What can America do to save the world from itself?
How bad are we, really? Shouldn't we make sure our streets and waters are clean before we try to save the world? It is bad.
From a Vietnamese news source named VietnamPlus:
Quang Ngai (VNA) - Coastal communes in the south central province of Quang Ngai are facing alarming environmental pollution as a result of the waste discharged from residential areas, industrial production and tourism activities.
According to the provincial Department of Natural Resources and Environment, since relocation of the population to areas designated for infrastructure, development has not been completed, leading to co-mingling of industrial production facilities and residential zones.
We are as compassionate and caring and environmentally conscious as the next guy. But how much can America - or an individual American for that matter - really do for the rest of the world if this is how they live their daily lives? I am sorry; Tampa bay was once a cesspool - but never was it anything like this. Even in the days of raw sewage being pumped directly into the gulf was the water like this. It washed away. This is human trash and debris and God only knows what piling up every day all day all year every year.
