The Sludge Reaches the Danube

and it turns out, once again, that dilution is the solution to pollution, as I said yesterday.

I'm not endorsing that idea as a policy for waste management, just pointing out that it does work if you're not overloading the system.

One of the things that seems to be understood poorly by the media and many others is that concentration matters. For the caustic qualities of that sludge in particular, dilution helps.
