place we will turn for all of the resources we need for a healthy future, from drinking water to medicine, from food to security.
