Thirsty Planet

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 pressing water problems and some innovative solutions 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.

No matter how hard we work, and how little we spend, we are always struggling with credit card debt. It's mainly medical costs -- therapy for our daughter. The cost of therapy in and of itself is enormous, and we can't afford to pay for it every time, thus the credit card. It's a catch-22, a hamster wheel of expense and debt. We've never charged luxuries or been irresponsible with our card. We are the exploited cash cow for the credit card companies. How are we ever going to save for retirement?
