Some friends have been bringing to my attention the environmental impact we humans are having on our various bodies of water. This growing awareness came to a critical point on Monday night because the conversation revealed some truly daunting and scary facts I had never considered before.
A girlfriend and I had just wrapped up dinner in Canton at the Speakeasy. Dinner was very good by the way and we engaged in a conversation with a gentleman who works at Majestic Motors. We started off the conversation good-naturedly about his 14 year old son and I voiced my interest in the Green IT industry. He then shared some information that I will be sharing below:
