Sudden spike in cancer in 1 in 4 California sea lions explained by discovery of illegal DDT dumping near Catalina/Long Beach
“We found actual photos of the workers at 2 in the morning dumping — not only dumping barrels off of the barges in the middle of the Santa Monica Basin,” he said, “but before they would dump the barrels, they would take a big ax or hatchet to them, and cut them open on purpose so they would sink.”
It feels like reddit conversations deserve more of a discussion of "who" did these things. The culprit here was, apparently, Montrose Chemical Corporation. They were the last manufacturer of DDT in the US.
