Just saw a thing on the CBC regarding the Jordan River. Being that “it is one of the world’s most sacred rivers” you would think that it would be taken care of properly. But, true to form, people have to go and screw it up.
Three tributaries feed the Jordan. These rivers have been having their waters diverted for the use of agriculture, etc. This has resulted in the huge reduction of water flowing into the Jordan. If that isn’t bad enough the river is being blessed with raw sewage. When will we ever learn?! When we’ve polluted everything that is beautiful and natural on earth and we’re left with nothing but concrete, deserts, and black skies?
