Because most people don’t think, don’t care and just maybe, ‘We’ don’t deserve this once beautiful planet!! I say: ‘Send all polluters on a one way trip to Mars.’
Not a pleasant thing to say of my own country but it’s the truth. Animals do not foul their own nest – humans do! I cannot explain why humans drop rubbish when our surrounds can be so beautiful.
Much of the rubbish comes from ‘stuff’ that we buy that is claimed to ‘make us happy’. What a load of old cobblers (rubbish). It does not make us happy. My street has 65 houses. Each year I estimate that ‘verge collections’ amount to about four tonnes of old TVs, tables, chairs, fans, computer screens, bicycles, microwave ovens and so on. What we bought a year or so ago is now rubbish! My city has one and a half million people. All China has 1.3 billion people!! ‘How would it be if every house in China put out tonnes of rubbish like we do?’ They would drown in the stuff! Too many humans cannot, or will not think, of what is happening and that there will be consequences. I am glad to know that you will not be one of them.
