Last quote by Mark Simmonds

If we go back to the late 70s or early 80s, there were major campaigns from organisations such as Greenpeace focused on what they called toxics – which included PCBs. There was a tremendous effort to get them under control and banned and those bans were effective – the levels of PCBs being detected have clearly declined and so the campaigning organisations packed up their tents and went off to look at something else and we all kind of rejoiced and thought this was a major environmental victory.feedback

Something that can knock the top marine predators out – that's a pretty major problem. As an old toxics campaigner, this is something that I thought we'd fixed. And, to some extent we did, but it turns out it wasn't fixed well enough. There are lessons to be learned from this. We have to maintain vigilance about environmental problems and not rest on our laurels.”. In addition, all sources we refer have quoted Mark Simmonds 5 times.
