quite interesting to say the last. i had no idea this was going on. i know illegal waste dumping and old waste treatment methods (ie hiding it underground in barrels that will eventually corroded over time) is an issue. i work in the water/wastewater industry and have heard of plums of hazardous chemicals migrating around underground affecting water supplies (and everything else around it). i'm actually working on a fairly controversial project to clean up and try to mitigate fucked up dumping methods used in previous decades - and it's fucking scary to say the least. the project is still in its infant stages, and i know very little of the actual process of how cleaning up this mess is approached. but, from what i know is once the plum starts spreading, it's really fucking hard to catch and clean. i'm no way educated in the actual process of clean up, as i help handle the electrical portions of the project, but i do have a fairly broad sense of what needs to be done. but, given the fact that this dude out making a documentary and doing do-diligence and trying to get the word out, it won't be too much longer before some important players really start to layeth the hammer down.
but, this is happening in today's world- not some old fashioned thinking of "out of sight, out of mind" type of shit.
like someone mentioned above, world war III is gonna be over water...it's really not hard to see this can be a potential runner in fucked up things to come.
anyway, if u want job security, work in the water industry haha you can't live without it
