The EPA is a large part of the reason why the Cuyahoga River does't catch fire any more.

This is what the Cuyahoga looked like in the 1960s:

I could walk to the Hudson in five minutes.  Forty years ago, this would have been nothing to brag about.

He's one of them.  He thinks the EPA is evil because it costs jobs.

Although, if you were close to the highway bridge in the area, you might see more redneck tracks.

A lot less water (often none), hopefully no sewage, and a bunch of backpacks, sweaters, and water jugs everywhere. But the amount of that litter is much less than it used to be.

Kinda riverish to me, to be honest.
 
2013-02-24 03:37:53 PM  
I have a stream, which frankly does look like this, because people do dump their trash there, and a lake, which is paradise.

I wasn't around in the 70s so I have no first-hand knowledge of the subject, but my understanding is that this country use to be farking filthy back in the day. Like trash everywhere. Can someone from that time compare and contrast this for me?

When governments or people disregard the notion of "don't shiat where you drink" they've already become less logical than cultures thousands of years before them.

EPA.  Textbook example of the 'When you do things right, people won't be sure you've done anything at all' principle.  EPA gets a lot of hate, but we've got it really, really good because of their efforts.  Yes, it complicates things. Yes, its absolutely worth the hassle.

China is just going through the same growing pains America went through with it's industrial revolution. It was not that long ago our lakes and rivers looked like that...they will check themselves, right themselves as we did.

Lets hope.

American River.
Amazingly, drinking is perfectly legal in the American River parkway. No glass, of course, but beer in cans is just great.

The Mississippi at St Paul.

A hundred years ago it was an open sewer that it's said was topped by thousands of floating Mr Hankeys.

I wish I was home in Montana so I could take a few pics of the rivers and post them.

I'd actually be more likely to be fishing than taking pics, but you get the idea.

Every time a libertarian friend of mine complains that anti-pollution regs are too strict, I think of pictures like that. The EPA exists to prevent the Tragedy of the Commons, and it's done a very good job.

I'd post pictures of ganges, but that's probably bannination material.  GIS for those interested. (NSF ...)

I live right below the fall line on the Rappahannock River, which is pretty nice. Clean enough to swim in and fish from.
