No one should be allowed to gamble on clean, safe water – but that’s exactly what financial speculators are trying to do by trading water futures on the stock market. Allowing Wall Street speculators to profit off and drive up prices on a resource that we all need is dangerous!
The good news? Senator Elizabeth Warren and Representative Ro Khanna just introduced legislation to ban water futures trading! This bill would protect water as a human right by declaring that water is not a commodity for financial speculators to gamble with.
Urge your members of Congress to co-sponsor the Future of Water Act (HR 7182, S 3886) to ban water futures trading!
