the oil spill in the gulf was an environmental crime scene, chernobyl, fukushima, the deforestation of the Amazon, the melting of the polar ice caps, all environmental crime scenes. a wicker basket on a street..NOT an environmental crime scene. Not even close. Abandoned cooker top? NOT an environmental crime scene. Its an abandoned cooker top. That’s it. Get a life, get rid of the stupid yellow stickers, get a new description because your over-dramatisation of what is essentially fly tipping is not helping, working, doing anything other than create more rubbish.
We are at that stage when the entire planet should be considered an environmental crime scene and our entire species are the guilty criminals so maybe we can focus on that? It kind of desperately needs our attention. This does not. Ok, so I am showing you photographs of this idiocy which means I think it is worth your attention but only really to show that it isn’t. Capiche? As it slips from the headlines, disappears from news feeds and is notable only in its absence from conversations it is pretty fucking clear no-one wants to think or talk about climate change anymore. As both the U.S and the U.K are in the process of dropping their commitments to environmental regulations that won’t even get us close to where we need to get to even if we did adhered to them all, we can all do nothing but sit back and watch the acceleration of our trajectory to our own demise, driven by the vested interests of a fossil fuel industry exerting their power and pressure on weak governments around the world.
So, with that in mind, who wants to go back to being outraged at the ridiculousness of little yellow stickers on random bits of rubbish? All in favour say aye and maybe just mentally apologise to future generations that we were paralysed by an inability to cope with the cataclysmic enormity of what we are fully aware of but cannot compute, comprehend, face up to, fix or even discuss. Even this mention of the unmentionable will probably be driving you towards some bit of clickbait showing you how shit someone who once looked great now looks….in fact, I’ll save you the trouble, here is a photo of Kathleen Turner today…feel better?
