We have people combing the neighborhoods looking for scrap to sell. Vacant lots are cleaner than they have ever been. Occasionally some idiot goes for a copper theft in a power company’s substation but that seems to be a self-correcting situation. So why are cities strapped for cash dumping all that money in the ocean?

Can you just imagine the confusion this is going to cause some future scientists, as they try to figure out how all those subway cars and tanks ended up on the bottom of the ocean.

When you throw away a banana peel, it is litter, but when you toss a few tons of metal, synthetics, and plastics into the ocean they call it an artificial reef.
When a politician accepts a lunch with a constituent business owner it is called a bribe if he doesn’t report it and he gets run out of town (if he’s a Republican), but when a politician (Democrat) accepts hundreds of thousands of dollars in bribes or buys a house at a $300,000 discount because of a crooked real estate deal, it is okay.
I guess Size Does Matter.

I wonder what marine life will inhabit these empty trains below?
And I wonder if the ghost of Blackbeard will ever take a gander at these very strange vessels now on his surf, er turf.

Meanwhile, we spend money and energy mining and refining metals that might be recycled more economically. Are we completely daft as a nation?

(Real change actually changes something.)
So why can't we just dump anything in the ocean and call it an "artificial reef"?
And why don't we build more offshore oil platforms, on the basis that they'll become "artificial reefs"?
