trout. environmentalists say we are all in this together with only so much water that needs to be much more efficient across the board. there's some places that do well with that some sectors that do well with that others that don't. we need to invest in water infrastructure and upgrades. some say we can stabilize supplies by importing water expensive as it will be through pipelines, desalination and even mega tanker ships. tom vacar ktvu, fox two news. fiji hopes installing new technology will help prevent threats of future wildfires will show you how the system works, plus. holiday music goes hand in hand with the season, but for some people, it's like nails on a chalkboard coming up the psychology behind bad feelings for the music.
