A garbage swirl in the Pacific twice the size of Texas we may have to Colonize!

You only have one Mother and we are all killing ours!

In honor of earth week I wanted to do a story on how dire the situation on the health or our planet really is. I started warning of the changing environment and our involvement in it when I was in high school in 1970. My efforts were always laughed at but it is too late to turn around and no one is laughing any more. Anyway I have written so extensively in the past it would take a book so I will just supply a link from an expert and whistle blower as to Global nuclear cover up, Depleted uranium, Gulf war Syndrome,increased Autism Diabetes Cancer, and how we have in just this one respect poisoned our own Mother. Mother Earth! please read and watch the videos

I have written extensively on the growing water and environmental wars amongst everything else. So I thought I would just supply the link of a story I did on 2/1/09 that with all the planets just developing crises The World Economic Forum was overwhelmed Likewise I have also written in the past about the huge swirl of garbage in the Pacific ocean.

After happening onto Fabien Cousteau discussing the fact that it has now doubled in size in just 2 years and is now twice the size of Texas I was stunned and wanted to point this out. Fabien Cousteau on the dire condition of our ocean

Ocean Pollution Grows Larger From 100 Million Tons of Garbage .

there are huge islands of garbage swirling together into ever-growing "cyclones" of debris

Continent-sized swirl of rubbish raises alarm , it is a horrible new Habitat

* Wake up we are killing our Mother and not with kindness. We throw away 43,000 tons of food away every day in America. That is sick in itself! The world is starving hell even Americans are starving and we just throw away 43,000 tons of food a year. Makes me want to scream.
* We are drowning in trash. A family of 5 generates 25 pounds of trash a day. What is our Population? Figure it out!
* We use 100 million plastic bags per year. enough is enough!

* In closing We are running out of potable water and at the same time much of our chemicals we use to grow our food ends up in the ocean along with all our other debris. As a result the monstrous garbage swirl in the pacific described above is only one. There are many and they are in every ocean. The debris field in the pacific is 90 feet deep. Seems to and is twice the size of Texas. Seems to me that this should spawn a new industry for former fishermen. I do not remember the size of fishing nets but I do know they go down 90 feet. Seems to me like a business can be made.

Leave port empty go to these debris fields and bring a catch of garbage and debris back. Instead of getting paid by the pound for the fish you catch you get paid by the pound for what you remove from the debris field. I am sure it can be monitored and we could burn it as an energy source at extreme heats. We have to do something. We are drowning in our Garbage. It is taking over the world. The world as we knew it is already gone. The world as we know it is right behind unless we wake up and yesterday not next year!

I think before the humans get around to doing anything substantive, earth herself may rise up as she has periodically done, and wipe humanity from the scene.

One really big pandemic, like the black plague, or something almost always fatal could do the trick.

We need to reduce humanity back to a level at which the planet can survive us. About a billion, more or less...

Unfortunately, that means about 5.5 BILLION of us have to die.

And the rest have to be reduced to struggling for mere subsistence...

No skin off my nose, as I have no children, and my genes end with me...

Cf: Hobbes and Malthus...

Hi Woody
I have to agree! Earth does occasionally cleanse itself and it is necessary. I have always thought that was the intention of aids but man has found a way to intervene even there. Billions are going to have to die. I have 4 sons three are lifers and I have Grand Children but no skin off my ass either. Whatever it takes!

Actually, they say now it's twice the size of the U.S.

Hi Helen
That one is in the Pacific. It is 90 feet deep and will stretch all the way from California to Japan. That is only one and there are many in every ocean. I do not understand how cleaning it up is not an industry!
