Once again, beer to the rescue.
Yeah you're right, I forgot to add the .9
I think 99% aren't even aware of the problem and if told about it, would willfully resist accepting the gravity of it. I'm referring specifically to the PFAS issue, though.
the reality is those chemicals also are created by the petro industry.... just to add to the list i alreddy did...Good to see one more person who actually took the time to check the link to see what it was about.
It's not sensationalist reporting, if anything it's understated, and it's not about normal pollution, which is bad enough. It's such a disgrace that in such a short time, there's not a place on the planet that isn't affected by PFAS "forever" chemicals, but 99% of the people do not care one iota.
When the presentation of facts is called a "mentality" there exists a problem with people's ability to be human. We do not agree,
Ice cold and the best tasting water I can ever recall....although there is no way it was "crystal clean". All that rust alone would be considered a major haz-mat contamination in California. Soft water? Never knew what that was, our water was like gravel it was so hard, yet I thought it was delicious and like you mentioned, we never got sick from it.
This is true of the for-profit media, but it doesn't mean the genuine crises in climate and contamination aren't real. And not all media outlets are profit-driven. There is still fact-checked and relatively impartial information to be had from actual journalists.The media contrives to scare and tittilate. That is their sole purpose because it sells ad space.
The media is not in business to provide a service to keep the public informed; what they do is put money into the pockets of their investors. Period.
Look at all the toenail fungus and hyooj bewbee clickbait on this site and you'll quickly understand.
Far too many have been led to consider all science suspect, often for two main reasons that can't be discussed here.When the presentation of facts is called a "mentality" there exists a problem with people's ability to be human. We do not agree,
I mean, it's a symbolic number but I think if you lined up a group of 100 random laypeople and asked, "alright who here feels confident in giving a two minute talk on the history, health effects and global ubiquitousness of PFAS molecules? Just the superficial highlights", you wouldn't see many hands go up. And you'd see a lot of bored fidgeting if you started to explain this stuff to them. And they'd go home and fry some ground meat in their chipped Teflon pan.
