  1. Frightening that the supposed Western world, America etc have so much unchecked water pollution. Add to this the emissions issues for transport – so many lorries crossing Europe, instead of using the train system for long distance transport, & ship emissions, no wonder the world & it’s people are suffering. Time for Governments to get off their backsides & act. As a first step, force use of train transport for long term transport of goods, especially in Europe, stop polluting lorries.
