Experience three: Farming a Dead Sea

 

The VR piece gives an impression how it is to live a rural life next to the Dead Sea which is shrinking about 2 meters every year.

62-Year-old Um Baker has been farming for 50 years here.  Even though climate change has made the conditions more challenging than ever before. With less water to use, and even less to drink, topped by the low-price market she has kept on staying in her farm providing living and education for her 12 children. A kick to the teeth came the death of her husband 11 years ago. After some thought she decided to stay whatever it would take. She learnt from experience and created a strategy that would make it possible to survive.

 

William is 45 and works as an Engineer in one of the mineral factories next top the Dead Sea. These factories create pollution and use most drinking water from the wells. His belief tells him that he must do something for the community. So he has started his own independent survey about water conditions. On his bike he discovers new unknown statistics about the place. We hear about how the big Dam is a political tool of the government, how sinkholes appear, how most rivers have dried our and about the factories.
