I love beaches. I love being near, on or in the ocean. It sucks that we are killing our beautiful seas and what lives in them.
Today’s news includes a blurb that Japan is dumping thousands of tons of radioactive water into the sea. Nice.
Yesterday’s news was that BP spilled almost 5 million barrels of oil into the Gulf of Mexico.
Do you get the idea that we humans are heading down the wrong road? Our appetite for energy is enormous. We know oil is a huge pollution problem. We know that Nuclear power is dangerous as hell. We do have options that are less harmful. Yet we continue to travel towards the precipice.
Some days I wonder if we humans will even survive our own stupidity. Other days, I think we don’t deserve to.
I know… its not your problem. Besides which, what can you possibly do to turn things around? Fuck it. Might as well just party til it’s too late.
