The Soviet era still influences the health of European rivers
October 15, 2010
The Danube remains under threat of damage from many locations beyond just the recent sludge spill in Hungary, largely due to decades of neglect
at the hands of Soviet mismanagement. The same Communist system that was supposed to create a "worker's paradise" instead just made polluters invulnerable to punishment. Moreover, the Communist system prevented much of Eastern Europe from taking advantage of environmental-remediation technologies in widespread use throughout the West, leaving behind what some people are calling environmental "time bombs" which are still being addressed today.
