a job can't afford her own four walls. with a g.d.p. of over nineteen trillion dollars the u.s. was the world's strongest economy in two thousand and seventeen it's a country where dishwashers can become millionaires according to the american dream at least but is that dream today a little more than a myth. according to official figures around forty million americans now live in poverty. and at the same time the cost of living keeps on rising the average monthly rent in the us is fifteen hundred dollars and in major urban centers that number climbs to twenty five hundred. those who can't afford such rents often end up on the streets last year over half a million people in the u.s. were homeless. when element police car turns into her bedroom everything she needs. it is folded neatly away here in the back.
2:32 pm
she sleeps in her car almost every night even though she has a full time job. so. she works as a lecturer teaching english literature at a state university it's her dream job she probably completed her master's degree at age fifty but her studies landed her with nearly insurmountable debts once again and found out how little i make and how much work it takes and i have a strong work ethic i was raised that way. and now. being in the position living in the car not now i didn't think it was going to be like this. living in a car presents a number of challenges allen has to find public washrooms places to charge her cell phone and laptop and parking spaces she won't get chased away from she feels let
2:33 pm
down by society's attitude towards her they don't want to know they don't want to see it's not their problem that that angers me. frustrates me. disappoints me in manatee in this area. and they don't know how well they have it. san francisco is a well heeled metropolis the city used to be a magnet for counterculture but that counterculture has turned to corporate silicon valley is home to some of the world's richest tech companies but not everyone in the bay area is living the dream of many people some even live in motor homes entire streets of them these people have literally been kicked to the curb. among them is the royal family with three children and another on the way the mother has been cleaning other wealthier people's homes for fifteen years the family had to move out of their apartment three years ago the monthly rent was three thousand
2:34 pm
dollars for a two bedroom apartment they just couldn't afford it but that's only staying here because my husband has a good job nearby but we can't move because we don't have any savings what can we do with that money. they improvise with the small space they have barely getting by while the people they work for earn six figure salaries plus shares and bonuses the enormous gap between supply and demand is driving prices up and the housing sector here and normal earners don't stand a chance to matter how fast you're around you always end up in the same place and because. our companies are doing so well google's hiring linked in is hiring into its our semantics hiring all these companies are hiring they're hiring at a faster rate than we can get housing built and get affordable housing. l. and isn't alone six years ago she married jim who recently retired but then he
2:35 pm
found out his pension wasn't enough to cover his rent both of them sleep in their cars and jim is reaching the end of his tether. this is not something that. provides you with a lot of self-worth and dignity you appear ok but inside it's it's it's either now yeah i've broken down. i think two or three times now we're just wears on you to the point you're going to tears because you're asking yourself how could how could this happen to somebody who's on a system hard working dedicated. honestly you know i'm not the only one i'm not the only one. for real estate agents like gary herbert the housing shortage has been a gold mine you really haven't you didn't see that house on eleven thousand square
2:36 pm
foot lot and suffer loss of just demand has caused property prices to skyrocket this two bedroom house is expected to sell for more than three million dollars. this house will probably be torn down and a new one built so that it basically i have a lot for you yes it's a big beautiful lot it's in a great location it's easy to build on there's no trees and no way or things that can you know inhibit the building so they can build their dream home here and this is how the other half lives ellen shows us where they keep their possessions that don't fit in the car everything valuable or important is in storage in hopes of better times some things have too much sentimental value to be discarded like the christmas decorations that ellen and heritage from her mother. died in my arms when i was twenty one and it's back. i know how truly.
2:37 pm
gotta keep something. doesn't have them any more. i want to have the farm. ellen is making notes for tomorrow's lecture from her car also house to serve as her workspace. the affordable housing crisis has been especially severe on the west coast of the us california has the highest rate of unsheltered homelessness and the country. got to keep going. i don't have time to really be afraid. if i do that then i'll become. so that.
2:38 pm
people like alan are locked in a daily struggle for survival here in the shadow of silicon valley at the heart of america's digital revolution people are becoming invisible. i. completely changed. my name is just the boss when i live in a cupboard and they were put in jobs berg and i'm sixteen years old.

2:40 pm
if they outed frames playing chess all walking around in the fall having funny jokes. my fear is that one day we will call into all war because. the way we're living at the moment isn't the best way you could live. we live to fight instead of living to love. grow forests are highly biodiversity ecosystems found in tropical and subtropical coastal areas and the long river estuaries in the one nine hundred eighty s. scientists estimated that mangroves covered a total area of two hundred thousand square kilometers worldwide now around half of them have been destroyed if deforestation continues at the current rate experts fear that in a hundred years the trees will have disappeared completely they plame the growing

global population and the booming shrimp industry. the southern coast of ecuador is dr twist. countless shrimp farms. around two thirds of the monk great forests that once lined the shore here have been destroyed to make way for them. to make the animals great quickly the shrimp found this feat them two to three times a day. i could certainly set it up that allow it so i know what you have to fertilize and i treat the water on the ground. that around sixty percent of the shrimp survive. that's a very good result but for that you need fertile ground sounds good water you know what i mean when shrimp need salt water so the poems have to be filled with water from the sea that's replaced regularly the foam school serious environmental damage to prevent possible disease the farmers get the shrimp heavy doses of prophylactic medication when the pond water drains into the sea it's taken up in the marine food

chain studies show aquaculture is increasing the worldwide danger of antibiotic resistance soloing there for me that says the medications are in the food that the shrimp eat these animals contains a wide range of different substances. but we only use antibiotics when the shrimp grow sick and the disease shows signs of spreading. in the last few decades it could or has become one of the world's largest producers of shrimp pomes are harvested every three months and business is booming along with petroleum and but known as the quest stations have become one of the country's top exports. last year just under four hundred fifty thousand tonnes was sent abroad bringing in three billion dollars and exports are expected to expunge this year.

diesel power whatever ration systems help people sit in levels in the poems high exhaust from the generators police the air now not far from the old palms shrimp promise of testing a new method developed in singapore and it's the poems are placed in the hand rather than the sure that gives spammers much more control over conditions the poems are smaller that yields a much higher after twenty five years as an accurate cultural engineer g.m. i.p.o. underdressed a turn to chapter. now he's pursuing a new career as a shrimp fama. if fifty four if we. were not our breeding well that is much healthier than the traditional methods you don't need only as many antibiotics and it will be fine because of the roofs that cover the wrong you can control the temperatures better. but also because
2:44 pm
the water is unchanged if you have more control over you have to do not. see him for. a puff like this yields around eighty to one hundred strength per square meter this area a lot more than traditional breeding methods. that's down to the fact that more creatures survive. significantly increasing that value on. the hold for global market. may be easing off our people who drive don't know me that the consistency of the flesh is a murmur model so it's better off and they say that the taste is exactly the same. even though the shrimp are being raised in fresh water rather than salt water an innovation that allows farms to be set up practically anywhere rather than only along the coast. but it takes the animals a while to get accustomed to the different conditions. i could achieve this is
