The oil spill is only the latest, albeit one of the biggest, of horrendous atrocities brought upon this planet by us. Some are catastrophic as the oil spill, some are just going on and on for decades, like mining. This blog has already reported on some and I am reposting them here. But there are many more examples of how we blatantly disregard the very basis of our own existence. The planet we share is destroyed by our way of living. I must warn you, some of the videos linked to contain graphic and heartbreaking material, I put up an alert on those. Please just ignore those videos if you want, I am not out for hurting you.
Bhopal (Video contains very graphic pictures)
Chernobyl (Video contains very graphic content)
You know I could go on forever. The Niger Delta, Linfen (the most polluted city in the world), Russia’s Dzerzhinsk ( the most chemically polluted city in the world) and many more. I have not even started on the rainforests and the overfishing of the oceans. It is maybe not to late to change gear, but we have to do it quickly.So, please add information, links or videos on this subject in the comments section to this post, this will only help to make the picture more clear and the urgency more visible. Thanks.
