    Seriously though, return to your homes and recycle while 98% of the plastic produced goes straight into the ocean without ever reaching your consumer hands. There is nothing you can do anymore, not even the one big thing is going to be able to fix this. No "conscious consumerism," no "voting with your wallet," and there's certainly no voting your way out of this one. The plastic is in your brain already anon, it's entirely possible that I'm talking more to it than you at this point.We will continue chewing up the planet until we can't anymore, and then we'll be cut loose and set adrift to catch and kill whatever's left, just like the ghost nets out in the ocean: still fishing despite having long outlived their purpose.

    Eat, drink, and be merry. For tomorrow we die.

        You're partly right. It was just fine where it was. Demons are only an issue if you're headed for hell or if you, spoiler alert
        Dig too greedily and too deep, and bring the demons up to your home. The solution is simply to stop, first by slowing as sensibly and compassionately as possible so people who still don't have their seat belts unfastened don't just fly through the glass, then by actively reversing and pulling away from the cliff.

        Save soil, let soil save us, we got 20-30 years before rampant chaos. It starts with us. These corporate pussies and elites don't actually have a creative or original bone in their body. Their purpose is to rule. If they rule over a population that only respects them if they serve the earth's interests first, rather than our own selfish indulgences, then they (or at the very least, their children who are watching and soaking up all the trends/art/lingo etc), will naturally cave in. Their goal is just to be the 'best of the best', well we're the basis that they 'improve upon'. If we refuse to give them a base-line to march to and just blame them for 'not fixing everything', we deserve to burn and we will. We're complicit in this, we're as guilty as they are. The change starts from within.

                Doesn’t change the fact that it still is just a shift the blame tactic. Call it their fault so you don’t have to do anything besides talk shit online. The big guys in charge are the ones who need to do something and we need to pressure them into being responsible for the plastic trash they produce, not just whine about another country and be an butthole to some poor person who have no power over it. Elites frick the environment and blame the poor and continue fricking the environment while people like you harass the poor and nothing is done to stop shit.
                Also plastic is used to produce stuff that doesn’t have plastic in it too. Parts used in the manufacture tools, containers, all sort of products used in factures come with plastic, you gotta make sure they are disposing it properly and the only effective way is pressuring the authorities into making it obligatory. You can’t expect the common people to pressure and fiscalize them all, you need it to be in the law and the ones who don’t follow it to be punished. You also need powerful countries like USA pushing it into other countries as well but instead countries like USA does the opposite and whine that if others can frick the environment they can do it too.

                Only 21% of US fish consumption per value comes from farms. And they usually farm species with a higher value so the amount is much lower per volume. And still doesn’t address the fact that you are being manipulated into whining about others instead of demanding authorities in your own country to do something. Also as pointed out aquaculture also have its impact and sometimes it is pretty high, we should also demand more investments on reducing the impact as explained in earlier posts.

                no, its because its a distant place, no matter what you do its not going to change the fact that theyre still polluting, all youre doing its delaying the inevitable destruction of the oceanic biosphere with years of suffering for all the creatures in it, its the equivalent of patching up holes on a sinking ship while other people on board are making holes faster than you can fix, at that point youre not solving the problem, youre just stroking your ego

                If Europe and USA form an agreement of non-pollution they can pressure China in fixing their shit by economic pressure. What usually happens is that Europe and Japan join but USA don’t making the whole thing pointless. Without USA undeveloped countries also reject it making it even worse. You guys have two arguments, one that it is already fricked and there is no point in doing anything and other that it is alarmism and everything is fine so there is no point is making sacrifices. Don’t you see that both benefit the same people?

                and even then third world nations have to pollute because it is the cheaper option,they dont have the money be able to do all this environmentally friendly practices, people like to say that solar and wind are the future, when they dont realize how expensive that stuff is compared to every other power source

                We should be recycling methane into into fuel like some companies already do like opal

                methane is a fuel already, the problem is its a gas, and filtering gases is extremely expensive

    1. Instead of not eating seafood you should look for business that profit from the oceans in a sustainable way. If every person in the world magically could get a portion of any seafood they wanted per day destroying the fishing industry then there would be absolutely no incentive for the elites to totally trash the ocean now that there is no major player profiting from it.
    2. This is very unlikely to happen but organize people into pressuring the government in getting their shit together. Elites are very efficient at diverging the attention of the masses. For example: the plastic trash, they will incentive practices that have negligible effect just to make people feel better like banning plastic supermarket bags or plastic straws or pass the blame around so it is never their fault, it is always a scumbag from a different race far away from them, this way they can keep being part of the problem while people get angry at someone else. Example: you probably have heard about how the plastic waste is Asia’s fault etc. most of these plastic waste came from the west, countries like China would buy plastic for recycling. Countries like USA instead of sending clean plastic for recycling they would send non-recyclable plastic and garbage mixed in, all this trash would end up in China’s landfills and wind/rain take these to the rivers and from rivers to the ocean. Sure they have their share of blame but so does the west. When China said “enough” and demanded them to stop sending garbage mixed in the west response was to send it to different countries instead so China taking action had no effect. This will keep going like this until people stop being baited in shifting blame and demand their own government to do their part.

            It depends on how the ones you get were caught. Were they caught at a sustainable rate? Sustainable fishing depends on a healthy and thriving population so they can fish a portion without affecting the population in the long term. These people have the best interest of the fish population in mind because their life-hood depend on it. Is it fished in a way that doesn’t cause much collateral damage? Some fishing practices cause lots of colateral damage destroying habitats and killing other animals that will be discarded like pic. Vaquitas went extinct because they are a bycatch from shrimp that supply America. USA was too late in setting policies demanding better fishing practices. Aquaculture can be a mixbag, apparently farmed shellfish is good while shrimp have a lot of issues. I believe farmed shrimp could be improved a lot if techniques to recycle its waste were developed/applied but until there is a pressure for it people will just dump it. In resume, you need to see what is available where you live and do your homework to find out where it came from and how it was caught/farmed. If people start buying more from the ones doing things right it would be an incentive for the others to start adopting better practices as well.

              this a new company thats doing better farming, also i think you can just feed their poop to plants or snails or something, or just dump in the ocean to feed and some animals will eat that

                Could be used for growing plants to be used as feed for the shrimp in case of fresh water or algae in both cases. Possibly could be paired with filter feeding like oysters if that doesn’t affect their taste or survival but all that require research and incentives.
