    The “World Watch Institute” recently reported that there are now 500 identified
    aquatic “Dead Zones” in the oceans of the world. The Gulf of Mexico now has a dead zone exceeding 8000 square miles and is the result of agricultural fertilizer, animal waste runoff, chemical industry waste, and soil erosion from throughout the midwest. This dead zone is expanding rapidly every year.
    At one point the Mississippi River started off as a clean water stream, but when it reaches New Orleans it is a tragic mess and many communities use the Mississippi as their source of drinking water along its path.
    What a sorry commentary as to the state of our Industrial Agricultural Complex.
