Latest Threat to Earth: Golf Balls!

Be Afraid...Be VERY Afraid

Just when you think they can’t get any  worse, the Enviro-nuts come up with a new one. And NO, this is not satire from The Onion.

With an increasing number of golf balls discarded each year, the Danish Golf Association devised a number of tests to determine the environmental impact of golf balls on their surroundings.

It was found that during decomposition, the golf balls dissolved to release a high quantity of heavy metals. Dangerous levels of zinc were found in the synthetic rubber filling used in solid core golf balls. When submerged in water, the zinc attached itself to the ground sediment and poisoned the surrounding flora and fauna.

Course manager for the Danish Golf Union, Torben Kastrup Petersen, said the scale of the problem is unknown: “There has been very little research on the environmental impact of golf balls, but it’s safe to say the indicators are not good. We are planning to collaborate with environmentalists in America to conduct more tests to fully explore the extent of the problem.”

The rest here

Geeze, I can’t wait for them to join with our moonbats in the EPA and try to ban golf. That should be fun!
