  1. Looks like he’s painting the water with his oar.

  2. WTF is THAT shit? It’s just dumb to blindly pollute something to that extension, no matter why.

      Fishermen row a boat in the algae-filled Chaohu Lake in Hefei, Anhui province, China on June 19, 2009. China invested 51 billion yuan ($7.4 billion) towards the construction of 2,712 projects for the treatment of eight rivers and lakes in 2009.

    • You do realize that if you buy anything made in China, than you are contributing to that waste. Inexpensive products are inexpensive because they are made in countries with no environmental regulations. Say you buy a gadget made in China for $20, and for each gadget, 5 gallons of toxic waste is dumped into the river. The American counterpart of that product costs $40, because it costs the manufacturer $20 to dispose of the waste in an environmentally sound manner. The true cost of the product is $40, either you pay that amount, or the river in China makes up the difference.
