Polluted Rivers

Citarum River, West Java, Indonesia, covered in garbage
The photo is from a slideshow at Treehuggers on polluted waterways. It's a strangely lovely and poignant photographic homage to the message nature inscribes through our self-polluted bodies that it cannot fully absorb all the waste humans produce. There are biophysical limits to local and global ecosystems.
