Heavy Rain Does Not Clear Away Pollutants

Updated on Jul 20, 2008 – SCMP

An official from the Observatory said that when it was raining, “particulates and other pollutants will normally be washed away” by the heavy rain (“Thought clean air was the silver lining in rainy June? Think again”, July 13).

The pollutants do not go away, they end up polluting the land, sea, lakes and rivers on which we rely for drinking water and food.

Humans are polluting our environment and by so doing endangering the well-being of our children and our children’s children, and other species of life.

Believe it or not, we’re doing the same thing in New Zealand but seemingly to a lesser extent.
