Space Debris

Thursday, January 28, 2010

The word "debris" sounds so nice, doesn't it? Let's call it what it is: garbage.
It's not sufficient to trash our own planet. No.
The insanity is boundless.

"World powers must find ways...."

Why were these messes, current and growing, completely obvious to me in the 1960's?
I'll tell you why.
Because it is completely obvious.

And I'll tell you what else is completely obvious. The world powers aren't going to do diddly to find ways to clean up the mess. They haven't yet, and they won't... because to do so would mean they have to curb... no, cease... the appetite for what passes as "progress".

Oops! and Potential Oops!

Thursday, January 21, 2010

Will we ever learn... in time?

In Swaziland, the King's sacrificial bull escaped injuring a few young warriors just before the Incwala ceremony.

...and in other news today (and it was the last paragraph that really caught my attention, inserted below):

Nuclear Waste Shipment Leaves Britain for Japan
"Under the terms of arrangements between nuclear authorities in Britain and Japan, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands and Switzerland, some 925 tons of foreign nuclear waste will be returned to [Japan] over the next decade, cutting the atomic waste stockpile in the UK by 40 per cent."
Note to self: Don't move to Japan. Hey... wait a minute! What part of the planet haven't we F-ed Up? My guess is that any pristine places still existing on Planet Earth have been circled with a corporate red marking pen on a map by a small-minded biped with dollar signs in his eyes.

PS - You make the connection between the bull and the nuclear waste shipment.... yes? just asking
