    Denying that a problem exists is the easiest and self-serving way of not having to deal with it - kicking it down the road for future generations to address!
    Actually you're kind of better off drinking tap water- it has fluoride in it which the gov't adds to it the same as added nutrients in cereal.

      The fact remains we don't question the existence of water pollution and the need to address it - why should the earth's atmosphere be any different!

      - World Health Organization estimated in 2014 that every year air pollution causes the premature death of some 7 million people worldwide

      - 91% of the world’s population lives in places where air quality exceeds WHO guideline limits

      - the World Bank estimates that air pollution costs the global economy more than $5 trillion annually

      - sea levels rose by an estimated 14cms in the 20thC, and could rise by up to 130cms in the 21stC

          I suppose those are fair points- Googled every one and they seem to be legitimate.
          The 7 million thing crushes me- I mean, I guess it is a damn issue for real

          Well, capitalism is the main culprit- uncontrolled industries.
          We need to be a socialist-capitalist country; that's my solution to everything for real. The US is the ONLY country in the 1st World that has refused to adopt it.

          Bernie sanders should be the President right now, I hate Hillary because this is all her fault. He would have won.
