Sobering stuff Luke! We went through this before in the east with the coal mines and native brookies...We treat fresh water, something we all need, in such a reckless manner.
I had a poli-sci professor in the 70's who used to talk about our "toilet bowl" mentality...He would say, "As long as it can be flushed away, down the drain, and away from us, we really don't give a damn it's effects for those downstream of us. It's no longer our problem."
"Even when my best efforts fail it's a satisfying challenge, and that, after all, is the essence of fly fishing." -Chauncy Lively
"Envy not the man who lives beside the river, but the man the river flows through." Joseph T Heywood
Notice I said "might." Some of these oddities occur for many other reasons. Often people find one unusual morph and draw unnecessary conclusions. Coincidence in time and space does not necessarily indicate a cause. On the other hand, it may very well be connected.
