When Reality is Too Frightening, Call it a Myth


Sea of Plastic Bags

The newscaster says - surprise! -
that sea of plastic garbage
 - 100 million tons and growing - 
floating in the Pacific
is a Myth!
(Just like global warming?)
So much easier to believe,
than having to figure out how
to clean up this mess
we've made.

  2. A reality that we need to be reminded of over and over for sure. Such a sad truth here Sherry, but you are helping in the awareness. Thank you for sharing this with us. I hope all is well with you these days. I got my laptop, but am working on getting internet now. I have been so busy at work that I don't have time to get online like I used to. Hopefully I will have internet soon. Wish me luck. :-)

  3. Such a terrifying truth, Sherry. I can't understand people's need to lie to themselves. Do they think that it will keep them safe? Worse, do they really believe the nonsense they invent in order to ignore these horrors? I don't get it.

  4. i wish it was a myth but know it isn't - we really have to do something before we drown in our own waste - in germany you get no more free plastic bags in the shops when you buy something - they try to raise awareness
