Americans are a small part of the world population but we use the most resources and play a large role in messing it up for other people around the world. The rest of the world want our lifestyle. As greedy as it sounds if everyone lived our lifestyle (with basic things like cars, televisions and refrigerators) the planet would go kaput. The thing that I try to wrap my head around is that I pull all this garbage out of the ground where it is litter, and when I dump it in a trash can it goes somewhere else... where that is I don't know but it probably gets burned (creating more pollution) or put in a landfill (essentially it is reburied somewhere else). A small portion of it goes to my club that collects scrap metal.
    garbage, like reading scat, can inform
    where does garbage originate?
    what is (considered) garbage?
    is garbage the product of a (particular) political system?
    what is the relationship between garbage and economics?

    That we, meaning the US, live in a throw-away society is well known; we pitch objects, people, societies, - everything we don't like (or cannot make a profit from) - into the garbage.
    Recycle? only old spent politicians, he he, and we re-elect them over and over because they help us do what we are unable to understand

    You all ever notice the fact that the poorer a people are, the more garbage laying around the street? It's true.

    Yet here you are in the greatest , cleanest country in the free world complaining that your very own car, your very own refrigerator, your very own television is ruining the planet and all the while lamenting that some others do without.

    So let me ask you this- how much garbage is there in YOUR street?

    It is obvious you have not traveled to Europe. I went to school in Switzerland 50 years ago and their "standard of living" was even then noticeably 'better' than the US, and still is so. A us quarter was silver, and so was the swiss franc; and both the same size and worth the same. Clean streets? Yes then, and still today.

    I have not traveled to Europe, but my brother's wife flew back through Heathrow a couple months ago. She said, and I quote, "what a $#!+hole that place turned into! I'm never going there again!".

    at base it is an educational problem, many many steps up the ladder

    Subscribe to "Mother Earth News". When finished with an issue leave it at a doctor's office, or keep one in your car and hand it to the guy that throws his empty water bottle to the ground in front of his toddler son at the entrance to an hiking trail.

    You know it's a good day when you not only have surface finds of Pulltabs, but pull two out of the same hole.

    The earth does well! Until we start trying to manage things.

    God as my witness! In the early 90s I used to carry a nylon laundry bag and pick up trash on the hike back up from the beach. One day as I was dumping it (a real full bag this day) into the trash can by the road a "State Park Ranger" pulls up hops out and asked me not to do that!?!? I explained it was trash from the trail, why shouldn't I dump it in the can? His response? Kid (<edited to a family friendly word) you not!!!! "You're filling up the can so others can't use it". Well, how about putting two cans there dufus? And there ya go! Look who's managing things! Like I've said, "Common sense should be classed as a super power since it's so very rare."

    "Ya' eh? Should I dump the other people's trash I just picked up back into the woods so that other people will have the opportunity to use the garbage can even though they just toss thier junk in the woods anyways? How 'bout dat? Hey- isn't it your job to empty the garbage cans? And what about the people who don't use the garbage can and toss their junk into the woods? Where are you on that one? Are you sure you work here? Let me see som I.D.."

    Man, I would have made that ranger into a hobby.
