Dude this and lots of environmental issues are the result of our living practices .Is what it is. Pointing fingers to date has resulted in exactly what ?
Take a look at the dump under EPA regulations into Puget Sound from the US side of the fence. As an example.
I have to ask what it is that we are treating our waist for ? We all live in a garbage in garbage out society, based on our consumption of all things earthly.
At this point there is no silver bullet to our growing problem. Pharmaceuticals are an issue, and not just from the dump of unused product.
We are all dumping our shite into , on, and over our environment.
Pointing fingers, placing blame North or South of "borders" for political gains solves nada, nothing. Smoke and mirrors.
Standing up and suggesting the Boating community is to blame for unclean water ways makes great headlines, but changes very little. As an example.
We move the production the manufactured goods of our consumption to areas of the world with little to no environmental concerns. We wash our hands of it and believe we are saving the planet, when in all reality it saved a few bucks on a short term basis. Costing jobs and the chance to change our planet for the better. Yet cleans up nothing.
As consumers allot of the change has to come from us, what it is we consume that we then discard back to our planet.
I am old, nothing I do is going to change this, I have to consume, spend cash pay tax, etc etc, to be part of our society.
Some random thoughts on a windy , raining day loving the view out my window.
