Worst doomer porn ever and 100%True

Absolutely sickening.  Why don't we fix this instead of fighting over global warming?  I can't imagine anyone after seeing this movie saying we shouldn't fix this... and it is doable.
The movie; A Plastic Ocean.

It's on Netflix

I was up last night thinking about this movie.  This is the first time in my life I am very distressed about something like this.  Plastics are literally ending life on earth, right now, for billions of sea creatures and birds.  Plastics may well destroy the oceans. Seems very likely to in fact.  It's like the apocalyptic statements people make about global warming (which I deny) but this is very real and concrete.  Undeniable. I don't know whether to  be fatalistic about this or what? It would seem to me any sane person on earth would unite to stop this.  Unlike "global warming" , it could be done.  Uniting both the left and the right.  Am I right about this, or just being crazy?  If the oceans die, we'll die too.

God should wipe out 80% of humanity to save this planet. Perhaps he will. That's the space I'm in this morning. Sorry. When I was born in 1957 there were 2.9 billion people on the earth. Now there are 7.1 billion.

I have for well over a decade held the opinion that the "warmers" were doing a great disservice to environmentalism. By choosing a possible outcome of biblical proportions that may or may not happen may get press coverage (check), attention (check) and government talk of action (check), there is a real problem here. That is, if the predicted outcomes do not happen, then the whole environmentalist movement will get a big black eye.

Given that there are so many facts like the one in the original article that are real, why did the shaky predictions get so much press?

It's wrong to wish that 80% of all people were dead.  The only life you control is your own.  No need to ask God about stepping in.

You've already had your life.  If population reduction is so critical, perhaps you should accelerate your own exit.  If you check out 20 years early, maybe you will make things slightly better for a dozen or a half-dozen young people who haven't had their lives yet.

I will try to watch that youtube video some time.  Right now my Sennheiser headphones' plastic head band has broken and I tried fixing it yesterday with superglue and bicarbonate of soda, haven't dared move it yet to see if it has mended properly or most likely not. 

You raise an interesting point.  I need to look up when plastics were invented, because it represents a huge turning point, both for our physical environment and metaphorically, and not least in the world of finance with plastic money.

Plastics are all around us now.  Even as a small child I must have been somehow aware of a different world as I found plastic things upsettingly ugly, in comparison to the real stuff which must have been mostly long vanished by then anyway.  I find it strange even watching Urbex (Urban Explorer) videos where people go inside derelict houses and fillm, that I find anything post second world war just feels like old tat, people's dirty underwear, whereas anything before that feels old and beautiful, especially anything older than the twentieth century. And photographs of old English cities look so beautiful, in comparison with the plastic cities now with plastic rubbish bins and yellow road paint and stuff you see so much you don't even notice any more.

Population explosion in poor countries is a serious issue.  Even the writer Doris Lessing said she thought the population explosion in Africa, which she ascribed to the use of wheat as a cheap crop, is the cause of violence and other social problems. European birth rates are so low they don't even replace. I recently saw a graph of Venezuala's population explosion since the 1960's, and you have to wonder if that has something to do with what is now happening, and also that their whole economy is based on oil, from which plastics are made.... You do get the feeling somebody evil benefits from all this.

Old photographs of pre second world war London, poor areas even more than rich areas are beautiful beyond anything there nowadays, rich or poor. Something has happened to our environment, such a big change we can't even see it properly.

Somebody I know got back from China, and I turned green with envy that they got to see the Forbidden City, but they said it was full of crowds and tourists.  And the souvenir shops are full of plastic tat.  China gets sold as the Silk Road, but that hasn't been there for hundreds of years.

Thanks for posting this.  



I will certainly give it a watch and mentally prepare. 

I agree with Brunt.  The warming mania helps people turn a blind eye.

I broke my Sennheiser cables once and got them repaired. You don't toss high quality products. I guess I'm a twat too.

If you agree with the OP's sentiment that over 5 billion people should die just to take care of a bit of plastic, I won't disagree with your self-assessment.

I thought you were referring to Silverfishes post. She wasn't the one who wrote that.
