A WorldWide Environmental Confession
If you want to know about the 40th Anniversary Project
Nature was caught off guard, utterly unprepared for this onslaught of artificial elements.
Nowhere in the earth’s crust nor in the ocean was there the capability of disassembling these complex new substances
strung together by the ingenuity of man.
Many of the chemicals, sophisticated hydrocarbons such as DDT,
were based on long molecular chains solid enough to withstand degradation by sunlight,
dissolution by water, or breakdown by acids, clay minerals, or metal ions.
These chemicals, deadly to the human metabolism, found the earth and its waters a congenial way station;
and now they remained permanently available to exact a terrible price for human indifference and greed.
