Stolen Borrowed from William Teach:

As I’ve said numerous times, just because I do not agree with man-induced “climate change” doesn’t mean I hate the environment. From my favorite New Climate Denier website, Grist (yeah, I cite them a lot)
Back in 2012, 561,633 very nice people went out on beaches around the world and picked up the trash that other people had thrown there. They picked up an astounding 10 million pounds. That’s the weight of 5,000 cars. It’s heavier than the Capitol dome.
What’s even more astounding is that this isn’t even the most trash the Ocean Conservancy has collected in the 27 years this challenge has been going. Twice before, volunteers collected more than this amount of trash, measured in weight, and once before, they collected more total items.
More at the link.
It ought to go without saying: clean up your mess. You don’t have to swallow the idiocy — and hypocrisy — of the warmists to know that you shouldn’t leave a mess for other people to clean up.
My personal pet peeve: cigarette buts. For some odd reason, some smokers seem to think that their butts don’t count as trash, and they leave them everywhere.
