Without going into technical details, coffee sediment pollution is the pollution (in river systems and areas into which runoffs flow) brought about by rivers carrying dust and other fine or coarse particles like coffee grounds. One visible effect of coffee sediment pollution is that the water is highly turbid. Since the rivers concerned are contaminated with coffee pollutants, it becomes important to take measures to mitigate the effects of the pollution. Just look at the Holsten River!! The fact that some people don't like coffee to start with makes this issue more serious.

On the plus side, a smallmouth bass hyped up on Starbuck's expressos does put up a better fight.

Why are you so hostile? You can't even discuss the matter without resorting to childish name calling. You should be ashamed. Al Gore is a fantastic American and an asset to Tennessee!!

Well, you're partially right. Al Gore is an ass. He is one of the biggest charlatans ever, and he is perpetuated by idiots like you who kiss his ass. He is only doing this global warming BS for one reason: MONEY! Get a clue.

How dare you say such unkind things! You're wrong and mean, too! Coffee runoff is ruining our waterways and all you can do is to resort to name calling and smearing the character of a great man. When I read hate filled comments like yours, it makes me sad for the future

I cant believe that anyone can believe Al Gore is a "great American". He is a first class disgrace! Sad for the future? Yes, as long as there are fools like you running around the future is very much in jeopardy. Get a clue!

Wow the median iq around is very low, obviously. Too much inbreeding.The haters and people who threaten are so common. Stupid part of the USA for sure. People on here are not a bit afraid to be idiots in or out of public. You should see how people speak on this forum in decent areas. With respect for one another and with a helpful tone, this forum can be used positively. Really, it can. But i bet some inbred ignorant food stamp junkie will have a smart ass comment within an hour so screw you in advance pillbilly !

You make a joke, but this is a serious issue. Coffee water accumulates and runs off to the nearest storm drain or stream, lake or stretch of coastline. As more and more coffee water collects, it causes erosion and flooding. The runoff also carries coffee pollutants from homes, offices, stores, vending machines, diners and coffee shops to our rivers, lakes, and oceans. This polluted runoff, or coffee water, is one of the largest and fastest growing threats to U.S. and global water resources.

Every time a democrat gets in office these nut bags crawl out of the woodwork. How do these bunch of totally stupid people survive day to day life? I guess everyone feels sorry for them and let's them spout off and show their iq's. You know one does really feel sorry for them when you slap the sh_t out of them. Even if they do need it.
