And not a drop to drink...

At least of water, soon. Calculate your water footprint, then wash away your sorrows about the future of the planet with all the free libations this week. But walk, don't fly, to those open bars. (Planes are seen as huge climate change/carbon culprits, but don't forget the big emitters: CARS and AGRICULTURE.) And start saving up your pennies for food. That's all from this week's soapbox. Look for updates throughout the week, and enjoy the city.
