We desperately need to launch a major mission to find intelligent life, since there appears to be precious little of it here on earth.
I often think of our beautiful earth as a large and well designed aquarium, however we have decided that blocking the filters appears to be a good idea.
We should definitely stop throwing junk in the filter.
But, but the earth is huge!
Compared to what?
Or, just hope God is handy at filter cleaning?
The responsibilities are global
1] They start at home at an individual level
2] They continue at work, where we should all persuade the companies we work for to be responsible.
3] The governments we elect should be held accountable.
Why am I so pissed off?
The signs of our lack of respect for the wondrous gift we have in our beautiful blue planet are all around.
Every time I take the dogs for a walk I take a sack with me to collect what little I can, some regard me as just another crazy lady, some stop to talk, and a few actually help.
I cannot bear the thought of our magnificent Bay becoming a cesspool.
There is not one spot where signs of our pollution are not visible, the plastic bag, a cup, a bottle ........ right on up to illegal dumping or as the British term it fly tipping.
When BP and other Global Corporations spectacularly fuck up our environment we throw up our hands in horror, yet every day we just walk on by the stupidity of our neighbors, and do nothing.
We allow this to happen every second of the day.
If you want to live in a shit hole, carry on.
Just remember every little bit helps, and its actually doesn't take that much effort.
If it is to big to move yourself, call someone, make a scene, and get it rectified.
