The Rivers Are The Oceans Problem 11-06-17
It is obvious if you go out into the ocean that you will see that nobody lives there. So where do they live? Most people in the world live on land. So how does all this trash and pollution end up in the oceans? People live on the land, water runs off from the land via creeks and rivers, people discard trash and pollution on the ground......water is the lowest point....water runs downhill to larger bodies of water and eventually into the oceans. Very easy to figure!
The difficult issue is how do you stop the abuse? Well most organizations in the US have a mission statement that calls for non confrontation. Do you know why? Because if they remain politically correct and not cause any waves they get donations. Do you know why they get donations? Either because people, businesses, agencies or organizations don't want to be defined by any confrontational organization or the donators are taking part in polluting or have financial ties detrimental to the cause. Period.
Until there is research and investigations to get the evidence and then move towards solutions or litigation, the rivers will continue to be the oceans problems.
