Have you noticed a real push with the MMGW religion lately? Of course the answer is for the US to give up more money,while China, Russia etc. chug away.There are some statements that I seriously doubt their veracity.Like 2014 and 2015 were the hottest in human history.How in the Hell can they know that? These people are doubling down on their lies and are counting on the indoctrinated generations of children to one day accept this as unquestioned truth.God help us.

Trying to get me started? Singapore is supposedly the cleanest city in the world. I'm guessing that doesn't include their harbor. Some of the dirtiest crap I've ever seen. Hong Kong is as bad. This whole notion that if "we" do something is just a political smokescreen. The rest of the world doesn't care.

Maybe the way to clean the ocean:

This Genius Bucket Sucks Trash And Oil Right Out Of The Sea

The water filtration system is like one you’d find in a fish tank, but it’s designed for an entire ocean.

Two Australian surfers have quit their jobs (http://www.abc.net.au/news/2015-12-20/seabin-designed-by-australian-surfers-to-start-cleaning-up-ocean/7044174) and come up with a brilliant solution to combat themillions of tons of trash (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2015/02/13/world-ocean-plastic-trash_n_6674182.html) in our oceans.

Andrew Turton and Pete Ceglinski’s Seabin invention (http://www.abc.net.au/news/2015-12-20/seabin-designed-by-australian-surfers-to-start-cleaning-up-ocean/7044174) is an ocean-cleaning device so simple and effective, we’re wondering why it took so long.


The water filtration system is much like what you’d find in a fish tank, but it has the potential to clean up an entire ocean:

Good luck with cleaning the ocean up. Do you know once you;re more thn 10 mikes out Navy ships dump their trash in the ocean? I was appalled. How many years have we done WestPacs and they just dump pure trash in the water. I wouldn't want to explore that sea floor. Not to mention all bodies got dumped there as well prior to Korea.

As in all things, we're as bad as everyone else. We just like to pretend we aren't.

In its early morning news broadcasts (1am onwards, London time), the BBC links up with its Singapore studio, and we all get treated to the early morning Singapore skyline outside the studio's window. I've lost count of the number of times a smog has been in evidence .... :laugh:

Yeah, but we get off a ship where you can see oil and dead fish off the fantail, and go into a city where you can't even chew gum. And they don't sell Corona beer at the Hard Rock. Losers. :laugh:

Their not selling Corona beer is obviously the really important point here :rolleyes: .... how about a good pint of Guinness .. ?

I can't drink that stuff. That isn't beer. It's a meal. And no, the actual hypocrisy is what hit me. You can get caned for throwing out your chewing gum, while your water looks like something that came out of my truck at oil change time.

I WAS miffed about the lack of Corona though. :laugh:
