      Terrible for the oceans. The balloons pop, fall into the ocean and look like jelly fish and the sea turtles choke on them.

    "Unfortunately, the beautiful event took a turn for the worst as a storm arrived, sending the balloons back into the city. Trapped by the storm clouds, the balloons soon blanketed the entire city, paralyzing helicopter rescue services in the process. At the time of the event, two people drowned to their deaths after their boat got overturned (not by the balloons, though). Rescue choppers were supposed to come, but the 1.5 million balloons became an asteroid field, blocking the view of the pilots. When they were able to lift off, they couldn’t find their target as telling the heads of the two missing boaters from the balloons that littered the water was insanely difficult." by Inigo del Castillo in New Photography on Friday 21 March 2014

    I wonder how many fish and other animals died by choking on those things once they deflated.

    Change that to "fortunately" the ballons ended up landing in the city. Better than killing 1.5 million sea turtles.
