Nothing in this blog can be believed. If you think that anything in this blog is true or factual, you'll need to verify it from another source. Do you understand? No? Then read it again, and repeat this process, until you understand that you cannot sue me for anything you read here. Also, having been sucked into taking part in the mass-murder of more than 3 million Vietnamese people on behalf of U.S. Big Business "interests", I'm as mad as a cut snake (and broke) so it might be a bit silly to try to sue me anyway...

Unbelievable...

Pepsi must think the Indian people are stupid. Here's their latest PR masterpiece:

Giving Back MORE WATER Than We Take

We call it "Positive Water Balance".
To help save a precious resource that is fast depleting in India. Through rain-water harvesting, community water-sheds, and water conservation in agriculture, we at PepsiCo India saved 836 million litres* more water than we consumed in 2009."

Setting aside PepsiCo's blatant lying (Wait. How do you know they are lying? Of course they're lying, they're a large American corporation. Oh. Right. Carry on.) here's a depressing statistic.

PepsiCo admit to using about 5 billion litres of water in India in 2009. Let's assume half of that goes into Pepsi drinks, and let's further assume that 333ml of a 375ml standard Pepsi drink is water, the rest being evil flavourings, sugar and other bullshit.

Conclusion: PepsiCo sells 7.5 billion 375mm cans or bottles in India EVERY YEAR. Which equates to billions of dollars in profit every year, doesn't it?

The thing I'd be looking into is where Pepsi (and Coca Cola) sell the products using the Indians' water. If they are leaving India, that would be a serious issue. As it is, it amounts to stealing water from the poor and selling it to the rich. This is a business model not unlike the one which has banks and large corporations pleading for, and expecting, bailouts.

Come the revolution...
