Wow. Watch this heartbreaking video about our plastic legacy, set to Queen’s Who Wants To Live Forever. Many of the images will be familiar, but it also contains haunting footage I’d never seen before. How does this make you feel?
Hide or Take Action?
Watching a video like this makes me want to go back to bed and eat an entire Entenmann’s chocolate fudge cake under the covers, plastic window box and trans fats notwithstanding. Who cares when we are so screwed?
And then, once again, I realize that I am living in the future instead of the present moment. We’re not screwed, yet. We’re all still alive, and there is work to be done. We can stop when we’re dead. For now, let’s smell the flowers (because there’s still so much incredible beauty in the world) and get back to the task at hand: loving this planet and each other in the best ways we know how.
