Rivers of despair, polluted from Basel to Shanghai and Melbourne

Rivers of despair, polluted from Basel to Shanghai and Melbourne

Posted Mon, 11 Jan 2016 10:50:00 GMT by Paul Robinson

We rarely see political releases of information about pollution in most countries. Here is Australia becoming more transparent about chemicals and in particular herbicides. Now we need such honesty from dam builders, light polluters and, of course, the major climate changers.

Corals need more spawning, not more light.

What a mess the oceans are becoming. Climate change and surface temperatures currently occupy our thoughts, alongside the acidification so drastically affecting reefs and molluscs. Light pollution on beaches has misled turtle egg-laying habits and now is proved to prevent corals from spawning in this paper. When we finally reduce carbon footprints, it is likely the sea can breathe easier, but human ecologies must soon recover their ethics as far as all of these neglected species are concerned.

With respect for China in many countries becoming more important, the new legislative powers being used there seem to be having some effect. Prosecutions for the well-known and disastrous pollution of air and water in cities and countryside, will certainly stem the political and social consequences of some of the hazards in the nation.

Lots of animals, their habitats and people were harmed before the production of these photographs. Without these records, we might imagine we were conquering our problems of pollution, climate change and habitat destruction. Not so.

Unhappy home pollution is rife.

How clean is your home? Rephrase that now and ask yourself how polluted it is, compared to the fresh air, if your neighbourhood has any. You may be hygienic too, which is another kettle of fish (smelly that is). Whatever your situation, we all become complacent. It is not only the drains, polluted with too much detergent. Your own life, that of children and that of older and sick people is endangered by what you do. Awareness is a very simple science, pure and logical, but we must keep up. New products often turn out to be unexpectedly dangerous, even to the manufacturer. The testing now is rigorous, but simpler science is best.

Unhappy home pollution is rife.
