    Just like the Cuyahoga river. Randy Newman wrote a song about it. “The lord can make you tumble, the lord can make you turn, the lord can make you overflow, but the lord can’t make you burn. Burn on, big river, burn on”. It’s amazing what people will do to their environment…

    Sadly, to a lot of people, once something is outside their house, it is no longer in their “Environment”, and it’s someone else’s problem!
    Same thing applies to the brain-dead nitwits who throw their fast food containers out the car window.
    “Hey, it’s not in the car any longer, so it’s not in my environment!”

    “Liar as a child, thief as a man.” Littering is the most fundamental way of showing complete disrespect for our lifespace which we share with every other living thing. If we ever caught our children doing it, they would never do it again.

    “Pollution is just a left wing rumor like global warming.”

    Sometimes I wonder if the anti-regulatory crowd has an extra planet stashed away somewhere, where they can move once this one is completely uninhabitable. Or maybe they’ve just given up and think “I want to keep more of my money so my children can afford all the gas masks and water filters they’ll need once I’m dead and gone”.

    I seem to remember Dick (Dr. Evil) Cheney saying something about not worrying about environmental regulations, and climate change because he would be dead before there was too much difference in the environment.
    THAT’S the true anti-regulation (read G.O.P.) crowd’s feelings!

    Throwing stuff into garbage heaps is probably built into our genes. We’ve been doing it as long as we’ve been around. Archeologists love it — in my area, we look at the ancient trash heaps in Egypt to find Greek literature. There was a time when it didn’t matter too much — you could move to get away from the smell — but no longer. It’s a bad habit we’ve got to change.

    We’re fine as long as we die early. If not you have much pain to live with. Cancers, contaminations of dioxin and mercury etc. No place else to go. Maybe the rich can live in special places clean of pollutants, but we can’t do that.

    Masterskrain, fast food containers are nothing compared to the plague of “disposable” diapers!! However, in ancient cities, the sewers were in the middle of the streets, a little later, “gentlemen” walked on the curb side of the walk with their female companions, so they, not the woman would be struck by the offal thrown out upper windows.

    Today, like in the bay, we just flush our wastes “out of sight, out of mind”. Even with “modern” sanitation stations, a little short-cutting on design and costs, with the occasional raw sewage spill, is acceptable by most as opposed to spending the extra nickel to protect that out of sight environmental site.

    Trolls are those who put forth opinions independent of fact, often to provoke a response rather than a dialogue. They reveal themselves by refusing to acknowledge all the vast amount of information out there on their topic of choice, and then insult those who offer some. See, for example, the topics of Anthropogenic Global Warming (which is well established fact at this point, but not to many posters on this list), evolution, and the like.
    Saying “do not feed the trolls” is a way of saying not to engage with these people, as you are merely providing them the opportunity for the attention and response they crave.

    Thanks Motive. You are the polar opposite of a troll. Science magazine has an excellent article on the Antartica’s fate, the crashing Adelie penguin population,and diminishing sea ice, byJane Qui, called Winds of Change. Also is a new website,online forum for"climate experts representing the full range of views" Three respected American Climate scientists will be involved with the debate and skeptics are invited to discuss the issues. Trolls will be removed from the site by an advisory board who will guard the neutrality of the platform.
