AP/5 Gyres

The Gulf of Mexico is dying before our very eyes; most large fish populations have been depleted in every ocean worldwide;  islands of plastic the size of states are floating throughout the seven seas, biblical sized blooms of jellyfish are taking over and 'no one knows why' (maybe, just maybe, because they're the only things left), 73 MILLION Sharks are killed every year so one very severe bunch of assholes can eat shark fin soup, river fish have mutated sexually; while genetically modified seeds and crops contaminate and proliferate throughout our ecosystems and alter the internal organs of farm animals; as our ice caps melt and our bees continue to disappear and die.

The signs are all around us- and you sure as hell don't need a Bible or a god to interpret them. Our planet is dying, and we are the cause...

As predatory capitalism continues to rape, pillage and plunder unabated at the behest of 1/10 of 1%. Welcome to the 21st century! Enjoy your weekend.

Speaking of human consumption, does this graphic from the Simpsons ring a bell?
