I walked on that toxic river.
Okay, I am a little slow on the news. I heard about this 50-mile benzene and nitrobenzene toxic slick in the Songhua River just last week and then for some reason I read about it a magazine today at the gym.
70% of China’s waterways are polluted and smog, it seems, kills 10’s of thousands of Chinese each year! Big business in China is taking a toll.
Beijing realizes something needs to be done but a strong ‘tree hugger’ movement is NOT one of the items on its ‘to-do’ or ‘let-happen’ list.
After the Harbin report, Beijing clamped down on future open and angry reports.
I remember walking on that river – kind of like Jesus, did. But, it was frozen solid at the time. And there was a large hole dug out and people were jumping in it to show on-lookers how stupid, I mean, how tough they were.
I wonder what temperature benzene and nitrobenzene freezes at.
If the Chinese wait long enough, maybe it will freeze and then they can just cut it up and carry it away.
