And to think the pull tabs from aluminum cans, and the plastic six pack holder were outlawed to eliminate stream pollution. Then came lead pollution, next on the horizon was hormone pollution and now microfibers are polluting our waterways. Anyone care to guess what pollution is next?

Oh GREAT!!

I sometimes wonder if much like the KT boundary in archaeology that separates the age of Dinosaurs from Mammals we're creating a Petrol-Chemical boundary layer throughout the world that tens of thousands of years from now people will look back and wonder what the heck we were thinking playing with such dangerous stuff!

The Romans had their lead plumbing and cooking vessels and we have our Petrol-Chemicals. That's one hell of a legacy to leave behind.
