It seems like today there are more people than ever who say that they want to save the environment, and yet environmental degradation around the globe continues to get worse and worse. The truth is that while there is a lot of lip service about "going green" and "doing something" for the environment, the reality is that when the rubber meets the road authorities around the world really do not seem too concerned that the world's environment is being recklessly destroyed. Our air, water and soil are all under constant assault, and if that wasn't bad enough, now scientists seem intent on genetically modifying anything and everything that they can get their hands on. The result is a colossal environmental mess that seems beyond the capacity of humanity to fix. But instead of addressing the real environmental issues, most of those involved in the false environmental movement are running around crying about things that aren't even real problems.
We all need to wake up in a big hurry. We are literally destroying the world. The following are ten recent examples that demonstrate how humanity is recklessly destroying the environment and yet very few people seem to care....
#1) A new study published in Environmental Health Perspectives raises the possibility that a flame retardant chemical found in an alarming number of common household consumer products can cause infertility.
#2) Even in China, scientists are warning that genetically modified rice may potentially cause very serious public health and environmental problems.
#3) It turns out that genetically modified crops have been showing up everywhere - even in places where they have been banned.
#4) British scientists are now warning that due to reckless and unsustainable farming methods, farming soil in the U.K. could be entirely depleted within the next 60 years.
#5) A team of scientists down in Melbourne, Australia is developing a procedure for transplanting genetically modified pig organs into humans.
#6) World health authorities continue to insist that the H1N1 swine flu vaccine is perfectly safe, but reports of severe side effects from the vaccine continue to pour in.
#7) Compact fluorescent light bulbs have been touted as a way to "go green", but the truth is that they are filled with toxic mercury that, when disposed of, seriously contaminates landfills and the environment.
#8) Two major U.S. paper companies are planning to transform the plantation forests of the southeastern United States by replacing native pine trees with genetically engineered eucalyptus.
#9) Some residents of Puerto Rico have recently filed a lawsuit against the United States, claiming that the testing of depleted uranium weapons and agent orange for decades in that nation has made them very sick.
#10) Lastly, one stunning new study has found significant levels of pharmaceutical drugs and illegal drugs in our water supplies despite "rigorous" efforts to remove them at water treatment facilities.
