Turtles suffering ‘floater syndrome’, caused by ingesting plastics in the ocean. We have created a ticking time bomb in everything plastic.

Anyone with half a brain could see this happening 40 years ago. I remember as a very young kid thinking that plastics were a disaster and wondering at the insanity of humans throwing away something that doesn’t degrade. A child could use logic to see the stupidity of creating a plastic disposable world. Why couldn’t governments? Where did we think it would go? Why did we allow this to happen?!

Environmental crimes need to be taken far, far more seriously. The time is now. From poaching to destruction of pristine forests to redwood harvesting to ivory to trawlers fishing away entire swathes of ocean to dumping toxic waste to river pollution to dolphin hunts… It’s time to take this sh*t seriously.

China, you’re first on the list!
