The oil refineries and power stations that are currently pumping burning acid air pollutants along the Mexico's Gulf coast, now threaten to destroy and currode the carved stone murals at on the pre-Aztec ruined city of El Taji.
Many air pollution specialists, including Humberto Bravo state that the acid levels in the air around El Tajin, in the oil producing Veracruz state, are among the highest in Mexico.
If nothing is done about the pollutin levels and all of the toxins in the air within 10-20 years, all of the carvings in the walls will break away leaving us with real reference to the history of the city named El Taji.
I think it is sad as we stand by and watch everyone around us slowely wipe away and destroy our history. What is going to happen in 50 years when a kid asks about the aztec ruins in Mexico, the teachers going to say "Well Johnny, the aztec ruins are still there today, wait. wait a minute, OH yeah, I forgot, WE DON"T HAVE ANY ANYMORE!"
Sad, just sad.
