26x26 Challenge #26 : Arctic Misuse

    Newer Older

    This pandemic of pollution is having a profound effect on Antarctic and Arctic regions with mineral and oil explorations and the harvesting of the seas...Patagonian tooth fish, and whales and disruption to the food chain. But not just in the polar regions... It is World Wide

    How did I arrive at this picture?... well I could show you the polluting effect of 1.2 Billion people and probably a similar number of their animals on the street. But I think this sample is their mentality. More forceful education and strident re-education is needed. Here and world wide. The UN should set up a new world body, to combat this man-made disease.
    Maybe we should up date the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse

      I'm with you all the way on everything you say Mike. There is a huge challenge in raising awareness, educating and changing cultural mindsets.

      Agree cultural mind-sets must change or we will disappear under the litter.

      A great reminder and also agree with the sentiment. What on earth is it with us that we feel we can do this to ourselves, Great work as usual.

      Kind of strange when you think of the way sea birds (and others) get choked and maimed by discarded plastics yet bird figures are turned into novelty bin shapes to collect rubbish but they don't get used. Please don't choke me with rubbish vs. please choke me with rubbish! Turn it around humans! Salutory image.

      Good message, we should all pick up the rubbish then the problem would be solved. This flash mob film sums it up :- mememachine.viralvideochart.com/blog/2011/3/31/large-crow...

      Good piece of social commentary. Sad that so many people couldn't be bothered to move a few metres to use the bin.
