Default Too much plastic!

Dead whale in Indonesia had swallowed 1,000 pieces of plastic - news+ - att.net


Poor whale filled with plastic. I recycle what I can, but lots of plastic items, even from fast food places, can't be recycled. Why can't we do better?

Confused Re: Too much plastic!

I have to say my sense is the problems that plague the environment, & threaten the human species as well as others, are so massive I'm not convinced there's really any way to curtail them.

Just as one small example: every day (except Sundays) we get junk mail. We don't want it. We don't even look at it. It just goes straight from the mailbox to the recycling container (after we tear off & shred the mailing label.) And there's no way to stop it. In some cases we've tried stopping a particular mailing. And sometimes it works a while. But then, pretty soon, we just start getting it again. Multiply that by the numbers of people in the U.S. (& probably in much of the developed world?) And that's just one tiny facet of the problem.

I understand there's a new U.S. government report that has come out issuing some dire warnings. I haven't read anything about it. So I don't know any of the particulars. But I have the impression our illustrious president has already panned it. I guess the good thing is, at least from my perspective, as old as I am I won't be around long enough to see how it all plays out.

Yes, it's very awful. I firmly believe mother nature will simply get rid of us if we don't clean up out act.

T.L. you will be happy to know that I've just purchased several aluminum straws with cleaning brush to replace plastic straws when we go out.

I also saw a horrible photo of all the plastic found inside the stomach of a sea turtle. Wanted to puke. Poor creature...

A large and popular aquarium near me is doing their absolute best to educate people and especially children about what's going on with the oceans. They are particularly concerned with the plastic problem, among many others affecting the seas.
