The disposal method I described earlier is a whole lot more fun.

There are seven billion humans and more each day all making polllution, there are only a few volcanos.
Don't you think its time we started to take care of the only home we have, Earth?

Following that logic, it's perfectly OK for me to just dump my used motor oil and antifreeze in the river when I change them instead of hauling them to the disposal site, right?

Frankly, I suspect these are just some macho BS postings. No educated , responsible adult would actually do these things.

No. We are not going to do squat to "take care" of Earth because we can't. What will and is happening is that Earth, aka Nature, will "take care" of us. One way or the other. Nature always solves its problems and it's been doing so since the moment Earth was created. No reason to think it's gonna stop now. If the solution this time around is the elimination of man from the planet, that's what will happen. To think that man can put even a dent in the outcome is naive indeed.

Wouldn't it be nice if the rest of our countries would follow China's example in controlling population? If they hadn't of done so there resourses would have been eaten up by hungry mouths and they wouldn't be in the position they are today. Maybe they are the smart ones and we the dummies

Any enviro nut that looked at the situation ,

and wants to be part of the "solution" would chose a VW or similar DIESEL.

So there is no way to dump old gas in his own tank.

Therefore evaporative disposal.

Seriously? Look at what "man" has done to clean up rivers in the last twenty or thirty years. Look at the improvement in the Chesapeake Bay.

"Man" was in the habit of dumping all his garbage, oil, and industrial waste onto the ground and into the rivers. Once he got smart enough to see the results of this dumping, he stopped dumping and began taking steps to clean up the environment. It's working.

Again, letting gasoline evaporate is pollution. Nothing less, it's pollution.

Burning it in your boat or car is too.

Buy a bicycle and a sailbot without an engine if it really bothers you.
