|Photo captured from CNN news cast - China's famed Pearl River under denim threat|
While working last night, I caught this news piece on CNN International. It really gave me a lot of pause. Though I have never been blind to the hazards of chemicals and dyes used in the textile industry seeing this aerial view of the Pearl River really horrified me. Then they were showing shots of what few fish were still left in the river and the colours they had become from all the textile and large industry.
