Climate denialists deserve the worst life can offer.
CNN calls it “colorful.”
If I had written this article I would have used the word “TOXIC” instead of colorful.
Rubber tires wear off when we drive, and the
microparticles go airborne. We then breathe it, and it comes back down with the rain.... lands on every surface of the earth even on nice sunny days.
Clothes in the washing machine break off invisible micro plastic fibers that go away with the wastewater and find their way into the oceans. Billions of gallons each day. Tons of plastic each day that works it’s way into the food chain- that WE EAT!
Plastic water bottles dissolve micro particles as well as carcinogenic chemicals that we gulp happily along with the water. Wonder why our population is getting sicker?
Even toothpaste contains microplastic beads beads that give the paste it’s “body” and consistency (I bet you did not know that). I use “Tom’s of Maine” and am trying to see if they use plastic beads in their toothpaste.
Escaping the use of plastic??? Virtually impossible.
Just be aware, and try try try to curtail using any type of plastic for anything...
GOOD LUCK, I’ve tried. No Bueno.
WHAT IS OUR GOVERNMENT DOING ABOUT IT???
Thats right. NOTHING.
Oh, and we can thank our fearless leader tRUMP for his pathetic approach.
Oh, and if YOU support tRUMP, you also own responsibility for support of someone who could recognize this issue and do something to mitigate climate change. Since he will not and YOU support him, you share in culpability for this crime.
Here we go again- shameless, overt, reprehensible corruption at the very highest levels of our government.
I have a theory-
that JERK tRUMP uses immigration/racism as a smoke and mirrors, bait and switch technique to divert attention towards a divisive and attention getting issue while he and his crony-network of industrialists RAPE our natural resources and undo hundreds of years of formative legislative foundations of our government.
The entire country is focused on the southern border in a parallel media universe as he rapes our country’s natural resources without any media attention, and hastens the planet towards mass extinctions and promotes global warming.
I know that trick well. It’s a useful diversionary tactic during arguments so that one can bring up inconsequential topics to avoid difficult subjects to tackle during interpersonal conflicts.
The media doesn’t help. This article is not even visible in the WAPO. You gotta go to the three lines then to the “climate and environment” section to find this article.
It is so important it should be on the front page, first article.
After two years of reading daily articles like this, I do not see how anyone could vote for that ASSHOLE tRUMP.
Why the profanity??? Because it’s TRUE...
Because tRUMP has made it his personal crusade against the environment at every single instance:
Promoting coal (dirtiest energy source)
Allowing importation of trophy hunting specimens (even endangered species)
Relaxing power-generating plant emission rules
Eliminating fines for businesses that kill wildlife intentionally/accidentally (oil ponds-birds)
Reducing sizes of national parks for land exploitation
Allowing mining/oil drilling/destructive exploitation in ecologically sensitive areas like the Arctic
Reducing vehicle mileage standards
Undoing vehicle emission standards
Reversing the EPA mandated role from “environmental protection to “environmental pollution agency”
Allowing offshore oil drilling in EVERY STATE EXCEPT Florida where he spends time at his mansion
Undoing and rewriting the entire 50 year-old endangered species act so his re-election donors can rape the land for profit
Listening to the Koch Brothers on agricultural issues such as allowing the chemical Dursban to be sprayed on our food even though thirty year old science proves it causes brain damage in children, the unborn, and adults... and toxic food residuals in grocery items for all of us to get sick on.
Took me just five minutes to write this, I’m sure there are many more- I’ll put a link up.
If you still support tRUMP after reading this, it’s introspection time.
tRUMP has a long history of ignoring science in favor of bribes, donations, and the “old boyism network.”
I wonder what this jerk gave tRUMP to get him to undo the EPA rejection of this mine???
...and we must change too.
Stop/drastically reduce meat consumption (I have, and it’s hard at first but then it gets easier).
Dairy products also ruin the land- something I didn’t know.
Why don’t Americans care more?
That’s my conclusion- trump is an environmental criminal, and much much much worse.
He has undone countless environmental regulations that will result in serious degradation of food safety; air, soil and water quality, global atmospheric pollution and heating up.
DERELICTION OF DUTY happening to us on a daily basis. LOCK HIM UP!
Bad bad bad news each and every day. We are exterminating everything on a daily basis, and Americans just go on about their lives oblivious.
Yesterday I posted a Washington post article showing Alaska burning on instagram. I got ONE like, and it was one of support (from my son).
So telling. People really do not care!
July 2019 has the distinction of being the hottest month on earth in the history of record keeping, breaking the hottest month record set just two years ago.
The Republican Party is full of losers who care more about clinging to trump’s pant legs like a toddler so they can get re-elected than caring for the planet.
Last nights democratic debates spent a nanosecond discussing far flung stupid global warming ideas- but only for a second.
We are really in trouble as a planet- each day brings more bad news- that is if you are paying attention to this type of news... which I find hard to believe.
The front pages of media should be filled with demands for politicians to DO SOMETHING ABOUT GLOBAL WARMING.
Do not hold your breath, people really don’t care.
I posted a picture on Instagram of Alaska burning and got ONE like- from my son. Thanks, Kyle. But it seems that Americans are more caught up in themselves and don’t give a shit about the environmental future.
Are we to allow the masses in their self-absorbed manner rule the rest of humanity? Who are the “cool” people? The Instagram fools or the quirky environmentalists?
Until doing something about climate destruction is fashionable, I’m afraid absolutely nothing in our downward spiraling country will ever change.
We are doomed, and most of not almost all of us do not give one shit about it.
