Seriously? Look at what "man" has done to clean up rivers in the last twenty or thirty years. Look at the improvement in the Chesapeake Bay.
"Man" was in the habit of dumping all his garbage, oil, and industrial waste onto the ground and into the rivers. Once he got smart enough to see the results of this dumping, he stopped dumping and began taking steps to clean up the environment. It's working.
