Changing Climates are causing dry summers with flash flooding spreading pollution from land to sea. Some speak of farms being the cause of this pollution, but it's not just farms causing the setback of the water flowing into our Ocean. Who is to blame? We are all to blame, as oil drips from cars, lawn mowers, and human waste that overflow into our national rivers.
Living on the coast with the presence of hurricanes is just a fact of life, but I'm not sure why we allow our streets to be so full of trash and pollution or why we become surprised that pollution is flowing into our ocean. Large floods make it easy to see what rivers are flowing into our Ocean, but this is something that is taking place everyday and after every rainfall that occurs.
The Ocean is a mirror image of our city streets, rivers, and urban streams. If we cleaned up our land, would runoff pollution be a problem?
