    I seem to remember some years ago when a river in either Detroit,or Cleveland actually caught fire from all the sludge and slop floating in it.

    That was the Cuyahoga in Cleveland; it happened more than once between 1868 and 1969.
    .
    Since 1969 the river has been cleaned up sufficiently that fish have returned and it is (usually) safe for recreational purposes (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cuyahoga_River#Environmental_concerns)

    Let me add that there is a song by Randy Newman about these incidents. In part the lyrics read:

    -

    “Well, the Lord can make you tumble,
    the Lord can make you turn,
    the Lord can make your overflow,
    but the Lord can’t make you burn!
    Burn on, big river, burn on…”
    (from memory…)

    -

    It’s the opening music for the great movie “Mayor League” that involves the Cleveland Indians, therefor very fitting and unforgettable…

    It is such a joy to see improvements in our natural water qualities, Soon it will be time for the nations of the world to start cleaning up our oceans.

    Well, since the Chesapeake Bay is a small part of the Atlantic Ocean, it’s a start.

    yes, without the big BP oil spill, which was a natural occurance since humans are natural, we would never have seen such improvement!


    the regulations and laws never work, and obviously have not worked here, were a waste of money, and did nothing but to hurt poor poor overburdened BP and cost us gas guzzlers more money.

    god bless bp for improving the gulf in spite of the evil democrats in the USA.

    Lol. Petroleum, nitrate fertilizers and carbon dioxide are all “organic” so they are not pollution!

    Aha. Right. “Organic” doesn’t necessarily mean non-toxic.

    It’s nice to see the blue crab (theState Crustacean of Maryland) doing so well.

    Back in the early days of truth in labeling the companies took it literal.
    .
    I remember a coffee creamer package ingredients’ list:
    “Edible Oil Product”
    That was the complete list if ingredients.
