An increasingly globalized agricultural industry has become expert at turning precious water reserves into profit, “mining” water faster than it can be replaced. Crisis, the final hour of this 3-part series, examines how the planet’s changing water cycle is forcing us to change our relationship with water. The series visits locations including New York City, a surprising model for sustainable water infrastructure, and hope emerges that the water crisis is solvable.
