Mexico City ranks as one of the top ten largest cities in the world. It suffers densely crowded ghettos, snarled traffic, a looming water crisis, faulty or non-existent sewage systems, and a smog- filled atmosphere that is slowly killing its citizens. Daily, it faces crises never before imagined -- without the resources to deal with them. Canadian journalist Bob Carty takes us to Mexico City, a living laboratory of what happens when an immense population lives with intense pollution.
