I suppose my generation will be the generation that grows up to say, back in my day, you could actually swim in the water at the beach.
Poisoning of water is something that always gets my attention. Mainly because we can’t survive without water, we being human beings.
I wonder if the people who are big on the #BeachLife social media trend will care as much about the environment as they do their own self image and egos.
Some generation will eventually have to care in mass about water pollution. The Greatest Generation, Baby Boomers, Generation X and Y polluted the Earth exponentially more each time around as if there was a prize at the end. Well I guess there is, the prize is the privilege of being able to go to the beach and not being able to swim or even touch the water due to the public health hazard the bacteria causes. But I’m sure breathing the air coming off that water is still perfectly healthy. Certainly no worse than the air breathed in citing in bumper to bumper highway traffic.
