staying alive to enjoy it

A millionaire with nothing on his dinner plate is still a hungry man. There is something to be said for assuring the foundations of any project, whether national or personal:
ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates (AP) -- As skyscrapers and gleaming towers rose with lightning speed across the United Arab Emirates over the past two decades, the Gulf nation's thirst for water grew at an enormous rate - so much so that today, it threatens to dry up all of the country's groundwater in as little as 15 years, experts say.
To quench that demand, cities across the seven emirates that make up the UAE rely on desalinated seawater to supply 98 percent of their drinking water, but that comes with a tremendous environmental and fiscal cost.
A millionaire asshole, just like a poverty-stricken one, is still an asshole.
