…Because it’s never too early to teach your little girl the thrill of destroying the environment, risking health, and contributing to climate change. 

Personal water craft produce noise levels in the range of 85-102 decibels per unit — levels at which the American Hospital Association recommends hearing protection. 

Personal water craft represent 7.5 percent of recreational boats, yet they accounted for 36 percent of the reported recreational boating accidents, 36 percent of the total number of vessels involved, and more than 41 percent of the persons injured in those boating accidents

Wake waves from personal water craft can create serious shoreline erosion, creating turbidity and sedimentation problems in shallow productive waters.

Two-stroke engines run on a mixture of oil and gasoline, and discharge as much as one-third of this mixture unburned into the water. An average two-hour “thrill” ride on a personal water craft can dump between 3 and 4 gallons of gas and oil into the water.

A day’s ride on a 100 horsepower personal war craft emits the same amount of smog-forming air pollution as driving 100,000 miles in a modern passenger car.

Personal water craft have more serious negative impacts on birds, including interruption of normal feeding activity and repeated displacement from nesting areas, than conventional motorboats, cars, all-terrain vehicles and pedestrians. For instance, one study found that waterfowl respond “significantly more” to personal water craft compared to motorboats.
