Read this ONLY if you live on planet Earth

Last Update: February 12, 2020

Do you know there is a floating island in the Pacific that is the size of the state of Alaska? That’s 600.000 square miles or I965606.4 kilometers of garbage!! It’s one of three gigantic floating masses of plastic floating on our oceans. That’s in addition to literal rivers of floating plastic and debris making its way toward the ocean.

But did you know that there is finally a workable solution if all of us do our part to start the ball rolling? Unlike other proposed solutions, this one will work is because there’s money to be made and that makes the big corporate boys and girls stand up and take notice. Might even be a blog or two regarding the subject as well.

This situation concerns and affects every living organism on our planet. We, as the most intelligent and adaptive species on the planet, have the obligation to fix this. We created the problem after all.

I encourage all WA members to at least check out this TED Talk regarding the matter. We, as a group, could be instrumental in adding momentum needed to propel this critical ecological subject to the top of the majority’s awareness by simply sharing this information every person within your sphere of influence and ask they do the same.

Good Morning KC,

So true and so sad and it is our collective fault.
Having 2 websites gives me the tool to write about this and related issues. Monsanto, plastic, fast food, pesticides/herbicides, the bees, and songbirds 5G, you name it. While our habitat is disappearing our health goes down the drain.
Because of the websites, I am confronted with all these things and my world view has changed considerably.
I am a member of bUnited, I have signed the 5G Space Appeal and marched in Malaga with the Global Climate Strike.
I am more conscious about my own actions and am very happy I decided to go green on my farm in 1981.
I will continue writing and I often use TED Talks for my posts.

Greetings from the south of Spain,

Taetske

You're welcome. The more I read, the scarier it gets. Of the 8 billion tons of plastic that have been manufactured thus far, every bit of is still with us in one form or the other.

The micro and nano bits are the most dangerous and the amount of those is growing exponentially as more of the plastic breaks down to smaller particles. Marine life is being significantly affected which ultimately affects humanity in a huge way.

Good advice, KC. Yes, we need to do something about this horrible problem. You are right -- we created it, so it seems like we should be the ones to clean it up.
