Yet they can afford a space program......

This story seems to pop up every few years, people virtue signal, then we move on to the next shocking story, rinse and repeat....

Not much most of us can do except look after our immediate part of the world and if most of us did that at least most of the litter would be gone.

Yup, and they want to buy..aircraft carriers, I think.

I just find it strange how some Americans can speak so ill of their allies, just because they have a global problem of a partially dirty river.

No realistic solutions offered.

And just because most are of a different faith (that never bombed your people or anyone significant, for that matter).
There are places there (in India) that have hardly changed in 5000 years.
You can't say that, except maybe a Zuni pueblo somewhere deep in the canyons.
And let's not even mention Native water rights and the history in the US.

Real classy guys.

Like the neighborhood gossips: "Oh look at India, she's so filthy!"

Speaking wildlife in general however, India has done very well.

It has 18 areas where some human habituation is possible (India also has a number of indigenous tribes) but the flora and fauna is protected, and this in addition to national parks.

Unlike parts of Africa at present, it looks like they really mean it too.
That is very little corruption in their wildlife service/police, and a lot of pride.

A bit of perspective and compassion for others is needed.

I'll start with the Christian Bibles Book John 8:7:


So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.


Yes, the Ganges has become an open sewer. Many other rivers around the world as well.

The dead zone at the mouth of the Mississippi (an area of ocean with low or no oxygen hence no life) is expanding daily.



The Indians do have a tradition of dumping ashes from funeral pyre's into the sacred Ganges that exacerbates the problem. But the problem of River health is worldwide.

They will be chosen carefully and they will make the right choices based on their profession.
They will be above law, they will be the ultimate law makers of nature, and can operate in the whole world.
And they would have unlimited military assets to use if necessary.

Rotflmao!

Yeah, nothing can go wrong there...

Spent over a month in Mumbai... simply ... unbelievably ... horrible ... conditions.

No idea what river it was that was near our hotel, but it was so packed with refuse and foul smelling ... debris ... that people were walking on it.

No amount of googling or reading about what to expect prepared me for the reality.

My point? It isn't just the Ganges, and it isn't partial... it is pervasive.

When I was a kid I had a barber who had flown P-51 Mustangs in WW II. He told me that sometimes they would fly into Bombay to refuel. He said that when you were forty or so miles off the coast, a horrible dung smell would hit you. The reason was that many of the poorer people didn't have firewood, and would throw dung against a wall, wait for it to dry in the hot sun, scrape it off, and burn it for heating and cooking fuel. He said that he would land, cover his face with a wet bandana, gas up, and get the hell out of there as fast as possible. Funny but kind of sad story. Most people never see that kind of poverty.

It’s sad that humans don’t worry about their resources until it’s to late. Then they piss and moan about them being FUBAR’d.

The Ganges is disgusting. How about the Mississippi:


A historic slow-moving flood of polluted Mississippi River water loaded with chemicals, pesticides and human waste from 31 states and two Canadian provinces is draining straight into the marshes and bayous of the Gulf of Mexico — the nurseries of Arnesen’s fishing grounds

— upsetting the delicate balance of salinity and destroying the fragile ecosystem in the process. As the Gulf waters warm this summer, algae feed on the freshwater brew, smothering oxygen-starved marine life.

It's not just an "other" problem, it's a problem everywhere.

I love it when people on the internet expose their stupidity with stupid ideas like " regular individuals and corporations have the same responsibilities and guilt levels"

India has a problem with or without greedy corporate jewish baby boomers (the global enemy of the earth) dumping chemicals. America really doesn't have any other problems than those that trickle down. India is covered in #, culturally, by design of its culture, not its industry or politics. A true trickle up # hole and global embarrassment considering their problems are rooted in their bull# culture. Their brains are ate up with # fungus.
