(Natural News) California used to be known for its beautiful cities and landscapes, but it seems liberal ideologies have turned the “Golden State” into the “Garbage State.” While Californian cities have long been mocked for their street-pooping problems, the coastal state is now seeing its beaches destroyed by waves of refuse and human waste.
Home to eight of the ten most polluted citiesin the U.S, California seems to be getting more uninhabitable by the day. As one of the nation’s most deeply blue states, California’s garbage problem is almost funny — if it weren’t for the fact that liberals are clearly destroying the planet they pretend to protect. California cities have come under fire in the past for filthy conditions and human waste problems, but it seems these issues are now spreading to other areas of the state.
After recent rains, residents of Southern California say that many nearby beaches are covered in all kinds of refuse. Dirty diapers, used syringes and old furniture are just some of the waste seen on the shores. As KTLA reports, the piles of trash are coming from storm drains along the San Gabriel River.
The mouth of the river opens up into the ocean, allowing whatever garbage to float freely right onto the beach. And it’s happening all the time.
Seal Beach resident Jamison Delfino told KTLA, a local television station, “Every time it rains there’s just tons and tons of trash … anything you can think of.”
Delfino stated further that she doesn’t even go in the water anymore because of all the pollution.
Multiple organizations, such as Surfrider Foundation and Save Our Beach, reportedly host events to help keep the beaches clean. But clearly, the beaches are not the problem — pollution from storm water is.
If dirty diapers from storm water drains are ending up in the ocean, it’s not by osmosis — its because careless people didn’t dispose of their waste properly.
For a state that prides itself on being a leader in environmentalism, the amount of pollution in California is truly astounding. As has happened time and time again, left-wing policies have likely made the state’s pollution problems worse.
