Shows the massive pollution of the Great Lakes in the United States and discusses the importance of this in the light of the acute water shortage facing the U.S. within the next twenty years. Also shows the lack of co-operation of industry in stopping pollution and the failure of science to do more than camouflage its presence and effects.
