The Dump

These are from July 25.  I always find the juxtaposition of the garbage dumps and the incredible scenery of the prime real estate they are often located in to be kind of interesting.

  1. Now would be a good time to describe how howful this is. THE major problem with Northern Communities is that they do not burn (incinerate) their wastes. They bury it... in an environment that does not promote decay. What is buried there will still be there, almost intact in 200 years.

    Recently, scientists exhumed bodies of people who dies from the 1918 Spanish Flu pandemic. They did this in the arctic and managed to recover viable samples of the virus that was still present in the corpses. The bodies were as if they had been buried a few weeks before... Remember the little Mammoth from siberia? It had died 10 000 years ago!
