Went for a walk this afternoon by the creek after I had made my post earlier. Found all this down by the water for the most part, a few items up away.
Many of us do not realize our impact on nature. There are a lot of people who do not go outside, and if they do, they never get to places where there is no people or cell reception. Therefore we never see plastic pollution outside of our city streets. It really is crazy how much plastic and trash is just floating around on earth. Next time you toss a wrapper or bottle, or see one on the ground think about where it goes. Chances are the ocean. Wind will blow it, or rain will carry it to a stream, to a river to the ocean or maybe a reservoir for recreation or drinking water. Trash doesn’t stay in one place, it flows like everything else. Everything we do is connected back to use one way or another, even our waste. Here’s a little article that has a birds nest with plastic trash featured.
Carbon dioxide reached a new high this year, which is kinda crazy. Article here, check it out. Planet is changing, whether or not you believe it is man made, things are happening.
I saw this really cool article about an exhibit at the singapore art museum. They have a show for kids inspired by the sea this year. It has a lot of awesome displays, and some get you thinking about our relationship with the ocean and our trash. Check out the article here, the first photo in the article looks like quite an amazing work.
I read today that sierra club has endorsed Hilary Clinton, which is very exciting. Clearly they would choose anyone but Trump…. I think I am still rooting for Bernie, but choosing anyone but a crazy climate denier for president is best. I think anyone in the democratic party will do us well, and it is about time we accept that a woman can lead the country. It is kind of crazy we have qualms with that idea in this day and age. The less crazy the better right? Anyway don’t vote for Trump, OK?
