Baby Seal Biafra
So sad, kids. Roughly 500 starving baby seal pups have been rescued up and down the California coast in the past two months. A normal number is 200 pups a year. Apparently there is no food for the babies in the water.
Yesterday I heard on the news that 21,000 children die somewhere in the world every day: one child every four seconds, 14 every minute.
The animals are starving, children are dying, the planet is heating up, and the multinationals are free to continue the devastation.
These babies, at least, are being rescued, rehabilitated, then returned to the ocean. Their rescuers are heroic. But the situation signals an even more severe underlying problem. Hope the Humans In Charge figure things out pretty soon.
