As request by Christina I show the picture of the water pollution mentioned in my previous post. The pollution was caused by two pottery factories which had discharged waste water containing zinc, cadmium and plumb into a small river. The photo below shows the illegal emission of waste water into that Italian small river located at 60 km North from Rome.
That illegal behaviour above mentioned causes significant risk to the environment, human health and economy. The polluted river has been significantly altered and it flows across the Treja valley which is a protected natural area: http://www.parks.it/parco.valle.treja/Eindex.php
In addition to this, illegal emission of substances into water provides for very high profits for perpetrators. Criminal law in the field of environment needs to be implemented in an effective way.
I hope I haven't bored you with these ecological posts. In any case, I think that most runners love environment.
Nice green weekend to all my blogger friends!
