Finally reaching the point where electricity companies can’t squeeze anymore money out of the civilized world, they now turn their attention to those who couldn’t pay anything even if they tried.
JUST over 1 billion people, or around one in seven, still have no access to electricity, a figure that has barely improved in two years, while the number cooking with health-harming fuels rose slightly to just over 3 billion, a report said today. (World Bank and the IEA, International Energy Agency).
The World Bank who seem to specialise in just one thing, generating DEBT in the third world (aka everywhere)!
Electricity you can live without but without clean water?
85% of the world population lives in the driest half of the planet.
783 million people do not have access to clean water and almost 2.5 billion do not have access to adequate sanitation. (UN)
Perhaps someone needs to point that out to them.
p.s. Boffins. You don’t need electricity to purify water.
