The Slow-Building Apocalypse
Headline: A bipartisan group of senators warns that, without concerted international action, there will be more plastic by weight than fish in the oceans by 2050.
What about the weight of all the plastic that’s inside the fish. In which column is that counted? I see headlines like this every day. One yesterday reported the increasing amount of bleaching of coral reefs. Every day lately there’s been a headline about the unprecedented severity of California wildfires. Immediate international action is needed to hold off the slow-building ecological apocalypse. It’s almost inconceivable that it will happen. Four of the largest and most powerful countries in the world, India, China, Brazil, and the United States, as well as many others, are led by sociopaths. The prognosis for humanity is poor.
