    White House, EPA headed off chemical pollution study

    If the government knowingly allows drinking water to be contaminated, it should be held accountable. It can be sued, given the examples of the tobacco industry.

    Clean water is a human right. Its one of those things that separates us from "shitholes". Ive donated to clean water charities, maybe we should set one up for the US ?

    /----/ No it's not. Never has been, never will be a right.

    Who the hell drinks tap water anyway? Nobody I know of. Tap water is for bathing and washing cars, otherwise why the hell do you think they sell so much bottled water at the stores?

    I live out in the country and have a deep well. But there are agricultural fields all over the place and most likely the agricultural chemicals have been permeating the water table for decades. When we do use tap water, it gets filtered.

    Its a right in Slovenia.
    Slovenia adds water to constitution as fundamental right for all
    Why does the concept upset you so much ?

    Nothing is really a human right. Not even life. Clean water is just one of those things a civilized society feels doesn't need to be questioned in 2018.
