People don’t care about their environment because they don’t see any direct effect on themselves personally. In this area people toss garbage, old fridges, freezers, TVs, plastics of all kinds into the forest areas.
They don’t realize that much of this garbage will take a 100 years to break down, some never will decompose. This is a big tourist area with a large lake and a lot of boats. People will dump oil and gas right into the lake and they say, ‘well, it’s a big lake, it won’t be noticeable’. Then a family of ducks comes swimming by and those ducklings get covered with oil. Well, it’s only one family of ducks, it’s not going to hurt anything, is what people say.
People continually toss coffee cups, chip bags, candy wrappers out of their cars while driving down the highway and say, ‘who cares, it won’t hurt anything’. But it all hurts the environment and it’s not hard to dispose of garbage properly. But it comes back to people don’t care because they don’t see any immediate effect on themselves personally. Let someone else deal with it. People often say, it’s not my problem. That is why people ruin their own environment.
Since the last century, mens evolve a lot in technology, power ressource, making our life easier at the first look. But at wich cost?
We slowly destroying our beautiful planet, our lands, sea and our own health. Why? Well obviously the first and main reason is for money. Big companys and fortune in this world dosn’t care to destroy our world until they can make more profit. The way they grow food, ogm, to get more profit, for cheaper cost
Stroughing rubish and toxic product in our ocean who create island of rubish, barely a new continent, who destroy completly the beauty underwater. All this to avoid to pay to destroy those things properly. This work for many other things..
Also the way we live, what we buy, we accept what they do by buying their product, but of course not everyone have enough money to buy bio healthy food. It have a cost and sadly we don t have choice sometime.
But at least we should do our best, even with little action, to preserve our world, to save it. Because he need us now more than ever. Or maybe the world will realise than we are the problem, the humans, and he will wipe us out to save himself. React until their is hope.
