'Urban population is responsible for 80% of the worlds pollution'Then look at the type of pollution.A little organic from farming is much less of a problem than inorganic wastes which are more toxic and dont break down in the enviroment as easliy.Look at the councils of NZ, and if there is a stream, river, or sea around they pour waste into it. The worse polluters in NZ are the councils as even business is regulated to pollute less than our councils.Take any stream/river in NZ. Sample it down its length every km to the sea.Check the polution changes every step of the way, and the worst degrading of quality will be as it passes urban areas. Be it stormwater runoff, or treated sewerage. NZ councils need to clean up their act even more than dairying.
