This week in ENN, Jason Sole covers the emerging drought crisis here in Cape Town, in reality the first major city to potentially face no water with a population of 3.7million. Also talks about Trumps actions against the EPA and the emergence of the new trend of cyber poaching.
The baseline of discussion is related to some new scientific research studies that have been confirming what permaculture has be talking about for quite some time. Remarkable the similarities found in base rules of nature. The article links are here:
