This week we had 49 members attending Current Affairs Society. This is an all time high for attendance in our society. We are very proud of the fact that our society is growing so rapidly. We discussed many green issues this week such as, the São Paulo water crisis. Citizens face a  critical water shortage as the World Cup prepares to kick off and water has been rationed as their reservoirs have fallen to record lows. While the water company blames drought, critics say the crisis was avoidable. At the other end of the scale, we discussed the implications of Antarctica’s melting twice as fast as it was four years ago.
