Re: More than 2000 miles from the nearest continent - This film should be seen by the entire world
Why are some of the birds doing well, flying around by the hundreds of thousands, etc, but other are dying, even before they leave the nest?

This problem has been around for many decades, but the birds seem to be thriving, overall.

Sad, yes, but why are some birds stuffed with plastic garbage while others are doing seemingly fine?

Find a dead bird, add a handful of plastic caps and junk, take a picture, and there you go.

In Atlanta and Los Angeles, for example, Latino and Latina workers, earn minimum wages with no benefits, have temporary status and are subject to unhealthy conditions. Remarkably, these people do not even count in federal statistics. Industrial injuries and deaths of temporary workers are not recorded, despite the fact that temporary workers are exposed to more danger than most workers in the economy.

Just flew from the mainland to Maui and back. The Tsunami debris headed towards the mainland is phenomenally humongous. For as far as the eye can see at 25K to 30K feet....a sea of debris in all directions. Incredible.

Ever piece of plastic ever produced is still in tact. It's a worse global disaster than Nuclear or Chemical. Added together, all three, and it's a death sentence for all living species......including us eventually.

Re: More than 2000 miles from the nearest continent - This film should be seen by the entire world
Most of these points have already been made but to reiterate:

A: Some of the shots are suspicious. I don't believe that much plastic can fit in a birds stomach.

B: Natural selection at work. I know damn well all seagulls don't eat plastic. You can see them pick up stuff and drop it if its not edible. If they are eating plastic its due to overpopulation and starving.

C: What the hell is it with all this "humans are so terrible", feel bad about yourself mentality. Most of the people the have the biggest bleeding heart "reaction" to these types of things are the same type that like to blather on about how people should live, enjoying the smell of their own farts while riding in their prius.

D: They're fucking birds. If you want something to feel bad about go watch fat ass Rob Reiner tell you about starving HUMAN CHILDREN with distended bellies and flies swarming around them.

I'd like to share a revelation that I've had during my time here. It came to me when I tried to classify your species and I realized that you're not actually mammals. Every mammal on this planet instinctively develops a natural equilibrium with the surrounding environment but you humans do not. You move to an area and you multiply and multiply until every natural resource is consumed and the only way you can survive is to spread to another area. There is another organism on this planet that follows the same pattern. Do you know what it is? A virus. Human beings are a disease, a cancer of this planet. You're a plague and we are the cure.

Thanks for sharing the video OP.
The responses are quite telling.
One of the biggest reasons that things have gotten so bad, and that the needed reversals haven't occurred as quickly as they could, is highlighted in this thread. Misunderstanding, denial, pessimism, and apathy:

We have to DIE! We should all kill ourselves and let the world recover from our evil.

Don't worry the earth will recover quickly when we are gone. Or we evolve beyond of destroying our surroundings. Everything is temporary

It seems like those birds are all still breeding and reproducing fairly well...

Everything dies. Nothing is meant to survive forever.

Not even us.
 Quoting: Shingen


^^Really?? The solution to rampant environmental degradation and collapsing biodiversity is that all humans must die?

No this is not the solution. First of all, who will maintain the reactors and waste facilities if humans were to just disappear? Might accelerate the mass extinction we are facing just a bit.

This negativity reflects a very negative personal outlook, but is definitely not any kind of solution.

On the other hand, it's so refreshing to see that some posters have provided some really great potential avenues for positive change, and more realistic outlooks:

I see you feelings about this are very selfless and I can admire that completely. Having said that you might want to keep your chin up a bit. Just saying. Its really not that bad out there. Get out every now and then you might like it outside of your digital world. hope you have a great day. Humanity will surprise you when you least expect it.

 Quoting: R3B2 34185911


Great attitude R3B2!! There's more 'wonder' in the first 10 feet beyond your front door, if you care to really look, and find it, than all the digital channels combined.

I think that this year folks will start to see more value in people, rather than profit or things. Emotional banks, and not money banks, after all, there is no money now a days anyway, it's all virtual.

But people are real, and helping another person goes a long way to creating a 'bank' of good ideas, and support, that does so much more than lending money to buy another useless item, that requires the corporation who makes it, to make fore ever greater profits, which forever keep treading on people and small busines to achieve that.

The best thing about an emotional bank, which could take the form of advice, community help, man power, or just emotional support to get people going on their own steam again, is that it cant be taxed, doesnt require endless rising profit, and can grow infinately large, or be as small as two people.

This is what is feared by those who seek control. The mechanisms of control meaning nothing to people any longer, and as such, cant be controlled.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 34026380


Human activities have caused an environmental catastrophe - it is undeniable. Change is inevitable - also undeniable. Each of us has a choice to decide what direction we would like that change to take.

Will we be part of the problem or part of the solution? Will you be a force working to oppose progress, or will you be a force that contributes to the promotion of responsible action?

The potential for people to work together to promote positive change is worth believing in, and worth fighting for.

One way or the other our days are numbered. If fish die out, so will we. If bees die, so will will. Thats if we don't die from mad cow disease from making grass eating cattle eat ground up offal, brains, etc. From God knows what animals?

I get the message of this video. But the makers should not think that they can deceive everybody.

It's obvious that the dead birds shown are selective of the junk they eat. One bird loves electronic goodies like capacitors, transistors, diodes, resistors and PCBs. Don't the filmmakers think that they should sort of put a variety of object in each bird. violin

I grew up hunting and fishing...still love to fish. Too busy with everything else to really hunt anymore. I do feel sorry for any animal that suffers for no reason. I'm no tree hugger though...far from it. I believe in the "sport" of nature...but still respect nature at the same time. I hate to see an animal in pain.

That being said, those birds, thousands of miles away, are the last thing I'm worried about right now. It's a struggle just survive ourselves. Everything is falling down around us. This freaking economy is killing us. Everyone is living payday to payday. Everyone I know is stressed to the breaking point over finances...and there's no relief in sight. I have a great job...my wife has a great job....neither of us will ever be able to afford to retire though. Every day, our money is able to buy less and less. Our world is a lake of quicksand, and the vine keeping us from going under is getting very slippery. One false step and you'll be sucked into the bottomless pit below. I truly fear for my children’s futures. If it’s this bad now, I can’t imagine how bad it will be in another ten or twenty years. Fuel, food, utilities, everything is getting harder and harder to purchase. The dollar is becoming more and more worthless.

So...sorry to seem cold hearted, but those damn birds are on their own.
