It doesn't take much to throw a set of blue nitryl gloves and a small garbage bag in your pocket when going for a beach walk and pick up any plastic or non-biodegradable refuse. Hundreds of people stroll beaches every day. Think of what you can accomplish and it's good exercise.

We just need to educate the people on the other side of the prevailing ocean current direction. Mind you it's not that difficult to send some graphic pictures and reports to de-salination plants around the world and Say, "Ok, you got rid of the salt but you're drinking this. I hope it tastes good." Hmmmm sounds like a good idea. Maybe they should get a copy of the film along with this note.

Humans are stupidly naive - I'm convinced it's that simple. If there's only 100 people left on earth they will still follow one leader and will still consume more than they should. We are a species that is designed somehow to feel entitled and we just take, and take and take.
A small percentage of people may be naive, but there are far more who simply do not care. Some pretend and others are quite open about it but exactly who doesn't want a nice house, toys for summer and winter, a lush green lawn and a stock portfolio weighted heavy in hypocrisy?

Change will come hard and the messenger will be shot. Eventually a focused majority will breach that fragile veneer dividing today's consumption and common sense. As the drawbacks of cultural greed increasingly show up in profit margins rather than street protests the steady march of inevitable change will continue to ask us if we want to ride or be left behind.

In the end we will embrace change because we have no choice, the only question is how long will acceptance take and how much more needs to be lost before we can get there.
Excellent and true.

Have you ever gotten sick after a visit to the beach?
