As long as your are learning instead of believing, it is worth it.

Save the Earth? For what? It'll be fine once we are extinct or moved on.

The top 10 most polluted rivers in the world have one thing in common they are located alongside large human populations with poor waste management systems. Together, they deliver almost all the plastics in the entirety of our oceans.


I'm shocked that Vancouver and Victoria don't top this list

I also found this interesting as well shameful if true
50% of Ocean Plastic Is Fishing Nets, Not Straws
I guess ban fishing is the real answer

My experience around commercial fishing is that they are the worst pigs on the sea. When the seine fleet leaves Pt Hardy there is a trail of empty cardboard boxes looks like bread crumbs so they can find their way home.

They are pristine compared to the places we exported all our manufacturing jobs to. Lately there have been lots of little plastic pieces washing up on the west coast. Can't remember the name at the moment but these are manufactured or ground this way for shipping. Seems like a container or three split open.

Well that placing of Vancouver and Victoria apparently has to do with there being ......................


LARGER CITIES in third world countries!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


But the real fact of plastic in the ocean is that people in third world countries....................


DO NOT MIND throwing trash at sea!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


After all - New York City dumped its trash at sea for many years - until a BIG PILE OF IT........................


washed back on shore and ruined summer at the beach!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



And there is old legislation on the Toronto books specifying.........................


NO DUMPING OF DEAD HORSES OR OTHER DEAD ANIMALS INTO THE HARBOUR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Imagine drinking THAT WATER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Apparently in the old days it was not uncommon to tow dead horses and such out onto the lake ice.....................


and leave them there - to float away or whatever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



it was a "free flush"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Nothing wrong with gill netting. It is seine nets and draggers that need to be eliminated. Gill nets target fish by size of the openings. Smaller fish swim through and larger ones mostly bounce off.

Gill nets are indiscriminate. Seining is targeted.

So...........you could encourage people in the lower main land to build sewage treatment plants!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And you could encourage farmers to be more careful about applying pesticides and insecticides and fertilizer.......................


onto fields near water ways - so the crap does not end up getting washed into water ways!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


See- lots of useful things you could do........................


besides railing at people who despise LIE-berals!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Even with all your punctuation you are not quite right!
People might take you more seriously if you used less.


By analyzing the waste found in the rivers and surrounding landscape, researchers were able to estimate that just 10 river systems carry 90% of the plastic that ends up in the ocean. Eight of them are in Asia: the Yangtze; Indus; Yellow; Hai He; Ganges; Pearl; Amur; Mekong; and two in Africa – the Nile and the Niger.Jun 8, 2018



Only two in Africa!
