^^^Totally...but I'm a weirdo and would like to believe the planet will cleanse itself of us first.
oh the planet will cleanse itself of all the pollution and detritus of "modernity" I assure you..but that doesn't mean humanity has to take a hike... and we've been given recent opportunities to help her along... just after the 2008 crash for instance there were many different ways to "fix" the problem of a hyper-complex debt-fueled Global economy that relies on ever increasing pollution and ever increasing levels of poverty, from going bankrupt...well what did the powers that be do? they got their duct tape out and started fixing the parts of this economy and man-made environments that should have been allowed to wither and go away... we gotta let this thing wither and go away before mankind whithers and goes away. #jussayin
Aqua-culture farming. We have to raise more fish and take less from the ocean. Commercial fisherman could be put to work on massive coastal fish farms. This would let the ocean regenerate a little. We should create trash rockets or rockets filled with our garbage and shoot them out into space will they will freeze into giant space garbage asteroids. This will make the liberals happy. We should create a bio-weapon that kills everyone in China and India because they are the number one trash producers. This will make the Tea Party folks happy.
There. Problem solved. How f@cking hard was that?
Litter in the Pacific is the least of their worries right now. The Fukushima radiation will have far worse implications.
We could genetically create a giant snail (I'm thinking like Gary from SpongeBob) that eats radiation. Problem solved. Except when it becomes too giant and attacks Tokyo. Then Ultra-man will come down from space and destroy it for us.
