Taking a dump

Two links doing the rounds of Twitter today bear a striking similarity; so much so that I was pretty sure I was going to end up at the same page when following the (un)fashionably shortened URLs:

What both stories tell are frankly horrifying tales of uncontrolled dumping of toxic waste of varying kinds in unpoliced waters.

Comment is hard; the degree of damage already done and the huge task of stopping it (even if anyone actually wanted to try) makes me just want to bury my head… How do you say? Stop the world I want to get off.
