    Just another eco activist hysteria "documentary", speculation without evidence makes their point. Counter-arguments aren't included, as usual.

    Here we are, eight years after this was made, and not one prediction in this video has come even close to fruition.

    What a waste of time!

  • Spectacular documentary . Should be watched as a lesson in schools by 10

    Today, water has become one of the most valuable natural resources of our planet in the face of the rapidly increasing need, increasing world population and the increasing influence of the deteriorating climate order. "The Thirst of the World" was withdrawn in about 20 countries, such as South Sudan and North Congo, which are hard to reach. The film introduces the mysterious and fascinating world of water with impressive aerial views. While watching the movie, we discover the most beautiful landscapes - lakes, rivers, wetlands - created by water on our planet.

    A North Kenyan shepherd looks into our eyes and says he killed someone for the water and can do it again. When water reaches their village, women dance. An extraordinary United Nations Ambassador describes his struggle against the government to facilitate access to water. The interesting characters we encounter throughout the film enlighten us with their imagination and enthusiasm for water. Access to clean drinking water is one of the biggest challenges of our future
