Flint Water Crisis Update

I feel like we have saw this on the news, or read about Obama giving a speech in Flint, Michigan concerning this damning water crisis they are forced to endure. Obama confirmed that this crisis was a man made problem that must be quickly fixed and showed resolve promising that he would not rest until the crisis is delt with.

Yesterday, the article stated that the Department of Health and Human Services announced a $10 million grant for Michigan residents with a $1 million for a health center. Although this was very much needed, it may be too late. Jimmie Stephen, a truck driver, shares the same notion and he believes that the Flint community should band together to combat this issue that the politicians and E.P.A has ignored.

Such is the case with crisis around the world. The people who needs the most help have done nothing to contribute, nor cause the problem, and the ones benefiting in the crisis will simply move their stations elsewhere.

    I believe that these problems such as the one in Michigan should be treated as accidents. Everybody is reacting as if what happened was a surprise. It can be a surprise to me, but not to the authorities. Because for many years, the environmentalists have predicted and warned the elected officials that the life expectancy of the pipes that conduct water to the city was over. This is what happen when the politicians think that they are scientists or refuse to listen to scientists. The sad part, unfortunately, is that many catastrophes worst than that one is currently happening in some other part of the United States or in the world
