Why do we bother?

8 February 2011

On the one hand we see more and more lakes becoming economic deadweights and health risks, such as Lake Bolac, Victoria, Australia, while, on the other, we have politicians and lawmakers overruling water quality standards necessary to prevent the problem!  Рon the grounds that the standards are too onerous for the industries that cause the pollution in the first place!  Sounds familiar though Рin South Africa we live in a country where water pollution has been aided and abetted by years of exemptions alleviating the need to treat effluent properly!

Money talks and makes an oxymoron out of sustainable development!
