As we think about the relationship of water and humans, a series of questions come to mind:
1. Is life as we know it, or other than we know it, possible without water? What about extraterrestrial life?
2. How can we efficiently tap the huge resource of the oceans?
3. Can people/organizations own the water? What are the laws? What should they be?
4. Because the water cycle is global, must solutions be global?
