@nomand please don't scaremonger by editorializing, the article does not say that rainwater is unsafe to drink now.

It does say that the buildup indicates a passing of a 'planetary boundary'. I think it means that there are so many PFAS in the ecosystem they are cycling around in a way they didn't use to.

Not a good thing by any means, but nowhere does this say that you can't consume rainwater anymore.

@mibzman @nomand That honestly might be *less* bad than the reality.
