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.

I am failing to deal with this problem. How about the following changes?

If we pay anything at all to the credit card companies in the next two years, they should not be able to charge a late fee. If we pay less than the monthly minimum, they should not be able to increase our interest rates over the next two years. Many middle-income Americans have lost their jobs and cannot find any job. And many others have had to take jobs that pay significantly less than what they were making before.
