A friend of mine sent me these photos today. Many young children, especially if they live near the sea, could probably tell there's something wrong with these photos. Their parents could then tell them about dirty littered beaches, and tell them that it is important that beaches are kept clean for those creatures that live there and in the sea. It's no different from telling their children not to throw litter on the streets. It's good manners, it's normal practice, and it's common sense. All decent parents tell this to their children. They don't need environmental activists to do that. These pictures don't need any message or caption, let alone, there is no need for virtue-signaling.
The picture of the bird with a cup lid on it's beak, is bogus. Any bird would have no problem at all removing this. Some one has found a dead bird and forced this item onto it's beak, in order to create this image.
Only a naive fool, would be taken in by this
My question is ... what beaches are these? We encounter that situation along the coastline of British Columbia but it's not us, at least for the most part. All that stuff washes in after a tsunami in Japan or one of the other Asian countries.
It's an unfortunate reality that the undeveloped countries in Africa and Asia typically use their rivers as a garbage disposal system, then it all washes up on the shores of the developed nations who end up carrying the brunt of the consequences.
Yep. My parents had a zero tolerance policy for littering. We were responsible for our actions. Period.
Today, woke progressives see personal responsibility is old fashioned. They blame littering on the same thing they blame everything else. They see the world not as one built of personal responsibility but rather a patriarchal capitalist system where environmental issues will only be resolved with the Paris Accord and the elimination of fossil fuels.
As a child I was taught that "littering"was beyond the pale, mu Mum used to say if you wouldn't do that in your house you shouldn't do it on the streets. Of course in those days where we lived city councils wanted their town to be the 'best' there were older men employed to walk certain sections of town with a cart with bins on it whose sole job was to strip the streets of any litter that may have been dropped or blown about by the wind, they took their job seriously and would not hesitate to shout at young rascals who would drop their fish and chip wrappers in the gutter. Nowadays its all Styrofoam containers and curry, coke cans and needles. Do Mums and Dads even teach about litter dirt and clean streets
