Is It Time For a Worldwide Ban on Single-use Plastic Bags?

Let me state for the record, that with few exceptions, I do not like governmental bans or restrictions on personal behavior. […] There are, however, exigent circumstances when the harm being done is so massive that intervention in the form of bans is necessary. So it is with the worldwide pollution caused by the indiscriminate use of plastics for convenience rather than necessity.

PLASTIC TRASH IS A BIGGER PROBLEM THAN GLOBAL WARMING

Forget the hokum about global warming. Plastic pollution can be seen everywhere. This problem is here now not some place in the distant future.

When Our Oceans Are Barren; Japanese Atrocities of Whales, Dolphins & Sharks

No, we have a few nations, Japan in particular, that behave with utter disregard to savage, mind numbing killing of sharks just for their fins. Harvesting sharks as a food source is one thing … killing hundreds of thousands of sharks just for their fins and tossing the rest of the carcasses away is criminal waste.

The Japanese apparently feel that all of the oceans fish, sharks, dolphins, and whales are there to feed their voracious appetites for sea food and the rest of the world be dammed. It’s part of their culture, don’t ya know!

It is ironic that for a country that has led the world in so many environmental issues that we have such a shameful record of ignoring this hazard … all in the name of convenience, of course!

How’s this for a statistic?Plastic constitutes a whopping 90 percent of all trash floating in the oceans, and that represents as much as 80 percent of all plastic waste on earth!

SHOCKING VIDEO… OUR LEGACY OF PLASTIC TRASH & THE DESTRUCTION OF THE OCEANS & OUR ENVIRONMENT

It remains incomprehensible to me how ANYONE who talks about saving the environment and the oceans can continue to use single use plastic bags, products, and bottles. Less than a minute into the video, pause it for a moment and take a good look at the contents inside the stomach of that bird.

ANIMALS CLOSE TO EXTINCTION; LAYING WASTE TO THESE TREASURES

After seeing these pictures, one has to ask if this the legacy our generation wants to leave to those we leave behind … a complete absence of God’s best creations … photos of what polar bears and lions used to look like?
