In The Great Pacific Garbage Patch by Ben Segall you’ll learn there’s a patch of garbage that’s not twice the size of Texas floating in the Pacific Ocean right now. You should know what you throw in the ocean comes right back to you so this is a serious problem. You’ll also learn this is a global problem why that means its solution will require action on a global scale. Please do reduce, reuse, recycle, and refuse plastic because all the plastic ever made is still around, but much more will need to be done than just that. Seriously. Watch below. Continue reading
Here are some shocking stats on ocean pollution. It’s important for people to understand, particularly when it comes to pollution of our waterways, everything we do comes back to us. Doesn’t it make sense that we should make the effort to make only good things come back to us? Check it out below! Continue reading
While politicians are looking to support the Keystone XL pipeline and regular people seem indifferent or excited about jobs, the Kalamazoo River in Michigan is still undergoing a tar sands pipeline spill cleanup from 2010. The people who live near the river tells their stories about young children vomiting black substances, business still not recovering from having to shut down for 3 months, and job creation only for those who have to clean up the spill after the pipeline burst devastated their communities.
They ask you to remember it’s not a question of will the pipeline burst but when.

Lately, I’ve been giving some thought to doubt. Doubt has been used a powerful tool too prevent people in the U.S. to disagree with climate change, to ignore all the warning signs of our mangled, destructive food system, and yes, to get people to still think our president is actually a Muslim.
In this video climaterealityproject.org shows the other times when doubt was used to sell folks on harmful products and even attack those who disagreed. The perfect correlation here is the cigarette companies claiming their products were safe when they knew better. Also, the example of DDT was used here. People were so convinced the insecticide was safe they sent threatening letters to scientist and writer Rachel Carson who wrote the powerful book, Silent Spring, and about the scourge they were to this planet. Due to the efforts of environmentalists the use of DDT was outlawed by Congress.
So what happened to the manufacturers of DDT? Did they go out of business? Nope, they reinvented themselves as biotech corporation Monsanto and now they engineer your food and they can vote since they are a person!
As we discussed in VIDEO: Concerned About Chemtrails? Watch “The Great Culling” Official Air Trailer director Paul Wittenberger and photographer Chris Maple attempt to get some answers for you with “The Great Culling”. This documentary is based on the idea “What we eat, drink, and breathe is under attack!” Think you can escape this? As we discussed in Why Bottled Water Shouldn’t Be Popular With Minorities bottled water may not save you. In this trailer the focus is on what’s in the water. Are you a sheep about to get culled out of humanity? Well then, you need to know what’s going on!
Description: “For all of those who are unfamiliar with the term “culling”, it is simply a less harsh term than the word “killing”. Usually culling is done in animal groups when there is overpopulation of a specific species. But now it’s you. It is our time to be “Culled”. It is known as “the thinning of the herd”. Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature.” Is the first commandment of the Georgia Guidestones coming to fruition? Is the Great Culling being carried out now? For those who continue to not pay attention, you are the “Sheep” and you will be “culled”.”

Ever heard of chemtrails? Many of us are suspicious of what’s in the air, food and water these days and for good reason although we may not be able to readily say what the problems are. Director Paul Wittenberger and photographer Chris Maple attempt to get some answers for you with “The Great Culling”. This is the first trailer addressing what’s in the air. Continue reading
“The pollution is there, the problem is there, so we cannot go to the river. And being as we’re based on fishing, there is not any other way we can live with our family. Please and please, in order for peace to reign, let the federal government look into this problem immediately.” –Jacob Uka, community chairman
In late December oil giant Shell had a major oil spill in Nigeria’s Niger Delta. While Shell claims less than 40,000 barrels have leaked so far, some environmentalists say “as much as 550 million gallons of oil poured into the delta during Shell’s roughly 50 years of production in Nigeria — a rate roughly comparable to one Exxon Valdez disaster per year. An estimated 11 million gallons was released during the 1989 Exxon Valdez spill in Alaska.” -news.yahoo.com
So there’s a history of extensive environmental damage in the Niger Delta and this latest spill is the worst in a decade, but this has not happened with out protest form the people. Continue reading
