The planet’s rainwater contains forever chemicals

Anyone who says humans are not causing irrevocable damage to the planet, should read Rosie Frost’s article in Euronews.

Rainwater is no longer safe to drink because it’s polluted with per- and poly-fluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), commonly know as forever chemicals.

Side note. There’s a really interesting film by Todd Haynes called Dark Waters about the issue of forever chemicals and the harm they cause.

The film is based on the real story of corporate defence attorney Rob Bilott, who took on an environmental lawsuit against the chemical company DuPont, exposing a lengthy history of pollution and harm caused by these chemicals.
