Is the tide pushing the sewage south to Palo Alto?

As people take over more and more of nature this is always going to happen.

You'd think we could come up with a better way to handle all our waste products considering how much medicines, hormones, metals, etc end up in the environment and then in animals and plants.

We need to reduce the population of the Earth.

A quick look at google earth shows that this lagoon is connected to the Belmont Slough through a tide gate. I hope "they" will not let sewage flow out of the gate into the bay.

Baytrail.org confirms the gate.

I noticed my "Save the planet, kill yourself." quote has been censored. It seems even more relevant now considering some guy is thinking about killing others over his wacko environmental beliefs.

Some of his quotes:

"stop encouraging the birth of any more parasitic human infants."

"Civilization must be exposed for the filth it is,"

"Humans are the most destructive, filthy, pollutive creatures around and are wrecking what's left of the planet with their false morals and breeding culture,"

Be careful of anyone who starts talking about reducing human population without talking about their own personal exit strategy. ;-)
