Typical reaction. People believe what they want to believe. Here's a story that proves my point. Its not just likely, its a fact.

Narragansett Bay one of 20 most contaminated in U.S. | | Jamestown Press

"Major sources of pollution such as storm run-off and inadequate sewage treatment dump toxic chemicals and hazardous waste into Narragansett Bay, turning it into if you will a potion of pollution.
....heavy rains have overwhelmed the wastewater treatment plants resulting in this discharge of raw sewage into the bay.
