The Climate Reality Project’s 24 Hours of Reality begins in Mexico City, one of the world’s largest megacities. The city of 20 million residents is facing a water crunch from two directions — increasing demand is drying out aquifers, causing rapid sinking of as much as a foot-and-a-half a year. Meanwhile, extreme precipitation fueled by greenhouse pollution is on the rise, causing killer floods that overwhelm the city’s sewer systems. The dangerous present and future for the largest and oldest city in North America is being presented in Spanish by Gerardo Pandal, the area manager for renewable energy at Guascor de México.
