"Local problem. It didn't make the national news. It just sort of the river smouldered and And carl stokes like said. Hey this is. He tried to make it and with his brother tried to make it. A national issue called it out and crickets hurt a lot of fire under congress. Yes under the congress because they already a fire under the railroad bridge but nothing happened until a couple of weeks later time magazine who in time was inaugurating. A new section of the magazine in response to this movement called the environmental section interesting. It was really just a pager to about like this is a beat. Now like what's happening and you know and this is the type of thing. People love to read magazines even then like. Here's a picture of a giant waste dump. How do you like them apples. I remember this from the garbage barge entry. People do kind of love their fear porn of and it's sad clear. Cut trees really sells the movement. When you see the photographic evidence and this is the dawn of twenty five years of what you think of as localized disaster porn so Acid rain is killing these trees in in up in by toronto and killer. Bees are coming in from the south and garbage barge and three mile island. All of these things are kind of just prior to the disaster point that we have today. Which is everything is dying. The west is in drought and on fire but the world is humans. Aren't going to survive right. That's the the current iteration of what used to be in a sequel. You always want to up the stakes screenwriting. One on one but so time magazine writes an article about this call. Yoga fire but they put a picture from the nineteen fifty two in the article. The nineteen fifty-two article where the flames are five stories tall. The bridge is on fire boats or burning. It's like it's really a killer if you're gonna put a picture of a river fire that's the one. How are we sleep when the boats are burning. Yeah there you go to coin a phrase and and they don't say this is a picture from fifty to they say. A big fire happened on the coca river. Can you believe it. And it suddenly enters the national consciousness as maybe the preeminent example of how far we've fallen and even though it's funny because this is entirely consistent with something that's happened since the nineteenth century and is getting better this one hundred years of river. The river catching on fire. And now actually. Carl stokes has been working to to remedy. And what a what makes this This article land so hard is this is right after the moon landing so it's just like we can put on the moon but kind of rhetoric well and also Right effort chappaquiddick. And so which is another sorted riverdale. Same week sandwiches moon landing and so. That's not missed it to this day. They think mary jo. Kopechne is still alive. Aldrin's like why won't you call me. But what what. What makes this interesting. Is that this article with the giant picture of the burning boat appears time magazine. Most sold time magazine in decades. It's got ted kennedy on the cover and it's got stories of the moon and so this. Yeah this this is flying off the shelves and then in the brand new environmental section. It's like and guess what else the rivers the rivers on fire at insult to injury. And so this you know really takes scoop jackson's Environmental committee it makes this this kind of one event. Galvanizes the public opinion or rather galvanizes. Public opinion doesn't need. The congress is accused of the public public opinion and in quick succession. The environmental protection agency is a is formed and signed into law by none other than than that legendary environmental richard. Nixon always been a pro nixon podcast. Yep that's right and we loved the epa. Don't we feel. God bless him. And then in in nineteen seventy two. The clean water act is passed again. Very much Sort of propelled by the experience of the koga river catching on fire and so this is really just being driven by a real public outcry. People are people are now outraged. An urgent about this and the government has to be. I mean this was a time when government of both parties would actually try to solve problems instead of to make. The other guy looked it. Wasn't i mean. Nixon didn't say this is a bunch of hippies once again. The hippies of you've been using drugs and lighting rivers on fire. It seemed like this was good business right. We are a which would be true of of any legislation. today just doesn't happen and also a lot of these programs were already in In the process right government was already considering this there was already an environmental movement. It's just how are you going to argue with this picture of the river on fire. The great lakes water quality agreement was signed. Love the gop. This is got. You're good at that you just out. I'm not i missed. The w actually nine hundred seventy was the first earth day right so this is all just within a couple of years. It does all the love canal. Cleanup stuff starts later. That's the late seventies. Or you know middle late seventies and you know what love canal and the sutton who are both on my on my list sutton who is completely separate i well. There's nothing to do their next to each other on my list so every time i see love canal i think about viking long sutton who lost those. Two words have lost all meaning to me. Knock there. I don't want want one but the koga fire remained in our national consciousness. Long after actually randy newman wrote a song about it right in in that time. Yeah called burn on. He wrote that. In nineteen seventy two. But then within the generation x. culture most famously rem wrote their stern denunciation of of american expansionism and russian goes all the way back to like. That's not just about a river fire it's also about indians and settlers and it's about stealing land from the natives and look what we did with it. Look how look what a bad job. We've done that was in one thousand nine hundred eighty six and i think that is something that kind of kept it like. That's where i learned about the coca river. Fire was. I had to look it up. Because i was like. What's the somber. yeah right. Like michael stipe..

Cut each number in half and you'll never reach infinity or zero. It's the hilbert origami. Yeah but one settlers settled there and And the original settlement at the mouth of the river which was a kind of you know delta like most rivers when they entered a lake sorta spread out and became a marshy delta. It's part of the it's part of the rhythm of life better river creates this verdict swamp. Is that what you think of. As the river as the rhythm of life the rhythm of life is the the rivers swamps we so the seed nature grows the seed and then we eat the seed. Where did this walk through.

I think who had an extra ian his name c. l. e. l. e. v. cleveland to cleveland to yeah right and then when the city was named after him i guess it. They just misspelled his name. That seems to be really how things get named in this country. This says one theory is that his own surveying party misspelled his name on their map. Yeah boy get get a better surveying partner. The stir wealthy connecticut surveyor. I don't know if you've ever read the journals of lewis and clark uncorrected but their spelling is but meriwether lewis is a. He spelled words differently every time he wrote them. Probably including meriwether right m. e. r. y. m. e. r. i. telling you exactly science back then whereas today it's our it's our most important way of You know dismissing opinion if somebody put an extra apostrophe it's her producer you suck jefferson paid for meriwether lewis education but jefferson had other stuff going on. And it's not true. Jefferson paid for is meriwether lewis. Thomas jefferson's illegitimate son. It doesn't appear so. It appears that thomas jefferson took became mary lou whether lewis's patron at a young age because he had a he had a single mom and he was precocious. And jeff was like you know what son i'm gonna i'm gonna give you a job here like shocking coroner. Whatever and then put him through school except he kept leaving school because he had other stuff to do. But this is not about lewis and clark. I wanna cool unfriendly. Mary weather bright. I don't. I don't know a single person named mary weather. Everybody's named cayden and jaden and shading weather's gonna come back. It's do if. I had another. If i had another child.

And we're making us feel mary. You could name any child. Mary whether you could name you could name your next dog. Meriwether that would be that would be pretty. We live in a part of the country where mary mary and mary are all the same pronunciation.

Yes i'll children's start out as hobbits the koya ho-gau once. It was established. Once the city of cleveland was a town of cleveland was established there. It was recognized that the hogan was going to be a river of industry river of commerce and in fact as early as eighteen twenty two no eighteen twenty seven.

There's two minutes of intro mission about build up a you but there. There was well over an hour of bill w foreplay. Yeah but lately. It feels like we've been mentioning the topic of the show kind of upfront. And and i'm just going to dive right into the koya hogan river fire because of the story. You know it's it's given away by the topic. It's not like you can tiptoe around it. Here's an impressive. How this might have gone. Can you ever drive across the river. That's on fire ken. How many rivers have you crossed. You ever lit a river on fire. Ever see water. Burn you ever see a man abida to a shoe. Do you like roman gladiator. Have you have you ever seen a river on. Fire know in fact. I don't believe that's a thing. Have you ever seen water on five. Water can't be on fire. That's where you're wrong. I feel like i when i was a kid. I saw a magazine. Ads always used to be for cigarettes and liquor. Yes and there was a picture of some cocktail. Which was i. Don't know what the couple coffee beans at the bottom of a glass of rum. Maybe and then. The whole thing was lit on fire. This am i making this up. No you obviously spent your time in in bars where people are throwing flaming cocktails around. I mean i'm vaguely aware that flaming cocktails existed really a cup of coffee beans at the bottom of anyway. I don't know about that. But it's it's very popular to set your booze on fire because it burns off the booze and you can drink it. Then that's why. I do not get drunk. That's why i do it And i was just amazed that this Because you know it was whatever the liquor was it was clear so it looks like well. It's like a cup of coffee beans and some water. The water was on fire. Yeah and i was mesmerized by it. As a child i mean. I'm definitely the product of magazine ads of the early seventies selling liquor and cigarettes..

Vilified tap water. They did what they could to make you. Fear tap water by pointing out problems with municipal tap water which which occur so is the fear or message and that was very effective this message resonated partly because the environment and the water.

"It's here now from W CPN idea stream in Cleveland Ohio, on an auspicious anniversary fifty years ago this week. The profoundly polluted cuyahoga river burst into flames. Now there's lots of myths about that fire, but it's legacy is clear it fueled, the country's young environmental movement later, the creation of the EPA, and the clean water act. For many, the river is frozen in flames from a photograph from that time. But the fires long gone. And as we found out at the river's banks that fire also changed the lives of Clevelanders like kayaker K Schneider. I grew up in Cleveland. I know Cleveland really well, but when I'm on the river, I have no idea where I am because I've grown up in a city where we've turned our backs to our lakes and rivers. And so we don't really know what it's like I'm walking around. I'm like, oh, that's a coffee. Shop. He used to go to all the time. But I'm paddling pass it. And I have no frame of reference at my geography. Read. Arise. All the time. Real. Yes, they're kayaking on the cuyahoga. It's more than the songs, written about it, like Randy Newman's burn on and to some natives, like Jane Goodman, executive director of the cuyahoga river restoration at songs part of the problem. Can we start with the myths about this? We've been listening to Randy Newman's. You're making a face. You burn river wish he would write a new song or at least a new verse the how it's not burning any more people who live here, think it's still burning believe me. There are people who say to me. Oh, you mean the river that catches on fire. Real. No. So let's set the record straight. So the actual fire in nineteen sixty nine was a few miles up river from we are sparked from a train going over a trestle lit some of the garbage on the river on fire, but it only lasted twenty minutes, give or take if there are no pictures of it. That's right. Not only because it was over so fast. But because it was such a common occurrence when it was mentioned the next day in the paper was like an inner page, it wasn't even front page news. And then time magazine picks up the idea of the river catching on fire does apiece, and they use a picture from nineteen fifty two which was much more photogenic. This picture is the thing that sparks literally, you know, excuse the pun the budding environmental movement, eventually EPA, explained the context, nineteen sixty-nine, what was going on that this became such a big story. It was a perfect storm Louis Stokes being. Congressman Carl Stokes his brother, having been elected as the first African American mayor of a major American city Carl Stokes recognized that this wasn't just a water quality issue. It was a social Justice issue. He got the city to pass a hundred million dollar bond to start cleaning up the river at the same time the time magazine article came out there was this terrific photo of the nineteen fifty two fire and people bought it because it was a follow up to the moon landing and on the cover was teddy Kennedy and a neck brace.

I like your idea what the public's plastic bags you stuff them in a big milk, jug water bottle, and you save. Yeah. Yeah. You got a milk jug? You honestly cleaning out really good. And then you put a hole in the side of it. And then you just stuff it with begs a great idea because mine are liking this big blob under well, I've gone to the, you know, the recyclable bags, but I always forget to take them in the store.

Then they're gonna make people afraid. This. There's now reporting that there's a family in Denver. They knew that part of their family was in Sri Lanka. They have not heard from one of the guys.

That's when I was approached by an elite unit of crime suffers themselves h. two o. the what detectives we hoped tamp down that river fire and advocate to work on a whole world mysteries. All of them had one thing in common water, solid gas or liquid. Now I'm always on the lookout to protect and serve this wonderfully weird substance. My first line of defense is to use my senses. Water might be in trouble if it's missing things like fish and birds follow your nose to if it smells off, you might need to open up an investigation. I'll be back a little later right now leap for date with a river. You're listening to brains on from American public media. I'm Ali, and you don't. My mind is still really in from our last episode about how the cuyahoga river in Cleveland caught fire like a dozen times between the late eighteen hundreds and mid nineteen hundreds. That episode was on fire reporter, any Baxter is back again high any high. So I know that after the last fire on the cuyahoga in the nineteen sixties, the government put a lot of rules in place to regulate what factories and cities could release into the river, not just for the cuyahoga, but for bodies of water all over the country. That's right. Factories and cities had to do a much better job of cleaning up their liquid waste before it could go into waterways, and if they accidentally spilled oil or something into a river that have to report it. So if you get cleaned up right away last week, we heard that the river is doing better than it was back then. But beyond the fact that it's not currently on fire, how do we actually know that it's healthier today? We look for clues. Turn your attention to the Kaiga river. Keep your feet still close your eyes and just listen. That's a perk ranger named Heather Berenson, and we're going to tag along with her on a trip to the cuyahoga river national park near Akron, Ohio. That's where she and a bunch of middle schoolers will test the water with test kits from an organization called earth echo.

I'm very rusty old swing that needs oil. They could take that oil from the guy hunger. Now for our final chapter of the cuyahoga river tail house the river doing now today, the kind of Hoeger river is so much cleaner that people are playing on it again. To commemorate the anniversary of the last fire on the river. There was a big paddle board race on it. Recently, paddle boarding. It kind of looks like someone writing a big surfboard, but they've got a paddle to propel them. All right. Right guys. Five. Green who. The guy who organized the race. Jim ridge says he really wants people to interact with the cuyahoga. If they know that it's cleaner, they'll be encouraged, come down here and recreate on it. And once they recreate on this body of water, whether it's kayaking stand up, paddle boarding rowing has been here for many years. Once they start doing that, they become connected to this waterfront. They then become ambassadors for that waterfront and that river. So the hope is the more people get to know the river, the more the want to protect it. Thanks, Andy for this winding river tail. Yeah, thanks any. No problem. I'll see you guys later. Bye. Bye..

"Guitar has been our co host for two other episodes. We've done recently about water, how wonderful and reared water is and how it's fascinating features also mean it can get polluted pretty easily. Guitars Lee won the 2017 discovery education, three m young scientists challenge gogo Tonj early for her invention that helps monitor water for one pollutant in particular led to hear more about that. Very cool invention checkout our episode called what's in your water today? We're talking about burning rivers of fire. And yet it does sound totally metal. It also really happened a lot. In fact, from the late eighteen hundreds through a large part of the nineteen hundreds river fires were fairly common before nineteen seventy the cuyahoga river, no Hieaux cop fire about a dozen times. There were also river fires in buffalo, Detroit, Baltimore, and Philadelphia. As you might imagine, a flaming river is bad news for both people and wildlife. It's a sign that something's deeply wrong nature. What was going on? How did this happen over and over and who finally stopped it? It actually took a lot of people and some new laws to stop. It l. hey, it's reporter any Baxter. He works on a project called the water rain. She's been looking into this phenomenon of burning rivers any? What did you learn? First and foremost, I learned that people used to really take rivers for granted, which is bonkers because water is crucial for like everything rivers, especially are. I mean, I do so much for humanity river's beautiful, majestic, wit they've helped us foam in many early humans live near rivers to drink from them and catch fish, free food and water. Thanks rivers, no problem. Human high five later humans boats to travel up and down rivers. They even used rivers to ship heavy goods. It's a lot easier to float stuff then to carry stuff plus. Look, I got a horn now. So cool. Thanks river church thing. Human eventually humans invented water wheels. When rivers flow over these marvels of engineering, the water would spin the wheel and power machines like mills that grind grain into flour, grinding by hand what a grind, right. Thanks for doing the work for me river. I don't even notice that I'm doing it, so you're welcome. Humans used the river to help make all kinds of things like the steel used to make bridges at one point in the production process. It's molten basically in liquid full humans, use water to cool it down. So it forms a hod substance seriously. I would be up a creek without this river. I know why do they call me a lazy river? I do a ton of work. Good one. Yeah, you're awesome. And humans used rivers for move and production. They also use them as dump. Wait, what. Bye bye. Talks. Now it's gone forever and will definitely not be a problem for me. My kids are any future civilizations. Cool. What is you just putting me taste like burnt tire? Just farted in my mouth. Yeah, that's why dumped it. I don't want to smell that making it disappeared, totally. And completely forever. You're the best river that's not smell so bad does not how I work. This stuff is just going to float downstream or build up on the shores or riverbed not cool human, not cool. Well, that is pretty cool because with all the money might factory-made about a jet ski now I can jet ski on you river jet. That sounds fun. What is. No, this is the worst out. Stop. No get on terrible, so horrible. So in a nutshell, rivers are awesome, but we aren't always so awesome back. I'm guessing this how we ended up with rivers fire. It's a large part of it. Let me take you back. In the middle of the last century America is full of factories. Many of them are in the mid west, and a lot of them are near river. So they have a ready supply of freshwater for all the reasons we've been hearing about the factories are making all kinds of things. Business is booming, but sadly, so as pollution, especially in the cuyahoga, it ends up going down in history is one of the most notoriously dirty rivers. I gotta tell you was really, really bad. That's Frank Samsul. He's eighty eight negro up in Cleveland. Amid up with him above the banks of the cuyahoga work gets pretty noisy. There's still a lot of factories in trains hauling away. The stuff made there and the distance you can see skyscrapers, Frank says a few decades ago..
