Our Earth – a rubbish dump?

Those who live inland don’t to see what those of us who live on the coast do, every day, during the Sout West Monsoon. Less beach and more rubbish including tons of plastic. Caring volunteers with little help from government clean beaches everywhere.

We may be fighting a losing battle but there is no excuse not to fight.

By 2050, our oceans will have more plastic trash than fish.

It’s shameful. Half of the plastic made we use just once and throw out, choking our seas and all the animals in it.

But in days, our governments can stem this tide when they meet at a historic summit to outline their clean ocean commitments. Public pressure just got #2 polluter Indonesia to commit to a 70% reduction in plastic waste! Now we need to go after the other top polluters.

If one million of us get behind a global call the Head of the UN Environment Programme will announce our petition from the summit podium and work with us to push countries to ban single-use plastics and let our oceans breathe again.

    1. Absolutely, it’s virtually unsustainable at the current level, I believe. I’ve been writing a poem called ‘The Wrecking Machine’ inspired by an interview with Noam Chomskey and the surreal presidency of DJT. When I write stuff like that I get rather depressed and then think maybe I’m lucky because I might not be around when the disintegration of life as we have known it happens full on. In the meantime, I have to finish my novel. If it’s as good as ‘A Place…’ I’ll be delighted. Keep well. James
