    We are turning our oceans into garbage dumps.

    There are islands of trash mixed with globs of oil and filth floating in our oceans of every description imaginable, from plastic bottles, tires, toys, suitcases and clothing to toothbrushes and condoms. These islands of garbage which are growing larger dailiy are being built by the hands of man who is deliberately tossing thousands, if not millions of tons, into the oceans daily. The sad part of all this is, not only is this crap polluting our oceans it's killing our sea and birdlife as well. It would be only a wild guess as to how many gulls, terns, whales and other sealife are dying from strangulation and starvation by plastic pieces, bottles and jugs. Some ornithologists say the wandering albatross has become almost extinct by swallowing bits of plastic then taking it back to their nests and regurgitating the concoction to their young ones. Experts claim that glass and plastic bottles and jugs which are being turned out by the millions daily and already litter our road and waterways would last 500 or more years before eroding.

    I think we should just bankrupt the coal industry though... you know, global warming and all...

    Caveman Theory:

    When humans go by way of the dinosaur, what ever dominate species inhabit the earth millions of years from now will thank us for all the shit we left behind.
    After all we have the dinosaurs to thank for oil, who knows?? plastic buried in soil today millions of years from now may offer an abundance of fuel for whom ever.... Morlock's or Eloi

    Invest in the future..... Don't recycle or conserve, dump your shit now!!!

    Thanks to your people, the Cavemen, for burying enough dinosaurs to keep us in cheap oil for so long!

    Not sure if we should pay it forward, though. Do we really want the cockroaches who inherit our earth to have a lot of fuel so they can drive their convertibles with their antennae waving in the wind?

    I agree completely.

    I propose we nuke and pave China, which will provide abundant space for landfills.

    I think we should leave the coal people alone and bankrupt the plastic bottling industry instead. Most scientific experts are of the theory that global warming is a natural phenomenon that occurs as the world rotates on it's axis, which comes around in varying periodic cycles...There's not a shred of evidence to prove that coal or smoke of any kind, including volcanoes, which have been pumping smoke, ash and poisonous gases into the atmosphere since the beginning of time have any connection with GW.

    Maybe we should just stop the world from rotating on its axis!

    With every country on the globe seeking nuclear capability this could happen.

    I believe the entire "environmental movement" is just a way for liberals to try and destroy capitalism.

    I say we don't take any steps to save the environment. In fact I say we do away with gas sipping or electric compact vehicles and make it illegal to own anything but the largest gas using SUV. I say we build as many refinerys as possible. I also say we dump as much garbage as humanly possible into as many waterways that are in existance. Etc, etc. After all we all know how sissy it is to participate in preserving the environment.

    I have a confession to make. I participated in a parish wide garbage abatement program. Not once but twice. Please forgive me.
