Saw this link on Feel Free to Laugh. If you press this link you can see what the oil spill would actually mean in your part of the world. It’s quite frightening and helps us to appreciate what it means for the people of Florida.
I keep hoping that the earth will find ways to clear up our mess, but then I read things about the “plastic soup” in the middle of the Pacific Ocean and wonder what is going to happen. For instance, yesterday I walked down a path near us, (on our regular route to walk the dog,) and there was a crisp packet. On the way back I picked it up and stuffed it in my pocket. I drew the line at all the other detritus that had found it way into an adjacent corner – you can only go so far.
Guess what? Today there was another crisp packet. What’s your view on litter and how we can educate people to care about their local environment?
