Pollution at Australia’s largest Antarctic research station exceeded guidelines for almost 20 years

Pollution at Australia’s largest Antarctic research station, Casey, has exceeded international guidelines for close to 20 years, new research shows. Analysing marine sediment levels around Casey station between 1997 and 2015, Australian and Canadian scientists found that levels of multiple contaminants exceeded international quality guidelines.

          This is too much to condone.Legal steps should be taken ASAP so as to restore sanity or otherwise a complete closure of this station should be instituted without compromise.

                      It's worrisome that pollution at Australia's biggest research station in Antarctica has been higher than recommended levels for nearly two decades.
