Indeed. Just saw it on the news today. The rivers run red like blood with the toxins from the site. Everything the river touches dies. I am speechless...

So far they've been unable to account for the dam's breach.

Son of a... How much longer are we going to let this happen? How long? How long until we finally deal with crap like this once and for all? How long are we going to let tawtute rat bastards destory our planet like this?

In situations like this, I just wanna take the people involved - from the corporate suits that made the sludge, to the politicians that let them dump it - and take them out back and smack the crap out of them. To just take some of these little snots, and work them over a bit.

...Jeez

That's gonna be around for a looooong time.

Hopefully it didn't get into any major waterways....if it did though, it's going to get much worse.

The company that owns the Aluminum plant is gonna be paying out the ass for this.

Wow, we suck... I know, it's always just "one more little area". Eventually though, we are going to wake up and find that we've done this kind of thing to the entire planet.

Really?

Do what my mum does when one of our cats spews on the carpet.
Grab their head, and rub their face in it!

There's a difference between a cat puking on a rug, and a corporation half-assing and cutting corners for dealing with waste, and the corrupt politicians that turn a blind eye to their shenanigans. One does it because of a biological necessity, the other, because they're greedy tawtute.

Oh, that's what you were going after (my tone-of-post determining abilities usually crap our this time of night ).

Yes, dunk the bastards.

This is just awful, awful news. I hope the sludge does not spread and enter the Danube.

Not only is this a huge ecological catastrophe, it's a psychological one too:

Quote:
"My wife and my son were trapped inside the house during the spill. She put him on top of a cabinet, and she was seriously burned from the waist down...they are both in hospital, my son is still in a shock. He says he doesn't ever want to come back because he feels safe in the hospital."
Those who follow bad environmental practices ending up hurting more than they realize, I think.
