How a shocking environmental disaster was uncovered after 70 years

Posted by in category: futurism

I saw this on several sites and it both infuriates me and makes me really sad. A half million barrels of DDT dumped right off the california coast in the 1940s, about 3k meters below on seafloor. Metal barrels corrode fast in salt water so you can assume its been poisoning the plankton and fish all this time.

The lasting effects of DDT contamination are killing an alarming number of California sea lions.
