Earth Summit Kills...

Post by Wiley » Thu Aug 05, 2010 6:23 pm

Humorous and ironic piece on the UN Earth Summit held 18-years ago:

The first legacy of the "Earth Summit" in Rio de Janeiro caused the death of thousands of fish around

the conference complex. Brazilian press reports say sewage from the 20,000 world leaders, diplomats,

journalists and technicians who attended the 12-day meeting over-taxed special purification facilities

in the Rio suburb of Jacarepagua and overflowed untreated into nearby lakes. The aim of the UN

summit was to curb man's destruction of the environment.
