This is the most significant post I have written so far and I can’t even begin to explain how difficult it is for me to write. How can I express that we have effectively murdered thousands without readers wanting to turn away?
Midway is one of the most remote places on Earth. It is 2000 miles from the closest continent. The juxtaposition of the natural beauty of Midway and the undeniable truth that our consumerism is killing it, is shocking.
There is little difference between us dropping a bottle in the street and our country dropping a bottle in the ocean. Rather than considering this a problem for higher powers to solve, remember that you are the country and together we must prevent further damage.
We have to care for the world because who else is there? The birds haven’t established courts of law and governments but then again the birds haven’t single-handedly destroyed the planet either.
Animals cannot be expected to differentiate between their food and our waste. This is our problem and we’re making it theirs by polluting their habitats.
We cannot shift the blame any longer. Rather than avoiding the atrocities that are staring us in the face, we need to address the problem and protect and restore the natural world before it is past saving.
We can’t do it by ourself? I beg to differ. There are seven billion people in the world and you’re telling me that
half a quarter a tenth of the population is not enough? A tenth of seven billion is seven hundred million.
