Bottles vs pipes
Two of the recent Gaian wackeries are in direct conflict.
1. An intense focus
on plastic bottles as a source of "toxins", both for drinking and as trash floating in the ocean.
2. An intense focus on parts per trillion "toxins" leached into water supplies, which requires people to drink plastic bottled water.
I've demonstrated the conflict quantitatively
in the specific case of Airway Heights water "contamination". The "toxin" in question was PFOS, a fire retardant. The water supply was shut down for several weeks, forcing people to use bottled water. The bottles have MORE of this "toxin" than the piped water.
is insanely religious, but Gaian rules
are crassly corrupt, as Feinstein demonstrated yesterday.
(At least she didn't accuse the kids of being RUSSIAN_BOTS.)
Only one question. WHO IS PAYING TO SHUT DOWN COMPETITORS?
The crusade against piped water is obvious. Big Bottled is paying to drive people away from tap water.
The crusade against plastic isn't immediately obvious.
