Thirsty Planet

Thursday, May 26 at 7:00 pm

From : Scientists say most people on Earth will first experience climate change in terms of water — either too much or too little. 

This documentary explores some of the most salient problems and solutions regarding water by visiting two countries where water issues are critical: India and Israel. A vast and ecologically diverse country, India suffers from water problems found across the globe: flooding, drought, pollution and lack of access by the poor. In Israel, a combination of cutting-edge technology and sweeping government policy has largely solved the nation’s long struggle with water scarcity. But the benefits of abundant water are not shared equally throughout Israel and the West Bank.
