It's even getting into the human food chain now Chris, take a look at this news story from the BBC "What are the long term effects of plastics in our oceans"
Indeed very moving. The fate of the albatross is well documented, but every individual who adds to the carnage thinks that it's only one piece of plastic, that can't do any harm. Off course it can and it does.

Nature will recover.......... even if it is without us
More than likely better off without us.

Slowly but surely, we are destroying our planet. The people who run the various countries of this fragile planet of ours, know the damage that is being done, yet they turn and look the other way. Why? Greed. They say money is the root to all evil. Just look around and see for yourselves.
I find it hard to be overly impressed. I grew in a heavy industrial area and river that was flowing through my town could provide half of Japan with oil that flown on it's surface. Believe it or not - there was fish in that industrial waste stream! Nature is strong, but greatly abused - I saw rivers tiled with dead fish ( that's much harder to stomach than a few dead birds in a couple of million of them). Those rivers recovered amazingly well as soon as they were left alone. Man is actually the most vulnerable link of the chain - and is no wonder why. It is most complex known one. Yes, we consume too unwisely. But how that would change? At the moment we seem to have only one universal answer to that - tax the goods, Co2, methane, oil, whatever. This will push the prices up and make goods unaffordable thus hurting ...humans. Then print more money to save the humans. Circle closed. All happy.
Very sad but now I will go get in my car, turn up the heating now that winter is coming, buy multitude of things made from plastic, getting my point yet......? !!!!!!!!!
We are at a point in our evolution where there is little we can do now WITHOUT affecting our lifestyles and of course we are not prepared to do that are we...!
I watched in dismay at someone in a supermarket trying to get a bunch of bananas into a plastic bag.
The amount of plastic packaging dumped by passengers on those those huge cruise ships doesn't bear thinking about.
In contrast to plastic there is this

If anyone can watch this to the end, they are much stronger than me. I was devastated and had to turn it off
