Are you aware that Fukushima the nuclear power plant, dumps tons of radioactive water into the ocean each day? Did you know Chernobyl is still radioactive to this day and a safety hazard to European health? Were you aware of the total number of oil pipe line breaks world wide and the total ammount of oil leakage into the oceans? How about the oil pipe line spills world wide? The total super fund clean up sites around the world? That studies have shown high levels of PCB's in fish and polar bears in the polar regions? Now take the total square footage of every road and building world wide and remove that areas square footage from the worlds ability to produce biomaterial capable of removing CO2 and were you aware of the bees being killed off? How about the total number of people and the waste generated world wide by those people? Have you ever thought about any of it?

Now as a note, i am not a tree huger by any means! Just wondering how many folks have ever thought of these issues who are anime fans?

As Sagan said "We, who cannot even put our own planetary home in order, riven with rivalries and hatreds; Are we to venture out into space?", "Just now, there are a great many matters that are pressing in on us, that compete for the money it takes to send people to other worlds. Should we solve those problems first? Or are they a reason for going?", "And on top of all this, we're making a mess of our planet and becoming a danger to our self's" and "We humans have already precipitated extinctions of species on a scale unprecedented since the end of the Cretaceous Period."

Being someone who is all about space travel I have looked back at our world and what we are doing to it. Even with my dream of space exploration I don't want to travel to outer worlds if we just going to use their resources and then move on after destroying them. We humans in our current state are parasites.

I highly recommend everyone viewing this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tijxMHhuwGQ

Sure but I really find it quite hard to care enough to think about seriously from time to time cause just like any other human, I'm consumed by my own troubles and problems

Being aware of issues and taking real action are two very different things.

The spreading of information is by all means a good thing, but some issues will not be resolved from words alone.

Anyone who went to school would be aware of them. This question is odd.

I just wonder, I mean the oceans are full of plastics, a man made problem, CO2 is a man made problem, oil leaked on land and lost in the oceans again a man made problem, but collectively our leaders ignore those issues and we as a group allow it. Sigh go back to sleep and wonder when the planets no longer alive.

There's nothing wrong with caring about the environment. Wish people would stop thinking that. Caring about the environment is good, especially seeing the direction our global environment is going.

Nuke it and everything will be fine!..


not that we could fix the earth... -___- atleast not in many...many...many years even then it can't be that much solved either.
Also yes its good to do something now, as everything can lead to make everyday life worse for everyone.
