sorry to hear that, MountainStar
I hope you and yours are ok
as an environmentalist, we've been warning about this kind of disaster for decades, and received ridicule and scorn as a result.
A terrible tragedy, not just for the people concerned, but for the animals and citrus groves, the countryside, etc...the most tragic thing is that all
this could have been avoided, if we chose the right course of action. This has been ignored, and we are now witnessing the results. Usually it effects
the Third World, so no-one cares. Only when it hits the rich and the white middle classes do people sit up and take notice, and it finally becomes a
top story on the News.
