    Default Pollution - a Delta concept?

    tr.v., -lut·ed, -lut·ing, -lutes.

    1. To make unfit for or harmful to living things, especially by the addition of waste matter. See synonyms at contaminate.
    2. To make less suitable for an activity, especially by the introduction of unwanted factors: The stadium lights polluted the sky around the observatory.
    3. To render impure or morally harmful; corrupt.
    4. To make ceremonially impure; profane: “Churches and altars were polluted by atrocious murders” (Edward Gibbon).
    Seems like a very Delta concept.

    The STs are concerned with physical sustainability, working to make healthy living conditions
    NFs are concerned with its moral aspect.

    Not to mention the alleged delta connection to "the environment" and being outside.

    I can't comment as to the 'delta-ness' of the concept, but I've always thought of it as a kind of personal responsibility. Sort of a 'how would you want your ancestors to treat you' sort of thing. Only for my descendents. Though idk, I've always been kind of a sucker for the the golden rule.

    I'm not saying pollution is delta, and delta only, and everyone else sucks, blah blah blah, no.
    It was just something that came to mind.

    Meh, the way I see it, all of those people who try to come across as "caring for the enviornment" are self serving. If we don't take care of the earth it's gonna wipe us out like flys, and get right back to chugging along. If we don't take care of it, it's only gonna kill us. We have mighty fat heads to think we can affect the earth like that.

    STs are rarely concerned about anything outside the day to day needs. They might be aware of it, but they could not care less about it.

    Unless you......... run for president or some other political office, or work on an international level. Or do STs not do that sort of thing?
