State Duma deputy Vyacheslav Fetisov said that a script in which water will be more expensive than oil, literally and figuratively, is closer than we can imagine.
«Water, air, food are the main components of life. We treat water as if there is full of it. But this is the source, we deplete it. Already half of the states in the world buy water. And soon we will buy cans to breathe fresh air,» the politician said.
«A liter of water is already more expensive than oil,» the host of the program added to his words.
According to Fetisov, oil will sooner or later be replaced by something, but water will not. According to his data, Russia has 30% of the world’s clean water reserves and 80% of the world’s groundwater reserves. And rather the water, and possibly wood, than gas and oil, are our advantage and the main negotiating tool in the international arena, the deputy believes.
