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?

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.
