Actually that is proof that WE were once on Mars.
That’s horrifying. Not the garbage, it’s just disgusting; but the implication that self-centered assholes (even if they don’t have such a thing) live(d) on Mars TOO.
Think about the trash we’ve ALREADY left on planets and moons in our system!! And do you think anyone has a contingency plan to retrieve that trash??? NO!!!! We’ve already left our calling card for other civilizations to see.
Well, Dave . . . thanks for starting off the New Year for me with one of the most depressing ( but unfortunately true ) cartoons. I’ll be cornering the market on coal this year . . . just for your Christmas stocking. :-)Please stay careful, stay safe and stay HEALTHY ! We love ya, Dave !
A plastic container doesn’t throw itself into the ocean. People are the problem. Whatever happened to those “death panels” we were promised?
We have met the enemy and he is us.
It shows that most people are lazy pigs that don’t care about their world.
All that trash from just one Mars bar.
And people wonder why alien intelligence has never made contact with us?
Not just the beaches. There’s always trash along the roads and highways. What makes people want to do that?!
Snow birds have been there for winter?
Most of the garbage of the world goes directly into the ocean. That has to stop! Microplastics are the biggest threat to our life on Earth, so all-pervasive that they are even showing up in placentas. Meanwhile, fools that we are, all our efforts go to trying to change the climate.
Blame SE Asia and China
What a sad comic.
When I was a child we always just threw stuff out the window of the car when we were driving, then we got a TV and started seeing “litterbug” ads. One day on the way in to town, mom threw something out the window and my brave little sister called her a litterbug. Mom looked shocked and after that we carried a trash bag in our car.
About plastic trash in the oceans:“ The results, published last November in Environmental Science & Technology, show that rivers collectively dump anywhere from 0.47 million to 2.75 million metric tons of plastic into the seas every year, depending on the data used in the models. The 10 rivers that carry 93 percent of that trash are the Yangtze, Yellow, Hai, Pearl, Amur, Mekong, Indus and Ganges Delta in Asia, and the Niger and Nile in Africa. The Yangtze alone dumps up to an estimated 1.5 million metric tons of plastic waste into the Yellow Sea.” https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/stemming-the-plastic-tide-10-rivers-contribute-most-of-the-plastic-in-the-oceans/
Oooo – look! Is that an aluminum can? We can get money by recycling those!
Keep it to punch lines, not preach lines.
Oh no! Another rover caught in a six-pack holder plastic! It’ll starve!!
So we did move to earth from mars…
How about a hard MIlwaukee PUNCH that’s safer than cigarette butts?
Just a little inaccurate, though … where are the used hypo needles and condoms?
