Do you like clean water for salmon, sturgeon, lamprey, otters, manatees, gators, osprey, and dippers? It’s also the stuff those bi-pedal fuckers with thumbs drink to live, so it’s possible that might appeal to you. Or not, I’m also down with misanthropy. As you no doubt have figured out, the water throughout the world ain’t always that clean. The streams, wetlands, oceans and critters would really like it to be cleaner though, and so would I.
