I remember when I made a post on a Michigan forum about the concern for pollution. I pretty much stated that it’s starting to get out of control and we need to start doing something about it before it’s too late. The remarks I got were just rude and brainless.
One charter fisherman goes off to make fun of me saying “I eat fish from Lake St. Clair and I’m not glowing.” Another says “if anything, pollution is way down.” I just couldn’t believe how much these fisherman are in denial. Well after the big BP oil spill in the ocean, I bet they are changing their views.
They could go off and say that’s the ocean, not Lake St. Clair. Well, if they think that, they need to read this article I found in the Macom Daily. PCB levels are so high that researches say they should ban people from eating fish caught in the St. Clair Shores area of the lake. That’s where I caught all my fish yesterday, kind of scary isn’t it?
Now onto the sperm whale story. Found an article in the Detroit News claiming scientists have found stunningly high levels of toxic and heavy metals in sperm whales. Basically the whales ingested pollutants that may have been produced by humans thousands of miles away, then they die! The horrible picture you see up top is one of the whales dead from the contaminants.
It’s so funny articles like this start to surface after the BP oil spill.
It’s like something drastic has to happen for people to acknowledge that pollution is starting to get out of control. It kind of reminds me of the movie “The Day the Earth Stood Still” with Keanu Reeves.
Here’s a scene from the movie
Mr. Wu: Any attempt to intercede with them would be futile. They are destructive, and they won’t change.
Klaatu: Is that your official report?
Mr. Wu: The tragedy is, they know what’s going to become of them.
[Both Klaatu and Wu turn to look at Helen, Jacob and Wu's grandson who are seated at another table]
Mr. Wu: They sense it. But they can’t seem to do anything about it.
The conclusion of the movie is what I said up top, it’s not till something drastic we as human beings change are bad ways and the Alien race does not destroy us. The movie has a good ending, but in real life will this happen?
Also, remember my article about being afraid of the water because of JAWS? Well we shouldn’t be afraid of the water because of JAWS, we should be afraid of water because of the contaminants in it.
