NEWS: The CityHippy Week

Ladies & Gentleman, it's Friday night! Welcome to...

The CityHippy Week!

STORY OF THE WEEK: Wealthy nations now hit by water shortages warns report whilst Businesses are 'wasting water'.
We must start taking this seriously before it is too late. And I do not mean just us comfortable folks living in the Global North...for many in the Global South disaster is sadly all too near. Conserve water or die...seriously!

Business must accept its role in this tragic march towards chaos or face regulation from outside to force it to do so.

What else caught my little green eye?

Sales of 4x4s dip for first time and Londoners back charges for 4x4 owners
I think this indicates the slow success of our efforts to make people understand that urban 4x4s, unless needed, represent extreme excess in a world that is already struggling to cope.

Friedman energy plan focuses on renewable resources
Seems like Texas is heading down a very renewable energy road. God, could President Bush BE more outflanked?

Egmont is a Green Hero in the UK
Kudos to this publisher for being innovative and pioneering in a paper-intensive industry not known for huge profit margins.

Cityhippy bookmark of the week:
Ronald McHummer
Tell McDonalds what you think of their support for, and promotion of, Humvees to kids. Also create your very own McD's sign with your personalized message. Very funny and definitely worth a look.

…and that's the way it is folks!
