Good Morning...

We are the greatest nation of consumers and polluters in the history of the planet.

We should be very proud...

What an eye opener! You know these things in your heart but forget them on a daily basis. I personally want so much to make so many changes for ourselves and our home but must admit they are daunting. Thank you for the video!

It's not just Americans that cause this. People all over the world are careless and callous and cavalier about throwing things away into the environment. Every human on earth should be forced to watch this video see the results of their actions. If you want more information on the "Great Pacific Gyre" visit http://www.algalita.org/
This is the guy that discovered it. He has some amazing videos of his own!

Nutmeg Knoll-

I hope this post was helpful to you in trying to live by your convictions.
Yes the changes we humans need to make in our lifestyles are daunting but we really have no choice.
We will either make them voluntarily, or they will be made for us through the laws of nature.
It appears, at this late date, that, as a whole, we don't have the comprehension to understand our predicament, or the will to do much about it.

No, it isn't just Americans, but per capita, we consume and waste more than any other country in the world, and I live here, so this is where I feel my responsibilty lies addressing issues right here at home.

And yes, I'm quite familiar with Captain Charles Moore and his work through Algalita, but thank you for sharing that info here, some of readers may not be.

Maybe I'll post one of his videos here too, something I've already done at my facebook page.

its disgusting that ''we'' have been allowed to do this.
the human race needs stomped on a few times...who's gonna do that...
each person thats trying to do their best is a good start and a hope for the future.
