Focus: Air pollution/transport.
This majestic city of skyscrapers has become so over populated and clogged with traffic that it is now covered in clouds of thick brown smog.
The Hog Car – these petrol guzzling, smoke belching vehicles are churned out from a factory owned by Hugo Hog. They are cheap but are they really the best transport option for the people of Sky City?
- Surely there must be a better way of getting around. Perhaps it is time that Hugo Hog was shown some alternatives!
Nipper Wasps are on the increase in Sky Sity. A new spray is the only way of fighting them off – but what harm is this spray doing to the environment?
- Where have these horrible insects come from? Why are they suddenly making Sky City their new home? Time to investigate!
